Rodent Removal & Control
Do you see signs or hear scratching in your attic or walls? Do you see pesky little critters running across the room? These little rodents can be notoriously difficult to control with do-it-yourself methods. For example, mice reproduce quickly while accessing any space of any size. A single female mouse produces between five and ten litters annually. As they chew wires and cause other damage to properties, they also bring the potential for health issues.
You might feel comfortable setting those old-fashioned mouse traps and feel the job is complete when you catch one or several. But trust us, if you find any there are more that follow.
However, we have great news! You can find a professional-grade wildlife removal service right in your backyard! Green Valley Wildlife Solutions provides mice, rat and rodent removal and control services in Ohio.

Better Safe Than Sorry
Diseases Mice Carry
Diseases mice carry often have long-term effects on people and may even be fatal. Residents should be aware of the bacterial and viral infections linked to rodents, such as:
Leptospirosis: This illness spreads through food or water tainted with mouse feces.
Plague: While rare, a bite from a flea or rodent infected with the bacteria can transfer plague.
Salmonellosis: The pests spread this mouse disease through contact with food and kitchen surfaces. Their urine and saliva carry the pathogen that causes infection.
Hantavirus: Deer mice are the main vectors of this illness. Once inhaled, airborne particles from their feces transmit the virus.
In addition, mice can spread diseases associated with the ticks, fleas, and other parasites they carry. Residents in mouse-infested homes and businesses may be at risk for tick fevers and Lyme disease.
Educating Yourself Is Key
Signs Of Rodent Problems
Rodents are known to gnaw on everything from baseboards to wires. These tiny rodents can leave chew marks on wood, cardboard, and other materials.
Like all animals, rodents leave behind a distinct smell. Rodent infestations are normally accompanied by a musky odor that gets stronger as the infestation worsens.
Tiny rodent footprints are another obvious sign. Check for these where dust collects quickly along baseboards, corners, and near food sources.
Both rats and mice are avid chewers, and their teeth never stop growing. Gnawed mouse holes are smaller with clear-cut edges, approximately the size of a dime. Chewed rat holes are larger with rough, torn edges, roughly the size of a quarter.
The oils on rodents’ fur can create grease marks, or streaks, on surfaces when moving. Look for greasy marks like this when inspecting for rodents.
Scampering, gnawing noises, and scratching and squeaking could all be signs that a rodent, or rodents, are in your home or business. Noises are often heard in attics, ceilings, and inside walls.
Odd Pet Behavior
Pets react when they hear or smell rodents in the house. If your dog or cat is scratching at the walls or staying in a particular home area, this can be an excellent sign of rodents. Taking note of where they exhibit this behavior is essential to locate them, identifying them, and looking for urine and feces droppings.
Rodent droppings are the most common and easily seen signs of an infestation. Mice droppings are usually no more than ¼” in length and are small, dark brown, with pointed ends. Rat droppings can be between ¾” and ½” long and vary in shape depending on the type of rat.
New droppings are shiny and putty-like in texture, while old ones are hard and crumbly. Varying feces sizes indicate that juveniles and adults are present, and lots of droppings may be an indication of a large infestation.
The fur and droppings of rodents can cause allergic reactions in some people. However, 97% of allergists believe a pest-free home can help combat everyday allergy problems.
