Identifying Rodent Bite Marks

Identifying Rodent Bite Marks

Landcare Research conducted an in-depth survey of different wildlife biting and chew habits, diagraming bite marks for many different wildlife in a 60page report. In this blog, our experts from Critter Stop will summarize their findings to help our Dallas residents to identify rodent bite marks!

From our experience at rodent removal, we can be sure that their teeth never stop growing. So just like teething babies that like to have something in their mouth at all times, rodents relieve pain by chewing. This is why they will chew on wood, plastic, and everything in between. They are not necessarily chewing for food. They may be chewing to gain entry or simply because it feels good on their teeth.

Rodents will often target materials that may provide a water source, such as a dish washer or refrigerator water line. If they are not seeking out water or attempting to gain entry, they usually target softer materials that feel good on their teeth, such as rubbery wires or foam insulated hoses. This is one reason why addressing rodents in your attic is so important – it is often just a matter of time before they cause electrical damage.

What does a Mice Bite Marks looklike?

Identifying mice bite marks requires a fine eye for detail due to their small size, our expert team at Critter Stop has provided rodent removal services so many times in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, that is easy for us to know what type of rodent you have. Mice have large incisor teeth, with the remaining molars in the back of the jaw. As a result, their chew marks are characterized by incisor-pair impressions. Mice, due to their smaller size, typically only nibble on materials and cause much less damage than rat

What does a Rat Bite Marks looklike?

Rats are very similar to mice in many ways, particularly in regards to their body structure and their habits. Rats have leave similar incisor-pair marks, but they are able to remove much more material and do much more damage. Rats are more likely to chew holes through materials or chew through it altogether. Rats also tend to leave more jagged edges along the materials that they chew while mice tend to leave smoother edges.

I’d give a 10 star review if I could! We had a great experience with Critter Stop. Everyone I dealt was friendly, professional, and reassuring. Phillip was very helpful and knowledgeable about the work he was doing. He walked me around the entire house to make sure I saw and understood the services he provided. He was also really nice and answered all my questions — he is exactly the type of person that should be interacting with customers.I love the fact that they will come back for up to 1 year after installation if any problems occur — this shows me they stand behind their work.The owner was great too, he personally came to my house and walked me through their offering. I recommend critter stop to anyone and everyone!

Critter Stop is a fantastic business! Everyone involved is extremely professional and very easy to communicate with. Chisam, the owner, did a great job of explaining the process to get the squirrels out of my attic during the initial free estimate. The exclusion crew who did all of the initial work was fabulous. The crew consisted of Phillip, Nick and Corey who arrived promptly when they said they would. They are happy, positive employees. Everyone is very polite and patient in explaining their work and answering questions. They came back several times to check the traps and finish it off with the fogging. Lester was very good about following up to schedule each trap check with me, and the office staff who took care of the billing was very efficient. Critter Stop is a well run company with honest, trustworthy employees! Thank you to all of you who worked hard to make my attic critter free and for the peace of mind that you guarantee your work. Great to know I can call them if for some reason a squirrel figures out a way to get back in!

The guys at Critter Stop responded quickly, were very friendly, and gave us an honest estimate of what we might need. They explained why some items on other quotes were or were not necessary. They communicated well to get us scheduled, and did the work well and quickly. Great service at a fair and competitive price.
