WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RODENTS
Rodents are the largest group of mammals comprising almost a half class of Mammalia’s roughly 4,660 species. Generally speaking, rodents possess rootless incisors which grow constantly. This requires them to continuously gnaw on something to keep their teeth sharp. Now, what makes rodents dangerous is their ability to reproduce at an extremely fast rate. A female mouse, for example, can give birth between 5 to 10 times a year to approximately 5 to 6 babies at a time. That gives you an estimate of 100,000 new mice in a year. Despite this, there are ways to avoid having rodent infestation problems in our households.
WHAT TYPE OF RODENTS ARE USUALLY FOUND IN ATLANTA?
In Atlanta, some of the most common species found in the area are squirrels, flying squirrels, rats, and mice. They are usually found in attics, sewage areas, ceilings, and sometimes even in between walls which can pose a serious threat to you and your family if not addressed immediately.
EARLY DETECTION IS CRUCIAL
Knowing the early signs of rodent infestation in your homes, in your business establishments, and in your office is a must. These signs aid in getting rid of the pest problem quicker and lessens the chances of having damages to your property.
Visible Rodent Droppings
Rodent droppings can be seen especially near food packages, drawers, and cupboards, and under kitchen sinks and other crawl spaces.
Rodents need to keep their incisors sharp. Gnaw marks can usually be seen in the coating of electrical wires.
A foul odor coming from a specific spot in your house may be a sign of infestation. Grab a flashlight and begin examining that area to check if there is an active infestation going on.
If there is an active infestation, you will usually find shredded paper or cardboards with droppings and gnaw marks. These materials are used as breeding nests for these little creatures.
Rodents, specifically black rats, are known for their ability to climb onto ceilings. Scratching noises from above can be a manifestation of an active infestation in your ceilings.
PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES WE CAN DO AT HOME
It is important to take proactive measures to avoid rodent infestation. Here are some rodent control tips which can be done in the comfort of your homes.
Seal exterior entry points
Preventing rodent infestation can be done by simply blocking holes which can serve as entry spots for rodents. Sealing crawl spaces using steel wool will be a great help. Wire mesh in chimneys and drain pipes can also be useful against rodents entering your homes.
Preventing trees and vines from growing too close to your homes
Rodents are known to be able climbers and jumpers. Having something where they can climb near our homes will pose a potential danger from rodent infiltration.
Clean up food and water sources in and near your homes
Keep kitchen waste and other food packages in dry and tight-fitting lids. Cut off all materials inside your homes which may serve as food for rodents. Secure pet food inside hard plastic containers to decrease scent that will attract rodents. If we can cut off their food and water sources, the chance of them surviving will significantly drop.
