A rodent infestation is one of the most unsettling things that a homeowner will have to deal with. In addition to the health hazard that rodents pose by contaminating food, they are also capable of transporting other home-invaders like deer ticks, which can carry Lyme disease. It may be weeks before a homeowner realizes that there is a rodent problem, and by then they could already begin their campaign of destruction, nesting in attic insulation and rendering it useless, gnawing on rafters and electrical wiring, weakening the home’s structural integrity and risking electrical fires.
Even after rodents have set up housekeeping, professional Rodent Removal in Columbia MD can formulate a plan to safely and permanently remove them, but the better idea is to prevent the invaders from establishing a foothold in the first place. One of the best investments a homeowner can make is to take advantage of an annual service agreement with pest control experts who will do regular, thorough inspections to make certain that a home remains pest-free. This “ounce of prevention” will help protect a home against not only rodents, but also termites, fleas, ticks, ants, bedbugs, and more. Any pest problems detected during these inspections can be quickly eliminated, using safe, family-friendly, EPA approved non-toxic products.
The pest elimination process begins with a phone call to set up an appointment for a free estimate. At this time, the experts in Rodent Removal in Columbia MD will determine, among other things, the location and seriousness of the infestation, as well as the pests’ point of entry. Since every infestation is as unique as the home and residents who are involved, a plan will be tailored to the specific case. All products used will be safe for children and pets, but will be effective in the removal of all rodent pests. By dealing with licensed and certified pest removal specialists, like Atlas Exterminator Co. Inc., the homeowner will be taking advantage of over 60 years of experience in pest removal. Although no long-term contract will be required, it may be prudent to take advantage of the one-year service agreement to ensure the home’s continued safety.
