call hawx pest control for your mice & rat problems!

Rodents are different from a number of other pest problems. Rodents are larger than most bugs, and they tend to eat a lot more as well. They also carry a number of different viruses and diseases that many insects don’t carry, including some that are particularly dangerous and even deadly. Rodents are also one of the most damaging pests you can have in your home. In fact, only termites tend to do more damage to homes than mice, rats, and squirrels do. And despite the fact that you might work hard and do everything you can to keep them out, rodents always seem to find their way in through some way you simply weren’t aware of. If you have a pesky rat problem or a colony of mice has moved in, look to Hawx Pest Control for a proper removal solution.

Common types of rodents

One way rodents differ from other pests is that there aren’t nearly as many different types or varieties of rodents that we commonly see in homes or businesses. Whereas there are thousands of different types of insects that might be present, there might be only a dozen or so different types of rodents. Here at Hawx Pest Control, we carefully determine what type of rodent problem we’re looking at before taking action, ensuring that our methods target the problem properly and obtain the best possible results.

A few common types of rodents we deal with include:

  • House mice: small mice that generally grow to about seven and a half inches in length at the absolute most. They have lighter brown fur on their underbelly in addition to gray fur on most of their bodies.
  • Norway rats: Contrary to their name, Norway rats are not Norwegian. In fact, they’re far more American than most other types of rats, as they’re the most common type of rat found in the country. They can grow up to 17 inches in length and dense bodies with gray and black hair.
  • Roof rats: Roof rats are generally slightly smaller than Norway rats, and have dark brown to black fur. They generally only grow to about 16 inches in length, and they are superb climbers that often like to enter buildings from upper levels like the roof.

Are rodents dangerous?

Many people don’t realize just how dangerous a rodent infestation can be. In addition to carrying diseases, rodents also tend to damage things in ways you wouldn’t imagine. Rodents often chew on just about everything in sight because their teeth never stop growing. In order to keep them at a reasonable length, rats and mice will chew on everything from structural wood to electrical wires to plumbing lines and everything in between. Rats and mice cause millions of dollars in damage every year, and even a single mouse or rat can cause some seriously expensive damage to your home. To keep them away and prevent them from damaging your home, we recommend keeping your property clean. That means removing the trash when it becomes full of food waste, using your garbage disposal whenever possible, and always making sure your trash is sealed with a tight-fitting lid that prevents odors from escaping.
