The three most common species of rodents in the Greater Vancouver area are the Norway rat, the roof rat and the house mouse. All of these rodents thrive in cities, happily living in close proximity to humans. They will often enter homes and businesses in search of food and shelter. In Vancouver’s temperate climate, these animals are active all year round.
Rodents will live anywhere they can find food and adequate nesting sites, and homes and businesses in Vancouver certainly fit those requirements. Although sanitation is key in helping to prevent rodent problems from occurring and eliminating them when they do occur, it can happen to anyone. And once a rodent population has become established in a structure, it can be very difficult to dislodge them. If your home or business in Greater Vancouver is experiencing a problem with mice or rats, or you just want to make sure it doesn’t happen to you, give CleanStart Pest Control a call. Our experienced technicians can advise you on how to keep your property rodent free.
