Rodent Infestations in Sacramento, CA

A severe rodent infestation in your home or commercial building is no joke. Rodents have the habit of going unnoticed for long periods of time. They are masters at scuttling by without being noticed. The common signs of a rodent infestation include:

  • Nibbled food, gnawed wires, or town paper/wallpaper.
  • Mouse or rat droppings
  • Hearing scuttling or scraping noises within the walls and ceiling
  • Small cracks or crevices within your floor boards

Rodents can also be dangerous, particularly to young curious children and the elderly. As they are carriers of a plethora of diseases, anybody with a weak immune system could be susceptible to picking up infections from an infestation. Rodents such as the Norway Rat and Roof Rat can also be highly territorial and aggressive, so it is best to leave their extermination to a trained profession.
