Catalina Foothills Pack Rat & Rodent Control
No doubt you’ve already heard the catchy Arizona Pest Control jingle about pack rats & rodents: “You can’t hide, you can’t run!” In business for more than 70 years, Arizona Pest Control knows what it takes to rid you home or business of disease-carrying, damage-causing rodents.
Even with Tucson’s moderate climate, rodents will move into your home in search of food, water and shelter. While they vary in size and nesting habits, they all share the ability to cause damage to houses and spread diseases such as hantavirus and other pathogens, transmitted by infested fleas, ticks and feasting insects. Rodents can also infect food supplies, spreading salmonella to humans.
Most common in the Foothills are pack rats (also called wood rats), which cause relatively minor structural damage (unlike termites), but can and will chew and destroy wiring and landscaping. Their name comes from their penchant for collecting a variety of objects for their nests.
The key to rodent management is to deny them shelter and nesting sites. Here are some tips to help keep them from choosing your home:
- Avoid storing boxes and other items on patios or along the sides of buildings and walls, as these give shelter to pack rats
- Store firewood off the ground and away from walls or other obstruction.
- Keep carports clear of stored items to eliminate hiding places.
- If pack rats have been in a car engine compartment, have it steam-cleaned to destroy the scent and leave the hood open and lighted at night. Leaving the carport light on at night will also help.
- Did you know a pack rat can squeeze through a half-inch hole? Be sure doors fit correctly and have door sweeps to help prevent entry. And ensure windows are screened properly.
- Exhaust fans and ventilation vents on the roof/attic level should be screened.
- Keep ground-cover plants cut low to the ground.
- Do not allow prickly-pear cactus, agaves, aloe, yuccas and other cacti to grow in tight groups. Thin out dense cactus and landscape plantings. These make perfect pack rat nesting areas.
If these efforts don’t help keep these pesky critters off your property, or if they’ve already managed to move in, call family-owned and operated Arizona Pest Control. Our technicians may not sing the jingle upon arrival, but they know how to make rodents feel unwelcome and “pack up” for good! Call 520-886-7378 for a free, no-obligation estimate.
Catalina Foothills Termite Control
If you have the need to terminate termites in your home, call Arizona Pest Control. With more than 70 years’ experience, our termite team has earned a reputation of getting the job done right. Termites are "silent destroyers" and will do damage without ever being seen by a homeowner. That’s what makes them so destructive... until it’s too late!
Although termites are not poisonous or toxic, they are very devastating to property. In fact, termite infestations are responsible for more than $5 billion in property damage every year – and the longer a home or business owner ignores the signs of termites, the higher the cost is to treat them.
There are signs to look for: If you see any evidence of termites in your home – like mud tubes, discarded wings, blistering wood or paint, or frass (droppings) – it’s time to call Arizona Pest Control for a professional termite inspection. Careful assessment will reveal which of several termite species (subterranean, drywood or dampwood) may be in your home and which treatment will be most effective.
