According to the Center for Disease Control, rats are known to carry over ten serious diseases. Aside from the threat to your family through food contamination and the damage rats can cause to your home or business, here are a few things you should know;
Mice reproduce quickly and just like rats, they can cause significant damage to your home or business through gnawing and also contaminate food and surfaces through droppings left behind. Droppings have also been linked as being a trigger for asthma.
Keeping food sources, including crumbs and garbage away from rodents is the best method of prevention. This includes goods such as cereals and grains, as well as fruits and vegetables.
Rodents are also attracted to a warm, dry environment, especially during winter. Keeping entry points sealed can be difficult but may also assist in preventing infestations.
Rats and Mice are extremely adaptable and so can be found almost anywhere. As mentioned earlier, they multiply quickly so a few rodents can turn into an infestation in no time.
Rats and mice can bite and they carry a variety of bacteria, viruses and disease that can be transmitted to humans so we do not recommend handling them. If you find rodents, it’s always best to call a fully qualified, professional pest controller.
