Deer mice are active all year and store food for the winter season like nuts, seeds, berries, and insects. They live in wood or shrubby areas but frequently enter houses, garages, storage sheds, and stored campers during the colder months and cause damage to food supplies and furnishings.

Most common ways to spot rats is droppings, scratching sound in your walls or insulation of your home ripped apart. Rats live near humans for the food we waste or leave behind. Rats commonly carry disease in their urine, bites, scratches, droppings and carry fleas. Having rats near or in your home is a health risk and you should call Guardian Pest Control right away.
