Types of Rodents
Mice – A mouse is recognizable for its long, nearly hairless tail, round ears and pointed snout. Common house mice are very adaptable to new surroundings and can live and reproduce in countless areas of your home or business. Mice are both destructive and a health risk, as they are known to carry various bacteria and disease.
Mice are good at climbing, jumping and swimming and they will eat just about anything a human will eat. Their constant nibbling on different food items, baseboards and other items causes damage to your home and wastes food.
Mouse droppings are another sign that you have mice in the house. They are shaped like a grain of rice and are typically black. You may see them in your garage, basement, in cupboards, behind furniture or close to walls. Call for a Free Quote if you’ve seen any sign of mice.

They prefer to be left alone to scavenge for food in homes and buildings. Brown rats like to burrow and will often make large holes around the foundation of your home.
Rat dropping are larger than mouse droppings and are brown or black and shaped like a jelly bean.
