Rodent infestations can be solved by your Tulsa exterminator. Rodents consisting of mice and rats will find their way into your home if they can. They will seek shelter here and enjoy the warmth of your heat and the cool of your air-conditioning. They’ll feed upon your food if they can get access to it and drink from the water supplies that they can find. Many different diseases are carried by these rodents.  It is important to keep rodents out of your home if possible. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at rodents, their lifecycle, and what you and your Tulsa exterminator can do to protect you, and your loved ones from these invading pests. 



Rodents are very agile. They can jump high, swim far and run quite quickly. Having a good sense of hearing helps them in order to protect themselves from predators. Both mice and rats find themselves at the bottom of the food chain. In order to keep their species alive they must reproduce very quickly. This they can do often and quite well. Their hearing gives them the ability to hear predators not only from around them, but from above as well. 


In addition, their sense of smell is quite acute as well. They can smell food even through a plastic wrapper. While these senses are quite acute, their sense of vision is not very good at all. Because of this, rodents must use their other senses to navigate the areas that they run through. Often you’ll see mice and rats running along walls. This is because, as they run, they use their whiskers to feel the wall as they go. This gives them the ability to navigate very quickly and run quite fast. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for help.  



They eat anything that we will eat. They like foods with proteins, fats and carbohydrates. They have to find their way into our kitchen and pantry areas and feed up on the food that we find. They can smell food inside of a plastic bag and will chew through the plastic bag in order to consume that food. Your Tulsa exterminator will have more information.  Check out our reviews!


Chewing is something that they have to do on a regular basis. Their teeth will grow continually. They must be trimmed back by chewing on hard things, such as stone, wood, drywall and other hard surfaces. By chewing on this, they can trim back these large front teeth and keep them the right size. If left unchecked, these teeth will grow so long that they will actually make it so that the rodent can no longer eat. The rodent will starve to death if they don’t continue to trim back their teeth.
