Types Of Rodents That Invade Sacramento Homes

Rodents are mammals characterized by their long tails, sharp incisors, and small body size. Three main rodents invade Sacramento's homes: house mice, roof rats, and Norway rats. Each type of rodent has different characteristics, but they all pose a serious threat to your home:

  • House mice are the most common type of rodent in Sacramento. They are small, only about 3/4 of an ounce, and have light brown fur. These small rodents are good climbers and can squeeze through tiny spaces. They typically nest in insulation, wall voids, and cabinets.
  • Roof rats are slightly larger than house mice, weighing about 1 ounce. They have black fur and a long tail. As their name suggests, roof rats are excellent climbers and often nest in attics and trees.
  • Norway rats are the largest type of rodent in Sacramento. They can weigh up to 2 pounds and have brown or gray fur. Norway rats are poor climbers and typically nest in basements, crawl spaces, and yards.

These common rodents can cause serious problems in your home if not controlled. You must call a professional pest management company like Neighborly Pest Management as soon as you suspect you have a rodent problem.

Rodents Can Make You Sick And Damage Property

No one wants to see a rodent in their home. But many people are not aware of the severity of an infestation. Not only are rodents a nuisance, but they can also cause some serious issues when they infest your home:

  • Rodents can spread diseases: They carry a variety of diseases, including hantavirus, salmonellosis, and leptospirosis, which can spread to humans through contact with their urine or droppings. These diseases can cause serious illness, and in some cases, they can even be fatal.
  • Rodents can cause allergies: If you have rodents in your home, you may start to experience allergy symptoms, even if you’ve never had allergies before. These symptoms can include sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes.
  • Rodents can contaminate food: If rodents get into your pantry, they can contaminate food with their urine and droppings causing you and your family to become sick.
  • Rodents can damage property: Mice and rats like to gnaw on things, and they can do much damage to your home if left unchecked. They chew through insulation, drywall, wires, and pipes, leading to costly repairs.
  • Rodents are a nuisance: Their constant scratching and gnawing can be very noisy and leave behind a foul odor.
  • Rodents can be a fire hazard: Their gnawing habits can damage electrical wires, leading to fires. By estimation, rodents cause 25% of fires in commercial buildings each year.

As you can see, don't take a Sacramento rodent infestation in your home lightly. If you have any reason to believe that rodents are in your home, you must immediately call a professional pest control company like Neighborly Pest Management.

Four Simple Rodent Exclusion Tips For Around Your Home

Rodents are always looking for new places to nest. They will not hesitate to move in if they find an opening in your home. In addition to calling a professional pest management company, there are some things you can do to keep rodents out of your Sacramento home. Here are four simple tips:

  • Seal cracks and holes outside your home: Mice and rats can squeeze through small spaces, so it’s vital to seal any cracks or holes on the exterior of your house, including gaps around doors and windows, holes in the foundation, and openings for utilities.
  • Remove food sources: Food attracts rodents, so eliminate any potential food sources from your home, including sealing up open bags of flour or sugar, storing food in airtight containers, and cleaning up crumbs and spills immediately.
  • Eliminate hiding places: Rodents like to nest in dark, secluded areas. To discourage them from nesting on your property, eliminate potential hiding places such as piles of leaves, wood piles, and storage containers.
  • Keep your yard clean: A well-maintained yard is less likely to attract rodents which could then move into your house: this means regularly mowing the lawn, trimming bushes and trees, and removing debris.

Following these simple tips can deter all rodents in Sacramento from entering your home and causing problems. However, if you have a rodent problem, it’s important to call a professional pest management company like Neighborly Pest Management. We will be able to identify the source of the problem and remove the rodents for good. Contact us today for a free quote.
