Rodent Control Important during Winter Months

Macy’s, the “Good News” Pest Control Company, reminds Natural Awakenings readers that winter is a prime time for rodent infestation in homes across Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte Counties. Even the most expensive homes often lure the furry creatures with lush tropical landscaping and tempting citrus trees. Macy’s has been recognized by industry experts as one of the top 10 companies in Florida in eradication of these unwelcome guests.
 
Hantavirus and encephilitis are just a couple of the many diseases rodents carry and spread through their feces, urine, and direct bites. Just by coming into your home, they can bring fleas, ticks, and lice, which can transfer to your pets, furniture, your children and you.
 
Rodents can enter your home by squeezing through tiny spaces. For example, a rat can fit through an opening the size of a quarter. A mouse can fit through a hole smaller than the size of a dime! Once they get in, they can destroy functional components of your home such as electrical wires, which could cause a fire hazard. They colonize in your attic and burrow under concrete porches, in the walls and other hard to reach places.
 
Macy’s uses only 100% environmentally safe pesticides that will not harm people or pets, but will get rid of the rodents, along with termites, ants and all types of bugs.
