Houston, we have a problem! The city and surrounding communities has been taken over by roaches and rats… or at least it seems that way in recent weeks. Here at Holder’s Pest Solutions, we’re seeing an increased number of calls about these two pests and unfortunately they are both a threat to people and property. Let’s take a closer look them, shall we?
There are many things that today’s cities strive to earn a top 10 position in, but top 10 cities for most rodents and cockroaches is surely not one of them. Here in Houston we have earned the dubious distinction of being in the top 10 list for the highest rates of rats and cockroaches when comparing the 25 largest cities in the United States. According to the most recent American Housing Survey, Houston ranked 4th highest in rat infestation, 9th highest in cockroaches, and 10th overall in evidence of unspecified rodents. The rodent population is surely a concern when you consider all that these little pests imply.
There are a lot of pests that want to invade your home or business. Some of them are only looking for a place to hide from the weather, but the vast majority come seeking food. If you know what foods pests eat, you can deter them from coming in, or in many cases, from sticking around once they've come in.
Rats and mice can spell big trouble for Houston businesses. These rodents are known for causing all sorts of problems. Not only do they drag in diseases and parasites that pose some pretty serious health risks to your employees and customers but they are also known for contaminating surfaces and chewing through wires, leaving behind an increased risk of fires. These pests can also have irreparable effects on your business' reputation. With the internet and social media today, word of a rodent problem can spread like wildfire and before you know it, you could see business starting to dwindle and your reputation tainted.
