Pest Control Guide - Rodents in Indiana, Kentucky, & Illinois

Rodents can carry serious diseases and they are instinctively wary of traps and bait. They live everywhere outside and could enter at any time, but fortunately, this does not occur often. Usually, most home invasions occur in the fall, because the seeds and plants on which rodents feed outside are gone. The most common include:


HOUSE MOUSE

  • They create health problems with their numerous fecal droppings and constant urination.
  • They often enter structures in fall in search of food.
  • They can produce about 6 young per litter and have about 8 litters per year.
