Health and Economic Threat
Rodents pose a significant threat to human health. They have been responsible for the spread of many diseases throughout history which have resulted in countless deaths. Hantavirus, allergens, food-borne illnesses, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, typhoid, dysentery, and flea and tick associated diseases are all associated with rodents.
Because of modern day advancements in sanitation, better rodent control practices, and modern day medicine, these problems have largely been mitigated. But there is always a risk of new outbreaks. And besides, who knows where these little guys have been! Like insects, rats and mice can spread disease and filth throughout your home, which makes rodent pest control in Oklahoma especially important.
Rodents can also pose a serious threat to your property. In both residential and commercial settings, they can damage the structure of buildings by gnawing and burrowing through ceilings, walls, and floors. They can chew through pipes and electrical wiring, and can damage computer and internet systems.
Mice and rat feces, urine, and carcasses can rot building material and cause terrible odor problems. In commercial settings in particular, they can spoil food in warehouses, during transport, and at the point of sale. Unless they are quickly dealt with, these pests will never stop- they work day and night scavenging for food, nesting materials without any regard to your personal property.
Rodents that are dangerous and problematic to humans are known as “commensal” rodents. Commensal means “to share a table”, and rats and mice have wanted to share things with mankind for thousands of years. There are three commensal rodent species that are common enemies to in almost all parts of the globe. These include house mice, Norway rats, and roof rats.
These rodents are especially dependent on humans. Oklahoma has other species that can be occasional invaders. These include field mice and pack rats, which tend to be more “wild”, but they can be opportunistic and exploit resources such as human food and shelter. It is not uncommon to find a field mouse wandering into your property here in Oklahoma, especially if you live on the outskirts of town in a developing subdivision or in “the country”.
