Without any question, many of us classify rodents as pests. In fact, Animal Wildlife Trappers would get calls from homeowners asking for rodent removal assistance quite frequently. Rightfully so, it is necessary for you to seek help from professionals when you spot a rodent in your yard. These critters, large or small, can be very dangerous. They may damage property, infect you with viruses, and can be quite huge nuisances.
Rodents are found almost everywhere in the world with the exception of Antarctica. They’re extremely common in Central Florida because of the warm weather we have all year round. This kind of climate is very welcoming to these mammals falling under the Rodentia order. Contrary to what some believe, rodents are not just rats and mice. They are characterized as animals that have a pair of incisors in each of their lower and upper jaws. These incisors continually grow. And so rodents would chew and chew to keep their teeth short and sharpened. This chewing habit is the reason behind them damaging wires, furniture, and other features of your home.
As mentioned, they’re not just rats and mice. Other animals falling under the Rodentia order are squirrels, beavers, hamsters, gerbils, porcupines, and chipmunks among many others. Animal Wildlife Trappers offers removal of all kinds of rodents in the Orlando area and surrounding communities.
Aside from damaging your property, rodents bring bigger problems with them too. They carry mites, diseases, viruses, and they can easily contaminate water and food you keep in your home. Their feces and urine can be extremely dangerous to humans and pets.
Diseases can be directly and indirectly transmitted from rodents. Some of which include:
- Lassa fever
- Lymphocytic Chorio-Meningitis (LCM)
- Rat Bite Fever
- Lyme Disease
- Relapsing Fever
- West Nile Virus
