California Drought Drawing Rats Into Homes

The drought is forcing more rodents to search for water and food in California homes and neighborhoods.

Spring is already a busy time of the year for rats and mice since it’s breeding season, but dry conditions are forcing rodents to look for spaces as small as the width of a thumb to get inside homes.

“It’s a very busy time especially with the drought situation,” said Kevin Carpenter with Good Earth Pest Control.

He says mice and rats need at least an ounce of water a day, so they’re targeting homes and backyards that aren’t protected.

“They’re moving to homes where people might have pets or water features, bird baths, that sort of thing in search of water,” he said.
