Rodent Control from Rest Easy: Rodents can be classified as a lot of things, be it guinea pigs or hamsters, but unlike these ones that we keep as pets, some rodents can pose serious threats to our families and houses. House rats and roof rats, in particular, are what we should be careful of the most, and are the ones that require professional attention. About one-third of the population in the United States suffers from rodent infestation and most of that occurs during the winter when these rodents seek shelter in our homes from the cold.
Places one should be watching out for the most are damp dark spaces around the house and places where we do not often visit. For example the attic, the garage, the laundry room and basements. These places provide the perfect breeding ground for rodents and hence should be one of the first places to clean and check for infestation. The odd place out is the kitchen, where we do visit often, yet the kitchen has a lot of nook and corners which let these creatures hideaway, and lots of good and wasted food, which rodents snack on.
Rodents are also known to nibble at anything that comes their way, be it food, wood or clothes, but that should be the least of worries given that they can also cut through electric wires which highly increase the chances of electric fires. They also usually crawl into the house through the gutters and sewers, which means they are nothing short of a germ body waiting to infect while they carry parasites such as fleas and ticks with them.
