What Are Rodents?

Rodents are mammals that fall into the order of Rodentia. Experts best characterize them by their front incisor teeth that never stop growing. These teeth are why beavers can chew down trees and why rats and mice can chew holes through walls inside homes.

Speaking of rats and mice, these two common types of rodents are what people most often find inside local homes. They are much more common as they are able to eat just about anything and have no trouble navigating homes with their small frames and dexterous limbs. If you think your home has a rodent infestation, ask our team to come out and take a look.

How Dangerous Is It To Have Rodents On My Property?

Having a rodent on your property is not always directly threatening to your health. These pests become dangerous when they consume or crawl through nasty things like fecal droppings, rotting meat, or decaying vegetation. Doing this opens up the possibility of these furry pests spreading dangerous diseases.

You might get sick from a rodent’s bite or from its droppings, urine, or the pests it carries inside its fur. The best way to avoid getting sick is to stop different kinds of rodents from getting into your home.
