The Cost of Rodent Control

Discovering a rodent infestation in your home can turn from a minor annoyance into a nightmare in a hurry if steps aren’t taken to eliminate the problem. They are attracted to the easy source of food and water that a home provides, and love the warm and dark shelter of an attic. Unfortunately, once rodents take up residence in your attic, the damage they cause is often costly. Critter Control® of Fort Worth recommends seeking professional help if you suspect there are rodents in your home.animal-droppingsSome commonly damaged areas include:

  • Insulation – Rodents love using your heat insulation as nesting material, which often results in torn up, matted, and soiled insulation. This hurts the efficiency of the insulation, causing energy bills to increase significantly.
  • Wiring – Many rodents have teeth that are constantly growing, which leads to the critters constantly gnawing on anything around them. Wiring is a popular choice, causing power outages throughout your home and can even cause a fire.
  • Roof Structures – In addition to tearing up wiring, rodents will go after almost anything in your attic from soffits to wooden structural components – all of which can mean costly repairs.

If you’ve been hesitant to address a rodent problem because of cost, don’t. The amount of damage they can cause easily outweighs the cost of removal, and ignoring the issue can put you and your family at risk.
