Common Rodent Information Regarding North Texas Homes

There are common issues as it relates to rodents in homes in North Texas. Many homeowners are aware of this growing problem, but there are many that still are not. The current season is showing aggressive rodent population growth with limited, if any, decline. The fact of the matter is, rodent population pressure is here to stay. Dallas homeowners will eventually deal with this problem. Here at All Pest Solutions, we wish to educate about common signs, as well as preventative measures.

The most common signs of active rodents will start with visible sightings or noises. Many Dallas homeowners will see active rodents climbing down spouts, fences, and nearby trees in the late evening or at night. Most rodent activity will usually take place in the deep night or early mornings. So, much can be missed given their peak operating hours. Aside from visible evidence, most Dallas homeowners will hear activity in their attics (amongst other areas of the home). There are many situations, though, in which homeowners won’t hear noises. Given the normal habits of rodents, they may evade detection by climbing above the attic floor. Dallas homeowners need to remember some key signs in identifying this issue. The most common signs are tunneling/valleying of insulation, droppings, urine markings, and gnawing. Many of these signs can go unnoticed, but it is important to take the time every so often to look for these signs. Rodent infestations can show up quickly if left unchecked. Pest and wildlife professionals can look throughout the given year.

Dallas homeowners also need to keep an eye out for outside conditions for effective rodent prevention. At All Pest Solutions, we suggest keeping all vegetation cut off or away from the home. Heavy overgrowth gives rodents increased possibilities of home entry. It is always important to keep clutter away from the base of the foundation. These areas can and will give rodents cover and natural nesting sites. However, there are many situations that may hold rodents which cannot be changed. Flowering trees or shrubs, nut-bearing trees, and water sources will be at the top of this list. We advise limiting excess watering or feeding of birds, given that these sources provide needed nutrients to rodents. However, these sources are not always constant. As the season changes, so do the tastes and preferences of rodents.

The most common time of year for increased rodent activity will be in the fall and winter months. Many Dallas homeowners see much more activity in these months in comparison to the rest of the year. Although this may be consistent in the fall, many underestimate the threat for the remaining months. All Pest Solutions does see an increase in the winter months (November-February), but spring and summer continue to yield strong activity. Water and nuts will be plentiful in the spring, which means more rodents will remain outdoors. Many times, however, rodents will continue to harbor in the attic they entered in the fall. They will forage from these areas and return. Dallas summers can also throw another curve ball. Many homeowners believe summer heat will keep the rodents out. In some ways, this may be true; water sources will be limited in those months. However, in their search for water, they usually can find water from condensation of A/C lines. Always remember their tastes will change as the seasons change. Rodents will always adapt to their surroundings.

Ultimately, always keep in mind that rodents are thinking animals. They are much more intelligent than most people believe. They will adapt and overcome most of life’s obstacles, including human interaction. As populations grow, so do the needs. So, many homeowners already have rodent problems to which they are unaware. We encourage Dallas homeowners to spend a few minutes a month checking their surroundings. Evidence will be different in every situation. Newer homes will not be as susceptible to rodent pressure compared to older homes. Homeowners in older neighborhoods with established trees and water sources will feel the most rodent pressure. Contrary to popular belief, densely populated neighborhoods show stronger pressure than homes in the country. We see major rodent population numbers in the Dallas, Plano, and Allen areas. These cities, among others, have well established neighborhoods, as well as established rodent populations. Pest management professionals can identify source problems at any given time. All Pest Solutions has a wildlife team that is licensed and ready to tackle any wildlife needs.

STEP 1

The first step in eliminating a critter problem is to first have an accurate understanding of the problem itself. Noises in the attic are the most common of derived phone calls. Most common of those noises can be heard from the mid night hours to early morning and late evenings. When fronted with the noises, a general distinction can be made relatively easy based on the animal that needs identification. Most often than not, squirrels can be heard from the early hours and late evenings (i.e. 5-8 and 7-9) respectively. Squirrels are known to make entry throughout the middle of day as well in early stages of winter preparation. Rodents most commonly operate in the deep nights (i.e. 1-4 in the morning) respectively. Most often rodents are not normally the known to be a problem do to their late-night operating hours. Although many unhappy customers have the misfortune of the late wake up call. Also, something to keep in mind when studying hours of operation; during the month of January through May. These months are the birthing seasons for mother raccoons. This noise normally is unmistakable do to the sheer size of raccoons. We can expect baby raccoons from February to June. Removal of raccoons within these months will be very different from any other time of the year.

The next area that often comes into play is visual identification. As home owners, a routine air filter replacement may come to be shock when droppings around found in the attic. On top of droppings found the physical alteration of insulation can be a key identification. Squirrels will normally be centrally located to their main entry unless they have been there for many years. Squirrels will pack down the insulation around the outer edge of the attic adjacent to the exterior wall and soffit. Dropping identification can be difficult for squirrels do to the fact that like raccoons, squirrels use latrines (which are central locations of urination and defecation). Rodents, on the hand will be the easiest to identify within the attic. Do to the lack of efficient eye sight rodents must either feel or smell their way along their path to find their way. In doing so rodents will become lost within the attic and spread further and deeper throughout the insulated areas of the attic. Valleys and tunnels are most commonly rodent pathways. Also, keep in mind that rodents will use electrical and pipelines to navigate the attic space along with A/C ducts. Rodents utilize urine marking to find their way on these pathways and can be easily spotted (pictorial examples can be found in the All Pest gallery or provided). Simply look for dark brown smudges along the valley ways, tunnel entrees, electrical conduit, and (PVC) outlets to identify the current rodent activity. All Pest wildlife technicians will identify these areas and discuss them with the homes owners. However they are impossible to remove once there inside.

Aside from interior identification, exterior damage can be accessed from the ground by Dallas homeowners. Most obvious to home owners can be identified as gnawing of the eves ways. This can be seen on the fascia, soffit lines, as well as Cornish boards. Other areas can be tough to notice on the ground. Places like roof vents and soffits gaps can be hard to identify as a place of entry. New home construction today, most often than not, allow for direct entry of critters based on the sheer fact of natural gaps in those same areas. Large rodents can make entry to Dallas homes with gaps no bigger than the size of a quarter. Sometimes the natural gaps hide entry of rodents do to the fact that gnawing did not have to take place for entry. Secondary ground level areas of entry may consist of gaps below bay windows, a/c lines and garage door gaps. Most homes in Dallas Texas do not have proper finished garages, meaning the absence of baseboards and hot water heater finishing. Most garage also have holes caused by vehicles or tools that have been recklessly placed against the walls. These areas are prime locations for rodent entry. To prevent rodent entry, garage door exclusion must be performed. At this point of assessment All Pest Professionals can build a plan based on areas of entry found.
All steps discussed are included in the step one of all pest solutions full comprehensive identification and estimate process. Upon request, All Pest wildlife technicians will perform a full inspection of targets areas and activity within the attic, as discussed previously. A plan and program will be built to that homes exact specification. exclusions methods and exact fixes differ from house to house. A thorough inspection is needed to build the best exclusion program.

STEP 2

Step one of the program can be the most tedious of the steps. Once the All Pest representative goes over the options, the customer now has a decision to make. Upon request on an option an exclusion team will be deployed to start the exclusion process. At this point kittens, will be removed and placed in a safe location with bedding from their nest for the mother to come and relocate later. One-way doors and rodent traps will be set at the beginning of the process. Many times, mother squirrels or other inhabitants will remain still the day of the exclusion. The remaining squirrels will exit through their main entry holes and through the one-way door to freedom. After setting the doors and or traps (depending on the program needed) the exclusion program will commence. Most exclusion will be finished within one day’s time to eliminate re-entry before the exclusion can be finished. If exclusion jobs are prolonged further damage can be caused by squirrels attempting to re-enter the structure. All Pest professionals will deploy enough technicians to the finish the job as quick as possible to catch the critters off guard. If done right, exclusion will be effective immediately.

STEP 3

Step three may be optional depending on the situation, or more specific when rodents are the primary target. This step in vital for the removal of rodents after the exclusion steps. Depending on the time of year, rodents seek different items and foods items. The understanding of rodents can be tricky based on the understanding of these cognitive critters. Rodents can be difficult to trap even for most professionals. Alpha rodents are the smartest of their organization and they can reason with their surroundings. Knowing this, a thorough investigation of rodent objectives will need to be assessed. Rodents may be attempting to store sweets, protein items, or bedding materials. Identifying what rodents are looking for is important for the trapping programs. Many times, when rodents seek proteins, items will not stop and take sweets. All Pest professionals will assess what rodents are after and build their trapping program around their needs. Once we find what the rodents are searching for an extensive trapping program will be implemented to catch and remove said rodents(only after exclusion is performed). These programs usually take a couple of weeks respectively and will be monitored every 48 hours for optimal removal.

STEP 4

With the conjunction of step two and step three final removal and patch will be done to follow. At this stage, all rodent activity will have been removed and dormant. Also, any squirrels that would have been left within the attic would have already let themselves out through the one-way door. This is the final stage of the exclusion program. Here All Pest technicians will remove all rodent traps and or one-way doors, followed by a final patch of the last entry hole. Step four concludes the exclusion and removed of all known critters to date.

During this final step of the rodent exclusion process, we paint match all our exclusion plates and seals to match the exterior paint of your home. Most of the time, anyone looking at those areas from the ground will not be able to tell the difference as it blends in well with your home's exterior.

Most other options come with a three-year warranty to the areas fixed only. The warranty consists of fixing out fabrication only in the case of manipulation. Other areas could allow for entry and are not covered under the minimum warranties.
