Frequently Asked Questions About Rodents
What are rodents?
Rodents are troublesome pests notorious for their constantly growing large front teeth, prolific nature, and widespread infestations that are difficult to remove without professional assistance. Many different types of rodents may invade your property, but mice and rats are the most common.
Mice are smaller than rats and tend to have grayish-brown fur, while rats grow large, have longer tails, and their fur ranges from dark brown and gray to black. Both types of rodents bring significant health and safety issues with them once they invade a property, making quick and reliable rodent control essential.
Are rodents dangerous?
Rodents are dangerous for several reasons. These pests carry serious illnesses with them and spread pathogens throughout the properties they invade. Illnesses rodents can transmit to you include hantavirus, salmonella, and tularemia, among many others. In the case of mice, their urine and feces often dry up and become airborne, greatly increasing your risk of disease.
Rodents also carry parasitic pests like fleas and ticks on their bodies, dropping these off when they scavenge and causing further infestation issues for your interior and outdoor areas.
Additionally, all rodents are constantly chewing, and once they invade your property, they will gnaw their way through wood, electrical lines, plumbing, brick, and cinder block. Over time, a rodent infestation causes serious structural damage and the need for costly repairs.
Why do I have a rodent problem?
In most cases, rodent problems occur on properties that have plenty of rodent necessities like food, water, and shelter on display. If you see more and more rodents around your property, you are likely attracting them with leftover food, excess moisture, and accessible harborage areas.
Where will I find rodents?
Outdoors, rodents commonly hide around woodpiles, piles of debris, and within long grass or overgrown foliage. Once they move inside, rodents head to kitchens, food storage areas, bathrooms, basements, attics, and spaces between walls.
