We’re seemingly living in an era of a peculiar rodent expansion. Considering street rats are capable of spreading disease, residents of every city in the world should be cautious and take action. We want to take preventive measures to deter pests in our communities. One step towards that goal is to take pest control seriously. A rule of thumb is when you see one rat rummaging through your neighborhood trash, expect a colony is nearby. A single rodent plays a role in the reproduction process, considering a pair can breed several dozen offspring within twelve months. If you do the math, a couple of rats or mice can multiply into a thousand offspring within a year. For this reason, we recommend discussing neighborhood rodent prevention with your Home Owner’s Association and getting a rodent pest control program in place.
