RODENT DAMAGE AND DISEASE
The presence of rodents can spread disease as well as cause serious property damage to your home. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some of the most common diseases carried by mice and rats include hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, salmonellosis, and rat bite fever. Their droppings can cause respiratory distress, particularly for those with allergies and asthma.
Rodents also gnaw on wood and build nests in the walls and insulation, which can cause serious structural damage. Mice and rats may nest inside major appliances and chew on electrical wires, increasing the risk of fire. Even the coldest winters in New York can’t deter them; rodents have strong survival tactics and can withstand harsh winter conditions. They may be small, but rodents can become a huge problem once they’ve infested your home or business.

Because mice and rats reproduce rapidly, a small infestation can quickly get out of control. We treat both the exterior and interior of your property using the latest, most innovative rodent control methods, removing both live animals and nests and blocking openings through which the pests can reenter the home.
