Clackamas is full of charming neighborhoods for families, trendy urbanites, and even active retirees. Through Clackamas are friendly residential communities that positively radiate with warmth and comfort. Among those neighborhoods is Bridlemile, a family neighborhood brimming with families and school-aged children. It is these homes that are vulnerable to common rodent infestations, especially as the weather warms.
Rats and mice can cause a lot of problems for homeowners and should not be ignored. According to the Center For Disease Control, rodents can carry 35 different diseases. Although it is very rare for a homeowner to contract any of these diseases, it still should not be ignored. In addition to this, rats and mice will contaminate the areas where they live and breed with their urine and feces.
Rodents typically are able to access the crawl space easily by entering through a broken foundation vent screen or burrowing underneath the foundation. Once they are established, their scent can also attract more rodents. They also reproduce very quickly (a female mouse can have over 70 babies a year), so the problem can get out of hand very quickly if it goes unchecked. For severe infestations in the crawl space, you may have to have a crawl space restoration performed, which can be costly.
