Mice and rats tend to take up residence just about anywhere, and can be very difficult to dislodge once they're in. can enter a home or business through a hole as small as a quarter inch and start chewing on insulation, wood, and even electrical and plumbing conduits. They commonly enter through cracks in the foundation, doors which are left open, roof vents and fans, places where the roof is damaged or they can chew through, and tiny cracks and crevices in ventilation systems.

3 Greatest Threats by Rodents

Hazards of Rodents:

  • Disease: Rodents eliminate waste in the form of urine and droppings'. These waste products often carry diseases such as salmonella and hantavirus. These contaminants can also spread disease by airborne transmission.
  • Irregular or uneven holes in the roof, walls, or floors
  • Spread of Pests and Vectors: Rodent bites can themselves be dangerous due to the parasites that come in with them, such as fleas and mites. Both carry disease and may trigger allergies in susceptible people, particularly children. These "vectors," as they are known are the primary reason why "kill traps" are ineffective against rodents.
  • Property Damage: Each year, rats cause property damage due to their need to gnaw. Rats enjoy chewing on electrical wires, PVC pipes and HVAC ducts which can be expensive to replace. In some cases, gnawing on electrical wires can pose a house fire threat.
