Why Rodents Are a Bigger Problem Than They Seem
How can so much trouble come from something so little? For starters, rodents reproduce very quickly and this makes for some inherent problems if you suspect an infestation. For mice, females start mating at around 4-7 weeks old and once pregnant will take only 3 weeks to have a litter. Each litter can contain up to 20 pups and because females can start breeding only one day after giving birth, they can have about 15 litters a year. A telltale sign that you have mice that are going to have a litter soon is that you find chewed-up cardboard boxes throughout your home. While many homeowners think this is mice looking for food, it’s actually the pregnant female looking for any soft material to make a nest to have her litter.
Rats take mating to another level entirely. According to Live Science, female brown rats (those most common on Long Island) can mate about 500 times in a 6-hour period. Their gestation period lasts for about 3 weeks as well and afterward can have anywhere from 7 to 22 pups per litter. It takes only about 3 months for females to reach maturity to be ready to mate. Considering the average lifespan of a rat is about 2.5-3 years, a typical female can have up to 40 litters in their lifetime. This rate of reproduction among a rat population in your East End home can be a huge problem if not treated quickly.
Rodents are an issue because of the diseases they can carry. While a relatively clean creature in nature, suburban and urban mice subside on anything they can get a hold of. They are also a main form of transportation for fleas and ticks which can carry infectious diseases themselves. Factor these facts with the alarming rate of reproduction these rodents have and it becomes clear that you need your rodent problem handled immediately.
