In our experience, most people are grossed out by rodents in their homes or businesses, but not everyone understands the true importance of rodent control. To give you a better idea of why rodent control is important, we have put together this article with more information on the subject.
- Rodents Spread Disease- One reason why it’s necessary to keep rodents out of your building is because they are known to carry and spread serious diseases. If you want to keep yourself and everyone who uses your building safe, you should schedule rodent control services at the first sign of rodent activity—and schedule follow-up treatments to keep these pests out going forward.
- Rodents Ruin Food- Another reason why rodent control is important is because keeping rodents out helps keep your food safe. Rodents can consume 10-12% of their body weight in food every day, which means they can quickly deplete your food supply, and any food they touch will be contaminated.
- Rodents Damage Property- In addition to ruining your food, rodents can also do serious damage to your property. Mice and rats constantly gnaw anything they can get because their teeth are constantly growing and they need to file them down to keep them manageably short. Unfortunately, this evolutionary behavior can lead them to chew up your walls, furniture, and worst of all, electrical wires. If you want to keep your property safe from this kind of damage, including the electrical fires that this gnawing can cause, you should invest in effective rodent control services.
