Take Rodent Control Precautions

The El Paso City-County Health and Environmental District Vector Control Program reminds the public that rodents start to emerge during warm weather causing potential problems. There is a high risk to human health with contamination and damage to private property and businesses, costing thousands of dollars to eradicate these pests. Remember mice and rats require three things to survive: food, water and harborage.

The three R's of rodent control

  1. Reduce any food source inside and outside of your home or business:
  2. Remove standing water on your property
  3. Rid your property of ideal harborage sites
Before using chemicals around your property, consider hiring a licensed professional pest control company to do the job. For more information, call Vector Control at 594-1568.
