Chances are that you don’t spend much time thinking about rodents. For most of us, this is something that only crops up if and when we think we might have an infestation.
While it may seem logical to simply deal with the problem when it arises, there are actually some very good reasons why it’s important to prevent an outbreak from occurring in the first place.
Rodents Can Cause Damage You May Not Notice - By the time you notice you have rats or mice running around the place, they probably will have already caused a significant amount of damage. There are a number of ways rodents can cause damage which easily goes unnoticeable including:• Gnawing and burrowing into upholstered furniture (they may go through the back so you wouldn’t notice unless you moved the item)
The Common Entry Points For Rodents Include: - • Inside, underneath and behind kitchen cabinets, fridges and stoves
• Inside cupboards near the floor corners
• Around windows and doors. Young rats and mice can even squeeze through small gaps under doorways so fit strips to the bottom of doors as a deterrent
• The fireplace
• Pipes under sinks and washing machines
• Floor and dryer vents
• The attic
• The basement
• Around holes for electrical, plumbing, cable and gas lines
• Cat flaps
They’re A Fire Hazard - Rodents are very intelligent when it comes to finding crafty ways to navigate their way inside and then making your home theirs without you even noticing. Unfortunately however, they’re not smart enough to know that chewing through electrical wires is a huge fire hazard.Mice will even build their nests in large electrical appliances while chewing on or through insulation and wiring. This can cause the appliance to short circuit or malfunction, leading to the risk of fire.
They’re A Big Health Risk - One of the main reasons people dislike rodents so much is because of the number of diseases they carry. Sharing your home or office with rats and mice exposes you to a number of diseases that can spread in a number of ways including through the handling of these creatures regardless of whether they’re dead or alive, or simply by coming unknowingly into contact with rodent faeces, urine or salivaIf you don’t want rats and mice to enter your property, don’t make it easy for them. Seal any holes inside and outside the building, no matter how small they are – rodents can squeeze through much smaller holes than you might expect.
