There are Reasons to Be Concerned about Rodent Control
Controlling rodents in commercial buildings, restaurants, elder homes, retirement villages and others can be a challange. For one you are talking very large area’s to try and control the rodent problem.
It is not only rodents, it can also be mice and other critters. Some other commercial pest control service article, click the link.
One of the main reasons for controlling the rodent population is the critical problem and danger of contracting hantavirus from the droppings of these little varments.
New Mexico in the past has suffered some deaths due to the hantavirus but we seem to have this problem under control especially in the commercial pest control arena. Keeping it this way, safe and death free is not as easy as it seems.
Hantavirus is actually a group of viruses that may be carried by some rodents, and some hantaviruses can cause a rare but deadly disease called hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. Via: Unwelcome company, Hantavirus one reason to be concerned about rodent control – Mountain Mail Newspaper
“We urge people not to store trash outside where rodents can get at it. When you move the trash, you get exposed to whatever they might be carrying.” Via: Unwelcome company, Hantavirus one reason to be concerned about rodent control – Mountain Mail Newspaper
Itis best to avoid all wild mice and rats and to safely clean up any rodent droppings, urine or nest around the premises. Prevention is always better of course than having to clean up.

Green Answer to Rodent Control
One easy way for green pest control in commercial properties is the use of cats, which work quite well.
There are many benefits that the little furry guy likes which is he can keep what he catches, he loves his work and shows up each day happy to do his job. Cats are the perfect answer to this problem.
And just in time because the Department of Wildlife reports more and more rodents in neighborhoods and warehouses looking for water in this drought. Local pest control companies also report more mice and rat calls this summer over last. And as we drive coyotes out of urban areas, the only real control on rodents is poison….and cats.

For years now the Nevada Humane Society has been offering feral cats for the purpose of patrolling barns and warehouses. And they say it’s become such a popular program that they are actually down to about a dozen feral cats right now. Via: A Green Answer to Rodent Control – KTVN
One thing that is nice about this program is that they find a place for the cats to stay and a great home. It is great because it is a great non-toxic solution to a big problem.
These commercial buildings use several cats at a time and they seem to work great together as a team. If you need a commercial pest control company, just click the link.
Erik the Red Retiring from Rodent Control Officer from the CSS Acadia
He started off as a stray kitten and then became a stowaway on the CSS Acadia
The 102-year-old ship is permanently moored outside the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax. While it doesn’t leave the shore, it has the same problem with rodent visitors as many ships. Via: Erik the Red to retire from rodent control officer duties on CSS Acadia – CBC.ca
They were having a surge in the number of field mice and rats that would jump onboard the ship, so it was great timing.
There was a feline at the time onboard but was not performing her duties as good as Erik would. Erik took his job serious and in no time had the ships rodent problem under control, plus he is cute too.
