Mice and rats are the most common pest in the rodent family, and they can quickly become a huge problem for a home or business owner. Mice can reproduce rapidly: just one female mouse can give birth to 8 litters each year with 4 to 7 young per litter.
They can be difficult to keep out of a structure: for instance, a mouse can fit through an opening the size of a dime and a rat can fit through a hole the size of a quarter. These pests are capable of causing damage to your property by chewing through drywall, insulation, wood, and electrical wiring, increasing the potential risk for fires. Rodents also carry parasites in their fur and spread dangerous bacteria and disease.
