Rodents can be one of the most damaging and potentially dangerous pests. It doesn’t take much of an opening for a rodent to find its way into a home or business. Unnoticed, a rodent problem can turn into a large infestion in a very short period of time. A few types of common rodents and their pictures and information are listed in our library. Take a look!
