New Braunfels Total Rodent-Prevention Guide

There are many problems in life that get worse when you do not address them. Rodent infestations are one of them. Once rodents find their way into a home, the problems they cause do not stop. They only get worse until something is done about them. We are here today to help you identify and treat for common rodents around NewBraunfels. To start, here is what kinds of rodents live in our area.

Kinds Of Rodents In Braunfels

There are many kinds of rodents that live here in Braunfels. We have large rodents like gophers; medium rodents like rats; and small rodents like mice. The three most common rodents that invade homes in our area are house mice, roof rats, and Norway rats. These furry pests invade more often because they prefer the comfort of our homes over living out in the wild. They are also well equipped to invade homes because of their dexterity and sharp teeth.

Is The Fear Of Rodents Normal?

Are you afraid of rodents like rats and mice? Many people are. The question is, is it logical to fear these pests? We would say that it is, to an extent. You do not have to be afraid of a mouse or rat charging you in an aggressive way. The only time rats or mice will bite is if they feel trapped. What you should worry about is the many diseases common rodents in our area can carry and spread. A few you should know about are salmonellosis, hantavirus, Lyme disease (from ticks), and murine typhus (from fleas).

The Difference Between Pet Rodents And Wild Rodents

There is a good chance that you have a friend or family member that owns a pet rodent. Even knowing that rats and mice can live inside homes without causing trouble might make you wonder why wild rodents are such a big problem. This difference mostly lies with freedom. When allowed to roam freely inside and around homes, rats and mice get into a lot of trouble. They crawl through filthy areas, eat dying animals and other bacteria-ridden items, and tear apart things like fabric, paper, and insulation to build their nests. All of this behavior is annoying, dangerous, and/or destructive. 

How To Keep Rodents Away From Your Braunfels Home

It does not take long for a few adult rodents to turn into dozens of tiny rodents. If these pests are not already inside your New Braunfels home, we recommend taking some steps today to keep them away from your Texas property.

  • Use a caulking gun or some liquid cement to fill in holes, gaps, and cracks around your home’s exterior foundation.
  • Make sure all of your doors and windows are in good condition and protected with door sweeps, weatherstripping, and screens.
  • Clean up your yard and do your best to keep up with your lawn and landscaping.
  • Keep your home as clean as possible and pick up food messes as they occur.
  • Store all of your leftovers, pet food, and accessible pantry items inside airtight containers.
  • Make sure your trash cans have rodent-proof lids.
