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.
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.
What to Expect from Integrity:
QP TRAINED INSPECTIONS
Structure issues occasionally reduce the effectiveness of treatments.
Hidden construction problems such as stucco extending below grade, insulation beneath the slab or below grade, embedded sills or grade stakes, debris under a dirt-filled porch, or a false foundation wall.
We know Rodents' Abilities
Did you know that rodents can:
- Gain entrance through 1/2 inch holes
- Climb horizontal and vertical wires
- Climb inside of vertical pipes 1 1/2 to 4 inches in diameter
- Climb outside of vertical pipes and conduits up to 3 inches (7.62 cm) in diameter
- Climb outside of vertical pipes of any size if the pipe is within 3 inches of the wall or other support
- Crawl horizontally on any pipe or conduit
jump vertically as much as 36 inches from a flat surface
Jump horizontally 48 inches (1.22 meters) on a flat surface
- Jump horizontally at least 8 feet (2.44 meters) (2.44 m) from an elevation of 15 feet (4.57 meters)
Burrow down vertically to a depth of 4 feet (1.22 meters) in the soil
- Drop 50 feet (15.24 m) without serious injury
- Climb bricks or other rough exterior walls offering footholds
- Climb vines, shrubs, or trees or travel along telephone or power lines to gain access to upper stories of buildings
- Reach as much as 13 inches (33.02 cm) along smooth vertical walls
- Swim as far as a 1/2 mile in open water and tread water for up to three days; travel in sewer lines even against substantial current and dive through water plumbing traps
- Gnaw through a variety of materials, including lead sheeting, cinder block, aluminum sheetings, glass, and improperly cured concrete.
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.

House mice are so small they can readily invade structures.
They resemble rats but are smaller. Like rats, they have a long, naked tail.
House mice can most easily be confused with juvenile Norway rats or deer mice.
Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome.
This is a viral disease that is transmitted by the rice rat. This disease is spread in one of three ways:
- inhaling dust that is contaminated with rat urine or droppings
- direct contact with rat feces or urine
- due to the bite of the rat (infrequently)
This is a bacterial disease that can be transmitted by coming into contact with infected water by swimming, wading, or kayaking or by contaminated drinking water.
Individuals may be at increased risk of Leptospirosis infections if they work outdoors or with animals.
This disease may be transmitted through a bite, scratch, or contact with a dead rat.
Consuming food or water that is contaminated by rat feces bacteria can cause this disease.
This disease is carried by rats and transmitted by fleas in the process of taking a blood meal.
Domestic rats are the most common reservoir of plague.
Colorado Tick Fever.
This is a viral disease that is transmitted by the bite of a tick that has taken a blood meal from a bushy-tailed woodrat.
This disease is a parasite that is transferred to a person by the bite of an infected sandfly that has fed on a wild woodrat.
