Rodents are small, warm-blooded mammals that can be found throughout Wisconsin. They have sharp front teeth for gnawing and are capable of squeezing themselves into the tiniest of holes. The two most common rodents to find in a property are mice and rats. Rodent species come in various shapes and sizes, but most will have large front incisors, rounded ears, and a scaly tail.
Rodents are in your home looking for sustenance. They are always on the hunt for food, water, and shelter. Mice and rats will enter buildings through cracks and holes around the foundation or utility outlets. Bird feeders, gardens, compost piles, and unsecured trash cans will attract rodents to your property. Rodents are most problematic in late autumn and winter when looking for shelter to overwinter. Once inside, they will live in wall voids, crawl spaces, cabinets, and attics.
Mice and rats are well-known for their very high reproduction rate. A female can produce dozens of offspring in a year! If not controlled immediately, a small problem can soon turn into a full-blow rodent infestation.
Rodents are filthy pests that feed and live in unsanitary areas like sewers and garbage. They can contaminate food, food preparation surfaces, and utensils, which may cause serious allergic reactions or illnesses in some people.
Mice chew wires which can cause potential electrical fires. They also damage insulation, walls, and support beams.
