The Rascally Rodent
Have you ever wondered how rodents get into your house? If so, the answer might surprise you. If you want to get an idea, grab a marker and head outside. Take a trip around the outside of your home and look for holes and gaps. If the marker fits inside of the space, a mouse can too. That right, a mouse can fit through a hole the size of a nickel. That means if the space under your door is that size, you could be sharing your lunch with a mouse. Rats cannot fit through a hole that size, but they can fit through a hole that is the size of a quarter. Squirrels and roof rats are excellent climbers. If you have trees or large bushes next to your home, they can gain access to your roof. If you roof, or the eaves, have holes then they can easily infest your attic. Once inside, they find a nice place to live and then they do everything they can to steal your food.
The Damage Done by Rodents
Voles can girdle young trees and kill the vegetation in your yard. Gophers can easily make your grass look like a miniature war zone. Rats and mice love to chew on things. They will gnaw through your sheetrock and cause damage to the wiring in your home. There have been cases where a rodent has caused a catastrophic fire because it caused a short in an electrical wire it chewed through. If you have an infestation of rodents in your home or yard, they could both be in danger of being damaged. Rodents aren’t satisfied with that type of damage, definitely not. They are out to ruin your food. Rodents continuously urinate and defecate. They can easily chew into a box of cereal and spoil the contents. Rodents are also out to ruin your health. Simply put, rodents transmit diseases. They are vectors for bacteria, viruses, pathogens, and parasites. Many of the diseases can be life-threatening. Living with rodents inside of your home is definitely bad for your health.
