Rodents

Rodent Identification & Treatment

Rodents are small mammals that commonly infest homes and businesses in Kansas. Mice and rats are the most common. Mice and rats can be differentiated by their ears, tail length, droppings and size. Both of these rodents are pests that can infest homes, cause structural damage and contaminate stored food and food surfaces. Both mice and rats also transmit and spread diseases. Different bait and trapping methods are needed for mice and rats due to the difference in size and behavior between the two rodents. If you see rodents or rodent droppings, call Patton Termite & Pest today for prompt, effective and friendly service.

Mice and Rats

Termites are wood-destroying insects which commonly infest forested environments and generally live in the soil. The indigenous termites in Kansas live in the soil and are called subterranean termites. Their part in nature is to digest decaying wood and turn it into nutritious soil. Specifically, they seek out areas that have moisture and cellulose materials such as wood.

Much like ants, termites are social insects that randomly and continuously forage for food. The workers are blind because they live in tunnels. They follow complex chemical markers called pheromones which tell them where to go and what to do. Modern research has shown that termites will travel the length of a football field to gather food.

The queen is capable of laying thousands of eggs every day to grow the colony while the workers feed and groom the queen and her subjects. The worker is the most abundant member of the colony and is responsible for damaging wood structures.They tear off small wood particles, digest the wood in their gut and feed it to the rest of the colony.
