Types Of Rodents

Rodents are a group of mammals characterized by continuously growing incisors in the upper and lower jaws. They often damage building materials and personal belongings in their effort to keep their incisors short. In addition to the extensive damage these pests are capable of, rodents are also a threat to health. They have the ability to spread disease through direct handling, contact with droppings, urine, and saliva, as well as through bites.
