Rodents

What are rodents?

The class of creatures called "rodents" actually encompasses a whole lot more than just mice and rats. It refers to any animal whose incisor teeth continue to grow, and so they must continue to gnaw in order to keep them under control.  In this group you’ll find mice, rats, squirrels, capybaras, nutria, chipmunks, prairie dogs and many more.  Mice and rats can become a genuine problem when they are in your home.

Why do I have rodents?

Are they dangerous?

Rodents can carry up to thirty-five diseases that humans are susceptible to, which is another reason to get rid of them as soon as possible. Cleaning up after a rodent infestation also requires a great deal of caution. This is necessary because of the possibility of fleas or mosquitoes, which can also bring those diseases indirectly to you, your children, or your pets. There is also a danger involved if you stir up the dust of their nest and breathe in bacteria.

Rodents can also damage your home or business. They can chew through some types of siding and other building materials and are well known to chew on electrical lines; thus, increasing the possibility of a fire. They damage other places as well and create holes and gnaw on numerous objects - especially on food or food containers.

"I wanted to drop you a note to pay a huge compliment for the way Steve dealt with Jennifer today. This morning we found a dead rat in our garage (literally as I was pulling out of the driveway, Jennifer came running & screaming out of the garage). I told her to give you guys a call and have someone come out to investigate. Turns out that we apparently have a pretty big rat & mouse problem in our garage - thankfully they aren't in the walls or attic. We also have an armadillo who has taken up residence under our house.

Steve was fortunate enough to be the lucky guy who got to deal with my screaming and almost hysterical wife. I honestly wouldn't have wished that on my biggest enemy :-). But, from all accounts, he was exceedingly professional, kind, and very calming for Jen.

Needless to say, we became McCall's newest customer today.

Please pass along my kudos to Steve. My wife will be forever indebted to him for removing a dead rat (or 2) from the garage, and for giving her great service.
