One of the most dangerous things that an individual can assume in regards to rodent pest control is that a rodent infestation won’t affect their home. According to Oregon rodent control experts, rodents infest about 21 million homes each year in the U.S. The issue is most prominent during the fall and winter months because the cold weather prompts these pests to seek warmer nesting sites—and your home looks pretty comfy.
In addition to making noise in your walls and nibbling on your pantry items, rodents pose serious health risks. Their fur, dander, urine, saliva and feces can trigger allergic reactions and spread diseases such as salmonella, Leptospirosis, the plague, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM) and Hantavirus. Their presence makes any area immediately unsanitary. And, if you don’t tend to the problem quickly with the help of an Oregon or Washington rodent control specialist, a couple of critters will soon multiply into a costly infestation.
Prevention is always simpler and more cost effective than dealing with an infestation. To help keep your home rodent-free this fall and winter:
