It’s no secret that rodents are annoying and unsightly creatures. They can wreak havoc on your business and even cost you to lose out on sales or lose licenses and privileges to operate. So just what types of rodents should you keep an eye out for?

Mice
These rodents can enter through small spaces then chew or gnaw away at the space to make more room to get in. Mice are active throughout the year and will search for a warm home as temperatures drop. They hide in dark environments. From age six weeks and beyond, female mice are capable of having a litter of up to eight young. Mice can chew on electrical wires. Their droppings can distribute diseases and contaminate foods.

Rats
They’ll chew or gnaw their way in and continue to gnaw away on valuable pieces of equipment or furniture. They tend to burrow near water sources such as leaky pipes. They reproduce quickly. Rats are carriers of fleas and ticks, and their droppings can contain organisms that cause diseases.
