Rodent-induced fires from damaged electrical wiring or nest building in electrical panels cause loss of property and threaten human safety.
Rodents are known to carry a variety of diseases, such as salmonellosis, leptospirosis, and murine typhus, that are transmittable to humans. Additionally, they may be sources of swine dysentery, brucellosis, sarcoptic mange, and tuberculosis, all of which affect livestock or pets.
During the fall one of the most effective means of limiting rodent damage is a rodent-exclusion program. This prevents mice, rats and rodents from getting into your home.
For example, did you know that mice can:
- enter openings larger than 1/4 inch (0.6 cm);
- jump as high as 18 inches (46 cm) from a floor onto an elevated surface;
- travel considerable distances crawling upside-down along screen wire;
Mechanical exclusion is the front line defense for preventing rodents, flying and crawling insects from entering your home.
