As social creatures, both rats and mice are almost never alone when they invade a home. Once inside a home they breed extremely quickly and a small rodent problem quickly becomes a big rodent problem. Rodents look for a place that is warm, has water, and has food. Houses are perfect places for them to live.
An adult mouse is small and slender and about 2 to 4 inches long, including its tail. It has large ears, a pointed nose and small eyes. The fur color varies, but mice are usually a light grey or brown. Mice are very good climbers, swimmers, and jumpers. They can run at speeds of 8 miles per hour sometimes. Even with so much speed, mice seldom travel further than 50 feet from their homes. Mice in a city environment may spend their entire life in buildings.
Mice will make their nest from any material they can find, this mostly consists of paper products or insulation. Mice make their nests in many different places including walls, ceiling voids, storage boxes, drawers, under major appliances, or within the upholstery of furniture. Outside nests are usually found in debris or ground burrows.
Mice like to eat a lot throughout the day so when you first find them it will likely be in your kitchen or pantry. Many times in kitchens you will find damage on the corners of boxes. To keep their teeth from growing too long, mice will chew on anything that they can find be it your furniture, clothes, or cords.
Gophers are another rodent that can be very hard to get rid of. Gophers can be anywhere from 5 to 14 inches long. They have fur-lined pouches outside of the mouth, and one on each side of the face. These pockets are used for carrying food. They are active year-round, but are the most visibly active in the spring and fall when the soil is easiest to dig through.
Gophers will did all throughout your yard and cause lots of damage that is hard to reverse. Their underground burrows can be very large, up to several feet deep, and several hundred feet in length. As gophers dig burrows, they push the soil to the surface every so often, this causes a mound of dirt.
Highly Skilled Exterminator
Rats and mice can be a destructive pest in your house because they chew everything in sight. It is not uncommon to find chewed electrical cords and food packaging when you have rodents in your home. They will chew through practically anything when trying to get to food. Rodents don’t have to chew a very large hole to get to places; mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half-dollar.
Rodents almost always gain entry to a home via a small hole or gap that has gone unnoticed. For this reason, it is important to find any gap or holes that might allow them entry and seal it off. This is a service that Denton Pest Control can perform for you so that you never get rodents in your home again..
