The rodent can cause millions of dollars in damages to homes every year. Although you may feel overwhelmed when mice, rats, and other rodents start munching on your home without your permission. Because rodent teeth never stop growing, these critters need to constantly gnaw and chew to keep their teeth short. It’s a survival tactic. If their teeth grow too long, they won’t be able to eat.
For some reason, rodents really love to gnaw on electrical wiring. This is bad news for the homeowner. Rodents will be able to make their way to every part of your home, from your attic to inside your walls, and everywhere else you have electrical wiring. They’ll chew on the wires and make them bare. As you may know, bare wires increase the risk of a fire.
It’s suspected that up to a quarter of all fires attributed to unknown causes are actually started by wire-chewing rodents.
Rodents will cause damage to your possessions for a few different reasons. They’ll tear your clothing and make use of any other soft material in order to build their nests.
They can also easily chew through your wood furniture in order to get inside to hide. They’ve been known to make their way inside large appliances such as dishwashers and stoves to make their nests.
Both plastic and aluminum pipes are no match for rodents. Mice and other creatures can and will chew through your pipes whether as means to shorten their teeth or just to get through if the pipes are in the way.
Holes in pipes, such as your dishwasher pipes, can lead to costly flooding. If this occurs, you’ll not only have to replace the pipes, but also potentially replace the flooring, the drywall, and other ruined possessions, too.
Your air conditioning units, ductwork and other building places may seem a very inviting place for rodents to set up their homes. Rats and mice love to live inside of ducts and air returns, chewing through insulation and generally causing damage wherever they go. Not only that, but the diseased rodents’ germs may then be blowing through your house.
Attics and crawlspaces act as an invitation to rats and mice who love to practice chewing on thermal insulation. Not only that but if they are nesting in your insulation then you’ll eventually find that your insulation will be less effective. If rodents chew through the insulation around your water heater, they may be creating a fire hazard in your home.
Mice and rats are disgusting creatures that carry germs and disease wherever they go. Hantavirus, Salmonella, and Leptospirosis are just some of the dangerous diseases carried by rodents. Urine, droppings, and saliva from rodents all contain disease-causing germs which can also make their way into the air, resulting in problems with asthma and other allergic reactions.
Let us look at some evidence where rodents have severely damaged the homes and which lead to great monetary loss
Baby snapped playing next to dead RAT as army of giant rodents invade home
17th February 2017, Daily star
Carla Hazlett, 41, claims they have chewed her possessions and left droppings and urine all over her children’s clothes.
Carla said: “There are hundreds of rats and they are into absolutely everything. I can hear them in the walls and ceilings and they have dug holes in the cellar.
“I have found rat droppings and urine on my kids’ clothes in the cupboards so I have had to throw everything out.
“The rats have chewed all my carpets and it has cost me thousands – I had carpeted the house for £1,000 and I had to put a £1,500 three-piece suite outside because there were rat droppings all in it.
“The first time I saw one of the rats, I froze – there was two of them on the worktop in the kitchen just eating the cereal left over from the kids’ breakfast in the morning.
“It has just got worse and worse – I have been sat on the bed before just watching them run around me.”
Berkeley Neighborhood Deals With Rodent Infestation
NBC Bay area, 6th September 2017
Residents of an East Bay neighborhood were not sleeping easy Wednesday night. They had rats on their mind.
The rodent infestation was so bad in North Berkeley that one woman had to temporarily move out of her home.
The rats are causing a lot of problems for Christine Simon and her next door neighbor.
“It started in May,” Simon said. “I got mysterious bites all over my body, very itchy.”
Simon’s dermatologist narrowed her problem down to rat mites. They are parasites that live on rats much like fleas.
“They take up to two months to die on their own,” Simon said. “Two months of going to bed every night and being eaten alive.”
The control of rodents is an integral step to safeguard health, lives, food, property, and economics. The use of conventional fumigants, rodenticides is no longer considered to be an effective solution to get rid of the rodent infestation as these rodents are becoming increasingly resistant to them, the traditional baits and traps are also proving to be useless in preventing rodents from invading our homes. Therefore, we require a long-term and sure shot solution that can help prevent the damaged caused by these rodents in our homes.
C Tech Corporation can offer a solution to overcome this damage. Rodrepel™ is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-carcinogenic and environmentally safe, anti-rodent additive. The masterbatch of Rodrepel™ can be incorporated in wires and cables, gas pipelines and other polymeric applications to protect them from the rodent attacks. The wooden furniture and other structures can be protected by using Rodrepel™ lacquer which can be coated directly on these surfaces. RodrepelTM is cost effective and has a very long shelf life.
