Understanding Rodent Infestations

Defining Rodent Infestations

A rodent infestation involves a stable presence of rats, mice, or other rodents in human environments. These creatures are drawn to environments that provide food, water, and shelter, and can breed rapidly under favorable conditions.

Signs of Infestation

Recognizing the signs of a rodent infestation is the first step towards effective control. These signs include droppings, gnaw marks, nests in secluded areas, unexplained noises within walls or ceilings, and unusual pet behavior. If you notice any of these signs, it's critical to contact a professional pest control service.

Why are Rodents a Problem?

Rodents can pose significant health risks by transmitting diseases like Hantavirus, Salmonella, Leptospirosis, and Rat-Bite Fever. Besides health risks, they can cause extensive property damage. Rodents have been known to gnaw through structures, wiring, insulation, and personal belongings.

Strategies for Rodent Control


The old adage "Prevention is better than cure" rings true with pest control. To prevent a rodent infestation, it is essential to limit their access to food and water, seal potential entry points, and maintain cleanliness. Regular inspections by a pest control service like Empire Lawn & Pest Control can also help nip any infestations in the bud.


When an infestation is detected, immediate treatment is necessary. Our trained professionals employ a combination of strategies, including trapping and baiting. In some cases, the use of rodenticides may be necessary to fully eliminate the infestation.

Post-treatment Measures

After the infestation is eliminated, post-treatment measures are essential. This includes thorough cleaning and disinfecting of the infested areas, identifying potential re-entry points and sealing them, and regularly monitoring the premises to ensure the infestation does not recur.
