Posted on 3/15/2011 at 4:06PM by Cindy Mannes
Spring is finally here, which means many people will be departing on spring break vacations. While it is thoughtful to bring home gifts for friends and family, at Arrow Exterminators, we always warn our customers against bringing home unwanted "souvenirs."

Hopefully you read part one of our Wildlife Series which dealt with pesky rodents like mice, rats and roof rats. We also wanted to make sure you are aware of other fall intruders such as raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks and bats. Similar to rodents, these creatures are seeking food and shelter from the cold months ahead. Squirrels and raccoons are similar to rodents in that they build their nests in crawl spaces and attics and will cause damage to a structure to get inside and once inside the home, they can be destructive as well. Raccoon hands are very adept, so it is important to keep trashcans properly sealed. If you notice a raccoon in or around the home, it's important to...Read More »
