12 Sep Rain = Rodents
With the seemingly never-ending rains, not to mention the Hurricane Florence residual also headed in this direction, you can expect a surge in rodent activity on your property. Any change in outside conditions will bring them racing to get inside. Mice and rats can squeeze through the tiniest of holes, so eliminating potential entry points is imperative.
Mice contaminate food-preparation surfaces with their feces and urine, which can contain the bacteria that causes food poisoning. Their gnawing causes damage to structures and property. Be aware of the tell-tale signs of a rodent infestation such as droppings, gnaw or rub marks on the floorboards, signs of nesting materials or holes and even urine smells.
