Rodent season is coming, and your business could be at risk if you don't take precautions.
Rodents are most likely to enter your property before the cold weather sets in. The warmer weather encourages breeding and survival, so rodent populations increase dramatically during this time. These mammals seek alternative indoor shelter when the season changes because their natural habitat becomes less welcoming. It's up to you to make sure they don't settle in your space.
3 Things Businesses Need to Consider When
Preparing for Rodent Season
More than a simple nuisance, rodents can pose a severe health hazard for humans and animals. Rodents can transmit harmful diseases to humans through feces, urine and air. Therefore, if you notice any signs of rodents in your business, you must take action immediately.
Keep these factors in mind when preparing your business against rodent infestations.
1. Rodents thrive around vegetation.
You can reduce your risk of rodent infestation by ensuring the vegetation around your property is trimmed. Greenery and overgrown vegetation attract rodents. If tall grass and weeds surround your business, consider trimming them back. You should also remove any brush piles mice or rats can use to hide or build nests.
2. Buildings require regular inspection.
In addition to removing vegetation, you should inspect your building for signs of rodent activity and potential points of entry. Be sure to seal any possible entry points, including cracks in walls or gaps around doors and windows, before peak rodent season. This inspection is also a good time to correct any insulation or ventilation system issues. Rodents tend to nest in these areas.
3. You may have to increase your rodent protection.
The best way to prevent a rodent infestation is by taking preventive steps before pests settle in. You can increase rodent protection at your business using various methods, from installing traps and poison baits to hiring professional pest control services. Electronic traps, snap traps, and other devices are designed to monitor for rodent activity inside of your building.
