Frequently asked questions

What do rodents look like and why are they concerning?
Rodents are warm-blooded mammals that are found throughout the world. Some of the most common invaders in the rodent family are rats, mice, squirrels, chipmunks and voles. Rodents vary greatly in appearance between species, but all rodents have oversized front teeth that are used for chewing. Rodents are tough to control, and their tendency to chew on just about anything can cause immense damage in and around the home. Rodents carry and spread fleas, as well as carry diseases, including Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome which can be fatal.
Where do rodents live?
A rodent’s habitat will depend on its species. ground squirrels dig tunnels and burrows underground. Voles build their burrows in moist, dense grasslands, and tree squirrels live in trees. Chipmunks dig their burrows in a variety of areas, including lawns, forests, woodpiles, and gardens. Voles, squirrels, and chipmunks tend to stay outdoors and can cause damage to yard areas. Typically, the rodents most likely to enter a home or business are rats and mice, although some types of squirrels and chipmunks may enter as well. When rodents do enter a building, they like to live in cluttered areas with lots of places to hide, like attics and basements. They may also live between the layers of walls.
Why do I have a rodent problem?
Different types of rodents are attracted to different things. Voles like to chew on the roots of plants, so they are attracted to areas like gardens and farms. Voles are attracted to fields and large backyards, and chipmunks are attracted to properties that have ideal burrow locations like gardens, lawns, and woodpiles. Most rodents typically only cause damage outside. However, some species may seek shelter in homes and businesses for reasons such as cold weather, lack of food sources, or decreasing natural habitat as a result of construction.
When are rodents active?
Generally, rodents become a problem in homes and businesses during rodent season. This season begins with the arrival of cooler weather, which can be anywhere from August to late October, depending on the state. Rodents spend these months looking for a place to spend the winter, and many types will enter buildings during their search. When warmer temperatures return, usually sometime between March and May, most rodents that wandered inside during the fall will venture back outdoors.
What’s the best way to prevent a rodent infestation?
In order to prevent rodents from entering a home or business, it is important to seal any possible entryways. This means caulking gaps around windows and doors, fixing cracks in foundations, and replacing loose or missing roof shingles. Chimneys and vents should have tight fitting covers. It is a good idea to keep trees and bushes trimmed and away from the immediate exterior of buildings. Limiting clutter in areas like attics and basements can minimize the amount of places rodents can hide. Outside, rodent trapping and baiting can help reduce populations. Using castor oil-based repellents in areas of soil will drive away voles, and some other rodents. Rodents can cause a lot of damage both inside and outside, so if you see any signs of rodents on your property call control professionals such as EXCEL Termite and Pest Control today.
