These are just some of the many things pest controllers  hear on a daily basis. We are lucky to live in such a location that doesn’t have some of the more larger pests such as spiders and snakes.


In actual fact the one we come across in our life which causes the most deaths on this planet is the MOSQUITO.

This most dangerous pest on Earth causes about a million deaths every year, mostly by transmitting malaria disease.

House Mouse

Believe it or not, the house mouse is even more dangerous than the rat. It’s a lot smaller in size, and exactly because of that, it needs a lot less food and water to survive. Not only that, but mice reproduce faster than rats, because of their evolutionary disadvantage of being smaller.

Also, mice carry more diseases. Not only with their bites and excrement, but also with their fur. Truth is, rats groom themselves very often, just like cats. While mice tend to leave the dirt on, and over time, it turns into a greasy protector which also helps them squeeze through narrow places.

This is also the best way to realize you have mice in your home instead of rats – greasy spots. Which also carry diseases. Rely on professional pest control to spare yourself the nightmare.
