From tiny field mice to red squirrels, rodents can be a huge problem for any property owner! Whether you have rats chewing through your siding, or squirrels burrowing in your crawl spaces, rodents need to be taken care of immediately. A rodent problem can be more than annoying–it can be dangerous!
Do I have a Rodent Problem?
It can be difficult to diagnose a rodent infestation, especially if you’re the owner of a large building. Here are some general indications that you do, in fact, have a rodent problem:
- Small droppings
- Piles of shaved wood
- Odd smells coming from vents or behind walls
- Scratching sounds from behind walls or on the roof
- Seeing the rodents, especially during the day
These are solid signs that you need professional rodent control–and fast! There are two main reasons to call a rodent exterminator: health, and damage.

Rodents can Cause Illness
Rodents want two things: food and shelter. They will do anything to get into your property, and if they find food–they’ll never leave! When rodents get into your cabinets, they contaminate food as they leave behind urine and feces. Although that’s gross, it’s not even the worst part: rodents carry diseases and pathogens! Rodents can also cause allergic reactions such as hives or asthma attacks. Because rodents are prolific breeders, your small rat problem can become a giant one in a matter of months.
Calling a Rodent Exterminator Can Minimize Damage
Rodents are classified together because they all share one thing in common: their teeth! A rodent’s sharp incisors never stop growing, so it has to continually gnaw on things to wear down its teeth. A rodent can chew through most anything, including some kinds of metal, most kinds of wood, and even wires, potentially causing short circuits or even fires! If squirrels, rats, or mice manage to get into your building, they will chew holes in your walls, building nests and breeding rapidly.
