Rodent Rundown: Keeping These Dangerous Pests Away From Your Roanoke Property


Rodents are challenging pest infestations to deal with. Rodents are much larger than insects, extremely resourceful, and opportunistic. They are constantly in motion and are always on the hunt for three things: food, water, and shelter. They prefer to live in places close to all three of these things, which makes your home appealing to them. Once rodents find a good place to live, they immediately move in and start reproducing, which is why seeing only one rodent in your home can be a sign of a larger infestation.

Rodent control in Roanoke is critical once rodents make their way into your home, and Star City Pest and Wildlife professionals stand ready to be your go-to resource for pest control of all kinds - including removing rodents. Call us today.

Rodents are opportunistic invaders for Roanoke homes and businesses.

Rodent Behavior Insights: Navigating The Habits Of Mice And Rats

Here are some interesting facts about mice and rats:

  • Rat and mice infestations grow rapidly: Mice and rats boast high reproduction rates. Rats can have up to six litters a year, with up to a dozen offspring in each litter. Mice are just as good, producing up to ten litters of up to six offspring per litter. 
  • They are nocturnal: Both mice and rats prefer to do their bidding in the dark, which helps them avoid predators. Because of this, infestations may take some time to discover, by which time they will be difficult to eliminate.
  • They are opportunistic: Rats and mice eagerly explore their environment for food, water, and shelter and have no qualms about expanding into new opportunities. They will promptly move in if they explore your home and see something they like - and they always do.

Rodent Dangers: Health Risks And Property Damage

Rodent infestations aren’t just aggravating. They can also cause extensive damage and potentially expose you to health risks. Mice and rats love to explore their environment and aren’t shy about where they go. They will explore sewers, garbage, and even dead carcasses as readily as they will explore your home. When in these dirty, filthy areas, rats and mice can get exposed to infectious pathogens like E. coli and salmonella and can track these things into your house when they come inside. They can leave these pathogens on your furniture, floors, counters, and even dinnerware, where you can get exposed to them without directly interacting with rats and mice.

Rodent Prevention Tips: How to Keep Your Property Rodent-Free

The best rodent control starts with rodent prevention. Here are some ways to help minimize your chances of encountering rodents in your Roanoke home:

  • Seal garbage: Exposed garbage in and around your home is one of the biggest attractants for rodents. Seal garbage tightly to avoid drawing rodents onto your property.
  • Seal your house: Sealing your home well eliminates easy ways for rodents to gain access to your home.
  • Clean often: Clean homes are discouraging to rodents, who prefer the opportunities dirty environments provide.
  • Inspect frequently: Rodent infestations are much easier to treat if you catch them early.

These tips can help decrease your chances of dealing with rodents on your property. If they still come, however, contact Star City Pest and Wildlife. We know rodent control.
