Rodent Awareness Week: Rodents in Naples, Florida

Rodent Awareness Week: Raising awareness about rodents and threats they may pose.

Rodents in Naples, FL are a year-round pest control issue, though activity generally increases during the colder months of December-February. Not only can rodents cause property damage, they also carry parasites and diseases. Rats, mice, and squirrels can chew wiring which may lead to an electrical fire or loss of power to your home or business.

Please note, rodents eat almost anything—including cardboard, insulation, wood, and wallboards.

These creatures undoubtedly are destructive, but they can also pose a serious health risk to you and your family. Rodents carry allergens that can trigger allergies and asthma. Believe it or not, the number of individuals allergic to dust and mold is similar to the number of people with allergies that are mice related.

Ticks, fleas, mites, flies, and parasites may enter your home when rodents are present on your property. The presence of these pests may require additional services, which will increase the cost of treatment.

In the coming months when the temperature drops, rodents have an extra incentive to enter your home, seeking warmth and an abundance of food to create a warm habitat and consistent food source.

Education is the key to prevention for all pests. Our Naples, FL Pest Control pros want to share the tell-tale signs of rodent activity so you are able to identify the presence of rodents on your property.
