Rodent Control Services
Boston and its surrounding suburbs have some of the most densely populated neighborhoods in the country. Those conditions – paired with having some of the country’s oldest buildings – have created a welcoming environment for mice and rats.
Rodents pose health, safety, and economic threats
Rodents can be found in every city, town, and countryside throughout New England and their presence brings with it a variety of health and economic threats to the humans sharing the environment with them.
- Rodents eat large amounts of food. Their urine, feces, and hair contaminate even more. It’s estimated that at least 20% of the world’s food is adversely affected by rodents.
- Rodents damage buildings, belongings, furniture, and appliances with their gnawing and burrowing.
- Rodent gnawing on electric cables frequently starts fire within buildings.
- Rodents spread disease by carrying fleas, lice, mites, and ticks and by contaminating food. In addition, mice have been linked to asthma.
