Is My Albany Home At Risk for Rodents this Spring?◀ Back To Blog
May 29, 2019
It is a natural thing to want the best in life. For instance, if someone offered you your dream car, for free, you'd accept it, right? If better opportunities come your way, more often than not, you will jump at the chance of something better. Rodents are the same way. Although they can survive outside of our homes, there is no denying that the amenities they can find inside our walls beat out anything they could find in the wild. For this reason, when rodents invade, they often end up staying as long as they can. To prevent this from happening, we have some interesting facts about rodents you will want to read.
Factors That Could Lead To An Infestation
Almost all creatures require the same three necessities to survive, food, water, and shelter. Rodents are no different. When rodents, such as mice, squirrels, and rats invade homes, they are doing so to meet these three needs. If your food is not stored in a safe location where rodents cannot get into it, your home has a factor that attracts rodents. If your pipes leak or water has been allowed to build up in or around your property, your home has two factors that attract rodents. Finally, if your home has tight spaces in its walls, floorboards, or in other areas around its structure that rodents can chew into and shelter within, your home has the trifecta of rodent attractants.
Why Winter Rodent Infestations Don’t End In Spring
Rodents are most likely to invade homes when the weather gets cold. A common misconception is that overwintering rodents will leave our homes once the weather heats back up. However, as we previously discussed, our home is most often everything a rodent could ever want and more, so why would they leave? The good news is they don’t have a say in the matter, that is if you have Thomas Pest Services on your side.
