The Most Effective Rodent Control For Sacramento Properties

If you’re anything like many people, you mostly picture the Hollywood sign, celebrities, sunshine, and beaches when you think of California. The last thing that comes to mind is rodents. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but California is not all “lights, camera, action!” Sacramento is a city within the Golden State that attracts not only your favorite celebs but also a significant attractor of rodents!

Rodents are animals that can elicit a wide range of emotions in people. Some adore these hairy creatures and even keep them as pets, while others find them repulsive and frightening. Although certain species of rodents are suitable for keeping as pets, the rodents that find their way onto your property are not cute and harmless; they're pretty destructive. Learn how to keep rodents out of your home or business in Sacramento, California, because they can be highly troublesome and even dangerous pests.

Mice and rats are the two most common rodents found in homes throughout the region. Even though they are different species, there are a lot of similarities between them, including how they behave and their appearance. Mice and rats have the potential to cause harm to your health as well as damage your property. They can also be a challenge to remove. While rodent infestations are pretty common in Sacramento, it is highly uncommon to have problems with both simultaneously.

If you're experiencing rodent problems of this magnitude, contacting your local Sacramento pest control should be your top priority.

About The Rodents In Sacramento

When it comes to California rodents, two species of rats cause problems for homeowners in Sacramento: the Norway rat and the roof rat. It is easy to recognize a Norway rat because of the clumsy manner in which it moves along the ground. Roof rats favor living at higher elevations than other types of rats do. As a result, you can find them on rooftops and attics, which is also how they got their names.

Because of the COVID lockdowns that have taken place over the past two years worldwide, Sacramento has seen a considerable increase in the number of rat infestations.

What is the cause? Rats that had previously found food supplies in restaurant dumpsters now have to search for food in other areas, which has driven them further into the suburbs, housing complexes, and residential areas. It is more important than ever to have access to the necessary rodent-fighting experts to protect homes and families throughout the state. Neighborly Pest Management is here to do just that.

Five Eco-Friendly Rodent Exclusion Tips For Around The Property

While you may enjoy hosting guests, rodents are guests you'd rather not have in your home. In addition to causing damage to your property, rodents carry diseases and infections that might endanger your family's health. The good news is that eliminating your rodent problem isn't a difficult task. Plus, you can do it in an eco-friendly way. Follow these five environmentally-friendly exclusion tips:

  1. Seal entry points: Use caulk or weatherstripping to patch up small gaps in your doorways, foundation, and siding to keep rodents out. To discourage entry without limiting airflow, plug vent openings with steel wool and cover holes with duct tape. Mice cannot chew through steel wool, which will naturally deter them.
  2. Use essential oils: Rodents dislike strong-smelling oils like peppermint and clove oil. Put the essential oil of your choice on cotton balls and place them in areas where you've seen rodent activity, such as drawers, cabinets, and under sinks, for best results. 
  3. Get a Cat: One of the best mouse deterrents for mouse or rat removal is cats. If you like cats and don't have one, adopt one to reduce your mouse and rat population. If your neighborhood doesn't allow cats, reach out to a friend who has a cat and ask if you can have some of their used kitty litter to place at your front and back doors. The smell of cat urine repulses rodents. You can also get pure ammonia and soak cotton balls in the solution, as it repels mice and rats because it smells similar to a predator's urine. Just be sure to place the cotton balls in a rodent-friendly area where pets or children can't access them.
  4. Turn to sound: Ultrasonic devices can deter rodents. These deterrent tools are also safe for children, pets, and other animals. Place them wherever you've seen mouse activity. You can find these devices at your local hardware store.
  5. Turn to the pros: Contact Neighborly Pest Management if there are rodents on your property. We will assist in locating their nesting and food cache areas, identifying the entry points, and removing them from your property without causing any more harm than they already have. Additionally, we'll assist you in locating the source of the infestation so you can prevent all rodents from returning in the future.
