Rodent Control in Augusta, ME

Eliminating Rats, Squirrels, Mice, & More in Kennebec County

Rodents are a type of mammal, and they are categorized by their set of continuously growing front incisors on both the lower and upper jaws. Most rodents do not grow over two feet in size, but there are two species of rodents (beavers and capybaras) that may grow larger. Common examples of the rodents that may get into your home or business include squirrels, rats, and mice. The color of a rodent’s fur may vary depending on species, but the color range can vary from grays and browns to white and black.

Are Rodents Dangerous?

Rodents can be quite damaging to the structure of your home and may create health concerns for you or your family. Rodents may cause damage to your baseboards, furniture, electrical systems, and piping when they gnaw on these items. Constant chewing by rats, mice, and squirrels has caused house fires, and floods in some cases. Damage to your furniture or the structure of your home may cost you hundreds of dollars to repair. Additionally, rodents may carry parasites, pathogens, and diseases into your home or business that can cause serious health problems. Diseases associated with rodents include Lassa fever, Leptospirosis, Rat-Bite Fever, Salmonella, and several others.

Why Do I Have a Rodent Problem?

Rodents are attracted to food, shelter, and warmth, but food is often the main reason rodents choose to invade properties. Homes with open garbage cans, plenty of spaces to hide, and easily accessible food sources have a high chance of attracting rodents. Rodents also get into homes when they find areas that allow them inside, such as gaps in foundations, cracks in exterior walls, or loose shingling along rooflines.

Where Will I Find Rodents?

Rodents adapt fairly well to most environments they come across, but there are certain types of environments they prefer more than others. Homes with lots of shrubbery, overhanging trees, cluttered lawns, and tall grass provide rodents with areas to hide and ways to gain entry to your home. Once inside, rodents generally prefer to stay out of sight and can be found hiding in cupboards, high shelves, attics, wall spaces, and basements.
