Rodents: Rats and Mice

According to the CDC, Hantaviruses are a group of viruses carried by rodents.

Three common wild rodents live with people – the Norway rat, the roof rat, and the house mouse.

Integrity is a smarter approach to pest control.

While modern construction methods may result in sound structures that may reduce invasion by the Norway rat, it is much more challenging to keep out house mice, which may move in during construction and maintain a population after that.

It is also not uncommon to find deer mice in urban or suburban areas, where they may often live in parkland, wooded areas, brush piles, or firewood.

People hate and fear rats.

Often it is easier to ignore and even deny a rodent problem.

Rodents or their parasites carry many diseases, including plague, salmonellosis, leptospirosis, and typhus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports about five to 10 cases of plague every year.

Rat Extermination: Rodenticide

When high pest rodent populations require removal or structures and commodities are at risk from rodent attack, rodenticides can play a useful management role.

TiP: The importance of sanitation, harborage reduction, and rodent exclusion on pest rodent populations in and around structures is critical to successful rodent exclusion.

Moth Balls For Rodent Control?

MothBalls Are Regulated Pesticides:

You cannot legally use mothballs as repellents for animals like mice, squirrels, raccoons, or snakes.

Many people don’t even realize that mothballs are pesticides. They are pesticides that come in a solid form and then volatilize, slowly changing to a gas.

When you smell mothballs, you are inhaling the insecticide.

Because mothballs are pesticides, they are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency, and the use of the products in any manner, not per the product label, is illegal.

The labels do not allow their use as animal repellents.

Sanitation & Rodent Proofing

Sanitation and rodent proofing is essential to reduce harborage, food, and entry points in structures to reduce rodent problems.

If efforts are taken to patch holes and seal rodents out, those conducting the work must use solid materials to deter rodents as they will readily chew through just about anything.

Salmonellosis.

Consuming food or water that is contaminated by rat feces bacteria can cause this disease.
