Mice and rats are easy work for your Tulsa pest control company. Mice and rats are rodents that carry diseases and get into our food sources contaminating them. They leave droppings and urine everywhere they go. It’s not a good thing to have them in your home or around your family members. So it’s important to understand these rodents if you want to keep them out of your home. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at mice and rats, their life cycle, and what you and your Tulsa pest control company can do to protect yourself from these invaders.


Mice use their senses to protect themselves from predators and detect food. These small rodents find themselves at the bottom of the food chain. Because of this, they can reproduce very quickly in order to keep their numbers high enough not to be wiped out. They also have a keen sense of hearing in order to detect if they are being attacked. Often predators cannot only come from the ground, but from the air as well. Even the ones from the ground will usually creep up quietly in an effort to sneak up on these mice. Having a good sense of hearing helps to protect them from this.

Their sense of smell is also extremely good. They can sense food inside a plastic bag even if it’s still sealed. This gives them the ability to chew on bags and get into our food. Processed food is very tasty to them and they will eat as much as we do. Often they can find bags of birdseed, and make a meal out of that as well. These small mammals love seeds and other vegetable byproducts. 

In the winter months, they look for more fat and protein in order to stay warm. While their sense of vision is not so good, they make up for this with their sense of feeling. While running through a room, often they will run alongside a wall using their whiskers to feel the wall as they run past. This gives them the ability to navigate the room without running into anything. Contact your Tulsa pest control company for help with mice and rats.


In order to keep these rodents out of ] your home, it’s important that you exclude them by sealing off any entry and exit points. Foundations develop cracks and walls can have holes in them that allow these rodents to get in. But no matter how tightly you seal up your home, there’s always going to be some small crack that they can make their way through. Mice have very flexible skeletons that allow them to squeeze between small gaps and cracks. If it can get its head through, they can enter into your home. Check out our reviews!
