Information About Rodents

New Jersey tends to see a wide variety of rodents of multiple species. Rodent problems in homes and businesses can lead to serious health risks, making the extermination of them even more timely. Not properly assessing and getting rid of rodent problems allows the opportunity for rodents to reproduce and deepen their presence in an area.


Many rodents begin their infestation through boats travelling internationally, spreading into adaptable environments that can act as a home for them. These opportunistic creatures enter into new territories and begin burrowing or building their new home.


Depending on the species of rodent, you can find rats and mice burrowing or grouping in a variety of secluded places. Some species of rats live in sewers, tree tops, and have adapted to live amongst rooftops of houses and buildings.


Mice tend to live in underground burrows, connected by multiple inter-connected tunnels, or in small, quiet areas close to food and safety.


Mice are often found in garages, attics, and in the structures of walls, making them hazards for all kinds of spaces.

Where Rodents Live

The Harm Rodents Cause

Rodents often carry food-born and health related hazards indoors and can spread them throughout a building. Some of the health risks that rodents pose are Lyme disease, toxoplasmosis, fecal contamination, salmonella pathogens, lice, fleas, rat bites and ticks. Rodents spread contagious diseases and contaminations easily through the close proximity they live in with humans.


Along with health risks, rodents also cause structural damage to buildings and homes. They also damage crops and stored food. Rodents gnaw and chew on most things they can that might provide benefit when building their nest, leaving property damaged in some way more times than not. Using preventive measures and blocking any passageway of rodents coming into your home or business is important in keeping health risks and property damage out of the picture!

Identifying Rodents

Rodent control in New Jersey starts with identifying what rodent you’re dealing with. Rodent problems in New Jersey and the rest of the country generally consist of similar species of rodents.


The most common species of rodent is the Norway rat. Often living in large groups nearby people, these rodents move underground in a series of interconnected tunnels and tend to carry harmful diseases, parasites, and fleas. Norway rats are most commonly referred to by their color and where it lives, such as a grey rat, sewer rat, water rat, etc.


Properly named, the most common indoor rodent is called the House mouse. Only 1.5-2 inches long, these short haired mice live indoors nearby sources of food and water. House mice tend to dribble urine and feces as they move, contaminating food and surfaces with dangerous pathogens. These mice also carry lice, ticks, and mites inside, spreading the possibility of infection.


Another common rodent is the Roof rat. These are the rats you see climbing on rooftops, in gutters, and throughout tree tops. Rummagers of garbage, the roof rat poses as a hazard of contaminating food and spreading fleas, mites, and diseases.


The White Footed mouse is another smaller rodent that seeks out food in quieter places like attics and garage spaces. These mice are especially dangerous because they often carry ticks that have Lyme disease.
