Rodents can be a major problem particularly in the bay area. Here in Oakland and surrounding cities like Berkeley, El Cerrito, and San Ramon, the environment is perfect for the reproduction of many rodents. With many hills, forested areas, and trees all around, it’s the area where mice and rats will naturally be living.
Mice will commonly look to houses and buildings throughout the year, and particularly during the Fall and Winter, in search of a warmer and a stable environment where they can get food, be safe, and quickly reproduce.
