Here in the Cayman Islands we have three rodent species that invade our homes and businesses
Rodents gain entry to your home and business by finding holes as small as ¼ inch. The black rat is also known as the roof rat and normally climbs walls / trees to gain access to the roof. Mice and the brown rat gain entry from the ground, either gaining access via small holes, or gnawing through screen doors or being brought in via boxes / containers. Rodents can spread disease, contaminate food and cause considerable damage to wiring, screens, internal doors etc.
If rodents are seen around the property or in trees then it is only a matter of time before they gain entry. In addition; mice are prolific breeders and an infestation can contain large numbers in a very short time.
Rodent are an all year problem in Cayman. There are two species of rat and one species of mouse on island. Our rodent Service is inclusive of the initial set up and three follow up visits. Upon completion of the full, four visit service, if there is still some activity, the service can be continued for an additional month at a reduced price. We use tamper proof bait stations only.
There are two species of rat in Cayman and both cause much stress and cause damage.
Roof rat or Black rat (Rattus rattus) is a very common invader of our homes. It is a great climber and has the ability to walk along telephone lines etc. This rat will nest up in trees (Palm) and in attics where it will invade the rest of the house in search of food.
This rat is smaller and a darker colour than our other species
Brown or Norwegian Rat (Rattus norvegicus) is a large Brown rat that lives in burrows close to human habitation. This rat cannot climb so well but it gnaws its way into homes through screen doors etc. in search of grain food.
They gnaw on anything including electrical cables which can cause a serious fire risk.
The House Mouse (Mus musculus) is the only other rodent that will invade homes in Cayman. The mouse is a small gregarious rodent. They are great swimmers, jumpers, and climbers. They are mostly nocturnal and eat seeds.
They tend to live in kitchens close to the food source. Mice are prolific breeders and a very large population of them can occur in a short time. They also make great pets.
