Mice Rats And Rodents Extermination Detroit MI

Detroit residents and businesses report thousands of rodent sightings each year. The most commonly reported rodent sightings in Detroit include the deer mouse and the house mouse. Both rodent species are easily identified, thanks to their unique physical characteristics. For example, the house mouse has a black, pointy nose, round-tipped ears, two tiny black eyes, and a body covered with a thin layer of hair. The house mouse ranges between solid black and light brown, with a gray abdomen.

The deer mouse ranges between light brown and reddish/brown with round tip ears, white underside (abdomen, chest, and neck) and feet, and black eyes. The ears are hairy and slightly larger than those of the house mouse.

Another distinctive difference between the two rodents is their tails. The deer mouse’s tail is slightly longer than the house mouse tail.

What Are The Signs Of A Rodent Infestation?

  • Dark fecal droppings found in feeding and nesting areas
  • Live rodents scurrying about in the kitchen and dining room, where food is prepared and served
  • Teeth marks on non-perishable food packages, walls, floors, furniture, and other structures to make room for nests, gain access to a food supply, and infiltrate homes
  • Mice gnawing and scurrying about to avoid detection are sometimes audible to the human ear

Mouse Droppings

It is wise to learn what mouse droppings look like. Once you know how to identify rodent droppings, you’ll be able to identify a problem quicker. In general, their droppings are between 3 and 6mm. Some argue that rodent droppings are similar to grains of rice. They often have a musty odor.

Reasons You Have Rodents

Are you wondering why you have rats, mice, and rodents? Rodents can enter dwellings through the smallest holes and gaps. In general, they’re going to enter residential dwellings because they can find food and water inside. If the home isn’t clean, they’ll enter the home and consume the food crumbs they find. They can also chew through boxes and eat the food inside.

Primary Rodent Dangers

Rodents are dangerous so you cannot ignore the infestation. Doing so will lead to major issues in the future. Remember that rodents can carry and transmit certain illnesses. For instance, they can spread Hantavirus, Lassa Fever, Plague, Rat-Bite Fever, and more. They’ll contaminate your food by pooping and urinating. If you eat something that they’ve contaminated, the risks are immense. Another thing to note is that they’ll destroy your belongings. They can chew through drywall, baseboards, and other items. They’ll chew through electrical cables too.

  • They contaminate food and make people sick
  • They spread numerous illnesses
  • These pests will damage structures and belongings
  • When they chew through electrical wires, they can cause a house fire

First, you’ll want to use rodent-proofing products to defend your home. Block any small hole because rodents can sneak through them.
