Infographic: The Growing Rodent Problem In America

Mouse By TailA survey was recently conducted by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) where it has been determined that the most common pest infestations in the United States have to do with rodents; mice and rats inparticular. The NPMA is reporting that almost 1/3 of Americans (29%) have had problems with rodents at one time or another, in varying degrees, last year.

The survey was conducted online in the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of the NPMA, from November 22-26, 2013, among 2,033 adults ages 18 and older.

The following infographic, put together by the NMPA, breaks down exactly what the NMPA found with their survey and offers a few pointers on making your home and property rodent proof:

When referring to rodents, pest management professionals are speaking primarily of rats, mice, gophers, and squirrels. Because of their short breeding cycles, their hardiness, and their ability to eat almost anything; some 21 Million rodent pests are now invading our homes. They destroy our property with their chewing and their nest building, leave their droppings everywhere, and have a disgusting odor that lets everybody know of their presence.

Serious rodent infestations should be treated by highly trained and licensed pest control or wildlife control professionals.

  1. Lint bugs are real !! Except I’m going insane I have carpet beetles & Meal moth infestation ? but I believe it’s the carpet beetles larvae or a smaller version they eat cotton & fungus so it starts in usually the feet but they get tangled up in the lint especially socks sometimes you will feel a bite and it’s lint or if they move to black jeans or shirt you will see the white from the sock / lately I will feel a itching/ digging feeling & it’s a white hard thing?? Like a grain of salt they also somehow get in cigarettes some ashes fly at you against the wind ?? I’m going crazy my family thinks I’m imagining them ( they love your hair & have a sticky secretion ( take a picture with a smartphone) you will see your hair has like lice eggs And lose hair I can’t see anything but the sores & wounds but Doctors & Dermatologist say it’s eczema one asked ok needed to see a psychiatrist?? My I -phone is how I see a lot of the stuff on my skin & body , Collembra ? Springtails I believe are under my skin up my nose started in hair & now pubic if anyone knows the answer HELP!! I always feel a nervous feeling and have no energy to work is all I can handle & now I can barely work I don’t know !! My palms get dry and u can see a spot & then it peels / falls off ?? I need someone to look under a microscope also my skin that peels will like move after a minute or so ( I keep my clothes in bags ) but I’m at the point where all I do is sleep & work no sprays seem to work??? Confused ( also feel like a brain fog) I don’t know if I have a few different problems ie mites & springtails?? The white things have gotten worse & vary in size

  2. OMG! I have never seen anything like this! This is a nightmare and it is making my dogs and myself I’ll. Friend say not bedbugs they are nothing!! Kness down are so swollen and hurt. Bed bugs little tiny round brown and yes those are a night made also. Nothing seems to work to get rid of. Feeling like not getting better. I hate what it is doing to my animals and myself.
