That scratching you hear in your walls or around your baseboards is a very bad indication you have a rodent problem. One rodent is just as dangerous as 20 rodents; however, it is much easier to treat the rodent problem before it becomes an infestation. Did you know that a female rat produces 5 litters a year and that it only takes 21 days from insemination to birth! You may not have an infestation but it can become one within a month.
Rodents are very hard on the interior structure of a dwelling, often bedding in the walls, basement, and attic areas. They use the spaces between walls as avenues for travel, which makes it hard to catch them. Besides the obvious problems of infestation and damage to the house or apartment, the main area of concern is the diseases associated with rodents.
A short list of symptoms of rat-bite fever is enough to send a shudder down your spine: “ulceration of the bite site and red streaks”, “reddish-purple rash” and “swelling of the lymph nodes” alert you that this rodent problem needs immediate attention. So call Cliff’s Pest Control Inc. at the earliest sign of any pests and we’ll fix you right up!
