Rat or Mouse Problem? Call North American Pest Management
Many of us grew up with pet hamsters or guinea pigs. In these situations, rodents are cute, and we are happy to have them as pets. However, when you discover a wild rat or mouse in your home, it is not a welcome surprise. Rats, mice, and other rodents carry disease, such as the deadly Hantavirus, and can damage your home. If you have seen a mouse or a rat in your home, or if you see signs that they are nesting in your property, you need to contact an experienced Sacramento rodent control specialist right away.

Types of Rodents in Your Home
One of the first steps in eradicating your rodent problem is identifying the type of rodent that has invaded your property. Once we know what we are dealing with, we can create a customized pest control plan that resolves the problem effectively.
The most common rodents that are likely to plague your home include:
- Deer mice: are generally brown and white, and typically stay outside, but can be driven into your home during the cold winter months
- House mice: brown, and very small, house mice like to nestle into small spaces, and are known to do extensive damage by chewing through walls and electrical wires
- Sewer rats: also called Norway rats, they are driven inside by cold weather and are most often found in basements and attics
- Roof rats: common in California, they live in colonies and prefer to live in attics, roofs, and trees
In addition to the rodents themselves, many rats and mice carry fleas, and their fleas also carry diseases. For example, the fleas associated with roof rats are notorious carriers of the bubonic plague (though today, this is rare).
Signs You Have Rodents
The sooner you deal with a rodent issue, the better. Your first defense against a rodent infestation is in knowing the warning signs that you have rats or mice. If you see any of the following symptoms, do not dismiss them. Contact the experienced rodent control specialists at North American Pest Management right away. We will be there quickly to assess your issue and provide you with top-notch control and eradication services.
Call a rodent control expert if you notice:
- Rat or mice droppings
- Chew or gnaw marks on food packaging
- Scratching sounds in your walls
- Signs of a rodent nest
- Holes in baseboards or walls
- Grease, dirt, or oily marks along your walls and baseboards
- Gnaw marks on furniture and upholstery
If you see a mouse or rat in your home, it's a good idea to call a pest control expert. Rats and mice are difficult to catch, and if you do not identify and seal all the possible entry points, they will come back. North American Pest Management can provide you with a thorough inspection, and we will determine how the rodents are getting in and then seal those access points, prevent re-entry, and stop your rodent problem once and for all.
We Are Committed to Our Customers
Rodents are attracted to food. To discourage rats and mice from taking up residence in your home, you should avoid leaving food out, including pet food. Rats and mice are also drawn to things like open bird seed bags and piles of trash. It is a good idea to keep all of your food sealed, and any trash bagged and cleared from your home. However, if you do find yourself dealing with unwanted rodents in your home or at your commercial property, we can help. The North American Pest Management rodent control experts in Sacramento have the skill and experience needed to get the job done.
