Rodent Identification Guide Across the Mid West and East Coast

What Are Rodents?

Rodents are prolific problematic pests that make their way into our homes and businesses and quickly take them over. While rodents are shy by nature, they aren't shy about taking advantage of the easy access to food and shelter our yards and homes provide.

A type of mammal, rodents are set apart from other animals because of their front incisors that constantly grow throughout their lives. In order to stop them from overgrowing, rodents gnaw on any object they come across. In our homes, this habit makes rodents very destructive. Wires, pipes, drywall, flooring, siding, and other structural elements are easy targets for a rodent's sharp front incisors.

Two of the most common types of rodents that people deal with regularly are the small mouse and the larger rat. The most common in our area include:

  • Roof rats
  • Norway rats
  • Mice

Where Will I Find Rodents?

Rodents live outside all around us; whether your home or business is in the city, suburbs, or country, it is susceptible to invading rodents. Rodents are nocturnal animals and stay hidden and out of sight during the day. These pests are active year-round and can find their way into our structures any time they are looking to escape harsh weather or search for food.

Inside, rodents nest in various locations with the most desirable real estate being near food sources. Spaces behind walls, under floors, in attics, and basements are a few of a rodent's favorite places to nest. Other nesting spots include behind large appliances, inside of cabinets, or in closets or storage boxes.
