How Rodents, Pigeons and Other Wildlife Can Affect Your
Rodents, pigeons and other wildlife can have harmful effects upon
your health, your family's health as well as cause damage to your
home. It is important to fully understand the dangers stemming from
these types of infestations. Below is a more detailed overview of
the health risks associated with particular rodents and birds.
Florida & Jacksonville Rodent Control: Rat
Extermination & Mice Prevention
Rodents (such as mice, rats, chipmunks and squirrels) can enter a
home through almost any opening or crack. It is important to
inspect for mouse or other rodent droppings, especially in
undisturbed areas such as pantries, under baseboards, in attics and
along walls. Rodent droppings most often cause allergic reactions
in human beings but can also cause disease, including the
potentially deadly Hantavirus. More frequently, though, rodents
serve as vectors, carrying bacteria, such as salmonella, on their
bodies and contaminating food sources, kitchen surfaces and
equipment. Arrow's trained Florida rat exterminators and rodent
control professionals can offer the expertise and knowledge of
rodent biology to best protect your health and rid your home of a
Florida & Jacksonville Pigeon & Bird
Pigeons are filthy birds and carry many other pests on them, such
as fleas, ticks and mites, which pose their own health dangers to
the public, including lime disease. Pigeons themselves are known to
carry several diseases and can contaminate food, causing salmonella
poisoning. Arrow's trained Jacksonville

to rid your property of these creatures. We can not only safely
eliminate the pigeons but can also help determine where and why
