A rodent infestation is any property owner’s worst nightmare. While store-bought rat and mouse traps may prove useful at first, a more serious rodent infestation always requires the expertise of a rats and mice exterminator.
Rats and mice can cause damage, spread filth, and carry dangerous diseases. For these reasons, it’s important to call the expert rodent exterminators at Loyal Termite & Pest Control as soon as you notice the signs of rats or mice in your property.

The Importance of Rodent Extermination
We all know wild rats and mice are a gross sight inside any property, but they’re dangerous, too! Two of the main reasons why it’s important to use a professional rat exterminator for your rodent infestation are:
- Rodents can transmit illnesses. When rodents get into your cabinets, they can contaminate your food by leaving behind urine and feces. In addition to being gross, rodents carry diseases and pathogens! It’s also possible for people in your family to have allergic reactions such as hives or asthma attacks.
- Rodents may cause structural damage. Rats’ incisors never stop growing, so they are driven to continually gnaw on things just like a teething baby. A rodent can chew through just about anything, including some kinds of metal, most kinds of wood, and even wires, which can potentially create a fire hazard.
Does DIY Rodent Control Work?
It’s understandable why people want to use all-natural solutions for pest control, but they are not a lasting cure for rodents! Some of the most popular all-natural methods include peppermint oil, crushed peppers or onions, mothballs, dryer sheets, and more. Although these all may work to keep rats or mice away briefly, the scent that deters them will wear off. It would require constant application of these deterrents to successfully keep rodents away, which is why it’s recommended to enlist the help of a rodent exterminator.
