Essential Rodent Information

Rodents are dangerous pests to deal with, and infestations of rodents around your property should be met with assistance from Covenant Pest Control to effectively defeat these pests.

Frequently Asked Questions About Rodents

What are rodents?

Rodents are mammals known for their continuously growing front teeth and the trouble that they bring to the properties they invade. There are many different types of rodents, but the species that cause the most trouble in our area include field mice and Norway rats.

Field mice are smaller, and they have gray or brown fur with a white underbelly. On the other hand, Norway rats are large and have bristly black fur with long scaly tails. Sighting either of these species on your property means that it’s time to contact Covenant Pest Control, as untreated infestations of rodents lead to serious health problems and property damage.

Are rodents dangerous?

Rodents are one of the most unhygienic pests you can encounter, and all rodents are known for carrying dangerous diseases. Illnesses that rodents spread around when they invade your property include hantavirus, leptospirosis, tularemia, and salmonellosis, among many others.

Rodents have constantly growing front teeth that they use to gnaw on items, and they must gnaw to keep their teeth in shape. Over time, this creates serious damage to your property and may result in utility or electric lines being dangerously damaged.

Additionally, rodents carry parasitic pests in their fur such as fleas, ticks, and mites, which can carry their own health risks. The more rodents on your property, the higher your chance of picking up a secondary infestation.

Why do I have a rodent problem?

Rodents are opportunistic pests and have evolved alongside humans. They typically invade properties that provide easy access to food, water, and shelter. Around your property, left-out pet food, unguarded trash, moisture issues, and piles of clutter or debris all contribute to higher chances of a rodent infestation.

Where will I find rodents?

Rodents like to hide in areas that are more secluded and dark; they create their nests there and bring back scavenged food. Around interior areas, rodents are likely to hide at the backs of cabinets and pantries, in the space between walls, and in cluttered areas like basements and attics. Outside, rodents will be found near trash cans, compost piles, and piles of debris or wood.
