Rodent Rundown: Keeping These Dangerous Pests Away From Your Eugene Property

Rodents are some of the most dangerous pests you can pick up on your Eugene property. Professional rodent control in Eugene provided by Ultimate Pest Control is the best way to combat these destructive pests.

Signs Of Rodent Activity: How To Detect A Problem Early

Rodents in Eugene are tricky to deal with, and these pests will easily invade your Eugene property without you even noticing it at first. It’s important to keep an eye out for signs of rodents, as detecting a problem early and engaging in proactive removal helps to prevent health risks and costly property damage caused by rodents.

Some essential signs of rodent activity to look out for include rodent droppings around food storage areas, cabinets, and kitchens; chewed or gnawed food packaging and stored items like cardboard boxes; and nesting material such as shredded paper, fabric, and plants found around your home. You may also hear noises coming from the walls of your property, especially at nighttime, or notice holes chewed around walls and floors.

The moment you notice any of these rodent signs, it’s time to contact Ultimate Pest Control for rodent control you can rely on.

Rodent Dangers: Health Risks And Property Damage

Dealing with a rodent infestation is more than a nuisance; it can be dangerous. Rodents are known for spreading disease, and rats and mice are thought to spread more than 35 different diseases to humans. As rodents invade your property and scavenge across surfaces and through food storage areas, they leave behind bacteria and pathogens that may increase your risk of salmonellosis, hantavirus, and tularemia, among many other health risks.

Additionally, all rodents have a pair of constantly growing front incisors, and they must constantly gnaw to keep these teeth in shape. Over time, a rodent infestation on your property will lead to significant destruction as these pests chew through wood, brick, concrete, stored items, and anything else they can reach while invading your property.
