Rodents Are A Problem, Hawaii

According to a national survey by the Census Bureau, guess what problem was most reported by homeowners? That's right. It was rodents--or specifically, mice. But let's put this into perspective. When asked what major deficiencies were found in the homes surveyed, mice didn't just beat out other pests, they beat out problems with plumbing, heating and electrical. Why is this? Because mice and rats are incredibly resourceful. Here are some things you may not know about rodents and some practical tips to protect your Hawaii home from invasion.

Rats & Roaches On The Rise

It isn't your imagination, rats and roach problems are on the rise in Hawaii. We're starting to get a lot more requests to deal both of these pests. The problem is not only an issue of control, but also an issue of public awareness. If stronger control measures were put into place, Honolulu and other urban centers in Hawaii could drastically reduce the harmful effects of these both rats and roaches. Another problem is that most people don't realize the serious nature of these two infesting pests. Sure, we can all agree that they're disgusting, but it is amazingly easy to turn a blind eye.

Unwanted Guests

We've all had our fair share of unwanted guests. Whether it be your grouchy aunt visiting from Brooklyn or a thousand infesting lice, it is never fun. Pests have no business inside your walls. It is even worse when your unwanted guest brings pestilence in with them. That is what puts rats and mice on the top of the most unwanted list. These rodents are known carriers of Hantavirus, Lassa fever, leptospirosis, Salmonellosis, tularemia, and other bacteria related diseases. This is not a critter you want running around in your kitchen and pantry.

Why Rats Are Dangerous And How To Prevent Them

It is estimated that rodents invade more than 20 million homes in the United States every year. The presence of rodents in Hawaii is certainly a problem. An infestation of rats has called for increased Honolulu rodent control, as there are many potential dangers with the population of rats. Serious property damage has occurred with an infestation of rats from chewing furniture, walls, electrical lines and tearing out insulation. Many personal belongings, no matter how carefully packed, have been destroyed by rats chewing into boxes and building nests. However the greatest danger posed is that these rodents spread many diseases everywhere they go. The accumulation of feces spreads bacteria, contaminates food sources and triggers allergic reactions among humans.
