Rodent Awareness Week

Did You Know?

Every year, a week in October is Rodent Awareness Week! It was established by the Professional Pest Management Alliance (PPMA) to promote public awareness of rodents and the dangers they present to home. The PPMA, which serves as the public outreach arm of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), also uses this week to encourage homeowners and business owners to work with a qualified pest control professional to address any and all rodent issues.

OPC Pest Services offers the peace of mind you need to be sure that your home, family, health and business are safe from the effects of these pesky pests.

As we adapt to the seasonal changes, so do the pests. Cooler temperatures make sleeping outside less appealing than the warmth that your home or business gives off as fall breezes settle in.  And with that, rodents present a tough challenge. Their teeth grow at a rapid pace which makes it necessary for them to chew constantly keeping them filed.  Their bodies can fit through even tiny holes; for mice, a dime-sized hole is all the access they need to enter your home or business! Once there, they can breed incredibly fast, quickly creating a major nuisance and a potential health hazard. Rodents cause up to $1 Billion in damages to homes and businesses in the US each year.

OPC Pest Services is Here to Help Solve Your Rodent Problems!

Whatever you do, don’t try to take on a rodent problem alone. Rodents carry a variety of diseases that can cause serious health problems if you’re bitten. It’s imperative that you contact an experienced pest control professional that can get your rodent problem under control and eliminate it — And that’s exactly what OPC Pest Services offers!

We develop a comprehensive plan that can include a variety of techniques and technology including traps, glue boards, and other methods to eliminate rodent infestations. Exclusion is one of the most important steps in a rodent prevention program.  We completely evaluate each property and seal any cracks or openings in walls, foundations, crawlspaces, basements, and attics. And then we can develop and schedule a maintenance plan with follow-up visits to make sure these pests are gone for good.

If you’ve seen a rodent running around your home, business, yard, or outbuilding, then you most likely have a problem that should be looked into! Don’t hesitate to contact OPC Pest Services today to discuss our Pest Management Services for rodent problems and keep your home or business rodent-free this winter season!
