Rodent Pests

As part of an expanding coastal city, Boston, MA, neighborhoods may displace some animals as they grow. However, urban development also provides new places for unwanted houseguests to live. These may include:

Norway Rats

This rodent species is one of the most common pests in Boston. Making use of buildings and garbage for shelter as well as food, the Norway rat has adapted well to city life. However, the pests' tendency to enter homes, spread disease, and gnaw through walls or wiring make them unwelcome.

House Mice

Though smaller than a Norway rat, a house mouse causes similar problems. In fact, the rodents' tiny size allows them to get into places that rats are too big to enter. House mice contaminate food and surfaces as they forage around a house. Because the pests are nocturnal, Boston homeowners may not notice an infestation until it has already taken hold.

Parasite Pests Carried by Rodents

Rodents cause plenty of trouble for Boston residents, but they rarely arrive alone. Several parasites can invade via rats and mice such as:

Fleas

Notorious for spreading plague, a flea can also transmit other illnesses to people and pets. These small insects excel at jumping, and they travel between hosts with ease. They lay eggs in floor cracks and animal fur. The eggs fall from strands of hair easily, allowing fleas to invade new locations.

Ticks

These pests drink blood from people and animals. A tick attached to a mouse can hitch a ride into a home and feed on residents or fall off a host after taking a blood meal and lay eggs. In addition, many white-footed mice in Massachusetts carry deer ticks, which transmit Lyme disease.
