As the temperatures begin to drop, most species on our planet make preparations of one kind or another for the winter months ahead. People pull out their winter wardrobe and outdoor wear. Bears get ready for hibernation. Fish head to the bottom depths to escape the ice. And rodents start looking for a warm place to hunker down. Guess what? That last one should concern you because your home is prime real estate for rodents looking to do that! If you aren’t already set up with rodent control services, fall is a time when it is critical you do so.
It might seem that one or two mice or rats is not a cause for concern, but when you consider the damage that they can do to your home and furniture, the pathogens they carry, and how quickly they reproduce, you shouldn’t put up with any in your home at all. Right now is when rodents are breeding, so before long, each of those females will bring a dozen babies into the world. Each one will reach maturity before long and they’ll then have their own litter. Before you know it, you are kept awake by squeaking and scurrying, and the electrical wiring in your home starts going haywire.
If you want to protect your home and furniture, and keep your family safe from pathogens, such as rat-bite fever, trichinella pseudo spiralis, Q-fever, viral hemorrhagic fever, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, Weil’s disease, and cryptosporidiosis, reach out for rodent control services if you even suspect you have rodents in your home.
