Rodent Facts-Birmingham, MI
  • It is estimated that 50,000 people each year are bitten by rodents in the United States.
  • Rodents can range in size from very small to very large and vary in color, but they all have a long pair of upper and lower incisor teeth that are rootless and never stop growing.
  • Most home invasions by rodents occur in the fall because the seeds and plants on which rodents feed outside become scarce. Rodents are also prevalent in the spring when there is mild weather and after heavy precipitation.
  • Rodents are strong survivors and significant pests because they are highly adaptable and they will eat almost anything.MOUSE
  • Rodents are a strong source of embarrassment and discomfort for people.
  • Rodents can carry diseases like HPS and the Hantavirus, which can target the lungs and cause pulmonary problems. The best prevention is to ensure that people don’t come into contact with rodents or their droppings.
  • Feces are one of the main threats posed by rats and mice because they are a source of disease.
  • Rats can produce about 40-50 faecal pellets and deposit about 14 mm of urine per day.
  • Mice produce 40-100 faecal pellets and deposit hundreds of drops of urine each day.
