Bird Feeder Brings Rodent Issue to an Arlington Virginia House
During one inspection of a home with a potential rodent problem, Clifford grew concerned about an empty bird feeder. Birds fed on seeds which had fallen to the ground but these would have been equally attractive to mice, rats or squirrels. So readily attainable a source of food to a rodent would encourage nest building in the vicinity. And it would not be long before they invaded your home.
Clifford did give the customer two options, first one was keeping the feeder, we would put the bait station under it and to reduce the rodent population. But it was not a way to get rid of the problem and for the squirrel we were not accepted to use bait regarding the law. Customer would need extra money every month in prevention if they would keep the feeder. The second one was remove the bird feeder with related treatments, in this way, we could solve the problem from the source.
