Eeek! Mouse! How To Stay Healthier with Rodent Control
Did you know that rodents are one of the biggest threats to your family’s health? Not only are rodents scary creatures to many people, they also carry many diseases and are responsible for a great deal of damage to property.
Mice, rats and other rodents may carry the microbes that cause diseases such as Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. HPS is usually spread by the dust from rodent droppings or from their urine or saliva. In over half the cases in which HPS is contracted is has proven fatal.
Symptoms of HPS include fever, chills, muscle aches, nausea and vomiting. Unfortunately, many people who have these symptoms assume it is a case of the flu and do not seek immediate medical treatment. This may be one of the reasons for the high HPS death rate.
Allergy attacks are also common when victims are exposed to rodent droppings and dust. Asthma attacks are possible and can lead to serious complications.
How Can I Stop Rodents From Invading My Home?
It is important to control the rodent population in and around a home. However, many people do not want to use strong chemicals, poisons or pesticides for fear of further contamination or danger to children or pets. Is there a natural, chemical-free way to keep your home free of rodent infestation?
The best way to prevent a rodent problem is to stop rodents before they ever reach your home. There are several ways you can do this but one of the best and most natural ways is to attract predators to your property that eat rodents as part of their natural diet. Barn owls are one of the most natural ways to control the rodent population and ensure that your home and property stay free of mice, rats and other potentially dangerous “critters.”
Barn owls are natural predators. They can eat up to 1,000 rodents each, so a nesting pair will account for at least 2,000 rodents per year and may eat more if they have a clutch of offspring.
Installing several nesting boxes increases your chances of attracting barn owls to your property. Air Superiority offers the very best scientifically-researched nesting box configurations for your home to attract and keep healthy barn owls and families.
For true rodent control that is natural and healthy and avoids the use of harsh and dangerous chemicals, a barn own nesting box may be the best investment you ever make.
