Good to Great Employees Wanted - Norwood, MA

31 Jan 2017

Posted by John D. Stellberger

It doesn't take much more than great team members, training and a revolutionary idea to change the pest management industry.

Becoming a great company is all about its people. Caring people. Intelligent people. People with heart and desire that want to do the right thing everyday.

Some of us don't usually think it's important that great companies have funny people and a sense of humor, but maybe that should change.

EHS has a monthly contest and ask everyone for ideas for a funny scenario that features an animal that you may encounter that you don't consider comical. We try and poke fun at humans.

More Mice Inside in the Winter – Boston, MA

11 Jan 2017

Posted by John D. Stellberger

Winter’s return means more time inside, but not just for you. As temperatures drop, mice and other rodents head indoors in search of food and warmth.

There isn’t a home in this world that doesn’t have mice. Everyone has at least a few mice coming in and out, or living there.

Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a pencil eraser, while rats can fit through one the size of a quarter. They’re both strong swimmers, and can swim through sewer lines or climb up drain pipes to enter homes.

How do I know if I have rodents in my home?

Most people realize they have a rodent problem by seeing their waste, evidence of nesting, gnaw marks on doors and furniture or damage to packaged foods and dry goods.

Mice and rats leave dark brown or black droppings in their walking path, around food sources and nesting areas. The droppings are granular in shape and range from one-fourth to three-eights of an inch. You can gauge the extent of the infestation by the amount of droppings you find.

Other signs include greasy tracks along the floor, or footprints and tail tracks in dusty areas, especially along walls. Activity increases after dark, so you might have more luck looking at night. Listen for squeaks, movement and unexplained sounds coming from behind your walls.

One of the main reasons they take up residence is the abundance of food. Mice prefer grains, so you’re likely to notice tears, rips and bite marks in bags of rice and cereal.

Rodents also chew on wires, PVC piping, furniture, bricks and anything made of wood. They’ve started house fires from chewing through electrical wires.

The greatest threat mice and rats pose, however, is contact with disease and bacteria transmitted through droppings and bites.

Removing rodents

Pest control experts say to evaluate the exterior of your home twice each year for new holes or gaps where rodents can enter. Look for cracks in the foundation, gaps around doors and windows and where the gutters connect to the fascia board.

Pest control professionals say bait boxes and traps are effective in removing rodents, but there are several options available, from traditional traps to no-kill methods that allow you to release them back into the wild.

Bait boxes contain a rodenticide that kills the mouse or rat in a few days. The boxes shelter the poison and keep it out of reach of children and pets. Place them in areas where you’ve seen rodent activity, and in their natural walking paths, such as along walls or corners.

Don’t leave food out on the kitchen counter, and make sure all dry goods and grains are stored in sealed, secure containers.

For large infestations, or if rodents simply make you squeamish, consider hiring a pest control company. For more information contact EHS Pest in Norwood.
