Frequently Asked Questions About Rodents

What are rodents?

Rodents are mammals known for their constantly growing front incisors and prolific natures. There are many different types of rodents in our area, but mice and rats are the most likely to invade your property and bring serious issues with them. Rodents are adaptable, reproduce quickly, and find their way inside the smallest of gaps, making them problematic to defeat without professional assistance and a tailored professional rodent removal plan for your property.

Are rodents dangerous?

Rodents are dangerous pests to deal with, and you should try and limit your contact with them as much as possible. All rodents carry bacteria and pathogens with them. When these pests invade your property, they increase your risk of serious illnesses such as salmonella, listeriosis, and hantavirus, among many others.

Rodent droppings and urine may contaminate surfaces or dry up and become airborne, and you might deal with costly property destruction due to their constant gnawing activities.

Why do I have a rodent problem?

Rodents, like many other pests, are attracted to easy food, water, and sheltering sources. If your property has lots of leftover food inside and out, uncovered trash cans and compost piles, moisture issues, cluttered areas, and gaps for the rats and mice to invade, you are likely to encourage an infestation. Effective rodent control includes the elimination of these factors so rodents are deterred from invading your property in the first place.

Where will I find rodents?

Rodents are most commonly found hiding outdoors in cluttered or overgrown areas. You will see them in piles of debris, near trash cans and waste disposal areas, or around compost piles and any type of organic debris. Indoors, rodents may nest in the spaces between walls or other secluded areas like attics, basements, and crawl spaces. It’s important to remove rodents from all their hiding spaces on your property to fully defeat an infestation.
