Know Your Enemy: How Rodents Target Your Property
Rats and mice are notorious for their ability to survive in the most challenging environments. They have evolved to become excellent scavengers, able to find food and shelter even in urban areas. As a result, these rodents often seek out indoor dwellings such as homes and businesses for food, water, warmth, and protection from predators.
Common rodents and their habits:
- Norway rats – These rats prefer burrowing near buildings or along foundations of houses. They also like eating fruits, vegetables, meats, pet food, garbage scraps, etc.
- Roof rats – This species prefers higher elevations such as attics or trees where they can nest safely away from predators and harsh weather conditions. They typically feed on nuts, fruit, and other materials that may be stored up high in the home.
- House mice – These rodents are attracted to warm places with plenty of hiding spots like kitchens or basements due to their small size which makes them easy targets for larger animals outdoors. House mice will eat nearly anything but prefer grains/seeds over all else if given the choice between two types of food sources.
Signs You Have a Rodent Infestation
- Droppings in cabinets and pantries
- Grease marks on walls, floors, and baseboards
- Foul odors coming from behind walls or other hard to access places
- Chewed wires or insulation materials
- Gnawed food packages or containers
- Unusual noises at night such as scratching sounds

Our Rodent Control Solutions
We use a combination of humane trapping techniques as well as exclusion strategies, such as sealing entry points that allow rodents into your home. We have experience using both traditional traps such as snap traps and electronic traps, which provide a more modernized solution for keeping rats and mice away from your property. In addition, our team uses specialized bait systems that deliver targeted poison only when needed.
We also offer preventative measures that will help keep rodents away from your home or business on an ongoing basis, such as making sure that all garbage bins are sealed tightly or eliminating standing water sources near your property. By taking preventative steps early on, you can dramatically reduce the chances of having a rodent problem at all—which means less money spent on eradication services!

So far, so good! We've been with Sandpiper since we moved to Sebastian 6 months ago. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to replace my former hometown pest control company in Clermont when I moved, but Sandpiper proved my fears to be unwarranted! I love that small, local business experience and that's what I get with Sandpiper Pest Control. Keep up the great work, Sandpiper!Scott S.
