Rodents owe a majority of their survival success to their ability to adapt to different habitats. They are opportunistic food scavengers and will consume most types of food. If a certain food source runs out, they are likely to adapt to a new food source. In addition, they are mostly active just after sunset and just before sunrise – hours during which most people are asleep. These factors make rats and mice difficult to control.
Mice can cause all sorts of problems once they have gained access into the warmth and comfort of your home. They can commonly cause damage to walls, wiring, and furniture, and they can carry some serious diseases, such as Leptospirosis and Hantavirus.
Attempting to control a rat or mouse infestation can be dangerous. The most effective rodent control requires an integrated approach. Rodenticide alone is often not enough. Additionally, rodent control requires rodent proofing, harborage reduction, trapping and increased attention to sanitation. For the most comprehensive solution, call a Best Pest Control professional.
