Rodent Control & Removal
Rodents, mice, rats, and squirrels are some of the most common pests that homeowners may encounter. All of these pests have similar characteristics, including a long tail, small eyes, and pointed snout. Mice and rats are generally grey and brown in colour, while squirrels are usually grey, red, or brown. Rodents and squirrels are typically smaller than mice and rats, with a body length of around 3 to 4 inches. All of these pests can cause extensive property damage and should be dealt with quickly and professionally by a pest control expert.
Rodent Damage & Diseases.
Rodent damage is the damage caused by rodents such as mice, rats, and squirrels. These animals can cause damage to homes, businesses, and crops. They can chew through wires, insulation, and walls, causing electrical and structural damage. Rodents can also damage crops by eating or contaminating them, leading to financial losses for farmers.
In addition to physical damage, rodents can also pose health risks to humans and other animals.
Hantavirus is a rare but potentially fatal respiratory illness that is typically spread through contact with infected rodent urine, droppings, or saliva. Symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, and shortness of breath, and it can be fatal in some cases.
Salmonella is a type of bacteria that can cause food poisoning. It is commonly spread through contaminated food and water, but rodents can also carry and transmit the bacteria. Symptoms of Salmonella infection may include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.
Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection that is spread through contact with infected animal urine, including that of rodents. Symptoms can range from mild to severe and may include fever, muscle aches, and vomiting.
To protect yourself from these and other rodent-borne diseases, it is important to take precautions when cleaning up rodent droppings or working in areas where rodents may be present. This includes wearing gloves and a mask, avoiding stirring up dust, and thoroughly washing your hands and any exposed skin after handling rodents or their waste. If you suspect you have been exposed to a rodent-borne disease, seek medical attention promptly and Contact us.

Rodent Life cycle.
The rodent lifecycle varies depending on the species of rodent, but in general, it involves the following stages:
Birth: Rodents typically give birth to litters of young, with the number of offspring varying depending on the species. The young are born hairless and blind, and are dependent on their mothers for food and care.
Growth: As the young rodents grow, they begin to explore their environment and learn to feed themselves. They develop fur and their eyesight improves.
Maturity: Rodents reach sexual maturity at different ages depending on the species, but typically between 2 and 6 months old. At this point, they are able to reproduce and start the cycle again.
Reproduction: Rodents can reproduce quickly, with some species producing litters every few weeks. Females can have multiple litters per year, with the number of offspring varying depending on the species and environmental conditions.
Death: The lifespan of a rodent varies depending on the species, but in general, they have relatively short lifespans. Predators, disease, and other factors can also impact their lifespan.
The lifecycle of rodents can be influenced by a variety of factors, including food availability, environmental conditions, and predation. Some species, such as mice and rats, are well adapted to living in human environments and can thrive in urban areas. As such, controlling their populations can be challenging, and may require a combination of methods such as trapping, exclusion, and sanitation.
Rodent Control Treatments.
There are several rodent control treatments that can be effective in controlling rodent populations. These include:
Traps: There are different types of traps available, such as snap traps, live traps, and glue traps. These can be effective in capturing rodents, but they must be checked regularly to prevent trapped rodents from dying and decomposing, which can create odors and attract other pests.
Baits: Rodent baits are typically made of poisons that are attractive to rodents, and they come in different forms such as pellets, blocks, and liquid. Baits should be placed in areas where rodents are likely to travel, but they must be used with caution as they can be harmful to pets and children if ingested.
Exclusion: Exclusion involves sealing off entry points that rodents use to gain access to a building or property. This can include sealing gaps in walls, floors, and roofs, as well as repairing damaged screens and vents.
Sanitation: Sanitation involves removing sources of food and water that attract rodents, as well as cleaning up areas where they may nest and breed. This can include storing food in sealed containers, keeping trash in tightly sealed bins, and regularly cleaning areas where food is prepared and consumed.
When we implementing rodent control treatments, it is important to take a comprehensive approach that addresses all aspects of the problem, including prevention, sanitation, and exclusion.
