Rodent Control In Wilmington, DE

Discovering Rodents In Your Wilmington Home

Are you a dog person or a cat person? How about rodents? Some animals just make better pets than others, and although mice and rats make good pets when kept in cages, they become unwanted intruders when allowed to roam freely throughout your home. Rodents are small pests capable of causing massive damage and spreading bacteria wherever they go. Not only that, but rodent problems are also known for quickly spreading to a large-scale infestation in no time at all, and it is critical to get ahead of rodent activity before it becomes a full-blown infestation.

Our Wilmington, DE Rodent Control Service

Mice, rats, and other rodents cause damage and spread diseases wherever they live, especially if left unchecked. Delmar's pest and wildlife experts specialize in running our rodents and keeping them out!

A small rat's nest can quickly blossom into a full-scale infestation in a short amount of time, causing a serious threat to your health and property. An effective rodent, mouse, and rat exterminator goes beyond treating the existing problem and will perform a thorough inspection and seal all entry points where rodents are entering the home.

Mice are the most common rodents. They are small, nocturnal animals. Their bodies rarely exceed two inches long and one ounce in weight. They are usually grey, but some may appear darker. Mice can jump approximately 12 inches vertically and climb almost any vertical surface. These small creatures have poor eyesight, so they use their long whiskers as sensors along with their sense of smell and sound.

Beyond carrying diseases, mice and rats can cause a number of frustrating problems in your home. They will:

  • Chew through electrical wires, causing fires, and damaging expensive property.
  • Tear up insulation, drywall, and other structural elements of your property.
  • Die in your walls, resulting in bad odors and attracting wildlife.
  • Make disturbing noises in your walls and attic.
  • Contaminate food with droppings.

Where Are All These Mice Coming From?

Mice will usually nest in the insulation in attics, inside stoves, and under refrigerators. They will not travel far from their nest. A mouse will usually eat anything a human will eat, as well as cardboard, insulation, and sheetrock. Mice are known to spread things such as dermatitis, dysentery, meningitis, rabies, spotted fever, and many others.

Other types of rodents, such as rats and squirrels, can cause greater damage to your property because of their size and spread the same diseases as mice. Trust the rodent exterminators at Delmar to remove these animals before they cause a larger problem!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Rodent Control

Rodents are mammals characterized by a large pair of powerful front incisors that never stop growing. To keep these teeth from overgrowing, they must maintain them by gnawing on any objects they encounter. Mice and rats are both common types of rodents we face here in Wilmington.
