Rodents on your property
Rats and other rodents are a common problem in homes. They can cause a lot of damage to the structure of your home, ruin gardens and be found in attics, behind walls or even in your basement.
Exterminating them is not always an easy task. You need to know what type of rodent you are dealing with and know where they are hiding.
The most common types of rodents are rats and mice. Rats are typically larger than mice and have tails that are longer than their body length. Mice on the other hand have tails that are about the same length as their body length. Rats also tend to be nocturnal animals, while mice stay active during the day time hours.
As a homeowner, you can take steps to prevent rodents from entering your home. Rodents often enter through small openings in the foundation, walls, or roof. You can seal off these areas with wire mesh and metal flashing. If you have a rodent problem in your home, then you should contact your professionals at Akim Pest Control for assistance.
