As communities stay inside and, in many cases, at home, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, pests such as rodents, will have less to prevent them from braving out into broad daylight to find water and food sources. If their typical nesting and feeding locations are bare due to closed businesses, there is no doubt that they will resourcefully seek a new location for water, food and shelter. Without proper, ongoing pest control efforts, rodent populations will move from areas where businesses are closed, to areas where food and water are readily available.
At home, homeowners may see pests in new and different places during this period of change. Pests are known to adapt easily to changes in the environment and are already quickly adjusting to our new normal. The tower of cardboard boxes waiting to be safely broken down from increasing home deliveries, as one example, make excellent hiding spots for pests in garages or next to trash cans.
