Rats and mice are not very sanitary animals and often carry disease like rabies. Be sure if you are handling pest traps with deceased rodents that you protect your face with a mask of some sort and heavy duty gloves. Be sure to dispose of the animal safely and away from the property and carefully dispose of anything the rodent came in contact with like your gloves.
Common Rodent Damage
Ask any HVAC technician what the most common rodent damage they find and you will get the same two answers. Damage to ductwork and electrical wiring. We asked our friends at a local Modesto HVAC company to share some images of damage they typically find and they were gracious enough to do so. But if you have ever had a problem with mice or rats in your home or neighborhood you know the damage is not limited to just ductwork.
Mice and rats can gnaw through a wide variety of materials, including lead and aluminum sheeting, window screens, wood, rubber, vinyl, fiberglass, plastic, and sometimes even cheap concrete. So why are these critters so destructive? Rats and mice are fast and furious. They can fit through small spaces, jump long distances, and burrow in about 36 inches.
