Some pests are seasonal. Mosquitoes and wasps love the summer season while rats and mice love winter. In some places, these little critters are present all year round. Because of this, pest control is essential in any household or commercial establishment. Always remember that preventing pest problems is a lot easier compared to solving a problem with a full blown pest infestation.
During the Christmas season, properties start to have rat or mouse problems. These pests look for food and shelter, which your property gladly provides. If you do not address this problem early on, you will end up with a garage or house that’s filled with pesky critters and you will find it hard to get rid of them.
Rats and mice will munch on your electric wires, woodwork, packaging, food, clothes and many more. Apart from that they give off at least 70 droppings every day and urinates frequently, which can contaminate your food and lead to food poisoning. Rats can also spread various kinds of diseases from their dirty surroundings. Furthermore, both black and brown rats breed rapidly and they become capable of reproducing in just around three months. Each reproducing female can make between three to twelve litters of up to eight young in a year. Meanwhile, brown rats go underground or in any soft material to make their nest. While your home can still be their target in terms of their food source, it is more likely that they will make a home near your house like a shed or garage.
The best thing that you can do is to stop them from getting inside your home. Contact a professional pest control company like AAA Pest Control. Their contractors can help rat and mouse proof your home or commercial building using safe and effective methods.
