Rodent Facts – What You Need to Know About Rats

Rodents Stop is the best rodent control service company to protect your home from terrifying mice & rats in the Southern California area. Mice and rats can seem cute or fascinating like in a movie, but they can also be a threat to you, your family and your property!

Here are 8  facts about rodents you should be aware of:

●     Mice and rats can spread 35 diseases to humans. According to the CDC, rodents can spread salmonellosis, hantavirus, and rat-bite fever.  Rodents spread these diseases through their droppings, urine, saliva, bites, or through fleas or ticks which were once on a rodent.

●     Rats teeth NEVER stop growing
 – From the moment they are born, rodents continue to grow teeth throughout their whole life, this is why they are constantly looking for something to chew on, destroying everything in sight. Protect your home from costly rodent damages by contacting Rodents Stop for a home inspection and Rodent Proofing Services.

●     Rodents carry pathogens and viruses that are contagious to humans and can cause fatal illness.
– Hazardous diseases are spread to humans through rodent droppings, direct contact, bites, and being bitten by a tick, flea or another insect that has bitten a rodent. The health of you and your loved ones is priceless. Rodents Stop’s trained technicians know how to properly handle any kind of rodent situation. We provide clean up and sanitation services to ensure a healthy rodent-free home.

●     Rodents will try to chew through just about anything to find food and shelter.
– Mice and rats will chew through brick, wood, concrete, aluminum and even some types of metal to be able to access what they need.

●     Rodent Infestation populations grow at an alarming rate.
– If you think you might have rodents in your home, act immediately before they spread and multiply because the longer you wait, the more of a challenge it will be to eliminate rodents from your home. 

●     Rodents can squeeze through an opening as small as a quarter-inch wide.
– The skeletal structure of rodents allows them to fit into very small openings due to the fact that their skull is the biggest part of their body. Keep rodents out by talking to Rodents Stop about Rodent Proofing your home.

●     Rats can swim through plumbing and get into your home by crawling out of your toilet!
Certain species of rats are great swimmers, they can tread in water for days, and hold their breath up to 5 minutes at a time. This is why it is never a good idea to flush a rodent down the toilet, they will usually swim right back up.

●           Rats can grow as big as NINE pounds.
-The bamboo rat is known to be one of the biggest rat species that can grow as big as a cat!

Now that you are informed with these gruesome rodent facts, you can see why Rodents Stop is dedicated to helping the community one home at a time with maintaining a Rodent free home.

    I had a recurrent problem of rats winding up in my attic and had tried a couple of other pest control services over a few years, with the problem always recurring after a short while. I decided to give Rodents Stop a try after reading some of the reviews here on Yelp. They came out and explained how the (essentially temporary) measures I'd taken before would never really keep the rats away for good, due to the scents/pheromones that were remaining in my attic (leading them to keep trying to find ways in).

    For months I denied the overwhelming reality-I had a major rat infestation! And all my efforts to quell the populating rodents were in vain. After the rats had chewed into my couch trying to get the food left behind by my kids, that's when I knew the problem was bigger than I could handle by myself. All the rat traps, from mechanical to electronic were no match for nature biggest little beasts. It was like trying to get Miley Cyrus to just go away, it's just not gonna happen.

They check the entire perimeter of your home--top to bottom--to ensure it is completely closed off to any future unwanted guests. They will make as many house calls as needed to address customer concerns. Seriously, give these guys a call. You won't regret it!

    These guys really know what their doing. I had an ongoing problem for about 6 months, I could not sleep at night, my dog was driving me crazy. They came out and did their famous rodent treatment. No noises for about a month. Thank you guys.

    Zeev, Heather, Ivan and the rest of the team are fantastic! We knew there was some rodent activity in our attic, but didn't do anything about it until the nasty critters got into our home and actually chewed a hole in the hard plastic elbow of our dishwasher drain line! We called Rodent Stop, and Zeev came out for an inspection and gave us a quote the very next day. We were relieved to have a plan of attack, and Ivan and his team took over the next morning. They started early, and by mid-afternoon had cleared away all evidence of the rodent activity (including all the scent trails). In addition to getting rid of the existing evidence, the team had patched up all of the access points, and left some traps in all the areas that had shown prior signs of activity to avoid future activity. It has been a week, and we are ecstatic with the results. While we heard some scratching activity the first few days (which was likely coming from outside where Ivan's team had patched some access points), the scratching has now ceased. Zeev came back yesterday, and confirmed that all of the "inside" traps -- i.e., those in enclosed spaces (i.e., our living quarters, the attic and crawlspace) -- remain armed and undisturbed, which indicates to us that the patching did the trick. The only trap that went off is in an outdoor shed that needs overall repair, and can't be made rodent proof at this time. That trap did catch one mouse, which was removed and the trap replaced. Assuming there is no further activity between now and Friday, we'll move forward with the new insulation in the attic, and be done -- all in very short order. Thanks Rodent Stop!!!

    Rodents Stop made a lot of promises when they first came out, I thought it was to good to be true but wow, what an amazing service. From the office staff to the employees actually doing work. My problem was on going for about 2 years, I know right, who would deal with something for that long, the truth is that I tried other companies and they really didn't do much. Not to mention they didn't solve my problem. All other companies know how to do is set traps, they don't clean up, they don't seal openings, and they don't spray for disease. Also no one offers a life time guarantee like rodents stop. I like that. I feel like I just moved into a new house. It's been 2 months now and I'm actually getting some sleep at night. No dead rats in traps, no flies, nothing to do with rats or mice what's so ever. Thanks Rodents stop.

    I emailed them a couple of times desperate for service. It says they service the Los Angeles area (which should include Bellflower). I'm disabled and live alone with my small dog. I've been fighting mice for 2.5 years but am in desperate need for someone who really knows what they are doing and has a lifetime warranty because my dog and I have become infested with some kind of parasites that the mice brought in. I have several lesions and a huge infection on my back from the parasites. I left them my email and phone number with no response. I can't find another company with their experience, ratings, and guarantee and I'm really desperate for help and really disappointed they haven't contacted me. Again I emailed you last night, and got zero response today. I don't get it. As long as I give you the review you want, you ignore me? But as soon as you don't like my rating, you'll move heaven and earth to talk to me??

    We're selling our house and we needed to get take care of the mess that rats had done to our attic. Zev came out the next day and gave a fair quote for the job. The Rodents Stop crew came out the day after and took care of cleaning and patching the whole house in a timely manner. They were all very professional and very thorough. Heather on the phone was extremely delightful to deal with also. I highly recommend them!
