Colorado Springs residents are no strangers to rodents. Several different types of rodents love to live in homes alongside local area homeowners, regardless of whether or not the homeowners want them to. Rodents are highly adaptable creatures and can live in many different environments, but they are always searching for an upgrade. The upgrade they are looking for is your home. With plenty of food, water, and shelter available, it's like paradise to them. You love your Colorado Springs home; rodents love it, too, and want to share it with you.

Rodents in your Colorado Springs home can cause you a lot of grief, time, and money. High Country Pest Control does not like the sound of that any more than you do. Call us today and let us take back your home from rodents so you can have it all to yourself again. We are your Colorado Springs pest control experts of choice.

How To Identify Common Types Of Rodents In Colorado Springs

Here is a list of common rodents in Colorado Springs that you can count on visiting your home sooner or later:

  • Field mice prefer to live outside but migrate indoors in cold weather.
  • House mice are the most commonly encountered house rodent. Prone to large infestations.
  • Pack rats love shiny things, especially shiny things in your house.
  • Norway rats are large and can easily weigh up to a pound. 
  • Roof rats love your home but prefer to live up high. Infestations can go unnoticed.
  • Ground squirrels love the outdoors but think your house is great, too.
  • Voles can begin breeding when only 40 days old, with up to 10 pups per litter.

It is easy to end up with house rodents. All you have to do is to have a house. However, it can be challenging to get rid of rodents once you have them in your home or on your property. Instead of trying to go it alone, contact High Country Pest Control when you have a rodent problem. We are highly skilled and experienced and can help you get rid of rodents.

Rodents Can Spread Disease And Damage Property 

Rodents can severely damage your home. One of the worst ways they do this is by chewing on everything. Rodents are known to chew on electrical wiring and cables in your home. It's believed that nearly 1/4 of fires of unknown origins were started by rodents. Rodents like mice and rats have a well-deserved reputation for spreading diseases. To make matters worse, you don't have to interact directly with them to get exposed. All they have to do is walk across your counters or get in your cabinets to contaminate your food and potentially spread things like E. coli, salmonella, leptospirosis, and hantavirus.

Rodents in your home can cause a lot of damage to your house and your health. Don't take chances. High Country Pest Control knows how to get rid of rodents and keep them from returning. Call us now, and we'll show you how fast we can get rid of your rodent infestation with our rodent control program and how partnering with you can help minimize rodent infestations in the future.

How And Why Rodents Find Their Way Into Our Homes 

Rodents generally gain entry to homes through existing openings or by making openings of their own. It is a great idea to carefully seal the outside of your home to discourage rodents from entering, but that can't guarantee that rodents won't make an entrance anyway. Rodents possess sharp teeth and know how to use them; they do not need much space to get in. Many mice can squeeze through a hole no bigger than a dime. 

Rodents will generally come inside while seeking food, water, and shelter. If they find all three of these things in your home, and they will, they will immediately move in and start breeding. 

If you have seen rodents in your Colorado Springs home, understand that there may be others you do not see. High Country Pest Control wants to investigate your problem and help you eliminate it. Call us now and let us help you get rid of rodents.
