Mice are more numerous than rats and are more widespread throughout urban and suburban communities. Few people really like rats or mice, and no one wants them in their house. Rodents live everywhere outside and could enter at any time and unfortunately some of these sources may be in your home or business. Usually, most home invasions occur in the fall, not because of cooler weather, but because the seeds and plants on which rodents feed outside are gone. Rats and mice must then seek new food sources. Unfortunately, one of these sources may be your home. Mice are excellent climbers and are capable of gaining entry through holes around soffit vents and around cables entering the building, through holes in gable vent screens, and through turbine and box vents on roofs. Most garage doors on homes allow enough space for mice to fit underneath, as well. If you have a rodent problem, please schedule a free home inspection so we can solve your rat and mice problems for good. Call us today to schedule your free home inspection at 804 893 BUGG (2844).
Silverfish live in cracks and voids and are commonly found in larger numbers in attics, basements, and crawl spaces. They are also common outdoors in southern states. Homes with cedar shake roofs seem to experience more serious infestations of silverfish. This may be due to the additional molds that form on this type of shingle. Silverfish will travel long distances to locate a food source. Once a good source of food is located, they will stay in that same area. More available food results in more silverfish. Inside, silverfish will be seen occasionally or on a regular basis in kitchens, bathrooms, and other rooms. Let us help you solve your silverfish problems today. Call us at (804) 893-BUGG (2844).
