Rodent Behavior Insights: Navigating The Habits Of Mice And Rats

The biggest thing to understand about rodents is that they can take over properties in the blink of an eye. They are opportunistic pests and will find their way to any space that offers them food, water, and shelter that protects them from predators and harsh weather conditions. 

Mice and rats are the two most common types of rodents to frequent our homes. They are primarily nocturnal and, therefore, most active overnight while we are sleeping. Rodents staying under our radar is problematic because they multiply quickly. A female mouse can have a new litter of five or more babies every 20 days. Those new babies will be ready to mate in only about four weeks. 

As you can see, just one pregnant female mouse deciding to call your house home can quickly cause a large-scale infestation. The best way to prevent issues with these prolific breeders is to partner with a local pest control professional and schedule regular inspections. 

Health Risks Of Rodent Invasions: Protecting Your Family And Pets

Unfortunately, when rodents find their way to our properties, they don’t just bring themselves. They bring a whole host of diseases, parasites, and bacteria. Coming into contact with rodents or their saliva, urine, or feces can cause you, your family, and your pets to become seriously ill. 

Other problems that common rodents in California cause when they decide to share our homes include:

  • Foul odors

  • Damage to bedding, upholstered furniture, cabinets, boxes, and other personal items

  • Structural damage to wires, drywall, vents, ducts, cables, and pipes

  • Short circuits and fires

  • Water damage

  • Noises

Proactive Rodent Control: Preventing Infestations Before They Begin

We have put together a helpful list of rodent prevention tips to help stop these pests from thinking that your yard or home is a place they belong:

  • Identify small openings in your home’s exterior that can allow rodents to move inside.

  • Clean up your outdoor space. Mice love to hang out in dense, overgrown gardens, grass, and flowerbeds.

  • Remove fallen trees and tree stumps from your property that offer nesting sites. 

  • Avoid providing reliable access to food by keeping lids on trash cans, removing bird feeders, picking up uneaten pet food, and keeping outdoor eating areas free of leftovers.

  • Address and repair leaks and other moisture issues that provide rodents with a water source.
