In the midst of the warmer months of the year there is not much concern of pests that typically invade during the winter. After all, there is a lot of time to be spent on the lake, gardening and other fun-filled summer activities to pursue. But did you know that even when the weather is warm outside, rodents may still be trying to get into your home?
Although typically more of an issue in the winter when they need a warm place to reside, mice and rats are still in search of food during the summer which means they can still invade your home. When it comes to rodent infestations there are many concerns that should be considered even when the sun is shining and the warm weather abounds.
- Gnawing on furniture, structures of the home, personal belonging, food packaging
- Leave urine and droppings which leads to contamination
- Can transmit diseases through droppings and biting
- Cause fire hazards from chewing on electrical wiring
- Can introduce other pests into the home such as fleas and mites
