and Rodent Extermination
Mice and Rats invade homes and businesses, in search of food and shelter. There is hardly anything that they will not consume. Pet food makes a great meal for these rodents! Mice gain entry to homes in businesses through pipes, cabinets, holes or openings in foundations and also through roofs. What seems to be a small space to us is a large space to them. Once inside homes or businesses, they will urinate and defecate on human and pet foods causing the spread of diseases.
Rats cause extensive damage to insulation inside walls and in attics, they cause structure damages by chewing and carrying many diseases. They also chew on electrical wires, which can cause fires. They are known to damage pool heaters, hot tubs and barbecue grills. Some rats will also attack both animals and humans. Small amounts of mouse urine trigger allergies, particularly in children. Mice spread diseases by contaminating food and water (and through bite wounds) with their waste products. Mice can also spread disease through parasites (such as ticks, fleas and mites). These parasites bite the infected mouse and then spread the disease by biting humans.
