Pests Don’t Bother with Social Distancing

Jun 29, 2020 07:45AM ● By David Jones
With so many places still closed, pests are becoming even more ‘social’ and getting way too close for comfort now that they can roam more freely. With less food available for them in restaurants and bars, rodents have been forced to look elsewhere for meals. Additionally, the less severe winters of the past few years have led to a marked increase in the rodent population.

Many pests, as well as fleas, ticks and mosquitoes, are becoming immune to chemicals, making it more important than ever to protect ourselves with nontoxic pesticides and control methods. The continued use of chemicals will only lead to something bad happening in the environment. Choose environmentally friendly treatments because you care.
