Rodents have been an pest issue in Austin Texas for as long as the first settlements where built in Texas. Rodents such as Norwegian rats, mice and even squirrels will find there way into a structure( house, building, church or business). Once in the house or building the rodent or rodents will start to build a family very rapidly.
Rats and mice live with or close to humans in homes, farm and ranch buildings, grain storage structures, sheds and garages. They are objectionable in many ways:
1. They eat and contaminate food.
2. They damage and destroy property by chewing wires, which may cause fires. They
destroy labels on cans and damage sacks and other containers. They undermine buildings,
gnaw pipes, chew water hoses, and cut through mortar and cement. They damage wood doors, floors, walls, clothing and furniture.
Whenever it can be accomplished at a reasonable cost, rat-proofing is recommended as the most permanent means of control in Austin Texas.
Mice in Austin Texas
Mice are known for their shyness, but when you call someone a rodent, it’s an insult. It’s akin to calling them a rat. You’re suggesting they eat garbage, live in sewers and stand for all that is dirty and vile.
