Frequently-Asked Rodent Questions
Rodents are social mammals and are characterized by a single pair of constantly growing incisors in their upper and lower jaws. Unlike our teeth, a rodent’s teeth do not have roots and never stop growing. To keep their teeth from growing into their brains, rodents utilize their powerful incisor teeth to gnaw constantly through insulation, walls, and electrical wiring.
All rodents have a pair of incisor teeth that never stop growing, fur-covered bodies, short legs, and long tails. Rodents use their strong teeth to gnaw through wood, plumbing, sheetrock, soft cement and to defend themselves. Mice and rats are omnivores and will eat just about anything. Any food left out in your office or warehouse, in cubicles, desk drawers, and break areas, is an open invitation to rodents.
The three most common rodent species to infest commercial buildings are house mice, Norway rats, and roof rats. These rodent pests are commensal, which means they live close to humans and are dependent upon the human habitat for food, water, and shelter. Both rats and mice live outdoors but will sneak into buildings in search of food or shelter.
Rodents are exceptional jumpers and can climb rough vertical surfaces and run along pipes, ropes, cables, and electrical wiring in order to gain access to buildings. They can squeeze through small gaps and cracks in walls to gain access. Exterior doors and loading docks are generally the main areas used to bring products into a building and also the area where trash is often stored, making the loading dock attractive to rodents.
Rodents are known for spreading over 35 diseases through their droppings and urine. Diseases including hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV), Tularemia, and Salmonella. These diseases can be spread to employees directly when they handle live or dead rodents, through contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva, and through rodent bites. Additionally, breathing in the dust created by rodent droppings and urine can trigger rhinitis in susceptible individuals.
Rodents can cause major damage to commercial businesses and facilities:
- They can contaminate food sources and spread diseases to employees, customers, and tenants.
- They gnaw on building fixtures and fittings such as electrical wiring, causing short circuits, which can lead to a fire.
- As they forage at night, mice and rats contaminate food and surfaces with dirt, droppings, and urine.
A rodent problem in a commercial building can be destructive. Here are some of the tips to prevent rats and mice:
- Keep the exterior of the building and common areas clear of storage containers and unwanted, overgrown vegetation.
- Make sure dumpsters are always covered when not in use, and located away from the facility and it’s entry points.
- Eliminating access and food sources will help to prevent rodents from entering commercial spaces.
- Facilities that feature break rooms for staff should make sure food is stored properly and the area is cleaned on a daily basis.
Inspection, sanitation, and exclusion are three steps to take when addressing a rodent infestation. Walk the property and check for vulnerable areas, like cracks and gaps under doors, where rodents can gain access. Clean and eliminate any food sources. Door sweeps, caulking, and other products may be installed to seal any holes or gaps that could allow rodents to get inside your building. If you suspect a large infestation, a rodent exterminator is your best bet to controlling rodents in a commercial building environment.
