Squirrels, mice and rats have always loved to nibble at food stores – and sometimes urinate on them! With the cold weather of winter now in full flow, home and business owners in Portland and Vancouver could be facing a possible rodent infestation as the pest seek warmth, food and shelter.

Rodents are dirty, and carry disease as well as presenting significant health and safety risks by chewing through electrical wires. A rodent infestation also has the capacity to explode fast, thanks to the quick reproduction cycle.
