Temperatures in the NJ area can get bitterly cold during winter. Does this mean that you can expect fewer rats and mice around? Unfortunately, you might actually have a bigger chance of dealing with them and needing Monmouth County rodent control in winter.
Rodents and Cold Temperatures
Rats and mice aren’t built to handle severely cold or below freezing temperatures. To stay alive, they need to find a warmer place to go where they’ll be able to get food and water. While some rodents might stay in underground burrows for shelter, others invade houses and other buildings during the colder part of the year.
Your home can provide mice and rats with a dry and warm place to stay throughout winter. If they learn that you have food and water easily accessible for them, these pests might make themselves at home all year round.
What to Do About a Winter Rodent Problem
Mice and rats can be hard to get rid of on your own. Since these rodents can bite or scratch or spread germs around via their urine and feces, you should have pest control experts handle them. Dealing with a rodent problem right away is important, so you’ll have a lower risk of getting sick from their germs.
