Rodents are mammals 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 more. Some of the most common ways rodents can enter a home are through tiny holes on the exterior and trees being too close to a structure acting as ladders. They can also enter through doors that are left open. We can assist in setting traps, but all access points must be repaired before we begin work.
