Why Rodents Are Important

Rodents are an important part of our ecosystem. They are known as “bottom-feeders.” Most rodents are scavengers and eat whatever they find.  In the wild, rodents eat fallen nuts and berries, and dead carcasses – preventing disease and keeping the forest-floor clean. In populated areas however, rodents use humans as their primary food source – they will eat all our trash! Make sure you leave nothing out in the open that an invasive rodent can easily trace and make themselves at home in your home.

There are very few predatory rodents and most rodents are at the bottom of the food chain. They feed other animals in our area such as birds, reptiles, and wolves. 

Rodents Chew and Chew and Chew

Rodents teeth constantly grow their entire life. If they do not find wood to break down their incisors, their teeth become overgrown into their skull.  If they infest your home or business, everything becomes their gnawing toys.

Rodents Are Intelligent

Mice share a close DNA to humans and have approximately the same brain-to-body size ratio of 1:40. They share many commonalities and we can understand when they need food, water, and shelter.  Some people may even find them cute and keep mice as pets.  Many domesticated mouse species are easily discernable from their invasive cousins by their markings a much cleaner appearance. A gutter rat from the sewer will not look like a well-kept mouse in a cage with fluffy bedding.

 

On the other hand, musophobia (fear of mice) and murophobia (fear of mice and rats) are two of the most common fears people can have.

Rodent Infestations

Rats and mice are nocturnal, so visible activity during the day is a sign of a larger infestation. If you suspect an infestation in your home, CALL US TODAY for a free inspection. *

If you don’t spot any rodents, another clear sign of a rodent infestation is their small brown/black pellets which they will drop 40-100 times per day.  If you notice any droppings call us for an inspection so we can find the spot your rodents entered and seal it up.  Many times, there is just one entrance to your interior needs to be closed. Once sealed up, no rodent shall leave unless caught.

Rodent Prevention Tips

Inspect common points of entry – NO hole should be able to fit a regular-size pencil or a little mouse may squeeze through!

  • Replace under door sweeps
  • Seal foundation
  • Seal around patio doors
  • inspect and window ledges for gaps

It is natural for a building after years to settle and ledges and seams to warp inside.  Our professional rodent control experts use the most efficient ways of sealing these gaps so rodents cannot return.
