Rodents are a serious pest for homeowners throughout southeastern Wisconsin. These small mammals can gain entry into your home or damage your yards with ease, but they can be incredibly tricky to control. This is partly due to their nature, as often times they will go unnoticed until the damage has already been done. Rodents will frequently cause damage to insulation, which is typically what they will use for nesting sites. They will also create grease trails around areas in which they travel heavily.
Sometimes, the only way to tell that your home might be a rodent residence is droppings. These droppings are one of the most problematic parts of a rodent invasion, as they can harbor disease and even attract other rodents to the area. If droppings are found, the next step, and the most important one, is to find where they are getting in. Most rodents need only the smallest of holes to gain entry, which means that this is also the most difficult part of the job.
