If you didn't know yet, we would like to remind you that Rodent Awareness Week is here again, October 23rd-29th. This annual event helps people to truly understand the dangers associated with rodents. They can enter inside through the tiniest of cracks and gaps of Hawaii properties and can cause major issues for both home and business owners. Our rodent control experts at Sandwich Isle want to make you aware of the consequences associated with rodents invading your property and how you can protect it and yourself from these furry, beady-eyed pests!

Rodents are common household pests that are found living all across the country even on the islands found in beautiful Hawaii. Rodents are known as commensal pests because over time they have come to somewhat rely on people for their basic needs of food, water, and shelter. Once rodents get into your home they take no time making themselves at home and making you miserable.

They create nests in attic spaces, behind walls, in crawl spaces, and even behind large appliances found in your home. Rodents will enter into your home’s kitchen and pantry areas to forage for food, chewing through boxes and packages found in your kitchen contaminating them with their urine and feces. Rodents spread many serious diseases including Hantavirus, Salmonella, and Leptospirosis through their excrement and can even introduce other parasites into your home like fleas and mites. Rodents aren’t just dangerous they are also very damaging, they will chew through wires, pipes, cables, drywall and insulation. Their chewing can also destroy personal items including clothing, books, pictures, furniture, and more.

Business owners also need to remain very vigilant against rodents and stop them from getting into their commercial facilities. Rodents can be difficult to prevent and control inside of businesses because of the abundant amount of space that they generally have to hide and nest in. Inside of commercial properties, rodents cause the same damages as in residential homes, but rodents can cost a business something that is priceless- it's reputation. If rodents or signs of rodent activity are discovered by a customer word will quickly get around and the reputation of your business will be damaged within the community.
