Rodents and Health Risks

  • May 25, 2015
 

What is so scary about rodents? There are many reasons to not want rodents in your home but one of the main reasons is because rodents carry dangerous diseases that can be harmful to people and pets. This means that all the surfaces and food that they may come into contact with, can potentially be spreading these harmful diseases. Rodents can move in and be hard to identify until a full blown rodent infestation has developed that can obviously be much harder to deal with. Another scary thing is that the longer rodents are living in your home, the more comfortable they get with people. They have even been known to come out of hiding and bite people living in the home!

Rodent Control Options

There are 3 main options to deal with a rodent problem. The first option is to place poison around your home that the rodent is attracted to and will eat and later die from. This is an option if you are ok with finding and disposing of dead rodents. The second option is traps which is a good choice if you want to make sure you know where the rodent will be found, but it can be a little more labor intensive. You will have to get traps and set them in order to catch a rodent and you can only catch as many as you have traps. And again – you face the same unpleasantness associated with disposing of dead rats and mice. The last and unarguably the best option is to call a professional pest control company like us that can come and assess your specific needs.
