Pest Identification: Rodents in Tennessee

As a homeowner or business owner in Tennessee, dealing with rodents in your space can be an unsettling and frustrating experience. Along with their fast movements and off-putting presence, rodents—including rats and mice—can carry and spread roughly 35 diseases that could put you, your family, your employees, or your customers at risk. Worse, their environmental adaptability and rapid rate of reproduction means a small problem can escalate into large-scale infestation quickly. 

Fortunately, at U.S. Pest Protection, our professional pest control technicians have been treating rodent infestations in Tennessee homes and commercial buildings for years. Whether you’re dealing with a single rodent skittering behind your refrigerator or a handful of them taking shelter inside your business, our monthly, bimonthly, or quarterly pest control programs can rid your property of rodents swiftly while preventing them from coming back.

Preventing Rodents from Entering Your Tennessee Home

Rodents are constantly on the hunt for safe places to shelter and ample food sources—and that means your Tennessee home or business could be at risk if the proper precautions are not in place. To ensure rats and mice stay far away from your property, follow these steps:

Seal Your Property

If your property has cracks, crevices, gaps, or holes, rats and mice can easily make their way indoors. Make sure to seal or repair any unintentional entry points so these pests can’t maneuver their way into your space. 

Keep Your Area Clean

Rodents are scavengers, which means they will eat anything and everything in their path. Make sure indoor and outdoors spills are cleaned up quickly and thoroughly, and always keep your food items and dried goods in airtight containers. 

Prevent Standing Water

Like humans, rats and mice need ample water to survive. If you are worried about an ongoing rodent infestation, make sure all water sources in your home—including pipes, faucets, and drains—are completely sealed and free from leaks or standing water.

Even with these precautions in place, rodents are great at forcing their way into places they shouldn’t be.
