What Rodents Could Affect Your Home?
“Rodent” is usually a catch-all term for furry critters that get inside your house. Depending on the species of animal, they may occupy crawlspaces, attics, walls, cabinets, or closets and do a variety of different types of damage.
Some of the normal culprits include:
Although they are not technically rodents, several other mammals are generally thought of as rodents because of their similar characteristics and their ability to be a nuisance. This can include raccoons and possums, which are also a problem for homeowners.
Identifying the species invading your home or business is critical to taking care of a nuisance rodent infestation. Every species is treated differently due to their behaviors and characteristics, which is why it’s always a good idea to work with a professional pest removal company.

What is Rodent Control?
Rodent control is a process that involves the removal of any rodents from a property. This can include rats, mice, and other pests.
Rodent control can consist of:
- Keeping rodents out of an area
- Getting rid of rodents already in an area
- Controlling the population of rodents in an area
- Preventing rodents from causing damage to buildings or other structures
It's important to consider all factors when controlling these pests, including their biology, habits, and environmental conditions. In general, rodent control can be done using one of three methods: baits, traps, or repellents.
Baits are typically delivered in a food-based form that lures rodents toward a trap or other device where they can be killed humanely (or relocated).
Traps can be set off manually by an exterminator or passively by an automatic system that detects when an animal is inside and activates the trap accordingly.
Repellents are often used as part of integrated pest management programs to prevent rodents from coming into contact with food sources or nesting materials in certain areas where they've been seen before—usually near kitchens or garbage cans.
The best way to determine if you need rodent control is by looking for signs of their presence: droppings, gnawing on things like wires or woodwork, tracks in dust or dirt on floors or walls, etc. If you see any of these things around your home or office building then it's likely time for rodent control services!
What Problems Can Rodents Cause?
Certain rodents do different types of damage. For example, mice and rats are generally attracted to food in your home. They can chew into food they deem enticing or they can even be attracted by food residue from cooking. Evidence of mice and rats can include evidence of chewing on food and droppings left on meal preparation surfaces. They also have a distinct odor that is excreted in their urine.
Squirrels are known for chewing their way through eaves and vents and invading your attic. Often the first sign of squirrel infestation is the noise they make scampering through your attic. If they are not dealt with, they can ruin ceilings from droppings that accumulate at nesting sites. It is also common for squirrels to chew through wiring.
Gophers, moles, and groundhogs are notorious for ravaging yards and landscaping. They tunnel underground in search of roots and worms that they feed upon. The damage caused by these subterranean animals can be difficult to remediate.
