Crofton residents take pride in keeping their homes safe for their families and welcoming to their friends. Residents are sure to keep their yards tidy and their homes clean in order to live happy and healthy lives. However, there are times when wildlife in the area doesn’t care how clean and orderly your home is, they want to visit anyway. This is why Crofton residents may be in the need of rodent removal from time to time.   Although some residents may feel ashamed of needing rodent removal for their home, they need to realize how common it can be. Having a rodent in your home doesn’t mean anything negatively towards the homeowner, it simply means a rodent found its way into your Crofton home. Rodents are small, so they can find ways into your home that you may have never even seen before. Rodents will following pipes that feed into a home to gain access. They will also find small gaps and cracks within a home’s foundation or basement in order to find their way in. Unfortunately, snakes prey on rodents and will follow the rodent’s path into your home as well. Once inside your home, rodents can make nests behind a wall or other open space that is hidden to the residents, causing structural damage and creating a health hazard. Rodents can carry a number of viruses, diseases, and parasites with them, making a long presence unsafe for you and your family.   So how will you know that you are in need of rodent removal? Droppings around furniture or in cupboards are a sure way to know that rodents are in your Crofton home.
