Rodents – A Danger To Property, Pets & Health
According to the CDC, rats and mice have many ways to spread disease. Rodent droppings, saliva, fur, and parasites can all contaminate your home and contribute to health problems. Their gnawing and nesting can also cause costly property damage over time.

Where To Look For A Rat’s Nests
Rodents build nests wherever there is space for them. Depending on the species, these rats and mice can produce between 8 and 14 babies per litter. In just weeks, each new rat or mouse can start litters of their own. It won’t take long for your home or business to be overrun with rodents and their offspring.

Rodent Prevention Tips
While professional rat exterminators provide the best control, you can help deter rodents year-round with prevention measures.
- Seal all possible entryways with weather stripping, steel wool, hardware cloth, and caulk. Mice can fit through a hole the size of a dime.
- Keep landscaping trimmed back from the home’s exterior. This removes hiding spots.
- Store food including pet food in airtight containers to remove an attractant.
- Take out the garbage regularly and keep trash cans tightly closed. Pick up any fallen debris and fruits around the home.
- Fix leaky plumbing. Rodents need water to survive.
- Use traps or repellents inside if needed, but avoid poison baits outdoors where pets could access them.
Signs Of Rodent Infestation
Rodents love both food and warmth. Without proper prevention measures, it’s only a matter of time until you find one in your kitchen. They are most active at night. So you might not see them until you already have an infestation.

Rodent Control FAQ
Q: How can I tell if I have rats vs mice?
A: Rats leave droppings 3⁄4 inch or larger. Mice droppings are 1⁄4 inch or less. Rats also make louder noises, leave wider rub marks, and need dime-sized holes vs mice only needing gaps the width of a pencil.
Q: How do I get rid of rodents permanently?
A: It’s difficult to fully prevent any future rodent activity. Focus on exclusion methods like sealing and cleaning to make the home less welcoming. Ongoing trapping and professional treatments will manage any recurring issues.
Q: Is it safe to use rat poison in my home?
A: Most rodenticides pose some risks, especially to children and pets. Work with your pest control company to choose products appropriate for your situation. Never use outdoor poisons inside.
Q: How can I find where rodents are getting in my house?
A: Inspect along the baseboards inside and foundation outside. Look for rub marks, gnaw marks, holes, or any openings bigger than 1⁄4 inch. Attics, sinks, and crawl spaces are other common entry points.
Q: How long does it take pest control to get rid of rodents?
A: After an initial treatment plan, most infestations can be cleared within 2-4 weeks. Quickly sealing entry points helps eliminate shelters. Follow all recommendations to keep rodents from returning.
