When it comes to rodents, especially deer mice, there’s no room for error. The potential for the spread of Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome is real and not worth the risk to save a few dollars. Four Seasons’ ZeRo Program is suitable for every rodent infestation because it can be tailored to each unique need. Additionally, it can be fitted to correspond with almost any budget.

In this video, Hess explores the biology, reproduction, threats, and control of Peromyscus maniculatus, or the deer mouse. Educating our service technicians is certainly important and is a constant process. However, our customers and the general public also need education on pests and pest problems. Therefore, we dedicate valuable time and effort to bringing you this information so that you may be able to make educated decisions on how to best control pest problems when they occur.
