The most common rodents are rats and mice, but squirrels, skunks, groundhogs and raccoons are also rodents, and can cause major problems to premises and the surrounding land. They are also a potential threat to health, domestic pets and humans.

Apart from the risks to health, rodents can also cause severe damage to property by gnawing through walls, wiring and floors. They will take up residence in wall cavities, roof space, beneath floors, out of the way places even in food storage containers or under machinery or appliances. They are not restricted just to commercial premises, they will take up residence in homes, hospitals, theatres, sports venues, and schools.
