What are rodents?

Having rodents living in or around your home is unpleasant at best, and dangerous at worst. Rodents are part of the order Rodentia which means “to gnaw” and is what these furry creatures are known for. All rodents, no matter the species, have incisors that continuously grow and constantly need to be filed down to remain manageable.

There are about 1,500 rodent species worldwide, most of which are found living outside and away from people. However, many of those rodent species have discovered the benefits of living in close quarters with people near our homes and businesses. Being prolific breeders means once these pests set their sights on a property, they can quickly take it over. Some of the most common species of rodents that we deal with regularly include house mice, field mice, voles, and Norway rats:

Are rodents dangerous?

Rodents are dangerous pests; they pose health risks to people, damage property, and cause various other problems. In homes and other structures, rodents chew through and damage various structures and other items including wires, pipes, drywall, walls, wood trim, flooring, furniture, clothing, appliances, etc.

Other issues rodents present after deciding to nest or forage for food within our home’s walls include:

  • Spreading salmonella, E. coli, rate-bite fever, hantavirus, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, leptospirosis, and many other disease-causing pathogens.
  • Contaminating food and surfaces with their waste and saliva.
  • Introducing fleas, ticks, mites, and other parasites into your yard and home.
  • Causing short circuits, fires, water damage, and mold issues.
  • Invading and damaging cars, lawnmowers, and other equipment stored in sheds and garages.

How Can I Prevent Rodents in the Future?

At White Knight Pest Control, we'll help you prevent problems with rodents using our regular treatments. In conjunction with our comprehensive rodent control services, the following prevention tips will help you keep rodents out of your Texas, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, or Oklahoma home!

  • Eliminate hiding spots: Plant shrubs, bushes, and other landscaping at least two feet from your home. Remove clutter from your yard. Keep storage areas in your home free of clutter. Keep shed and garage doors closed whenever possible. Store items in your home in plastic containers with locking lids, not cardboard boxes. 
  • Eliminate entry points: Seal cracks in the foundation or exterior walls of your home. Place door sweeps on exterior doors and replace worn weather stripping. Use steel wool to seal spaces around wires and pipes leading into your house. Place covers over vents and drains. Repair damaged trim around doors. Stack firewood up off the ground and away from your home. 
  • Eliminate food sources: Keep lids on trash cans and compost bins. Store pet food in metal containers with lids and pick up uneaten pet food every evening. Remove bird feeders from your yard. Don’t feed wild animals. Inside, take out the trash and wash dirty dishes daily. Store leftover food in containers with airtight lids or the refrigerator. Make sure to pull out large appliances from the wall and clean behind and underneath them regularly. Limit eating to certain areas of your home to help reduce crumbs.
