DID YOU KNOW…
Rodents are the biggest pest invaders. They will shed over 5000,000 body hairs each year! They are good swimmers, jumpers, and climbers. They can squeeze through a hole ½ inch in diameter. Once they have gained access, they will damage anything they can get in contact with, from electrical wires to gnawing at every location. At least 20% of the world’s food is contaminated by rats and mice each year. Rodents are known to cause health issues, for many locations, one sighting of rodent will cause health department shutdowns automatically.
Under ideal conditions, a pair of rats could produce 15,000 offspring in one year! They can eat a third of their body weight each day. They are true omnivores, they will eat almost anything even other rats. They eat so much one rat can leave behind 25,000 droppings per year.
At IPM, our Rodent Program includes inspecting areas where rodents are harboring, trapping, and eliminating. Rodents are known for entering through window/ceiling/wall gaps, doors, and many times through drainage pipes. Leave these little guys to the professionals as fleas on rodents will want to make you their new host, remember fleas on rodents spared the plague!
