Seeing a tiny black silhouette with a fleshy tail creeping along the walls can send chills down the spine of any homeowner.

Rodents are a small class of mammals with stout legs that keep them low to the ground, long tails roughly the length of their bodies and long incisor teeth. These animals are attracted to a variety of foods and will gnaw into structures to build their nests and breed wherever food is plentiful.
The house/sewer species of rat is most common to this area of the United States and can identified by their shaggy brownish black hair and blunt muzzle. This type of rodent prefers to nest in soils or rubbish, but can gnaw their way into basements or merchandise stored near the lower level. While they will eat just about anything, this type prefers to eat meats and fish; they consume and soil food and can spread disease.
Found throughout the United States, the House Mouse is a common invader to the Massachusetts area. This rodent is typically two to three inches long with dusty gray fur. Signs of an infestation include rough gnaw marks, scratching or scurrying sounds in walls, the presence of tiny dark droppings, small borrows and damaged goods such as cereal. With an average litter size of six, these vermin are quick to multiply and threaten not only damage to your property or goods but also your family’s health in due to their disease spreading.
A chipmunk is a roughly five inch long rodent with chestnut colored fur that has two white stripes along its back. This creature is found in forests throughout the United States and feeds on things like nuts, tubers and fruits. Chipmunks can damage a home when they gnaw borrows into a residence and eventually cause stress fractures in the structure of the property. Exclusion by closing up entry points is the best way to prevent chipmunk invasion, but an F&W; exterminator may use other means of elimination.
