A Next Door Construction Project Can Send Pests Your Way
Countless scenarios can put mice, rats, roaches, and other pests searching for a new home. The one being focused on here today is a next door neighbor’s, new construction, or remodeling project. A person living inside the city limits has easy access to almost anything they need. They usually don’t have far to travel for work, and retail stores seem to be everywhere. These conveniences are great, but the one downside is that homes tend to sit very close together.
The demolition of structures is not uncommon when a piece of land is purchased adjacent to your property. Sometimes this action only takes place with outdoor sheds and decks, but on other occasions, the entire home is taken down. If a mouse infestation is present, the nuisances will begin scurrying through the grass in search of a new place to live. All they need is a tiny hole in the siding, a minuscule crevice in the wooden foundation, or a slit in a screen covering, and the Houdinis are now inside your residence. Remodeling can cause the same types of effects. As the pest’s habitat becomes disturbed, they have no choice but to look for a better environment.
Mice are expert hiders, and they often live amongst people, without anyone being the wiser, until signs begin to appear. Homeowners may notice clawing noises inside the wall or the pitter-patter of little feet running through the attic. At times, the pests are brazen enough to come out into the open, but they usually stay away from humans. Once the creatures get into the pantry, they cause your food stocks to dwindle by nibbling from one package to the next. Avoid consuming the meals as mice, and rats, carry various diseases that include, but are not limited to…
• Hemorrhagic Fever With Renal Syndrome
• Rat-Bite Fever
These pests travel through sewer systems, walk in their own feces, and pick up different kinds of contaminants on their feet. Then, they step onto countertops, other surfaces, and anywhere else in between, increasing a person’s risk of becoming ill. Countless baits, traps, and poisons are available to rectify the situation on your own. However, if this burden becomes too much to bear, don’t hesitate to contact our office to eliminate the pests quickly. Allow us the opportunity to show you why so many residents of Glen Burnie, and surrounding areas, have entrusted us with their extermination needs since 1971.
