A Cold Winter in St. Louis Can Bring More Rodent Problems

This has been one the worst winters in St. Louis for some time.  Between all the snow and frigid temperatures, there has been an increase in rodent activity in structures all across the metro area.  A lot of the food sources that would normally be available to those rodents living outside haven’t been available this year due to the weather conditions. The frozen temperatures are making it much harder for rodents to find water instead of ice.  Food thrown into dumpster area frozen solid making it harder for it to be eaten and/or detected.  And digging a new burrow above the frost line is impossible.  This factors alone can cause an increase of activity into your home or place of business.

If you are experiencing rodent activity, attack them head on with a variety of traps (baits, traps and sticky traps).  If you let a new problem get out of hand it will be much more difficult to handle and gain control.  We offer a full line of traps at our three retail locations for the D.I.Y.’ers or you can contact us for professional help as well.
