Healthy Environment


Rodents such as mice and rats are pests that can be found in both rural and urban communities. Mice and rats can spread a variety of diseases to humans directly (through handling, contact with feces, urine, saliva/bites) or indirectly (through ticks, mites or fleas feeding on an infected rodent). Rodents can also damage property.

Prevention is the key in controlling rodent problems in and around your home. Rodent-proofing inside and outside your home will make it less appealing to mice and rats and will reduce the chance of the pests entering your home.

Home or property owners who think they are dealing with an infestation should contact a pest control professional. Tenants who believe they have a rodent infestation should contact their landlord.
