The city of Yonkers is a tight knit community with close living quarters. Because of this, residents may notice rodents in or around their homes. Mice and rats are drawn to water sources, as they offer food, like garbage or insects, and protection, like leaves and sticks. Homes that border the Hudson River may experience more rodent activity than usual. As the weather becomes cooler, rodents often attempt to move indoors for comfort and safety. Unfortunately, they’re able to squeeze through small holes and cracks. Small mice can squeeze through one the size of a dime, and rats can squirm through one the size of a quarter. This applies to any level of the home. It’s important to keep an eye out for rodent droppings, especially if scratching or gnawing sounds are heard in the house. While homes can undergo structural damage from rodents, droppings are also dangerous because they can carry diseases. If you or a family member suspects rodents are on the loose or nesting in your home, call Fox Pest Control today for expert rodent extermination.
Jim Buick, Branch Manager of Fox Pest Control – Hudson Valley, was born in Yonkers. His father was a Yonkers firefighter, and Jim’s family used to visit him at the firehouse and watch the horses race at Yonkers Raceway across the street. Jim still roadtrips there from time to time to get Nathan’s hotdogs, which he considers to be the best hot dogs around.
