Quality Pest Control for Rats & Mice
Rats and mice can be a problem in urban, suburban, and rural areas. They infest old buildings and crowded, unsanitary spaces that exist in urban environments, however, they can also be found in newer homes where sanitary conditions exist. Basically, anywhere these pests can find an available food source, it is possible to experience a rodent infestation.
Since rats and mice eat practically anything humans eat, they get plenty of food from home gardens, fruit or nut trees, and even parts of some ornamental shrubs and flowers. Garbage disposals also attract rats into household and street sewer lines. Rats and mice have long been a problem on farms where food is plentiful and convenient nesting sites are both numerous and hard to eliminate.
The Top 5 Problems Caused by Rats & Mice:
- They eat food and contaminate it with urine and excrement.
- They gnaw into materials such as paper, books, wood, or upholstery, which they use as nest material. They also gnaw plastic, cinder blocks, soft metals such as lead and aluminum, and wiring (which may cause a fire hazard.)
- They, or the parasites they carry, (such as fleas, mites and worms) spread many diseases.
- Rats can damage ornamental plants by burrowing among the roots, or feeding on new growth or twigs. They also eat some garden vegetables, such as corn and squash.
- Bottom line: rats and mice are socially unacceptable. These rodents have been a problem for centuries, chiefly because they have an incredible ability to survive and are so difficult to eliminate. In addition, they are extremely compatible with human behavior and needs. That’s why the second you spot a rodent on your property, it is important to call an experienced pest professional.
A Range of Options for Dealing with Gophers & Other Burrowing Pests
Gophers damage your yard by tunneling under the soil, creating mounds, and eating vegetation. While they will most commonly go for yards with gardens or berry bushes, they may also chew on trees, vines, and roots. In addition to killing plants and making your lawn look bad at the same time, these tricky pests can also destroy sprinkler lines and utility cables in the midst of their tunneling. That’s why even though gophers may seem cute, it is a good idea to call for pest removal right away if you believe you see a gopher mound.
Common signs of a gopher in your yard include:
- Damaged Plants
- Torn-Up Gardens
- Bushes That Have Been Chewed On
- Dirt Mounds
- Broken Utility Cables & Sprinklers
In addition to gophers, Advanced IPM is proud to be able to handle other burrowing pests, such as moles and voles. Moles are blind insectivores (meaning they are not technically rodents) that damage your yard by leaving tunnels and mounds. However, they eat worms instead of plants, so if you see plant damage and a mound, chances are that’s a gopher, not a mole. If you see runways in your yard with small ridges jutting out, on the other hand, you may have a mole problem. Voles are similar to moles in that they leave tunnels and mounds, but they are not blind, tunnel more on the surface than underneath your lawn, and eat plants instead of worms. All three of these burrowing pests are most active in spring and fall, so these are the seasons to be on the lookout for them.
