Rodents: The Four-Legged Pantry Pest
Rodents are one of the most common types of pests to find in the home. They are large and sometimes noisy, and they leave messes wherever they eat, travel or build their nests. Not only that, they often carry disease, damage personal property and raid pantry products. They’re big enough to be noticeable but small enough to fit through tiny holes, cracks, and other entry points to access food and shelter. Mice are even known to hide out in walls.
Mice and rats are the primary types of rodents that infest homes. Their hair or fur is often dirty and greasy, which can leave marks that indicate their presence. They have sharp teeth and claws good for gnawing on and through various substances, and they can give birth to many young multiple times in a short period. These factors and more make them nuisances that are difficult to eradicate.
