When you need rodent removal in your home or business it can help to be informed about what you’re encountering. A rodent is a gnawing mammal of an order (Rodentia) that includes mice and rats in the Northwest. Rodents have an amazing ability to adapt themselves to different environments.
There are two different types of rats that commonly require rodent removal. One is the Norway rat, and the other is a roof rat. They are able to both coexist in the same structure but most of the time, the Norway rat is a little bit more aggressive and even aggressive towards roof rats. That is considered the reason that roof rats are typically forced up high in structures if there other rats present.
Rodents all gnaw at things in order to wear down their front teeth. Their teeth continue to grow all the time. If they don’t wear them down play chewing on things, their teeth will grow around in a circle and kill them. There is also the possibility that with their teeth too long, they will be unable to eat and then die of starvation as well.
Benefits of Rodent Removal
Quite often rodents are one of the reasons that homes and vehicles end up having things that don’t work in them occasionally because the rodents will chew on wiring and or pipes. Many times if they chew into a 110 volt wire in a structure, the rodent will be killed but the lights also won’t work, or some other utility. On one occasion some folks came home to find their whole lower-level brand-new hardwood floor completely flooded. Rats had chewed into the dishwasher supply line while they were gone on vacation, and caused a water leak. Professional Pest Control of Western Washington could have prevented this tragedy.
Droppings and scratching sounds in the structure during the night can indicate a rodent issue, it is very important to get rodents removed right away. Rodents are known to carry disease.
