ABC Home and Commercial Services offers solutions to your pest control problems including rodents, squirrels, and raccoons.
Each season brings a different area of focus when it comes to rodent control. As the weather cools down, your pest care needs change. Proper rodent control management is the only way to prevent long-term issues in your residence. Avoidance could lead to infestation or over growth.
Keep mice out of your home:
Specifically this season, pests start to look for a place to nest and typically move indoors. Rodents, in particular, tend to be more problematic this time of the year. They start to become apparent in homes and commercial buildings. Rodents will enter through openings as small as a quarter. Rats are peridomestic animals, meaning they share close spaces with humans.
A rodent is defined as any of the order (Rodentia) of relatively small gnawing mammals (as a mouse, rat, squirrel, or beaver) that have in both jaws a single pair of incisors with a chisel-shaped edge.
These pests can be potentially hazardous when in homes and commercial businesses due to the potential for food contamination and the spread of communicable diseases. These threats can cause serious health concerns, possibly even death. Eg: Bubonic Plague — 25 million people in Europe died from fleas transferring disease to rats.
Rodents also damage property at the roof level and at the ground level by gnawing. Roof rats are skillful at climbing and, rightfully named, will enter through openings on or at the roof eaves. Rodent exclusions performed by your pest management company will keep them from repeatedly becoming a roommate.
It is important to seek the expertise of a trained professional to ensure certain methods are implemented before the situation gets out of control.
