Paramount Rodent Control Services Not only are most people disgusted by the thought of rats or mice in their home, but these rodents also pose a number of health threats. Paramount rodents can carry the following diseases: Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome Lassa Fever Leptospirosis Plague Salmonellosis Rat-Bite Fever Tularemia Even if a rodent doesn’t carry a disease, they’re still not something you want crawling around in your home. It is not uncommon to find chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are involved. Rats will chew through anything that sites between them and food. Rats aren’t afraid of chewing through your walls to get to food. Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any Paramount rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place.
