Rodent Identification & Prevention

What are rodents?

Mice and rats are some of the most common unwanted visitors to Georgia homes and businesses. Rodents, such as mice and rats, are small mammals identified by the front incisors in their top and bottom jaws that grow constantly.

Rats and mice look similar to each other, but there are some ways you can tell the two apart; interestingly enough, size is not a good way. Baby rats and adult mice are very similar in size and are often confused with one another. The easiest way to tell the two apart is by their faces, ears, and tails. Mice have a triangular-shaped face, large ears, and long skinny tails covered in a light layer of fur. Rats have a blunter look, small ears (compared to their head size), and thick, scaly tails void of hair.

Many different rodent species can invade our Georgia properties; partnering with a professional is the best way to identify which of the following are in your home or business:

  • Roof rats
  • Norway rats
  • Field mice
  • House mice

Are rodents dangerous?

Rodents are small mammals and typically don't cause any physical threats to people; they try their best to stay out of our way, and so bites or scratches from rodents are rare. But, rodents do pose many other problems for people and our properties. Rodents spread many diseases, including hantavirus and rate-bite fever. They carry on their backs parasites like fleas and ticks that also spread diseases. In addition, a rodent's shed fur and feces can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks.

Where Will I Find Rodents?

Rodents live in a variety of places. Wherever rats or mice choose to nest, the location is usually secluded, hiding them from a predator's view. Outside, rodents hide under fallen trees or inside tree hollows, woodpiles, ground holes, landscaping plants, gardens, roof eaves, and fruit trees.

Our homes, garages, and sheds often act as a home to rodents. Inside, they like to create their nests near foraging sites (usually our kitchens). Basements, attics, rafters, cabinets, spaces behind appliances, and storage boxes are frequent nesting sites for rodents. They also won't hesitate to nest under the hood of cars, lawnmowers, and other small equipment.

    "Cheers to Prestige for their paramount service!"

    Prestige Pest control is a family owned business and we have used their services for a couple years now. They are very thorough and we appreciated that Josh sprayed every corner of our patios. He even asked about problem areas outside.
