More than 21 million American homes experience a rodent infestation every winter. Apart from the general annoyance of having rodent loose in your home, these infestations can spread disease and cause serious property damage.
Mice and other rodent infestations are more prevalent during the winter months as they search for food and shelter. Unfortunately, they quickly reproduce, and homeowners should address the problem immediately once signs (or sounds) of mice are found.
Health and property concerns related to rodents include:
- Bubonic Plague
- Rat-Bite Fever
- Insulation, wallboard, cardboard, wood and electrical wiring damage increases fire risk
