When you think about home or business pests, the first thing you picture is probably a rodent. It’s not hard to realize why: rodents are the quintessential pest. They’re extraordinarily good at sneaking into structures through small cracks and crevices. Once inside, they can inflict all kinds of gross and even dangerous food and structural damage. They’re even capable of transmitting diseases or carrying other pests like fleas into your building! Mice or rats in your building are a threat to your sanitation, health, safety, and products. They’re also just plain upsetting.
