The Dangers of Rodent Infestation
Rodents are highly unsanitary, and having them in your home poses a variety of problems for you, your family, and even your household pets. Many rodent species are known carriers of infectious diseases like rabies, Plague, Lyme disease, rat-bite fever, and even Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis. Additionally, their contamination of food sources through their waste and contact increases food costs.
Apart from the health risks they pose, rodents have an aptitude from causing expensive property damage by chewing wooden structures, damaging electrical wiring, and soiling attic insulation.
