Rat Infestation at San Diego Airport

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Rodents tend to seek shelter indoors, especially during the cooler fall and winter months. But, sometimes they invade structures other than homes – like restaurants, schools and even airports.

In fact, mice made their way inside the BWI airport in December, and today a report surfaced that rats were spotted in food service establishments within the San Diego airport. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the airport has hired a pest control company to address the rodent problems.

To prevent a rodent infestation, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recommends sealing any cracks on the exterior of a structure and ensuring proper drainage at the foundation. If evidence of a rodent infestation is found, such as rodent droppings or gnawed wires, do not hesitate to contact a pest professional. A small rodent problem can turn into a big infestation overnight if left untreated.
