Rodents

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:

  • Attics
  • Food storage
  • Garages
  • Yards
  • Kitchens
  • 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.
