What Causes Rodent Infestations?
Rodents want to enter Winnipeg residents because they’re commensal. As a result, they thrive by piggybacking on humans. For instance, they’ll eat your food and drink your water. They’ll also use your shelter. Rodents are small enough to slip through holes only a quarter of an inch in diameter. Properly sealing your outer walls can likely keep them out.
Rodents are indeed dangerous. Therefore, you cannot ignore the infestation. Doing so will lead to major issues. Rodents are going to leave urine and feces piles around your home. Unfortunately, they’ll contaminate some of your food products. If someone in your home eats the contaminated food, the risks are higher. They could get seriously sick. Rodents can spread a handful of illnesses, including Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, Lassa Fever, Rat-Bite Fever, Plague, and more.
