Scott wildlife control tip of the month: The Risks of Animals Chewing on Electric Wires
Animals, whether Scott animal control rodents or other ones with sharp teeth, can pose dangers to your home, especially when they've chewed electrical wires.
Most consider rodents like mice, Scott pest control rats, and squirrels as house pests. They chew their way into people's homes to build nests. Once finding out that animal pests have attacked your home, it's best that the problem be solved immediately.
But why do rodents and other sharp-toothed animals invade your home?
Rodents, in particular, need to control the length of their teeth given their continuous growth. Having long teeth would make it for them harder to chew their real food in the future. Chewing also makes their teeth stronger and sharper. So, to help them meet their needs, rodents chew on wood, electrical wires, and just about any hard object.
As for other animals such as Scott wildlife removal raccoons, opossums, and even dogs, while they may not be teething as hard as rodents, there still are chances that they will damage your electrical wires. There may be times they go out of control and would just go and bite anything they see. Opossums, in particular, are nomadic and will do anything so they can have their meal to the point of messing your home, which includes damaging your wires.
Damaged electrical wires can cause electrocution leading to serious injury or worse, death. Live current may still be passing through the wires, so it's best to stay away from it. You should be doubly alert if the particular damage has caused a power outage in your home because you probably won't see the live wire in the dark.
Damaged wires can also spark flames. This is especially dangerous if ground zero is located near flammable materials such as oils, insulation, boxes, and wood beams.
Aside from electrical wires, Scott animal trapping animal pests can cause other forms of damage to your home. Of course, they will lay some unwanted waste, especially on your insulation (if you're in a cold country), as they would want to rest on it, too. This, in turn, can cause disease should you come into contact with them. Worse, this would serve as breeding ground for other diseases. And just like my example of getting electrocuted in the dark, you could be harmed unknowingly.
You can't afford to risk lives, especially your own and your loved ones', with damaged electrical wires in your home. So, it's important to call your trusted electrician immediately so he or she can fix the problem with utmost care.
But, of course, solving the problem doesn't end there.
It's also a must to call a Scott exterminator pest control service for rats and mice; or a wildlife control service for squirrels and other larger animals. Depending on your needs, they can render services from spraying chemicals to placing more sturdy material to prevent rodents and other animal pests from invading your home.
