Do You Have a Rodent Problem?
Learn the Key Characteristics of Rodents and How to Identify an Infestation
As autumn approaches, many homeowners find rodents seeking shelter indoors for the winter. These inventive invaders can squeeze through an opening the size of a dime to find food and shelter. Unfortunately, rodents such as rats and mice bring some baggage. According to the CDC, they are responsible for the spread of over 35 diseases worldwide. After invading the home, rodents can contaminate food sources, transport fleas and spread diseases such as plague, murine typhus and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. Don’t worry, Home Paramount has the extermination treatments to help you get rid of rodents.
What Does It Eat?
Rodents are well adapted to life with humans and will eat many of the items that we consume. In general, mice prefer cereals and grains, while rats prefer garbage, but both will eat whatever food is available.
Where Does It Hide?
Rodents are typically nocturnal and may hide inside wall voids, under furniture or appliances. Rats often nest outside in soil near foundations or dense shrubbery.
What Can It Do to Me?
House mice are a primary contributor to allergies and can trigger asthma in susceptible individuals. The constant gnawing of mice and rats can cause damage to structures and property and may even cause fires if electrical wires are damaged.
