Rodent, Rats, Mouse Control in Downey California
There has been a recent increase in rodents in California, specially in the Downey area.
In any way you look at it, rats, mice and rodents in general take first place as the most destructive and harmful pests in California.
They are ideally designed to coexist with people in our homes and businesses.
In most California cities like Downey, Long Beach, and Norwalk, infestations are frequent as a result of ideal indoor and outdoor living habitat and many food sources like garbage, birdseeds, fruits and vegetables.
The most serious problems with rodents are the harmful life-threatening diseases that they can transmit to humans such as leptospirosis and murine typhus. This does not include the costly damage to structures that they can cause.
Rodents tend to also chew throu electrical wires which may be responsible for a significant number of house fires in Orange County and other California cities.

Active Termite and Pest Control Inc in Downey CA, wants to alert you to one type of rodent endemic to our area called Deer Mice.
The Deer Mice Epidemic
In the early 90’s, the Deer Mouse was implicated as a possible suspect of a type of hantavirus responsible for a respiratory distress syndrome that lead to several deaths in the Los Angeles area (including Long Beach and other cities).
The common symptoms of HPS (hantavirus pulmonary syndrome) are deep muscle aches, fever, skin irritations, dizzyness, and shortness of breath.
Infected rodents with Hantaviruses are transmitted to human contact thru their waste droppings, urine and saliva.
A person can easily be infected with hantavirus from a single bite, but you can also get infected with the disease from breathing in small particles of rodent waste droppings through a process called aerosolization.
This is why you will always see a rodent exterminator covered from head to toe with protective gear such as gloves, goggles, and a breathing mask.
If you experience any of these symptoms, be sure to contact a doctor in Downey CA and let them know of your possible rodent exposure.
Rodent Control & Removal
Another consistant problem that is caused by rats, mice and other rodents in Downey CA is their stealth tendency to enter homes, businesses and other structures that are not properly pest-proofed.
Once they find a suitable location to live, they will begin building their nest, store food, and will cause extensive damage to furniture, electrical wiring, clothing, and everything inside the property.
Reasons To Be Worried
Aside from being very destructive creatures, they pose an immediate treat to your family’s health, including your own.
All it takes to get a disease is eating contaminated food or drinking something that the rodent was in contact with, or you might get infected if you get bitten by a tick, mite, or flea that recently feed on infected rodents.
Let Active Termite and Pest Control Inc take care of this concern for you.
