Long Island Mouse and Rat Pest Control, Queens Rodent Exterminator

Long Island & Queens Rodent Control Services

Mice, rats and squirrels belong to the order of mammals known as rodents that are characterized by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in the upper and lower jaws that must be kept short by gnawing to keep them serviceable. Most rodents will eat seeds or plants, though some have more varied diets. Some rodent species have historically been pests, eating seeds stored by people and spreading disease. Mice and rats are a problem when they find their way into your home. They like to be near humans so that they have a ready supply of food. This has earned them the term "commensal," which means "sharing a table."

Mice can be harmful rodents by damaging and eating crops or causing structural damage to residences. They can spread diseases through their parasites and feces. The hantavirus has been linked to breathing dust that has come in contact with mouse excrement that may lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS). A mouse is primarily nocturnal and compensates for its poor eyesight with a keen sense of hearing and a reliance on its sense of smell to locate food and avoid predators. The Norway rat (also knonw as the brown rat or sewer rat) is a destructive pest found in urban and suburban neighborhoods. These rodents eat and contaminate food, damage buildings and other property by their gnawing and burrowing, and may spread diseases that affect people and pets. it is the largest rodent that lives among humans with coarse and shaggy fur and small eyes and ears. Rats, like mice, are primarily nocturnal with poor sight and a keen sense of smell, taste and hearing.

Identifying a Rodent Infestation on Long Island and Queens

Top Quality Exterminating provides the following signs to help the property owner identify a rodent infestation in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens counties. Unless a rodent infestation is severe, you may never physically see a mouse, rat or other rodent.

  • Rodent droppings: typically left behind in kitchen cabinets, pantries, cupboards, drawers, bins, and anywhere else the rodents think they might find food, or where they scurry to avoid predators or humans.
  • Nests: Rodents will build nests from soft, fuzzy, or warm materials, such as fabric, furniture stuffing, quilt batting, shredded paper, etc. They will typically stuff them into sheltered, out-of-the-way places like boxes, cabinets and closets, walls, even the subspace between ceilings and floors.
  • Gnaw Marks: Due to their continuously growing incisors, therefore, evidence of gnawing and chewing on food packaging or structures is a sure sign.
  • Evidence of damaged structures providing entry points into the home.
  • Stale or musty smells coming from hidden areas.

Removing rodents can sometimes be as easy as setting a trap; but a larger infestation (especially with rats or larger rodents) can be a larger issue. Rats, especially, are smart and can learn to avoid traps.

Rodents can carry up to thirty-five diseases that humans are susceptible to, which is another reason to eliminate them as soon as possible. Cleaning up after a rodent infestation also requires a great deal of caution. This is necessary because of the possibility of fleas or mosquitoes, which may transmit their own diseases to you, your children and pets. There is also risk involved if you inadvertently stir up the dust of their nests; it can be hazardous to breathe in the bacteria contained within.
