Pests Control Experts Busy As Temps Fall

(Springfield, MO) -- The temperatures are dropping and the Ozarks is getting its first taste of snow this season. That also means you could be getting some unwanted visitors.

During this time of year exterminators see their business triple. That's in part because a lot of people don't normally like to deal with mice or rats on their own. "I was screaming and everything. Maybe because I'm a woman but I don't do mice," said Cheryl Richardson.

Needless to say, Cheryl Richardson doesn't like mice. But that didn't stop the rodents from making themselves at home, once in her kitchen, and then in her well house. "I was getting ready to go to work and all of the sudden I had no water," said Richardson.

"These wires, they gnaw on those so what they did is they shorted this box out and her well didin't work anymore," said exterminator Steve Lawson.

Lawson said mice look for three things when they're trying to find a place to nest.  Shelter, food and water, and they're pretty creative about finding ways inside. "What a lot of people don't realize is they'll get up under your crawl space and run around on your pipes until they find an access point," said Lawson.
