Your Guide to Southern California Rodent Control

Almost one-third of Americans have had a rodent problem at home. Infestations are more common in the fall and winter, but they can happen at any time of year. Legion Pest Management, the Southern California rodent control experts, have prepared a brief guide to help homeowners protect themselves.

Risks Posed by Rodents

When rodents decide to move into people’s homes, they can cause many problems, making California rodent control crucial. Hungry rats and mice can eat huge amounts of food, and they contaminate even more food with their feces, urine, and hair. Any food that’s been contaminated by rodents needs to be discarded.

Rodents gnaw through floors, walls, windows, and other materials to create hiding places or to gain access to food. This can cause significant damage throughout homes. Worse, rodents are also attracted to wires, like computer wires and utility wires. With this habit, they can damage electronics or even start fires.

Rodents are vectors for serious diseases like rat bite fever, salmonellosis, and leptospirosis. Rodent-borne diseases can spread through contact with contaminated urine or feces, or through bites from infected rodents.

How to Keep Rodents Away

With so many risks posed by rodents, it’s essential to keep them away from your home. To avoid attracting rodents, eliminate the food they need to survive.

  • Remove food from your counters
  • Store pantry goods & pet food in rodent-proof containers
  • Wipe your kitchen counters regularly
  • Avoid leaving dirty dishes in the sink overnight
  • Store trash in a heavy-duty container with a tight lid
  • Seal up holes – mice can fit through a hole the size of a nickel, a rat the size of a half dollar

Sealing up holes in your home’s exterior can also help keep out rodents, though you have to be thorough, because a mouse can fit through a hole the size of a nickel. Look for holes around doors, windows, and utility entry points.
