What Are Rodents?

Rodents are one of the most common pests in Southern California. There are more than 2,000 rodents species throughout the world but we luckily only deal with a few in So-Cal. Rodents are mammals with two large front incisors that constantly grow, which is why they’re always chewing to keep them from overgrowing.

In Southern California, the most common rodents we see are:

Norway Rats: Norway rats are also known as brown rats and sewer rats. These are found basically anywhere that people live. They are typically found in nests lined with fibrous material and like to live near woodpiles, trash, gardens, and foundations. They’re not good climbers so if they enter your home, you’ll generally find them in the basement or lower floors of your house. They’re grey-brown colored, have a pink hairless tail, and a blunt nose.

Roof Rats: Roof rats are also known as black rats and are smaller in size than Norway rats. They’re great climbers, live in trees, and tend to live in the ceilings, attics, and on roofs. They like the warm weather found in Southern California, have dark grey fur, white bellies, larger ears, a pointed nose, and long hairless tails.

House Mouse: The house mouse is abundant throughout So-Cal. They originated in Central Asia but are found throughout the world. They’re small in size, have a pointed nose, large round ears, and a long hairless tail.

Are Rodents Dangerous?

Rodents can be dangerous for a number of reasons. First, they are known to get into walls and chew through wires which creates fire hazards. Second, they hang out in seedy places and pick up bacteria that they can transfer onto your kitchen surfaces, food, and throughout your home. Lastly, they carry secondary pests like fleas and ticks which can transmit Lyme disease, the plague, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Needless to say, rodents in your home can pose a significant health risk for you and your family so it’s important to hire a pest control company as soon as you see signs.

Why Do I Have Rodents?

Rodents are always searching for food, water, and shelter. With that said, bird feeders, compost bins, garbage, and gardens are common sources of food that can make your property a target for rats and mice. Once rodents find a source of food, they begin searching for areas to nest nearby. This often means that they’re going to try to find a way to get into your home or business. Once they find a way in, they’ll nest in crawl spaces, basements, and attics where they can increase their numbers.
