The climate on the Central Coast provides many favorable conditions for rodents to flourish. Rats and mice are especially problematic in landscaped developments where their natural harborage has been plowed under and replaced by homes, businesses, and golf courses. With limited food sources and places to hide or breed, rats will seek out any dry and protective space including your home, attic, trees, or bushes around the home.
Health Risks of Rodent Infestations
Rats are one of the most successful mammal groups on earth. They’re present on every continent except Antarctica. They harbor many diseases that humans can contract directly from ticks, mites, or fleas that live on an infected rodent. Rats are also known to snack on food and water that people leave out, and they can contaminate your home with their urine and droppings.
Besides being disease-carriers, rats can be very destructive by chewing wires, pipes, screens, roofing, and other household materials. This is necessary because their teeth grow continuously and they need to constantly gnaw on various surfaces to wear them down. Most rats can fit through a hole the size of a quarter.
Rodents are primarily nocturnal creatures with poor vision, and are thought to be colorblind. However, they do have keen senses of smell and hearing, which allows them to easily locate and navigate through residential areas that might provide sources of food. Lindar rodent control services can help homeowners and landlords avoid this problem.
