Problems Rats Can Cause For Ripon, CA Residents

It’s hard to imagine a rodent that won’t cause problems. Rats are not a pest you want in your home. They have these sharp incisors that never stop growing, giving them to need to chew constantly. What do you think they find to chew on?

When you think about rats, you may think about holes chewed through walls and food stolen in the middle of the night. These problems are more obvious. The scarier problems are the ones we don’t often stop to think about, such as parasites, sickness, and disease. Because rats are furry, warm-blooded creatures, parasitic pests such as ticks, fleas, and mites will use them as hosts. This becomes especially problematic when rats invade homes and these freeloading, tag-along pests jump off to find new hosts.

Rats are filthy creatures that have been known to carry a variety of bacteria and diseases, including lymphocytic choriomeningitis, salmonellosis, leptospirosis, and dysentery. All in all, rats are not pests you want in your home. To keep rodents such as rats out of your home, contact Insect IQ and find a plan that works for you.

Commercial Pest Control In Ripon, CA

Have you ever read in the news about a restaurant being shut down due to pests? Maybe rats were found in the kitchen, or possibly a cockroach in the food. Either way, a pest was responsible. Whether you own a restaurant, a food packaging facility, or a business that doesn’t handle food at all, pests are a threat. Pest birds can fly into heavy machinery, rats and mice can scare off customers, and a cockroach found in a pie can cause your business to shut its doors in a heartbeat.

The good news is that Insect IQ offers the best commercial pest control you can find here in Ripon. Our service goes above and beyond the call of duty, and our customer reviews speak for themselves. If a pest-free* business is what you are looking for, you have found it here with Insect IQ.

Tips To Avoid Wasps In Ripon, CA

Wasps can be a serious threat to any outdoor activity. Picnics and barbecues can quickly turn scary if someone stumbles across a wasp nest. With that in mind, we offer the following exclusion tips to help you avoid wasps on your property:

  • When grilling outside, store all leftover food properly once you have finished. Wasps are drawn to meats and sweet things. The less they can find, the less likely they are to be buzzing around your outdoor meals.
  • Wasps are also fond of similar foods that they may find in our trashcans. For this reason, make sure all of your trash cans have secure lids.
  • Be careful not to leave open drinks outside, especially sweet drinks. These beverages will invite wasps onto your property, and possibly even give them a reason to settle down and build a nest.
  • If you feed your pets outside, consider bringing their food inside after each feeding. There are many pests including wasps that your pet’s unattended food will invite onto your property.
  • When it comes to dealing with wasps on your property, there is no one better for the job than the professionals here at Insect IQ. Contact us at Insect IQ today!
