Rodents

What are rodents?

The class of creatures called "rodents" refers to any animal whose incisor teeth continue to grow, so they must continually gnaw in order to keep them operative.  There are more than 2,200 different rodents. Together they make up more than 40% of all mammals.  In this group you will find: common house miceroof ratsNorway ratsPolynesian rats.   Of all species of rodents, mice and rats are a problem when they find their way into your home. They like to be near humans so that they have a ready supply of food. This has earned them the term "commensal," which means "to share one's table."

Why do I have them?

Mice and rats are particularly dependent on humans for survival.  They will gain entry into our homes or business through small cracks and holes in search for shelter, food and water.

Are they dangerous?

Rodents are known carriers of 35 diseases that humans are susceptible to including, Salmonellosis, leptospirosis and typhus.  Their droppings can contaminate our food supply and products.  They carry fleas and ticks, which can also infest your home and rodents can also do physical damage your home or business. They easily chew through some types of siding and other building materials. They are also known to chew on electrical lines, thereby increasing the possibility of fire. They damage other materials as well, creating holes and gnawing on numerous objects, especially food or food containers.
