There is a danger of contracting various diseases through contact with their fecal matter, nesting areas, or food. Rodents can be carriers of various diseases and bacteria. Some of the most common diseases mentioned by the CDC include Hantavirus, LCM (Lymphocytic Chorio-Meningitis), Leptospirosis, Plague, and various others.

Rodent issues are more prevalent in areas where construction may be older and sanitation may not be ideal, although rats and mice can infest any structure such as basements, crawl spaces, garages, and sheds. In your home, rats and mice most commonly live in the roof, attic, and wall spaces.

Some of the first signs you have rodents in your home are droppings in areas they may be nesting or feeding, scraping, gnaw holes, or squealing sounds. Rodent urine has a distinctive musky, ammonia smell that can be strong in enclosed areas. Pets may appear to be extremely alert, bark or paw at spaces.

Mice enter homes through cracks and holes found in walls, floors, and foundations. Rodents can squeeze into openings in a home as small as ¼ inch, rats can press through spaces as small as an ½ an inch. Mice may enter the home through gaps in windows, ceilings, sewer lines, and drainage pipes like sink and tub drains if not sealed properly.

Rats are scavengers by nature, some of their favorite foods include vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, meats, insects, invertebrates, and other inorganic matter. Food, garbage, and compost provide a major source of food and harborage for rodent populations.

Always use safety precautions and ventilation when cleaning up after rat and mice infestations, it’s important to avoid stirring up the area. Wear rubber gloves, and use a disinfectant or bleach solution to spray area, traps, and urine or droppings. Remove urine and fecal droppings with a paper towel or cloth then tightly seal the waste and dispose of it.

Rats and mice can reproduce year-round in the right environment. The average house mouse can produce up to 8 litters per year with an average litter size of 4 to 7. Norway and Roof Rats can reproduce up to 10 times throughout the year with an average litter size of 6 to 12.
