The proximity of the Collins View community in Clackamas to both Arnold Creek to the west and Tryon Creek to the south that makes it particularly vulnerable to rodent infestations. Since Collins View is overwhelmingly populated by families, protecting homes from rodent infestations is crucial.
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.
If you have witnessed a rodent inside of your house, then there is a high likelihood that they are nesting nearby (usually in your basement or crawl space). Rodents are drawn towards your crawl space in particular because it provides them warmth and shelter. They 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.

Clackamas’s many varied neighborhoods each have specific needs and vulnerabilities.
