Rodentsrodent

Mice and rats can become a genuine problem when they are in your home. They like to be near humans so that they have a ready supply of food. This has earned them the term "commensal," which means 'to share one's table'.

The class of creatures called "rodents" actually encompasses a whole lot more than just mice and rats. It refers to any animal whose incisor teeth continue to grow, and so they must continue to gnaw in order to keep them under control.

There are more than 2,200 different rodents, and together they make up more than 40% of all mammals. In this group you will find: mice, rats, squirrels, capybaras, nutria, chipmunks, prairie dogs, and many more.

Removing rodents can sometimes be as easy as setting a mouse trap; but a larger infestation (especially with rats or larger rodents) can be a real problem. Rats, especially, are smart and can learn to avoid traps.

Rodents can carry up to thirty-five diseases that humans are susceptible to, which is another reason to get rid of them as soon as possible. Cleaning up after a rodent infestation also requires a great deal of caution. This is necessary because of the possibility of fleas or mosquitoes - which can also bring those diseases indirectly to you, your children, or your pets. There is also a danger involved if you stir up the dust of their nest, as well, and breathe in some of that bacteria.

Rodents can also damage your home or business, too. They can chew through some types of siding and other building materials, and are well known to chew on electrical lines; thus, increasing the possibility of a fire. They damage other places as well, and create holes and gnaw on numerous objects - especially on food or food containers.
