CDC warnings of 'unusual or aggressive rodent behavior' in search of new food sources

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that rodents are becoming increasingly aggressive for food amid large restaurant closures due to an outbreak of rodents.

In a notice posted on its website, the health agency said that rodents depend on food, and on waste generated by companies serving in particularly dense commercial areas. Proximity and service limitations have caused rodents to discover new food sources and exhibit more erratic behavior.

The CDC said some areas reported an "increase in rodent activity" and said that environmental health and rodent control programs should be devised to receive more calls about "unusual or aggressive rodent behavior".

Residents and business owners can prevent rodents from turning off access to their homes or buildings, removing debris and heavy vegetation, placing garbage in well-covered containers, and removing pet food, the CDC advised.

The agency also noted the need to follow established protocols when cleaning after rodent infection to avoid exposure to rodent-borne diseases.

Rodents have caused problems for many cities in America. America in the midst of an outbreak of new coronovirus.

According to NBC News, between March and April, Washington, D.C. Has received approximately 500 rodent calls during a 30-day period.

Baltimore reportedly saw about 11,000 "active" calls or 311 online requests about mice during the same period.

Chicago is also one of the cities where rats and rodents changed their behavior by forcing food.

"As they search for food, people notice them more," said Robert Willmill, owner of Chicago-based Crow Pest Control Inc. "Rats spread disease and are very unsightly, so that's great. People want to take steps to keep mice away from their homes."
