Family. When those of us fortunate enough to call Springfield, Missouri home think about our city many of us think ‘family’. From the Miracle League Baseball Field where everyone, no matter what disability they may have, gets to ‘play ball’, to the 5K HeroRun sponsored by Bible Baptist College where a hero from our family of public servant teams is honored, family is the string that ties this tightly knit community together. Unfortunately bugs, rodents and wildlife often try to rob Springfield property owners of their food, shelter and serenity by infesting homes and businesses. And that's where our family owned and operated pest control company can help. We've been protecting people, property and products in Springfield and Mid-Missouri since our founding in 1956.

Just like almost every other place on this planet, Springfield must deal with nuisance and damaging rodents. Rats and mice aren't just unsightly, they bring with them a host of problems. Their need to chew can be damaging to your Springfield property and present a fire hazard if they chew through electrical wires. They can also move harmful bacteria from dumpsters and sewer pipes to sensitive food prep areas in your home or business. The CDC directly connects rodents to the spread of many different diseases including Hantavirus. These disease carriers can also poison food and carry parasites, like lice, mites, ticks and fleas into man-made structures.
Rodents in Springfield know how to avoid detection. You'll usually find a hole long before you see the actual culprit. Here are a few other signs to watch for:
Droppings in the backs of drawers and cabinets. Moist dark droppings indicate an active infestation. Dry grayish droppings are evidence of old activity.
Wet spots or the smell of urine. Rodent urine can be quite strong.
Chew holes in food packaging or boxes in the attic.
Footprints on dusty or powdered food shelves.
Thumping in the walls after dark.
Nesting material gathered together in an attic space.
If you discover evidence of rodents, contact Rottler right away. These are not pests that can be controlled with a few traps set here and there. With so many health-related dangers, it is essential to be sure that all rodents have been removed and all entry points have been dealt with. Keep your Springfield family and business safe with help from the rodent control experts here at Rottler.
