Mice and Rats
Prevent a Rodent Infestation
The best way to eliminate a rodent infestation is by preventing it altogether. Store food away from the floor where it is harder for rodents to find. Keep cardboard boxes off the floor so that mice cannot chew them apart to make bedding. Rodents can enter your home through spaces as small as a dime. Seal any holes on the exterior of your home to prevent rodents from climbing in.
If you do not actively prevent rodents from entering your home, you are putting your family at risk. Rats and mice are known to carry disease and parasites, and their feces and urine can be dangerous. Some children may think the rodents look cute and attempt to pick one up, which could cause the mouse or rat to bite and infect your child with their saliva's bacteria. Even without biting, rodent saliva is still present in their fur and could cause infection.
Keep Mice and Rats Out of Your Home
You cannot let even a single mouse or rat into your home, because they breed quickly and can produce as many as 80 pups a year. A single rodent can become a large infestation when those pups have pups. Rodent infestations can lead to structural damage and cause severe health hazards.
