Pesky Pests

Nature is wonderful. The birds and bees, the flowers and trees, the chipmunks and squirrels that bring parks and gardens to life make sunny days even brighter. If only these splendid little creatures would remain in the parks and gardens; unfortunately, they do not.

Pests for a Reason

When animals move in without notice or permission, they are labelled pests. Faecal matter and urine from rats and mice can be infected with hantavirus, listeria, and other bacteria that can cause severe health issues merely from breathing in particles of the rodent’s waste. Rodents are also known for making a mess of pantries and for carrying fleas, which then doubles the pest problem. Squirrel, rat, and mice nests damage insulation and may also cause damage to electrical systems due to chewed wires. Wasp and bee infestations, aside from being nuisances, can cause damage to the wood and insulation of a home’s structure.
