Rodent Identification & Prevention

What are rodents?

Rodents are a type of mammal and, like other living creatures, if given the opportunity, will take advantage of any space that offers them easy access to food, water, and shelter. Unfortunately, our yards and homes often fit the bill. Rodents live worldwide, and many have learned how to benefit from living with people.

Mice and rats are examples of the different rodents that commonly find their way to our South Carolina yards and into our homes. The most stress-free way to avoid rodent problems is to partner with a professional. At Priority Pest And Contracting, we are proud to offer exceptional rodent control in Anderson, providing effective services and superior customer support!

Are rodents dangerous?

Rodents are part of the order Rodentia, and all species have continuously growing front incisors. To keep their teeth sharp and to prevent them from overgrowing, they constantly gnaw. Rodents are known for being able to cause significant damage to plants and the structure of our homes because of their gnawing habits. Rodents are destructive pests, and keeping them at bay is essential to stop them from causing extensive and expensive damage to your property.

Another reason rodents should always be discouraged from living with people is their ability to spread diseases, bacteria, and parasites to food and surfaces that can make us ill. Food waste is a huge concern when it comes to rodents; any food touched by rodents needs to be discarded immediately.
