It’s unanimous that most of us want to prevent rodents, including Roof Rates, Norway Rats, and mice; and other creatures like spiders, snakes and insects out of our homes. Of all these unwanted creatures, rodents are the most destructive and carry the most health risks. Typically, you will find rodents hiding in attics, garages, or basements but they have other hiding places as well. Cramped attics or basements full of storage, and tight, narrow crawl spaces are favorite locations. They may hide in backs of closets, cabinets, inside walls, and even inside empty drawers can be inviting.
Rodents also seek out hiding spaces outside and have a wide variety of habitats in which they can nest. Untended shrubs and overgrown grass provide shelter, as do heaps of firewood, piles of large stones, compost heaps, and simple burrows next to gates, patios, or garbage cans. Rodents are very hardy creatures, and will adapt themselves to survive alongside people when they find nesting materials and food sources available. They don’t mind having us around, but we greatly mind having them around.
