How to get rid of this?.To get rid of pest problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.
The word rodent means to “to gnaw”. Rat and mouse are rodents. Rodents are warm-blooded mammals that, like humans, can be found throughout the world. They have oversized front teeth for gnawing and check teeth, which are adapted for chewing. Rodents chew on a variety of items available to them and cause great damage in and around homes.
Through the ages, rodents have been the cause of some tremendous plagues and diseases. Today, due to increased sanitation and effective rodent and insect control programs, the threat of disease from rodents is not as critical.
Rodents tend to be rapid breeders. Some species breed year-round, and populations are maintained through constant reproduction. Because of the rodents’ body plan, they are capable of squeezing through spaces that appear to be much too small for them. All such holes should be sealed to prevent entry and reentry of rodents. A pest control professional should be contacted for assistance.
Rats and mice are both extremely destructive within agricultural communities. A number of species feed on seeds and grains. The feces and urine of some rodents may contaminate surfaces with which they come into contact.
Rats tend to eat most of their food at one time, where mice will nibble a little at a time.Rats tend to be cautious and mice are more curious.Both of these rodents are able to squeeze through extremely small openings; 1/4 inch for mice and 1/2 inch for rats.Rodents can be found not only in our homes, but supermarkets, restaurants, warehouses, food processing facilities, livestock facilities, and farm fields.
Instincts: Rats are instinctively wary of things new to their environment, including rat control measures such as traps and bait, and colonize in attics, burrows, under concrete and porches, in wall voids and other hard-to-reach places.
Disease: Rats can harbor and transmit a number of serious diseases. They can also introduce disease-carrying parasites such as fleas and ticks into your home.
Access: They invade your home seeking food, water and warmth.
Contamination: Each mouse can contaminate much more food than it eats.
PEST CONTROL Prevention methods should be implemented early in order to maintain a rodent-free home. Rodents reproduce rapidly, and small populations become full-blown infestations in very little time.
Keep any possible food sources away from rodents. Small crumbs and garbage are popular sources of infestation, as are dry goods such as grains and cereals. These should be kept in sealed metal or glass containers to prevent contamination. Fruits and vegetables should also be stored properly, and resulting waste should never be left in sinks or on counters. Cardboard objects prove attractive to rodents, as they tend to chew them up for use in their nests.
You will want a complete rodent elimination to occur before the rodents move to another area.
A successful rodent control program includes a combination of baiting and trapping for the highest rate of success.
However, if the rodent population is large, begin with a high quality rodent bait, in order to quickly knock down a population and prevent rapid growth.
We offer traps and mice for both mice control and for rat control programs.

Diseases.Rats and mice cause a massive loss of food worldwide.Besides eating our food, rodents spoil it by contamination with their feces, urine, or fur.
They also cause damage to our buildings by their burrowing and gnawing activity. Rodents will gnaw through many types of materials in order to reach a location including lead sheathing, cinder block, aluminum siding and some concrete.
Rodents are carriers of viral, rickettsial and bacterial diseases. The causative agents could enter our body by four different ways: through the ectoparasites of rat like fleas, ticks and mites by food or water contaminated by rodent excreta through direct contact with rodent excreta by rat bite
It is not advisable to handle any wild rodent. They are equipped with large teeth and are capable of transmitting a variety of bacteria, viruses and diseases through their saliva, feces and urine.
If you locate a rodent within your home, it is best to contact a pest management professional for removal and identification. The presence of one rodent within a home could signal an infestation.
Keep all children and pets away from the rodent. If cornered, the rodent will bite to defend itself.

Using Rodent Baits
When baiting initially, try not to disturb their original habitats or they may run to another area. After baiting has begun, continue with sanitation procedures, food source removal, and harborage removal to ensure additional rodents from nearby areas are not attracted to your location.
Using Rodent Traps
Choosing the right size trap is critical for trapping rodents. Inspect for signs of rat activity or mice activity. If you have rats and select mice traps the traps would be too small (the trapping mechanism would not be sufficient for a rat). If you have mice and choose rat traps, the traps would be too large (not sensitive enough to trigger the trap) for the body weight of a mouse.
Most people that begin a trapping program, do not set out enough traps. Place traps in the area of rodent activity and signs of infestation. If you have mice, place the traps a couple feet apart in the area of activity. If you have rats, place the traps about 15-20 apart.
Consider integrating any rodent control program with exclusion techniques, a general cleanup, and removal of their hiding places.
