Rodents

Rodents are mammals which are characterized by a single pair of unremittingly growing incisors in each of the upper and lower jaw teeth. Mice can squeeze through spaces as small as a dime and rats can fit through holes the size of a quarter. All rodents are potentially able to carry diseases such as hepatitis, hantavirus and many other diseases. Some of the most common ways rodents may enter the home are through small holes on the exterior of the building or home, trees being too close the structure essentially acting as ladders and doors being left open.
