Effective rodent control is more important than you might think – mice aren’t just cute; they can be deadly!
Not all pest control companies have experience with wildlife and rodent control. Here at Quality Control, Inc., our locally owned and operated pest control company, with locations in Mount Airy & North Wilkesboro, North Carolina, has over 30 years of experience dealing with these types of pests. We understand the dangers that exist without effective rodent control, not only for your home, but also for you, your family, and your pets.
One of the biggest concerns about mice and rats is that they chew incessantly, which can diminish your home’s energy efficiency and put it in danger of an electrical problem or even fire. Rodent control doesn’t just safeguard your insulation and wiring, however, as rodents also chew on wood and other building materials, conceivably causing structural integrity concerns and costly repairs to be necessary.
There are also many health concerns related to mice and rats, as they are capable of spreading more than 35 diseases, although not all are a threat in this country. The danger of foregoing rodent control is that these diseases can be spread through droppings, as well as insects such as fleas, mites, and ticks that have fed on the infected rodents. Common diseases related to rodents include plague, hantavirus, salmonella, tularemia, lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, and rat-bite fever.
Our rodent control service will take care of any rodents currently residing in your home, as well as include preventative measures to keep others from entering and taking up residence. While many people are concerned about the dangers of insects, you should know that rodents can be far more detrimental to your health and your home than they are, so call us for rodent control if you know or suspect you have a rodent issue. We also provide rodent control for businesses.
