Rodent Control Charlotte NC
Common Rodents in Charlotte, Concord NC, and Surrounding Areas
The three rodents we see the most often in our area of the Carolinas are common House Mice, Norway Rats and the Roof Rat. Identification of the correct rodent species invading your home is a crucial first step for proper rodent control. A thorough inspection of the home is also required in order to locate possible entry points, harboring sites, and any food and water sources. Our Charlotte rodent control professionals utilize bait placement and/or non-toxic control measures to best suit your needs.
Why Are Rodents Harmful?
- Rodents are responsible for the contamination and destruction of 1/3 of the world’s food supply.
- They are also carriers of many diseases and are estimated to be the cause of approximately 25% of “undetermined” structure fires.
- Additionally, rodent control has been credited as one of the top 3 reasons that the average life expectancy has increased throughout the years.
What threats can mice and rats pose to me or my home?
Both mice and rats are public health pests and are known to harbor and transmit many diseases such as Murine Typhus, Leptospirosis, Rickettsialpox, Rat Bite Fever, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis, Salmonella and Plague. These have all been associated with rodents and are spread by their contamination of surfaces with their feces, urine and even in some rare cases, bites. In addition to the health risks associated with rodents, their gnawing can pose a risk to homes. Rodents gnaw to wear down their teeth throughout their lives. This gnawing has even led to wires being chewed to the point of starting fires.

Try These Rodent Control Tips:
Reducing low lying plants and overgrown grass reduces pest pressures. Wood piles and debris may also provide harborage. Wood piles should be moved away from the home. Piles of debris should be discarded. Birds feeding at bird feeders often spill seed which attracts rodents. Switching to block-style bird seeds or removing feeders will reduce rodent food sources. Standing water around homes should be eliminated, especially with rats as they require it to drink daily. Sealing of gaps and installation of effective door sweeps will further reduce the likelihood of pest entry. In recent university studies, ultrasonic devices have been shown to be ineffective in repelling pests including rodents. Eliminating moisture is paramount to pest control. Check out our crawl space encapsulation service for your Charlotte, NC home, as providing an extra barrier may be just the ticket to keeping out the worst of rodents or pests that are looking to make entry.
