Rodent Problems in Maryland

Here in Maryland we have a desirable climate. But, we humans are not the only ones who want to take advantage of the nice weather. A variety of rodents live in Maryland. Especially as the weather gest cooler, these pests can decide to invade your home. Employing rodent control methods can help keep the little critters at bay, and out of your property. 

The best thing you can do to protect yourself against unwanted visitors is to educate yourself. This article aims to help you learn as much as you can about the common rodents like opossums, squirrels, rats, and mice found in Maryland along with how to get rid of them. The second step will be to call a good professional pest removal service like Barefoot Pest Control—serving MD, VA, and D.C.

Maryland Rodents

There are a variety of rodents found in Maryland, here are a few of the most common. Most are attracted to your property in search for food sources, or a location for their nests.


If you have a rodent in your home, it is probably going to be a mouse. There are a variety of different species of mice to be found in Maryland. These include

  • Eastern harvest mouse
  • Deer mouse
  • White-footed deer mouse
  • House mouse

All four types of mice can let themselves in to your home; although, some are more common than others. Although they look cute, mice can do a lot of damage by chewing on wires and leaving unsanitary droppings around.


Rats, too, are a big nuisance, but they are significantly less cute. In Maryland you can find four different varieties of rat

  • Marsh rice rat
  • Allegheny woodrat
  • Black rat
  • Norway rat

Rats are much larger than mice and are attracted to garage and sewage. Because of this they are often more common in large cities. Baltimore, MD has actually been ranked as one of the top rat-infested cities in the United States. So, your chances of seeing one of these disease-carrying pests in a metropolitan area in Maryland is high.

Squirrels and Chipmunks

No yard would be complete without squirrels and chipmunks. These rodents usually live in the tree and ground outside a house. But, occasionally they find their way inside. In Maryland we have the following problems that we work with when dealing with rodent animal control

  • Eastern Chipmunk
  • Eastern gray squirrel
  • Eastern fox squirrel
  • Delmarva fox squirrel
  • Red squirrel
  • Southern flying squirrel

Chipmunks are far smaller than squirrels, are reddish brown, with a black stripe down the center of their back. Squirrels can be either brown or red and have long bushy tails.

How to Deter These Pests

The best way to deter any of these rodents form your yard and home as a tenant or landlord is to deprive them of the food, water, and shelter they are looking for. You should set traps, remove any sources of standing water, and ensure no crumbs or garage are laying around loose.

If you’ve done everything possible to deter rodents and they still find their way into your house, it is time to call in the professionals. If you live in MD, VA, or D.C. your best bet is Barefoot Pest Control. They service both residences and commercial properties and are known for individualizing their pest control plan to your needs.
