Rodents: Mice and Rats in Boca Raton, Florida
Although you may not suspect it, rodents can actually pose a health risk to your family. According to the CDC, Boca Raton rodents can be carriers of many diseases, including but not limited to the following:
- Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
- Lassa Fever
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
- Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
Of course, not all mice and rats will be disease carriers. They can still cause quite a disturbance around your house or office, though. Rodents will chew almost anything they can get their teeth on if they think it will get them closer to food. Many people complain of finding chewed electrical cords and food supplies. In fact, nothing will stop a rat when it decides there is food on the other side. It will literally chew through your walls to get to food.
This being said, they don’t have to create a very large hole because they can squeeze through the smallest of holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar, which is generally the way mice and rats originally get into a home or business to begin with. That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place.
