Expert Rodent Control in Grand Rapids
Safe and Effective Rodent Removal Services
Mice, chipmunks and other rodents are talented climbers and can fit into very small places. They will make themselves at home in your house, shed, barn, outbuilding, and even inside tractors and cars. It is in these places that mice not only cause a mess but create fire hazards by chewing through wiring and pack food stuffs and bedding in and around bare wires. Mice, rats and other rodents also carry diseases and bacteria, creating health risks for you, your pets or staff.

Rodent Species Found in Michigan
The average mouse can reproduce at just 50 days of age. Mice have litters year round, with the average gestation period being only 20 days and litter sizes range from 6 to 12. When the pups are born, they weigh from 0.5 to 1.5 grams, are hairless and have closed eyes and ears. It is because of this fast reproduction cycle that mice populations can grow to the hundreds in a very short time, causing what was thought to be a minor problem into a major infestation quickly.
