The Damage Burrowing Rodents Can Cause

The sooner you act, the better the chance we can mitigate—and hopefully prevent—the damage burrowing rodents cause. Damage including: 

  • Landscape destruction: Their extensive tunneling can disturb the roots of plants and grass, leading to brown patches and uneven ground. This can significantly diminish the aesthetic appeal and value of your property.
  • Structural damage: Rodents can undermine building foundations, leading to costly repairs. The presence of tunnels can also cause soil instability, presenting a risk to the structures above.
  • Crop loss: For those in agricultural sectors or maintaining home gardens, burrowing rodents can cause significant loss. They feed on various crops, and those feeding habits can lead to diminished yields and financial losses.
  • Disease transmission: Burrowing rodents are known carriers of various diseases, some of which can be transmitted to humans and pets.

Don't hesitate to seek help from the burrowing rodent control technicians in our Spokane office.

The Signs Burrowing Rodents Are Present

Timely recognition is often the key to preventing extensive damage. Here are some key indicators to watch out for:

  • Plant damage: Rodents, such as voles and gophers, feed on roots, bulbs, and tubers, leading to wilting or dying plants. The presence of unexplained plant damage could indicate a burrowing rodent problem.
  • Soil mounds: These mounds are typically created by moles and gophers as they tunnel underground. The mounds can disrupt your lawn or garden's appearance and make it difficult to maintain. 
  • Chewed wires or pipes: Rodents have strong teeth that they use to gnaw on various materials, including wires and pipes. This behavior can lead to serious issues, such as electrical malfunctions or water leaks. 
  • Noise in the walls or floors: You might hear scratching, squeaking, or rustling noises, especially during quiet times. These sounds might be a sign of rodents moving or nesting within your residential or commercial property.

    We have struggled with earwigs in our home and snakes in our yard, even coming into our garage. We tried a door-to-door pest control company for over a year, but they weren’t able to resolve the issue, even with retreatments. My husband called Backwoods Pest Control and Brian came out to do a consult for us and gave us some snake scram granules the same day, knowing we were having a major issue. He was very knowledgeable and outlined a comprehensive plan to help us. We haven’t seen a snake since (we had been seeing multiple snakes each day up to that point). We signed up for the service and less than a week later, Krista came out. She was so friendly and kind and listened to our concerns, making adjustments based on the information we gave her about where we’ve been seeing bugs, etc. She let us know what to expect and was also able to tell us why our past treatments for earwigs hadn’t worked. We already saw dead bugs in treated areas before she even finished treating the rest of the house. We highly recommend Backwoods Pest Control!
