As Mice and Rats Flock to Debris Piles, Reynolds Pest Management Has Advice

With an estimated 50,000 cubic yards of debris to be collected in Port St. Lucie alone, rodents pose dangers but can be controlled, Reynolds Pest Management reports

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - September 28, 2017 /MarketersMedia/

Hurricane Irma left a great deal of damage in its wake, along with other dangers still to be confronted. Piles of debris built up by the hurricane along the Treasure Coast now welcome mice and rats to take up temporary residence. With many area residents and business owners soon to be facing related rodent infestations, Reynolds Pest Management is ready to help.

Many of those accumulations of debris could remain around for some time, even with the cleanup well underway, and rodents will keep using them to take shelter and breed. As a look at the Reynolds Pest Management website at will make clear, however, there are effective ways of responding when mice and rats then try to make the leap to homes and places of business. Although rodents can be especially tenacious and resourceful pests, control, clean-up, and prevention services offered by specialists like Reynolds Pest Management can put a permanent end to any associated problems.

"Hurricane Irma thankfully turned out to be less severe than many forecasters had predicted," said Reynolds Pest Management founder and co-owner Brian Reynolds. "Even so, the hurricane did a great deal of damage throughout the area. According to the Port St. Lucie city government, there are still many places where as much as 90 percent of the debris generated by the hurricane remains to be collected. Those piles are even now enticing mice and rats to venture out, and that can mean trouble for homeowners and businesses. We'd like to invite people throughout the area to visit our website at to learn how best to respond."

A "Debris Collection Application" hosted at the official website of the City of Port St. Lucie details progress being made to remove piles of fallen tree limbs, building materials, trash, and other objects that were gathered by the winds of Hurricane Irma. With seven of the fourteen designated zones still holding 70 percent or more of the debris piles that were left after the hurricane, rats and mice are now more active in many parts of the city than at any time in the recent past.

Since opening its doors in 1991, family owned Reynolds Pest Management has provided the best in rodent control and prevention and other pest management services to residents and businesses throughout the Treasure Coast area. With mice and rats throughout the region living in debris piles and looking for new homes, the Reynolds Pest Management website has information about what can be done to prevent or control infestations.
