Why Rodents Are Important
For instance, common rodents are an important part of our ecosystem. They are known as “bottom-feeders.” Most rodents are scavengers and eat whatever they find. For example, in the wild, rodents eat fallen nuts and berries, and dead carcasses – by keeping the forest floor clean. In populated areas, however, rodents use humans as their primary food source! For this reason, make sure you leave nothing out in the open that an invasive rodent can easily trace and claim as theirs.
There are very few predatory rodents and most rodents are at the bottom of the food chain. They feed other animals in our areas such as birds, reptiles, and wolves.
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.
Mice and Rats Are Intelligent
Amazingly, mice share a close DNA to humans and have approximately the same brain-to-body size ratio of 1:40. As well as, sharing many commonalities. That’s why we understand when they need food, water, and shelter to survive. In fact, 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.
Rats and mice are nocturnal, so visible activity during the day is a sign of a larger infestation. But if you suspect an infestation in your home, CALL US TODAY for a free inspection. *
Also, another clear sign of a rodent infestation is their small brown/black pellets which they will drop 40-100 times per day. Meanwhile, 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 that needs closing. Once there is a seal, no rodent shall leave unless caught.
Rodent Prevention Tips
In particular, inspect common points of entry – NO hole should be able to fit a regular-size pencil or a little mouse may squeeze through!

- Seal foundation
- Seal around patio doors
