Cooling Weather Brings Small Rodents Into Unwanted Spaces

There's No Need To Suffer Rodent Infestation At Home Or In The Office


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/29/2014 -- Since time immemorial, rodents -- such as rats, mice and squirrels, have never been far from humans. They just love to eat and urinate on human food stores and sometimes even chew through wiring, creating a potential fire hazard.

It's not cute, and it's not clever! In the Portland and Vancouver areas, the most common rodent populations are the Norway rat and the house rat. Both are excellent at all athletic skills including jumping, climbing and especially gnawing -- and they reproduce like nobody's business.

For homeowners and businesses whose offices may have an infestation, this creates significant health and safety risks. Luckily, help is at hand in the form of Columbia Pest Control, Portland's premier eco-safe pest control company, also operating in Vancouver.

Columbia Pest Control's technicians have been trained in eliminating all major pest infestations in residential, commercial and business settings, and are licensed, bonded and insured in the States of Washington and Oregon.

When it comes to rodents, our technicians are thorough:

We conduct a full investigation to determine and identify the species of rodent

We utilize harborage reduction and install rodent-proofing structures designed to repel rodents

We set humane baits and traps

We monitor and maintain baiting, ensuring that the rodent infestation is gone

Whether an individual, retail or business owner, Columbia Pest Control urges those who believe they have a rat, mice or squirrel problem to call up for advice and a visit from a technician. All technicians are fully licensed, bonded and insured in both the States of Washington and Oregon.

Mike Giskaas, owner of Portland exterminators Columbia Pest Control said today that, "signs of a rodent infestation are fairly easy to detect: small droppings in cabinets -- especially where food is kept, are a great indicator." Continuing, he said "squeaks, nibble and gnaw marks are also classic signs, as are holes in food packaging. Pets, such as cats and dogs, can also act excitably when they detect the presence of rodents. If anyone is getting these signs, we would urge them to contact an exterminator."

Columbia Pest Control has been serving the greater metropolitan area of Portland and Vancouver for over 30 years, and offers pest control and extermination treatments to counter all kinds of infestations.
