Orlando, FL, June 30, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Pro-Staff Pest Control, a highly-ranked pest control company in Orlando, Florida, has noticed an increasing number of rodent infestations around the Central Florida region this summer. Pro-Staff’s expert technicians note an increased amount of rain and flooding in the area, potentially forcing them out of their natural nests and into homes for food and shelter.
Rodents leave behind telltale signs of an infestation, including scattered droppings and urine stains, chewed up food, and holes in walls and other home structures. However, rats and mice are often difficult for homeowners to detect and eliminate on their own, as they have learned to avoid typical traps and devices and also due to their ability to squeeze into extremely tight spaces.
Rats and mice are most likely to take up residence within your walls or roof, where they are free from human disturbance. In addition to destroying surfaces and consuming large quantities of food, rodents have the potential to spread diseases to your family through their saliva and waste products. Also, many captured rats have been found to carry fleas and ticks that can transmit parasites and attack your family member and household pets.
“We’ve had an increasing number of families call us and report spotting rodents, or signs of rodents, near their home,” said Robert Welch, owner of Pro-Staff. “With the increase in heavy rains, rodent infestations are quite possible this summer. Make sure you keep your homes clean and free from food debris, keep your food safely stored in tight containers, and patch up even small holes you find around your home.”
For ensured safety, contact Pro-Staff Pest Control at the first sign of a rodent infestation. Keep your home and family safe and healthy throughout the summer by ensuring that rodents do not enter your home. For more information, call (407) 292-PEST today.
