When dealing with rodent issues in your house, home or business the act of removing the rat or rodent infestation can be extremely difficult. Pest control companies usually just use poison or rat snap traps, though this is only a temporary solution. Only rat trapping and rat exclusion in conjunction will solve the rat or mouse problem.

Mice are rodents and they can fit into the smallest of crevices. A mouse will enter your home and immediately begin a mouse family. Mice feed from cat food, dog food and human food. There are several diseases that can be spread by mice. Excluding mice and mouse removal is very difficult and should be completed by Professional rodent removal experts.

Rat control and rat removal are a high volume call for most wildlife removal companies and pest control companies alike. They’re many species of rats but the Roof rat (Brown Rat) and Norway rat (also known as sewer rat). These two species found build rat families extremely fast and in most cases you won’t know you even have an issue until it becomes a rat infestation.

The young rodents are born in a nest about 21 to 23 days after conception. At birth they are hairless, and their eyes are closed. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. Between 9 and 14 days, their eyes open, and they begin to explore for food and move about near their nest. In the third week they begin to take solid food. The number of litters depends on the area and varies with nearness to the limit of their climatic range, availability of nutritious food, density of the local rat population, and the age of the rat. Typically, 3 or more litters are produced annually.
