Rat Infestation at San Diego Airport

FAIRFAX, Va. (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.
