Rodents are more than just unpleasant houseguests–they can actually do real damage to your home. Rats and mice have teeth that grow continuously throughout their lives, which they must keep ground down to a manageable length by constantly gnawing on anything they can get, including your furniture, walls, insulation, or even your wiring. Our team has seen countless examples of the serious damage that rodents can do to a property, and we want to help you avoid that same fate. The best way to prevent this kind of damage is to call an exterminator at the first sign of a rodent problem. The sooner our team can get the rodent extermination process underway, the better it will be for the overall condition of your home.

FAQs About Rodent Extermination
Unfortunately, mice aren’t as cute as the classic movie Cinderella may lead you to believe. If you hear scurrying mice or rats in your walls or notice droppings in your kitchen, it’s important to get rid of them as quickly as possible. Whether you’ve never had issues with rodents before or you’ve tried to solve the infestation yourself to no avail, our team at Downs Pest Control & Property Maintenance has responded to a few common questions we receive from homeowners and landlords alike.
How many mice could be inside my home?
If you’ve seen one mouse skitter across your floor inside your house, chances are that there might be five or six other mice hiding out in your basement, attic, or within your walls. It’s unusual for there to only be one mouse indoors, so even if you’ve caught one, there are almost always more lurking nearby.
Do I need an exterminator to get rid of a rodent problem?
If you want your home cleared of all rodents as quickly as possible, it’s in your best interest to call a professional immediately. If you try to use different DIY solutions that don’t work for several weeks, the rodents in your home have already had the chance to reproduce and increase the amount of damage they’re doing to your house.
