Rodent Extermination in Chattanooga
Don’t Let Your Home Become a Rodent Time-Share
Your furry little friends from the forest enjoy your home. Unlike the woods and wilderness, your house doesn’t get too cold in the winter or too humid during the summer, which makes it an ideal place to burrow and nest.
Unfortunately, pests don’t have much in the way of house manners, and though their claw marks might be distressing, it’s the diseases they carry in their feces and saliva that you really need to watch out for.
Just How Many Of Them Are There?
If you have a rodent problem, then there are probably more rodents in your home than you want to know about.
A female mouse can have up to eight litters per year with about four to seven pups per litter, making for 32 to 56 pups in a single year. But a female rat can do even better, with between four to seven litters per year, and 8-12 pups per litter, yielding between 32 and 84 pups each year.
And remember that all of these rodent pups reach sexual maturity within a matter of two to three months. We’re talking an exponential amount of rodent reproduction; if you’re not alert to it and they’re left unchecked, they can easily overwhelm your property.
That’s Not Just Dirt Under Their Fingernails
It’s not the destructive nature of rodents that you need to worry about the most. Yes, they’ll do quite a bit of damage to your property with all of their scurrying and digging and clawing, but the real danger is in their residual leavings in the form of saliva, feces, and urine.
There’s a reason that rodents are so often associated with plagues. Between the diseases coursing through their blood and the fleas and ticks that tend to accompany them, it’s really easy for them to transmit bacteria and viruses to whomever they live with.
These aren’t tame little illnesses, either. Rodents are a leading carrier of hantavirus, hemorrhagic fever, rat-bite fever, salmonellosis and yes, the plague. It’s still a thing.
