Frequently Asked Questions About Rodents

What are rodents?

Rodents are a type of mammal that is characterized by their generally smaller bodies and constantly growing front teeth. All rodents have the urge to constantly chew and gnaw on items in order to keep their front teeth in shape, something that makes them particularly destructive.

There are a few different types of rodents you may encounter around the Georgetown, TX, area, including Norway rats, roof rats, and mice. Both species of rat tend to be bigger than mice and have fur that ranges from brown to gray and black, while mice tend to have brownish-gray fur.

Are rodents dangerous?

Rodents are some of the most dangerous pest invaders you can have due to their unhygienic and destructive natures. Rodents carry diseases such as hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, tularemia, and salmonella; they spread these diseases around your property as they scavenge for food, nest, and leave behind droppings and urine.

Rodent infestations may also trigger allergic reactions and respiratory issues, in addition to causing significant destruction as these pests chew through virtually every material in order to make nests and keep their front teeth in shape.

Why do I have a rodent problem?

Rodent problems typically occur on properties with plenty of food, water, and nesting spots within easy reach. Effective home pest control and commercial pest control services involve reducing access to these items in both interior and exterior areas to deter rodents from approaching your property in the first place.

Where will I find rodents?

Rodents are most commonly found hiding outdoors around piles of debris, near waste disposal areas, and underneath outbuildings or decks and patios. Once they infiltrate interior spaces, rodents often nest in kitchens, basements, bathrooms, garages, attics, and spaces between walls.
