When we talk about "Rodents" we're typically talking about Mice and Rats. The best rodent control is to rodent proof your home and business. Make sure all openings to your house, like windows and doors, are properly sealed. If there are any holes in walls, floors, or ceilings, make sure they are covered and sealed as well. The same thing goes for pet doors: make sure they are properly sealed when not in use. And while we're on the subject of pets, don't leave pet food out at night. That's like a buffet for these pests.
Placing some steel wool in gaps of electrical conduits or pipes is also another thing you can do. And make sure your house and yard are free of clutter as mice and rats love to nest in messes. That means keeping trash cans covered and sealed too. If you have a stack of firewood, keep it clean and off the ground if possible.
There are a lot of things you can do to help keep your home and office rodent free, but no matter how clean, tidy, and vigilant you may be, there are times when these furry pests get past all of your defences. When that happens it's time to call a professional.

What's the difference between mice and rats?
Rats: There are several types of rats, but the most common in Las Vegas, Mesquite and the surrounding areas are Roof Rats. These pests are 5-10 ounces and 10-14 inches long with large ears, and long tails and are usually grey in color. They like natural foods like seeds, nuts, fruits, and vegetables, so they usually leave near areas of thick vegetation, but will scavenge if needed. They are often found near washes or standing water as they need a steady source of water. Roof rats are nocturnal and forage at night. An average female has 35 babies a year so infestations can grow rapidly if there is enough food and water in the area. They can cause big problems with such large numbers as they can contaminate the soil with feces, urine, and hair. Their nesting and gnawing can cause property damage. They have parasites and are also known to transmit diseases like the plague, salmonella, typhus, hantavirus, and many more.
Mice: There are several types of mice, but the most common in Southern Nevada is probably the house mouse. They are smaller than rats, an adult averages 6 inches long including their tail, weighing 11-22 grams. They are usually in the greyish-brownish and white colors. They have excellent hearing, but poor vision. These little pests are one of the most troublesome rodents around. They can be found anywhere there is food and water available: inside, outside, in open fields, in construction areas, pretty much anywhere. They are great climbers and can get anywhere causing considerable damage to property. You may see one scurry across your kitchen floor or you may find droppings on the ground, on shelves, on top of counters or in drawers. You also may notice shredded paper, etc. that they use for nesting. If you see one (or evidence of one), you better believe there’s more than just that. Mice (and rats) like to travel in groups. Their droppings will spread disease, so be sure to clean it well and get those little critters gone! A female house mouse is ready to mate by the age of two months old, and she can give birth to an average of 6 babies per litter. She can have between 6 and 10 litters a year. So if you start with two mice at your house, by the end of one year, you could theoretically have as many as 31,000 mice. Get rid of those pests quickly!
