Rat borne diseases

Rat borne diseases can be a serious threat

With the advent of commercial type construction it seems that our cities are a megalopolis of people. So we come into contact more often with rat borne diseases. Most noteworthy you recently might remember a child died from Rat Bite Fever and many people have heard of rats biting people across the world. These types of diseases including rat bites and scratches can result in death and rat-bite fever. Rat urine is responsible for the spread of leptospirosis, which can result in liver and kidney damage. While it can also be contracted through handling or inhalation of scat. Especially relevant is that they are still animals and can return to a wild nature and they will bite and scratch.

So if you see one rat or mouse it is time to consult with a Pest Management Professional, call ProBest today at 480-831-9328

Africanized Bees swarm more often, is this strange?

Africanized honeybees have become the dominant type of honey bee for beekeeping in Central America and in tropical areas of South America due to them outcompeting the European subspecies, and there are claims that they have improved productivity.

Tends to swarm more frequently and go farther than other types of honey bees. The swarm above was very limited maybe 50 bees.

Defends its nest agressively, very defensive. May sence a threat from 50 – 100 feet away from nest.

Respond more quickly to a threat, sending more bees if necessary – more bees = the more stings. May chase up to 1/4 mile or more.

Will move nest if food becomes scarce.
