About Pest Animal Louisville and Our Services:
Rodents have been associated with household damages and serious diseases. For years, they have been dwelling in the urban jungle. They can survive in the sewers and will often scavenge for leftovers and food scraps. They are secretive animals and they can remain undetected in your house for months. With their incredible adaptability skills, they have successfully learned how to survive in the city.
Why Do Rodents Love the City?
The rats have the capacity to survive by feeding on the human rubbish while remaining hidden from the sight of the humans. They have been living alongside the humans since the agricultural revolution. Due to the high population of humans in the urban areas, the city has become their favorite spot. In the city, there is an overflowing supply of food and water and a minimum presence of the predator. They can access the hole that is about the size of the nickel that enables them to find a secured and safe place. The plumbing and electrical system allows them to move vertically and on higher areas of the human structure. Rodents are often drawn in foods with high content of protein and fats. Therefore, you will often see them scavenging foods in the garbage. They can reach sexual maturity after only six weeks. They can then contribute in increasing their population. Due to the low presence of predators, it is not impossible for their population to go beyond your control. They can easily find a way to access you house and carry microorganism and fungal spores with them.
Issues of Their Presence in The Urban Environment
When in the urban environment, the house mouse, black rat, and the Norway rat are often viewed as public pests. They are always associated with spaces that are not well-maintained. Therefore, the presence of rodents as well as the pathogens that they carry will be more prevalent in certain areas than the others. For example, the Norway rat that is living close to human will have a higher possibility to be infected with Hantavirus than the rodents that are dwelling in urban park. Scientists are finding it hard to study the rodents since they are small and will usually live under the city. They will only be active at nighttime. When people notice the presence of rats, it is an indication that they are already facing a full-blown infestation. Millions of residents are in contact with the rodents which exposes them to the pathogens that they may carry. There are different cases of disease transmission that resulted from the improper handling of the rodents. Last 2017, there has been an outbreak of the Seoul virus in the US. In order to control the presence of the rats in the urban areas, the appropriate practices together with the collaboration of the municipalities and communities is necessary. If possible, the public should be educated on how the issues should be prevented or minimized such as the rodent infestation.
