Problems Norway Rats Cause In Valparaiso, IN

The mere sight of a Norway rat can be an upsetting experience, but have you ever considered the potential problems they can cause? Norway rats burrow underground and inside structural voids, usually hiding during the day and emerging at night. Once they start crawling around, they contaminate food and surfaces. They leave feces, saliva, and urine all over the place and spread parasites that can lead to many different diseases. Here are a few of the ailments Norway rats can cause:

  • Bubonic plague

  • Typhus

  • Trichinosis

  • Salmonellosis

  • Jaundice

  • Rat-bite fever

  • Cowpox virus

Norway rats also carry around mites, ticks, and fleas, so they are dragging a whole new pest community into your home and exposing you to their potential side effects as well. The best choice you can make is to call in the Termishield team for a thorough inspection. We will identify all pest issues and come up with a plan made just for you.

Guide To Avoiding Bed Bugs In Valparaiso, IN

When you find bed bugs, you feel like they’re everywhere; and the truth is they really could be. There are a lot of places you’ll want to check because bed bugs are tiny and move from place to place, looking for a new host. So, even though they may have originated in the guest bedroom, they can spread all around the house as soon as one bed bug crawls onto someone or something that is leaving the room.
 
Places bed bugs tend to hide include furniture crevices, behind baseboards, under mattresses, under carpets, behind light switches, picture frames, electrical outlets, inside books, telephones, and radios. As soon as bed bug finds a good hiding spot, they lay eggs at a rapid rate, and the infestation can easily grow out of control. To prevent bed bugs, try these tips:

  • Repair any cracks in your wallpaper or plaster.

  • Reduce clutter around the bed, sofas, and couches.

  • Vacuum around beds and the surrounding areas, then discard the bag outside in the trash.

  • Wash your bedding, linens, curtains, and clothing in hot water and dry on high heat.

  • Use a stiff brush to scrub the seam of the mattress, removing bed bugs and their eggs.

  • Put a zippered cover on the mattress to keep bed bugs from getting in or out.

  • Make sure to check all items like luggage, bedding, or clothing before bringing them inside.
