Why Your Home is at a Higher risk for Rodents During Summer
Everyone enjoys summertime. It’s time for fun weekends and barbeques. As it turns out, rodents actually love summertime also! You might have thought rodents are more of a fall pest but they don’t necessarily take the summer off from causing trouble. They still need to find food and shelter from the summer heat. If your home isn’t properly protected by a professional Rodent company, it can be a great all-inclusive summer destination for mice and rats!
Rodent Population Will Increase During Summer Months
- Typically, rodents will maintain living outdoors in the summer
unless they find their way into your house. Since mice in the wild usually only
breed during warmer seasons, they will breed and multiply rather quickly in
your home if left undisturbed.
- The reason why we see these rodents less in homes during liveable temperatures is that there are enough food sources and shelter outside during the other seasons.
Why it’s Important to get Rodent Proofing Services for Mice and Rodents During Summer
We would assume that rodents would rather move into your home in
the winter for food and shelter that is normally easily available outdoors
during the summer and spring. Which is why you don’t usually hear much about
rodent issues in the summer. However, just because you don’t see them in your
home doesn’t mean those pesky rodents aren’t running around your home in unseen
areas causing problems.
- When ample shelter and food sources are available, mice and rodents
will breed and multiply relatively quickly throughout the summer and continue
to be even more of a nuisance throughout the year.
- During summer months rodents like to eat fresh food from crops and
gardens. If it gets too hot they will build shelter underground or find shelter
in your home.
- The summer rodent
population growth will only lead to a larger issue during the winter months
when mice and rats start to look for a safer place for them to call home. This
is why it’s important to take care of the rodent infestation before it gets out
of hand, call Rodents Stop today to control or prevent summer rodent
infestations in your home.
If you find rodents inside your home this summer, it’s very likely that they’ve been there the whole year. Mice and rats like to make nests where it’s warm during winter but with every seasonal change, they will move around. Rodents will relocate from the attic to the basement starting in early in the summer to shady cool places to nest and find food. call Rodents Stop today to control or prevent summer rodent infestations in your home.
How Can Rodents Get Into Your Home in the Summer?
How do mice and rats find their way into your home during the summer months? Rats and mice are more adventurous during summertime compared to other seasons. While they’re out exploring, roaming around, they find ways to get into homes, and if your home has what they need, they will stay as long as they can.
Rodents are naturally drawn to building structures because they can smell food and they can sense where there is a safe shelter for them. As they get closer to your home, they will pick up a scent that draws them into your home. Once they’re in, they won’t leave unless a professional rodent technician applies special rodent control treatments customized for your specific rodent problem. If you suspect a rodent problem, don’t let it escalate, call Rodents Stop for a thorough inspection of your home.
- Rodents can get into your home from a space as small as a dime-sized opening to squeeze their way into your house.
- They usually find these openings near window sills or door frames, especially if it is close to ground level.
- They also find gaps between utility wires and the side entrances of the home.
- Even small cracks and gaps in the foundation or baseboards could be potential access points.
- Rats and mice will even go as far as to chewing through walls to enter a building.
Why Are Rodents a Problem in the Summer?
Rodents will eat anything they can get their paws on, they particularly love pantries where dry grains are kept. They eat as much as they can and contaminate the rest of cereals, pasta, bread, crackers and any other grains they will find. If that’s not bad enough, they leave droppings behind which are a health hazard to you and your loved ones.
Even if they don’t have access to your food, they will gladly chew on anything else they can find. Rodents’ teeth are always growing, this means they never actually stop teething which gives them a constant urge to chew. They’ll chew electrical wiring (which is extremely dangerous), and on cardboard, fabric and anything else they like.
The worst of all is that rodents reproduce all year, if they are left alone for long enough to build nests, those rodent babies will terrorize your home for as long as they can stay. Don’t let rodent families take over your home, control the rodent problem right away. Rodents Stop will eliminate the rodents once and for all with a lifetime guarantee!

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.

If you have a rodent problem, these are the guys to call! The lifetime guarantee is amazing; what better way to eradicate rodents and make sure they stay gone forever. 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!
