Cooler Weather and Rodent Season

By May 17, 2019 No Comments

Here’s the thing about rodents, they are a potential threat throughout the year. While some pests hideaway for the winter, rodents remain active. It’s important to protect your home throughout the whole year, especially during the winter months. Winter is a common time for wildlife to seek out your home for warmth and shelter. With close proximity to food (your garbage and cupboards), they have it made. At the first signs, you notice, the action is needed!

If you haven’t actually observed which pest is running around your home, there are signs to look for that give them away:

  • Droppings or gnaw marks in your pantry or in other areas around your home. Mice droppings will be smaller than the droppings of rats.
  • Their chewing could affect multiple places in your house; furniture, drywall, food packages, and much more.
  • You may hear their movements coming from behind your walls or from the attic.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to seek professional help right away.


Why DIY Methods Don’t Work
It’s hard to guarantee that rodents will stay out by only using DIY pest control alone. Just when you think they’re gone, they come back. They are persistent, and they’re chewing never stops. Rodents are pests that need to be taken very seriously. They pose a threat to you, your family, and your property. Not only can their incessant gnawing cause costly repairs, water damage, and fire hazards, but they bring pathogens into your home and can spread illnesses. Their chewing and defecating can contaminate food supplies, and their smell can be strong.
