Always on the hunt for food, water, and shelter, rodents commonly seek refuge during the cool temperatures of fall. They have a remarkable ability to adapt, and the smallest entry way into a home or business can turn into an accidental open invitation.
Rodents contaminate food and damage buildings by constant gnawing and burrowing. In addition, they can spread diseases to people and pets, leave nasty odors, and commercially cause significant economic and reputable losses for professional establishments.
Any sightings of live or dead rodents indicate rodent activity. If rodents are seen exposed, it often indicates that their hiding spaces are filled with more of them. If you haven’t spotted the rodent itself, some things to look out for are their droppings, (usually ½ inch long with pointed ends,) deposited oils from their fur, known as rat paths, and gnawed food packages.
Appearance: 12 - 18” long / Black or Brown
Behavior: Rats are omnivorous and will feed on almost anything available to them including tree bark, meat and grain. While known for being eating machines, they’re equally known as hoarders; often stashing seeds and nuts.
Only adding to intense infestation, roof rats are prodigious breeders. At only two and five months, they can start having four to six litters per year, each litter consisting of six to eight baby rats, with a life expectancy of a year.
Environment: These nocturnal rats are commonly found in both urban and rural areas, and can easily adapt to a wide range of environments. Tending to prefer living in dry upper levels of buildings, these accomplished climbers are commonly found in wall cavities and false ceilings. While in their densely populated nests, infectious diseases may be carried in their blood and can actively fester and spread.
Appearance: 3”- 4” long minus the tail. Gray Colored
Behavior: By nature mice are herbivores; they prefer to feed on cereal grains, but will eat almost any type of food and food scraps. They require very little water, and are known to store extra food in burrows and other hiding places.
Usually associated with rodents are the diseases they carry. In the case of House Mice, the major health risks surrounding them include salmonella and leptospirosis.
Environment: The house mouse can be found in both urban and rural areas, will easily adapt to a wide range of environments and can gain access to a home through an opening of only ¼ inch.
It doesn’t take more than a small open entryway to let rodents into your home. Here are some of the most common spots of entry and harborage to check if you start finding unwanted critters around your home or office.

Pinnacle is absolutely fantastic! We used to have them at our home in the Sacramento area (they have a branch up there as well) and when we moved to the Bay Area we were super happy that they service the East Bay as well. I can't speak highly enough about Pinnacles customer service, amazing office staff, fantastic on-site technicians who actually CARE about their clients.. This is good old fashioned customer service, the way it sssgrSHOULD be… A+!
I want to thank Jim at pinnacle. We thought we had a powder post beetle problem. We had another termite company tell us that we needed to fumigate our house for $5,000. We called Pinnacle for a second opinion and it turned out we had Milled in beetles that did not need a fumigation. I could not believe it. We were looking for a better price. The other company made a mistake. Thanks again for being honest.
Literally the easiest company to work with! I have used them for 3 years now! Home infested moving in, not a problem after their treatment. I use them for quarterly service now. The staff are so incredibly kind and professional! It comes from the top! From the person receiving the call to schedule the appointment to the technician … all are amazing and really try to help! Technician will call when 30 min away and spends as much time as needed for a thorough treatment!
I have an older home near neighbors that I believe to be horders. It seems that mice travel from that house to my home on a very regular basis. I have gone through several exterminating companies over the years until i Pinnacle Pest. I called them the first time and they were excellent! The best by far. They're effective, courteous reliable service both both costumer service and individual exterminators. They know their trade very well and even educate the costumer about pest control.
