Rats and Mice
Rodents get a lot of bad press, and for a ton of good reasons. Mice and rats carry parasites, bacteria, and viruses that can cause a slew of health concerns for you and your entire family. They can also spread diseases like toxoplasmosis, trichinosis, and typhus, not to mention the bubonic plague—a terrible illness that can seriously harm and even kill people.
If that wasn’t bad enough, rodents can cause major structural damage to your North Vancouver property. They have inordinately strong jaw muscles and razor-sharp teeth, capable of chewing through wood, brick, concrete, and metal. Rodents have also been known to cause fires by gnawing on electrical cables.
No matter how sealed up you think your home or business is, if rodents want in, they’ll find a way. They can get through almost any opening, squeezing their bodies through holes no bigger than the size of a dime. Once rodents manage to creep into your home, good luck trying to get rid of them. A single rat can literally have thousands of babies during their lifespan, with young rodents breeding as early as 3 months of age.
If your home has been infiltrated by these furry masters of mayhem, you’ll need to contact a professional pest control company, fast!
