The more you know about our area’s common pests and why they are there, the easier it will be to keep them out! Let’s learn a bit about all kinds of rodents.
Clear Them Out & Stop Re-entry
Rodents such as roof rats, Norway rats, and mice are small mammals that regularly invade our homes and businesses. Referred to as commensal rodents, they have come to want to live with us after realizing that our homes and businesses provide them with most of their basic needs. They nest in our yards, houses, and outbuildings, and gather food and water from our gardens, fruit trees, trash cans, and kitchens. Rodents are prolific breeders, and once they are on your property, they multiply quickly and are difficult to control and eliminate without the help of a professional.
Though each rodent species is unique, what connects all rodents are their front incisors that grow throughout their life. Part of why rodents are dangerous and unwanted on our properties is because of their front teeth. Their sharp front teeth will allow them to create openings in walls and floors, chew through boxes, and cut through wires and pipes. In addition to the damage that rodents cause with their teeth, other reasons why these pests are so unwanted is their ability to spread diseases and bacteria, contaminate food and surfaces, and trigger allergies with their shed fur and excrement. Though rodents want to be with us, they are dangerous and destructive, and we should never tolerate their presence in or around our Texas homes.
