Rodents Local, experienced, and dedicated to your safety

What are rodents?

Rodents are mammals that are identified by their large and ever-growing front incisors. Their chisel-like front teeth help them to eat, gather items to build a nest, and defend themselves from each other and predators. Rodents live in large populations worldwide, and most non-flying mammals are rodents.

A select few rodent species have learned how beneficial it is to live close to people. Rodents that South Carolina residents deal with regularly include:

  • Norway rats
  • Roof rats
  • House mice
  • Field mice

Are rodents dangerous?

Thirty-five diseases are known to be spread by rodents, making them a dangerous and unwanted pest to have foraging for food in our yards and kitchens. Rodents spread diseases through their saliva, urine, and feces; their shed fur and excrement trigger allergies and asthma. Rodents are usually covered in disease-spreading parasites like fleas and ticks that they will also introduce onto your property and into your home.

When it comes to rodents, it is important to remember that they don't only spread diseases; their presence leads to destruction. When in our homes, they stop their front teeth from overgrowing by chewing through wires, cables, pipes, drywall, flooring, and more. Rodent infestations can trigger electrical shorts, fires, and mold issues. They will also chew into food packaging, boxes, and through clothing, causing damage and contaminating your family's food.

Why do I have a rodent problem?

Rodents live outside but regularly find their way into our homes and businesses, taking advantage of any secluded area that keeps them hidden. When these critters decide to hide or nest in our yards near our homes, they often end up inside with us, feeding on our food and causing damage.

Food is what typically draws rodents to an area. They have a high metabolism and are on an almost constant search for food. Things found in most South Carolina yards attract rodents by providing them with a food source. Trash cans, compost bins, gardens, and grill areas are examples of common foraging sites.

Where will I find rodents?

Piles of garbage, woodpiles, gardens, and areas next to or under foundations are where we often see signs of rodents in our yards. Roof rats prefer to rest and nest up off of the ground in trees.

When rodents move inside to either escape bad weather or search for food, they like to nest in wall voids near hot water pipes or behind appliances like refrigerators or stoves.

Other nesting spots include the following:

  • Attics
  • Roof eaves
  • Cardboard boxes
  • In or under upholstered furniture
  • The backs of cabinets
  • Cluttered closets
