Austin Rodent Control
Rodents are highly adaptable animals that makeup over 40 percent of the mammal class. With more than 2,230 species identified, their ranks are massive, although only three types are considered major pests in the United States. They are the house mouse, the Norway rat, and the roof rat.
These three rodents are identified as major pests because they are commonly found near human dwellings and are most likely to benefit from human structures, food, and waste. Rats and mice pose an issue for humans living within the same vicinity for a number of reasons.
Rodents owe a majority of their survival success to their ability to adapt to different habitats. They are opportunistic food scavengers and will consume most types of food. If a certain food source runs out, they are likely to adapt to a new food source. In addition, they are most active just after sunset and just before sunrise – hours during which most people are asleep. These factors make rats and mice difficult to control.
Rats and mice are also successful breeders. A female rat can reproduce every three weeks and usually gives birth to about six to 10 young at one time. A female mouse reproduces every three to four weeks and usually gives birth to about five or six young, although sometimes up to 12. This means that both rats and mice colonies can grow large quickly, although rats only live for about a year. Mice can live up to two or three years under ideal conditions.
Attempting to control a rat or mouse infestation can be dangerous. The most effective rodent control requires an integrated approach. Rodenticide alone is often not enough. Additionally, rodent control requires rodent proofing, harborage reduction, trapping, and increased attention to sanitation. For the most comprehensive solution in Austin Tx, call Real Green Today.
