Rodent control is a serious issue in Memphis. Our city is home to all kinds of critters. If you have rats or mice in your home, don’t hesitate to call Rosie’s Pest Control. Our experts are trained to deal with any rodent problem and can help you get rid of them once and for all.
Rodents are far from harmless. They carry disease and are often destructive and dangerous to your home or office. They contaminate food, damage property, and spread diseases like salmonella and hantavirus. They also leave droppings wherever they go and are known to gnaw through electrical wiring, causing fires. These pests need to be dealt with quickly before they cause significant damage to your home or business.
Our solution is simple: we use humane traps that catch rodents without harming them so we can release them back into the wild once they’ve been caught. We’ll also perform regular inspections on your property to ensure there are no other rodent problems that need addressing before they become a larger issue later down the road; this could include fixing damaged walls or sealing holes in your garage ceiling (if possible).
Rodents are one of the most common pests found in Memphis area homes and businesses. They are a fast breeding type of pest. Rodents generally prefer to live in areas with plenty of food and shelter. Rodents are omnivorous, which means they eat both plants and animals. They will eat anything they can find, including pet food, garbage, and even other rodents!
The most common rodents found in homes include mice and rats. Other species include squirrels, gophers, voles and beavers. These animals are very adaptive to their environment and will often create nests under the floorboards of your home or commercial building. They may burrow through walls or use pipes as tunnels to get around inside your structure without being seen by humans or cats alike!
Rodent droppings contain bacteria that can be harmful if ingested by humans or pets alike over time – especially if you have young children who crawl around on dirty floors where these droppings may have accumulated over time (i.e.: play rooms).
TYPES OF RODENTS FREQUENTLY ENCOUNTERED IN MEMPHIS AREA
Gophers – are small rodents that live in burrows underground. They have no teeth and use their front paws to dig and push food into their mouths. There are many different types of gophers, but the most common type of gopher found in Memphis is the plains pocket gopher.
There are several different types of gophers common to the area. The first type of gopher is called a plains pocket gopher. This type of gopher lives in burrows that are dug one foot below ground level, and they typically eat grasses, roots and bulbs of plants. The second type of gopher is called an eastern mole. This type of gopher lives underground in tunnels where they eat roots, insects and worms. A third type of gopher is called a dusky-footed woodrat or pack rat; this type of animal lives underground in tunnels or buildings where they eat seeds from pine cones as well as other nuts and berries.
Mice – are rodents that live in urban areas, including Memphis. There are three main types of mice: house mice, field mice, and deer mice.
House mice are small, brown rodents with large ears and eyes. They can breed quickly, so their numbers can grow quickly if left unchecked. If you have a large population of house mice in your home it is best to contact a professional exterminator as soon as possible so they do not cause damage to your property or spread disease to other animals or humans.
Field mice are larger than house mice but smaller than deer mice. They have long tails and white bellies with brown backs and fur on their ears and face. Field mice eat seeds from plants like corn or wheat and can be found in fields where these crops grow during the fall months when it becomes cold outside. They will also eat insects or grubs they find while digging through the soil in search of food sources within their habitat range.
Mice love to live in warm, dry sheltered areas. Such as the many homes, offices and warehouse located in and around the greater Memphis area. The homes in Memphis tend to be built close together, which is a problem. When your neighbor has a mice problem, that may soon become a problem for you as well.
Moles – are small, dark brown or black growths that appear in the skin. Moles are usually round or oval and can have different shapes, sizes and colors. They are generally slightly raised from the skin and may have smooth or rough edges.
There are 3 main types of moles: common moles, atypical moles, and dysplastic nevi. Common moles are usually small, brownish and flat. Atypical moles tend to be larger than common moles, with irregular borders and a larger diameter than other moles on your body. Dysplastic nevi are large nevi that start out as common or atypical moles, but over time grow larger than other normal-sized moles. They also often grow in a certain direction (downward) into deeper layers of the skin called dermis and subcutaneous fat.
Rats – are a common pest in Memphis, TN. They are a rodent that generally live in burrows, sewers, and other places people don’t like to be. There are many different types of rats, but they all have certain traits in common.
Rats have long bodies with a short tail. They also have small front feet and large hind feet that allow them to run quickly. Rats have pointed snouts, large incisors that make up most of the jaw, small ears, and long whiskers on their faces that help them feel their way around in darkness. Their fur is usually brownish-gray or black with white or gray patches on their bellies and tails.
There are many different types of rats that vary based on their size, location (urban or rural), environment (below ground versus above ground), diet, behavior patterns and more! Rats carry diseases such as salmonella which they spread through their droppings when they urinate on surfaces where people touch them (like countertops inside kitchens). This can cause infections in humans who come into contact with these contaminated surfaces such as through touching their hands after washing dishes without first washing their hands thoroughly with soap first
The most common rats found in Memphis include: the black rat, the brown rat, and the roof rat. The black rat is the most common type of rat in the United States. It has a long tail and black fur with a white belly. It is usually found in sewers and basements. The brown rat has grayish-brown fur and a long, naked tail. It is commonly found near farms and parks. The roof rat has coarse reddish-brown fur, a short tail, and large ears that stick out from its head. It lives on roofs, trees, and other high surfaces in cities or suburban areas.
Squirrels – are small rodents that belong to the family Sciuridae. They have large bushy tails, sharp teeth and claws for climbing trees, and round ears. Squirrels are omnivores, meaning that they eat both plants and animals. They also have a very keen sense of smell, which helps them find food.
There are several different types of squirrels in Memphis Tennessee including: Gray squirrels (also called tree squirrels), red squirrels (also called flying squirrels), ground squirrels and chipmunks. The gray squirrel is the most common type of squirrel in Memphis Tennessee.
Squirrels are some of the most destructive rodents in the Memphis area. They like to chew, on everything. Including your building, soffets and roof. Their ultimate aim is to gain access to the home or building. That home of office provides them with shelter from predators, a dry warm place to live and breed.
