Raccoons are a Serious Health Threat
When the weather is hot pests look for a place to cool off. During dry weather pests need water to survive. Dry conditions will send pests scurrying into your home or business looking for water. Cold weather makes the pest to visit homes for warmth and shelter. Mosquitoes, stick bugs, termites, cockroaches, etc. love wet weather as they thrive in wet conditions.
Rodents love to sneak into the smallest spaces and create damage through the entire building. They chew into walls, gnawing on electrical wires and leaving their droppings behind. Rodents cause damages if left to freely roam inside the property. Rodents are difficult to see as they hide in dark surroundings and only come out at night. Little black pellet-like droppings are the first indication of rodents inside you premises. However, finding chewed-up wires or gnawed on wood is another indicator. Some noises like light squeaking or a rustling side within the walls; floor or ceiling can be heard. If they are out in the daytime, chances are you will see them.
The breeding season makes your home or business a very desirable place for wildlife to safely raise their young. A loose bit of soffit, or minor wood damage on fascia, becomes an invitation for pests. a minor damaged edge makes a squirrel to take that opportunity and chew a hole sufficient to enter. A raccoon finds this inviting to enter. Raccoons can wreak havoc on anything stored in the attic, picking a specific area to use as a bathroom, like a litter box is a habit of Racoons. This causes stains, bad odor and can even cause ceiling collapse! Another big menace is bats and birds. Any uncapped chimney, chimney swifts are a perfect place for them.
The danger that any type of pest infestation poses to your family’s health is so broad, it pays to eliminate the issue long before it gets out of control. Insects of all kinds bite, in one way or another. Spider bites are infrequent but possible, whereas a bed bug bite can trigger a severe allergic reaction in someone who previously never knew of the allergy. Rodent infestations are serious. Mice urinate and defecate several times a day, and they do it wherever they make a home. Because mice and rats root through trash, they carry with them E coli, salmonella, and other bacteria, potentially spreading it on your food if they reside in your cabinets.
