Pinnacle Pest Control Rodent Removal Services Can Help Stop the Spread of Disease in a Home

Pinnacle Pest Control is a Sacramento, CA-based company that specializes in many nuisance pest removal services such as rodent control. Rodent removal is a pest control service that offers many benefits for those with rat and mouse problems. One of the lesser-known of these benefits is that proper rodent control can help stop the spread of disease in a home. Few critters in California have more potential to spread disease than the rodents that are native to the area.

"Many people view rats, mice, and other rodents as destructive and dirty creatures that also can be scary to have around,” says the company’s founder, Jim Lopez. “What many people do not realize is that through their eating habits and behavioral patterns, rodents often bring with them the ability to transmit some health-compromising diseases. This is one of the more important reasons why quick rodent removal from a home is so important.”

Lopez went on to say that there is also more than one way that rodents contribute to disease spread in a home. He says that there is a common misconception that rodents can only spread disease through biting or scratching a person. A rodent does not have to do that to spread some diseases because just coming into contact with the organic and other matter they leave behind can do the trick. This includes potential virus transmission from contact with a rodent’s feces, urine, nesting, and saliva. Cleanup of these rodent leave-behinds can be hazardous in itself and that’s why it’s recommended to have a certified rodent removal specialist like those at Pinnacle Pest Control do the work. He added that rats and mice can also be fairly vicious animals when cornered and their bite has the potential to spread such diseases as rabies. One of the most serious diseases that rodents can spread is Hantavirus. Severe cases can even be fatal. There is also the threat of the spread of Salmonella, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus, and Rat Bite Fever. The company’s founder went on to say that many people are also familiar with the fact that rats have been the main contributor to the spread of deadly plagues over the centuries.

According to Lopez, there are many ways for someone to tell if they have a rodent infestation in their home. The most obvious of which is seeing nests, feces droppings, gnawed wires, and their irregularly shaped holes they use as entry points into the home or its rooms. He added that rodents are also nocturnal creatures so many times they can be heard scratching or moving about during the night.

The company offers many other reputable pest control services besides just rodent control too. Many of these are explained in detail on the company’s website and their Facebook Page. This includes ridding homes of such nuisance insects like termites, spiders, ants, fleas, and roaches. The company’s founder says they have also had great success eliminating bed bugs from the inside of homes. He stated that all of their pest control work is fully guaranteed and they offer their services to both residential and commercial customers.

This company is also used to getting glowing reviews from those that have used their pest control services. Randy Corvo stated, “I love using Pinnacle Pest Control for both our residence & business needs. Excellent service every time with Jason. Jason always takes the time to contact us the day prior and always makes certain everything is well taken care of. Great job and always a pleasure without any hassles.” David Mario Gutierrez wrote, “I am quite pleased with the service provided. The technician David T checked in beforehand to see if I had any questions or concerns and then proceeded to take care of my pest control needs. He was very well-mannered, polite. If I could give more stars I would.” Both of these 5-star reviews were taken from Pinnacle Pest Control’s GMB Listing.
