If you can fit a pencil under a door or in a break in your window seal, your home could become infested with rodents.  Here in Maine, homeowners often find themselves battling mice, rats and other rodents, especially in the fall and winter. Once inside, these critters will take over quiet areas like attics, storage closets, wall voids and begin nesting and breeding.  You may hear activity in the ceilings and walls at night, discover droppings in your kitchen, or find that these destructive pests have contaminated insulation with feces and urine, damaged drywall, structural supports and other building materials, and gnawed through furniture, storage containers and other belongings.  Worse, rodents are a potential threat to health.  They have the ability to introduce fleas, ticks (which can carry Lyme disease) and droppings and urine from infected rodents can expose you and your family members to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome.  Rodent infestations can also lead to salmonellosis and rat-bite fever.  At Pine State Pest Solutions, we realize the threat rodents pose to people and property and are ready to help you get rid of mice, rats and other rodents.
