Rodents Control

Bash Services offers specialized treatment designed to effectively and efficiently control and prevent pests from spreading infection within your home or workplace. Our use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques focuses on finding and treating the source of pests. Rodents are spread in all regions of Amman and Jordan, where they can be found in homes, restaurants, warehouses, factories, offices, companies, hotels, hospitals, schools, universities, banks, and others. 

Rodents are a group of annoying pests that include mice and rats. They can contaminate food, damage property, and spread disease, so their spread must be stopped as soon as they appear. Rodents are more than 40 percent of mammals. Although there are more than 2,230 species, only three species are commonly considered as major; Roof Rats, the Norway Rats, and the House Mouse.

What are Rodents?

Rodents are highly adaptable animals, so if a particular food source runs out, they are likely to adapt to a new food source easily. In addition, they are most active just after sunset and just before sunrise – hours during which most people sleep. These factors make rats and mice difficult to control.

In biology, both rats and mice are capable to transmitting disease to humans through their fur / hair, droppings, and urine. A single mouse can excrete 40 to 100 droppings per day. 

Rodents live in close with humans and tend to move to warmer areas during late fall or early winter and return to the outdoors in late spring or early summer. They usually have a poor sense of vision, but they have acute sense of smell as well as touch, and taste, and they are generally good climbers, swimmers, and burrowers.

Species of Rodents

There are three common types of rodents: 

Roof Rat 

The Roof rat is slender and agile, able to climb into high places, and its tail is longer than the head and body combined. It may reach a total length of 13 to 17 inches. These rats’ nests exist above ground and live in kitchen cabinets, refrigerators, stoves, fireplaces, under sinks, basements, garages, and attics. They prefer to feed on fruits and nuts. 

Norway Rat 

The Norway rat is larger and more aggressive than the Roof Rat. It has smaller eyes and ears, and its tail is shorter than the length of the head and body combined. It can reach a total length of 12 to 17 inches. Norway rats and their nests live in an underground burrow system and they are generally found in agricultural areas, creeks and sewers. It can also live in buildings, basements, waterfronts, and under wood piles. They feed on garbage and meat scraps, cereal grains, fruits and vegetables.

House mouse 

The house mouse is small and slender, with a tail that is longer than the length of its head and body combined. Its body size ranges from 6 to 7 inches. Its body color is grayish brown with a gray belly. House mice are agile climbers and can enter openings as small as ¼ inch in diameter. It eats many types of food but prefers seeds and grains.

Differences Between Rat & Mouse

How do rodents reproduce?

A female rat can breed every three weeks, and she usually gives birth to about 6 to 10 young at a time. Female mice reproduce every three to four weeks and usually give birth to approximately 5 to 6 young. Although they grow and reproduce very quickly, they only live for about one year. Mice can live up to two or three years under ideal conditions.  

What are the signs of rodent activity?

Damaged or partially eaten fruits and nuts, such as walnuts, oranges and avocados. 

Signs of biting wood or rubber surfaces. 

Marks on painted or wooden walls as a result of repeated contact with rat’s oily fur 

Rodent droppings are usually signs of high rodent activity 

Burrows in the ground 

Noisy or gnawing noises 

What are the damages rodents can cause?

Rodents can be highly destructive pests as they contaminate food and its surrounding 

They can cause costly physical damage 

They can cause fires from chewing electrical wires.  

Most importantly, rodents are carriers of many diseases. Rats and mice sometimes bite and this bite can lead to a serious disease if not treated, such as lymphocytic chorioamnionitis. This disease mostly affects those with weakened immune systems and may lead to headaches, fever, and meningitis. 

It can also cause complications during pregnancy. Some people may have an allergic reaction to rat droppings, which can cause asthma-related symptoms. It is not recommended to handle any wild rodents as they have large teeth and are capable of transmitting a variety of bacteria, viruses and diseases through saliva, feces and urine. 

In biology, the most common diseases caused by rodents have been identified:

Salmonellosis

Bacterial “food poisoning” that may be transmitted when rodents defecate or urinate on food, dishes, floors, and every object human use.  

Leptospirosis

It is caused by Treponema bacteria, which humans may become infected through the contact with water or ingestion of food contaminated with infected rat urine. 

Rat typhus 

It is caused by Rickettsia Typhi. It can be transmitted to rodents and then transmitted to human when flea-infected feces come into contact with human skin.
