Rat and Mice Control
Rats and mice are one of the most difficult pests to eliminate because they are so well adapted to life around human beings. These rodents often breed in agricultural areas where livestock is kept, but they also live in cities as well. Rats and mice are among the dirtiest of pests and can contaminate food, spread diseases and destroy property by gnawing through dry wall, wood and electrical wiring. In fact it has been estimated that rodents cause hundreds of millions of dollars in fire damage each year by chewed electrical wiring! And rats only require an opening as small as a quarter to enter inside.
Business and home owners living in South East Michigan should learn the early signs of rodent infestations so that Knock ‘Em Out Pest Control can be contacted before rodent populations grow and they become a nuisance.
