Whether they climb, nibble, gnaw, or scurry, rodents of any size are a threat to your Florida home or business. And as a state with a warm, humid climate, Florida is home to several rodent species throughout the year. Most rodents are smaller than a house cat, except for the capybara.
Originally native to South America, capybaras are large rodents that have become a recent nuisance in Florida. While capybaras are relatively calm animals, they are still wildlife and may bite when they feel threatened.
Before rodents raid your Florida home or business, reach out to McCall Service. We offer control and prevention services for a wide variety of common Florida rodents, such as:
How dangerous are rodents?
Rodents, such as rats and mice, pose a wide range of risks to Florida homes and businesses alike. While rodents are not considered predators, they often scratch and bite when they feel threatened.
Additionally, rodents are notoriously disease carriers. The smallest scratch or cut from one of these critters could lead to a serious infection. Even being exposed to their waste is a health hazard. Fleas, ticks, and other pests often accompany rodents, bringing along their own set of challenges and health problems.
Rodents also cause property damage by chewing through siding, feeding on stored food, and shredding attic insulation for their nests. Mice and rats also gnaw on electrical cords, which can pose a fire risk.
Where do rodents live in Florida?
Unfortunately, nowhere is safe from mice, rats, or squirrels. Wherever there is food and shelter, you can expect these unpleasant creatures to find their way to it. Common areas that rodents invade include:
- Food storage
- And more
Additionally, rats and mice often scurry into Florida businesses in search of their next meal or home. In addition to posing health and safety hazards, rodents can destroy your hard-earned reputation the moment they cross paths with a customer or health inspector. Before mice or rats strike, contact McCall Service about scheduling a rodent inspection.
What are the signs of a rodent infestation?
Keep an eye out for droppings, gnaw marks, and destroyed food. These are signs of a rodent problem, especially if they become increasingly obvious issues. It’s also a red flag if you hear scurrying, scratching, or other unusual sounds in your walls and attics. Odd pet behavior, such as meowing, whining, or scratching at a specific area of your home, can also indicate a rodent problem.

– CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS –
As a new Florida Resident coming from N.Y., had very little knowledge of maintaining a lawn properly. On my first Appt, with Robert A of McCalls, he explained in detail the problems my lawn was having and what he thought would need to be done to resolve them & restore my lawn to where it should be.
My lawn has not look this good in years. Mr Castaneda has been very knowledgeable about my lawn. All the weeds have disappeared and it looks green again. Would highly recommend his service at any location! Thank you for the outstanding job.
I can't say enough about McCall's. The best in the business! Harley and the other 2 gentleman (sorry I forgot your names) were phenomenal! Even my dog loves them!
I wanted to send a personal email to thank you for Chris's great customer service and the knowledge given on controlling our pest control problem. I feel better in regards to choosing your company and having support who works that ensures the main issue is resolved
Anthony’s service was AWESOME. I thought I paid for one service and ended up getting a follow up service that I had no idea about but was very grateful. I will be recommending McCall to all of our Investor buddies, we have rental properties. Thanks you Anthony for your follow up, professionalism, and great value but most importantly, your service.
Morgan went out of his way to address an issue. Bugs should be terrified when he is around.
Service was thorough and friendly! Khalil did a fantastic job and I am very confident that the job was done right. Very glad I went with this company for regular pest control. Thank you!
Our service tech, Michael Guthrie, was awesome. He was on time, polite, inspected thoroughly, and treated the house exactly like my husband was explained it would be. We haven't seen an ant since. My only wish is that we called McCall sooner!
Gary was professional. He explained everything he did. He did a thorough inspection and then treated. He was courteous and an absolute pleasure. I strongly recommend this company and Gary for all your pest control needs!
