Do you keep hearing scratching behind the wall, does your cat or dog mysteriously stare at the ceiling at night, or have seen strange oily marks on the floor? There’s a good chance rodents have made their way into your home and you should check your cupboards, floors, and shelves around potential food sources for droppings to confirm. Mice droppings tend to be small, like grains of rice, whereas rats leave pellet-like waste.

These small animals seek refuge from the elements and end up in your walls, destroying your home. Because they chew threw just about anything that gets in their way, they can also pose a fire hazard if they get into the wires. When rodents come calling, call the exterminators, as they can be very bad for your family’s health. They are known disease vectors that can contaminate your food and pose a risk of bites or scratches to small children and pets.

These are just some of the diseases that can be spread by rats and mice that you should keep in mind if you’re delaying calling the exterminator.

#1 Rate Bite Fever – Contact with a dead rodent or a scratch or bite from a live one, while rare, is a greater risk for children or pets that don’t know well enough to avoid these rodents. A scratch or bite can spread bacteria that leads to a serious infection, sometimes even a fatal one.

#2 Hanta Virus – This is a lung infection that can be contracted by breathing in dust that’s been contaminated with rodent urine or droppings, or touching rodent saliva, urine, or feces. It results in fever, chills, coughing, and fluid build up in the lungs, and it has a fatality rate of 4 in 10.

#3 Salmonellosis – Salmonella poisoning can occur if you eat or drink from a source that has been contaminated by rodents.

If you want to keep your family safe from these and other threats that come with co-habiting with rodents, look for an exterminator that uses chemicals that are safe for your pets and family. In Toronto, you can also get a free, no-obligation quote over the phone from companies like Power Pest Control. They offer 6 to 12 month warranties on treatment, where they follow up at no extra cost if the problem re-emerges. If you share a party wall with a neighbour or live next to a woodlot where rodent populations can go unchecked, Power Pest Control recommends the 12-month option.

Besides rodents, cockroaches, ants, bed bugs, wasps, hornets, bees, centipedes, millipedes, spiders, and flies are all common pests in Ontario, but they can be eliminated by an exterminator licensed by the Ministry of Environment. A successful strategy used by the professionals in pest control Toronto residents call on includes physical removal and prevention as well as baiting, trapping, and pesticide use.
