Rodent Control

About House Mice

House mice may burrow into the ground in fields or around structures when other shelter is not readily available. Nesting may occur in the ground or in any sheltered location.

If you are experiencing house mice problems in your home or place of business, chances are these nuisance critters have already established multiple entry points. In addition to damage to your home or business, mice are known for carrying dangerous diseases and parasites and may transmit salmonellosis (food poisoning), rickettsialpox, and lymphocytic choriomeningitis to humans. Mice may also carry leptospirosis, ratbite fever, tapeworms, and organisms that can cause ringworm (a fungal skin disease) in humans as well.

About the Norway Rat

Norway Rats are considered to be the most serious pest animal. They cause significant damage to stored grain, spread diseases, and damage almost any structure.

Norway rats can be found throughout the entire United States and are very resilient urban survivalists. In urban settings, Norway rats favor wet areas and will nest underground in places like basements, subway stations, and sewers. Norway Rats invade homes most often in the winter and spring, and make nests inside attics or basements to escape the cold, or to nest and raise their young.

Norway Rat Problems

It’s likely to find them anywhere there is a significant human population. Norway rats are cause for concern to any homeowner due to the damage they cause and the potential health risks from the diseases they carry.

Rats will burrow underground and generally cause damage upon entry, but also ongoing damage to structures if they are not trapped and removed. Finding a source of food is the main reason for a rat infestation and you will often see them feeding in garbage cans and dumpsters and gardens. These are common complaints within urban and suburban areas.
