Picture this! It’s late at night and you’re relaxing in bed with the lights out, ready to drift off to sleep. Suddenly, you hear something that makes you sit up—wide awake.

Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore
When rodents have invaded your home, they’ll let you know about it. One tell-tale sign is the skin-crawling sound of scratching coming from inside your walls. Another might be the lovely little presents they leave all around your home once they’ve made it into the interior.
And then there’s the chilling discovery of bite marks in food containers and in the wires hooked up to your electronics. Or maybe even holes you’ve never seen before showing up in your walls. Each of these signs can be an indicator of an infestation.
Rodent Risks You’ll Want to Avoid
In addition to just being gross, random rodents can also cause a lot of serious problems inside your home. They can do real damage to the walls as well as your electronics, and their droppings can make your place unsanitary. Additionally, these pests and their droppings sometimes carry diseases and parasites, threatening the health of you and your family members (including pets). Also, if one dies inside of your walls, it can leave an unbearable stench that lasts a very long time. And this can lead to even more infestation issues from pests attracted to the smell.
How a Rodent Control Company Helps Baton Rouge Homes
At Arceneaux, we understand the many problems rodents can cause for homeowners. Beyond the stress of having uninvited guests in your home, they can also be hazardous and destructive. And they’re pretty intelligent, which makes it hard for most people to find the right approach for removal.
This is why our pest control experts use a combination of glue boards, baits, mechanical traps, and exclusion techniques. This multi-pronged approach can take care of the rodents that are already inside your home. And it can potentially prevent new ones from finding their way in, too.
