Specific identification is particularly critical in the group because although members of each group are similar in appearance, for example house mouse vs. roof rat vs. Norway rat, the species differ in their habits, behavior, and potential as disease vectors and control methods.
The majority of rodents are nocturnal. Some rodents, such as the house mouse, Norway rat, and roof rat, are among man’s most serious pests because they eat or contaminate stored foods, damage or destroy vast amounts of materials, and transmit or spread diseases.
The most common and preferred rodent control method is the use of glue boards, live traps, snap traps, and/or baits. In addition to trapping, rodent-proofing and other preventative measures to the structure are highly recommended in rodent control.
For commensurable rodents, the key to pest control is sanitation, harborage elimination, and rodent-proofing the structure. Once a structure is proofed, the use of rodent bait stations with rodenticides placed around the exterior of the structure may be recommended and/or needed to assist in rodent control of a structure.

There are three groups of rodents that can be divided according to their physical appearance. Members from each group look similar, but they have different habits and behaviors as well as diseases which makes them dangerous pest animals if not dealt with properly by humans or animals such as cats who carry infections themselves! Nocturnal denizens tend towards being nocturnal while daytime-dwelling creatures may cause problems at your home since some examples include house mice and field mice.
The best way to keep pesky rodents out of your home is by using glue boards, live traps, or snap traps. You can also use bait but this will only work if they are interested in eating that specific food item which might not always be the case so it’s better just to make sure everything adds up properly first.
The key to control is sanitation, harborage elimination, and ensuring that your home or business has rodent-proofing. Once these precautions are taken you may want to use bait stations with pesticides placed around exterior surfaces as well for those stubborn areas which refuse all other remedies.
