Ant Activity In Denver Is Increasing & Mice Are Still A Problem

Ant & rodent activity in Denver

It’s official – spring has arrived in Denver. Mornings are a bit chilly still but days are warmer and it won’t be long before brown grass turns green and buds start blooming. Though we cannot rule out the potential for snow fall in the weeks ahead, we can say with certainty that we’ve turned the corner and winter is in the rearview mirror.  Of course, since March is sort of a transitory month, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that while ants in Denver are becoming more active, mice are still wreaking havoc in and around homes throughout the region.

Mice in Denver 

A common problem in the fall and winter months, mice in Denver can be problematic this time of year as well. Though they are smaller than rats, these rodents are no less a threat to health and property in the Mile High City. And unfortunately, there’s more than one type of mouse running afoot.
