Rodents are pests that can cause serious damage to your property; they are health hazard due to all the bacteria and viruses they get in touch with, they can also be carriers of dangerous diseases-and in the end, they are complete nuisance. You can't leave anything in the open because they can get to it and chew on it, making it dangerous for you, your family and pets.
Rodents easily find entrance to your home as well as to business buildings because they can climb up the walls and enter interior through the tinniest possible hole. Once they are inside, they start reproducing in no time-and because reproductive cycle of rodents is very fast, you can have very large rodent family in no time. A terrible thought, right? It is even worse when it becomes a reality!
