There are several different species of rats found in California. However, the most common ones are Norway rats, roof rats, and kangaroo rats. Let’s talk about each species in a little bit more detail.
Norway rats are among the two most common rat species found in California. They are usually mottled brown, with tails that are shorter than the length of their body and head combined. Norway rats are social animals that build shelters close to one another. So, if there’s one burrow, then there are likely several others in the vicinity. All Norway rat burrows have once entrance hole and a minimum of one bolt-hole (emergency exit) which is often hidden. Norway rats tend to make their nests in fields, farmland, and inside structures. They are nocturnal and breed very quickly — Norway rats are known to have upwards of six litters of rat pups every year — which makes it very difficult to eliminate an infestation.
Signs of Norway rat infestations include visible animals, droppings, and nesting materials. You may also notice food stashes and grease trails around nesting locations.
Now that you know a little bit about Norway rats, what can you do to get rid of them? Well, if you notice a Norway rat infestation, then there are two things that you can do. One, contact Millennium Termite & Pest’s team of Sacramento rat exterminators. Two, take preventative measure to help reduce the chances of an infestation coming back.
To prevent a Norway rat infestation, or to reduce the chances or a recurring infestation, there are several things that you can do, including:
Just like Norway rats, Roof rats are another of the two most common species of rats found in California. Roof rats are smaller than their Norway cousins and have larger eyes and ears. Unlike Norway rats, roof rat tails are longer than their head and body’s combined length. Also, unlike their Norway rat cousins, roof rats tend to make their nests above ground and favor roof rafters to woodpiles. Roof rats are also famous for carrying the bubonic plague. So, roof rat infestations are nothing to take lightly.
Signs of roof rat infestations include visible rats, droppings, and nests. Roof rat droppings are usually about half an inch long with pointed ends. You may also notice noises in the attic or walls and damaged electrical wires.
If you have a Roof rat infestation, then assistance from our Sacramento rat exterminators is necessary. Just like with Norway rats, you can also do several things to help prevent a new infestation and reduce recurrences of existing infestation, including:
As you would expect, kangaroo rats share several characteristics with the Kangaroo. They have long, smallish tails and forelegs. Their hind legs, however, are strong, large, and resemble the legs of their namesake. They are usually between four and six inches long and have a tail that is between seven and eight inches long. Kangaroo rats primarily feed on seeds, but they are also known to consume grass and foliage occasionally. Unlike their roof and Norway rat cousins, they are not regularly found in structures or buildings. Instead, they build their nests outside and underground with several interconnecting tunnels.
To prevent kangaroo rats, you can install a rat-proof fence around your yard. Unfortunately, other than building a fence, there isn’t much you can do to prevent an infestation. However, with the help of the Sacramento rat exterminators at Millennium Termite & Pest, you can get rid of an infestation quickly.
Here at Millennium Termite & Pest we offer reliable and affordable mouse extermination in Sacramento for several different species of mice. Those species include:
Deer mice are prevalent in California. They live outdoors and in rural areas. They very rarely invade residential neighborhoods and homes, but they can be a real nuisance in farming communities, outbuildings, and sheds. They are brown with white feet and are usually a total of five to eight inches in length (including their tails). Deer mice are also known carriers of Hantavirus.
Preventing deer mice infestations can be difficult. To do so, make sure that any hole in your home or building smaller than a pencil is completely sealed. Deer mice, as well as other mouse species, can fit through spaces as little as a dime with relative ease. Since they carry Hantavirus, make sure you’re wearing gloves, eye protection, and protective breathing gear when working in areas infested with deer mice.
To get rid of deer mice, you’ll want to set traps and lay down poison bait. And, for most infestations, you’ll be better off hiring us for mouse extermination in Sacramento.
House mice are, by far, the most common species of mouse found in California. They are dusty gray and usually between two and three inches long (including their tails). House mice breed extremely quickly and can easily adapt to a changing environment. Adult female house mice can give birth to half a dozen pups every three weeks and can produce up to thirty-five pups every single year. They’re quite the nuisance.
Signs of house mice infestations include:
To get rid of house mice, a combined attack of traps, bait, and pesticides works best. Luckily, Millennium Termite & Pest is the go-to company for mouse extermination in Sacramento! So, if you have a house mice infestation, then please don’t hesitate to give us a call for rodent removal in Sacramento.
Voles are decently common in California. They’re usually brown or grey and are between four and eight inches in length (including their tails). Voles usually feed on vegetation, insects, and animal remains. They have between one and five litters of pups every year.
To prevent voles, keep your lawns and gardens well-trimmed. You can also spray pest deterrent chemicals to help make your plants less appealing to voles. Mulch also goes a long way towards preventing vole infestations.
If you already have a vole infestation, then a combination of traps, bait, and the assistance of our team of Sacramento rodent control professionals are the best weapons in your arsenal. So, if you have voles, then don’t hesitate to give us a call for rodent removal in Sacramento.
