Rats and Mice can cause damage to your home and life in a plethora of ways. Fruit on the kitchen counter, insulation, electrical wiring, and even piping can be chewed by rodents and possibly create a dangerous situation in your home that is undetectable until it’s too late.

Health Hazards

Along with the destruction of your home, rats and mice can play host to a variety of diseases that can affect you and your family. A rat bite can cause someone to contract Rat Bite Fever, which while showing symptoms of the flu can end up being fatal.

Hantavirus is contracted from rats and mice simply by coming in contact with urine or droppings. This affliction can result in fever, chills, body aches, and severe stomach issues. If rodent urine enters the body through a minor cut, it is possible to contract Weil’s Disease, resulting in fever and even kidney failure. Lime disease is another disease that rats and mice are known for carrying. Lime disease can cause skin lesions, fever, headaches and more.

Rodents can reproduce at alarming rats and this is why the problem should be taken care of as soon as you see signs of a rodent infestation.

Avoid putting it off until it’s too late. Get rid of your rat or mouse problem with Critter Gitters.

Giant Rat Infestation


Rat Removal San Diego

Rat Removal San Diego

San Diego has a much more prevalent rat population than mouse population. Rats are far more crafty to trap and much more dangerous than mice. Homes most commonly get rat infestations when a female is looking for a safe place to have her babies. Once you have one rat in your home you will almost always automatically have many rats in your home. Rats will follow the scent of the female rat into your home usually in the same entrance that the female initially created.

San Diego residents love to eat healthy so we love our fruit trees. However the fruit that keeps San Diego residents healthy can also attract rats. Watch out for homes that have a lot of fruit trees with abandoned or rotting fruit on the ground. Rats will also eat fruit that is still on the trees, this will contaminate the fruit. If you don’t notice the fruit has been bitten it can make you extremely sick. We recommend that if you have fruit trees that you use rat guards on your trees. This will prevent them from climbing trees and eating fruit still on the tree. Also get rid of all fallen fruit on the ground. Even if you do not intend to eat the fruit you should pick it up and compost it or throw it away to prevent attracting rats.

Another thing that will put you at risk is an abandoned, vacant, or foreclosed home near your own home. Keep in mind the reason homes get infested is because the alpha male rats force females to separate to look for a place to nest. Vacant homes or homes that are not well kept are an ideal nesting place for rats that are going to give birth.
