Rodents, Rats and Mice

Mouse ExterminatorsRats and mice are important pests entering man's homes and warehouses for food and harborage. These rodents eat any kind of food that people eat. They also contaminate much more food than they eat, with urine, droppings and hair. They can transmit diseases such as bubonic plague, murine typhus and bacterial food poisoning. Many times rats bite people. They can also cause damage and fires to our structures by gnawing. The most common rodent pests are the commensal rodents. These are the rats and mice that have adapted to living with man and sharing his food and shelter. They include the Norway rat, the roof rat and the house mouse.

Controlling Rats and Mice

Exclusion or Rodentproofing is the most effective way to control rodents. Rodentproofing is changing the structure of buildings in order to prevent entry of rats and mice. In considering rodentproofing, you must know that:

Bait stations using a rodenticide can be placed inside the house where mice frequent or under the house in the crawl space to try and control them before they enter the house. Glue boards are effective in not only catching mice but also find out where they are located. They usually only travel in about a 10 to 30 foot radius.
