mouse trying to get into a portland home

Sprague offers tips for residents of the Pacific Northwest to keep rodents out of their homes

Across much of the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain region, the temperatures are cooling off which means mice and rats are likely looking for food, water and shelter. Unfortunately for many businesses in Seattle, Portland and throughout the region, they provide everything rodents need to survive and thrive.

The good news is that your company does not have to fall victim to rodent infestations and all of the dangers associated with these nuisance and damaging pests including:

  • Destroyed or contaminated stock

  • Contaminated food and food preparation areas

  • Spread of diseases including Salmonellosis and Hantavirus

  • Structural damage

  • Risk of fire from rodents gnawing on electrical wiring and equipment


Your company stands a better chance of keeping rodents and the problems they cause out by being proactive and implementing prevention techniques. To help you accomplish this, please review the links below.
