Types of Rodents in North Georgia

North Georgia is home to several types of rodents that can invade your home, including mice, rats, and squirrels. Here are some of the characteristics of each type of rodent:

  • House Mouse: These small rodents are the most common type of rodent found in North Georgia homes. They are about 2-3 inches long and can fit through small openings in walls, floors, and roofs. They can reproduce rapidly, with females giving birth to as many as six litters per year.
  • Norway Rat: These larger rats can cause significant damage to homes and businesses. They can grow up to 18 inches long, including their tail, and they have brown or gray fur. Norway rats are excellent climbers and can enter buildings through small openings.
  • Roof Rat: These rats have black or brown fur and are smaller than Norway rats, with a tail that is longer than their body. Roof rats are excellent climbers and can enter buildings through openings as small as a quarter inch.
  • Eastern Gray Squirrel: These squirrels are not always considered pests, but they can cause significant damage when they make their way into homes and attics. They chew through wires and insulation and can contaminate food sources.
  • Flying Squirrel: These nocturnal squirrels have a unique ability to glide from tree to tree using flaps of skin between their legs. They can be found in wooded areas and can enter homes through small openings in attics and walls.
  • Chipmunk: Similar to squirrels, chipmunks are not always considered pests. However, they can cause significant damage to gardens and landscaping when they dig tunnels and burrow.
  • Groundhog: Also known as woodchucks, groundhogs can cause significant damage to gardens and landscaping. They dig extensive tunnels and can chew through electrical wires and pipes.
  • Voles: These small rodents are often mistaken for mice or rats, but they have short tails and rounded ears. Voles live in underground tunnels and can cause damage to gardens and landscaping by eating plant roots.
  • Pocket Gopher: These burrowing rodents have large front teeth and are known for creating extensive underground tunnels. They can cause significant damage to gardens and landscaping by eating plant roots and creating holes in the ground.

Great experience! Mark is knowledgeable and fair. Very communicative! I knew exactly when his guys were coming and about what time. Benji and DJ did a great job of addressing all the areas of my home where I had gaps that were allowing squirrels into my attic. They were pleasant, efficient and accommodating. Strongly recommend this company.

Called Holders to remove an unknown critter from my house. Benji came out to do my inspection. He was personable, answered all my questions, and gave me a fair price for sealing my house and removal of the pest. He and DJ came back to do the work a couple days later. They were quick and thorough and sensitive to the fact that I had a sleeping newborn. Highly recommend.

Ricky and DJ with Holders Pest & Wildlife services performed our routine service today 9/2022. They were professional, courteous, attentive and appeared to be a good team. Ricky listened and addressed any of my concerns. I can't leave out Felicia, the receptionist, she is phenomenal! She's professional, understanding and willing to work with our schedule so that it's convenient on both sides. She's a keeper & we're grateful for her. Holders Pest & Wildlife has serviced our home for over 3 yrs and have remedied issues from mice, mites, stick bugs, antsand spiders. Being backed up to woods and a creek, we encounter a variety of creatures from time to time. I must add, although there's been a few staff changes over this time period, they still managed to provide good service each visit. Thank you for respecting our request of wearing your facial mask and shoe covers every visit! 🙂

We had a rodent problem and we chose Holder’s to do the job over our current brand name exterminator. I had a fantastic experience from the moment I called their number. The lady who took the call was very sweet and knowledgeable about the many questions I asked. Then she connected me directly with the technician, Benji, who would be coming out for the inspection. He too was so sweet and accommodating to our needs.I thought his initial inspection was done in a very professional manner. The quote and his explanation of the costs were straightforward and at no point, did he try to upsell me. The job was done in a few hours and cleanup was also done well. Benji also does a great job following up and keeping me informed.It’s definitely pricey but very much worth it to have peace of mind. It will save you from other more costly issues in the future. So far haven’t had any issues since they left.? I really liked the hands-on approach and general vibe of this company. There’s something personal about their touch that you don’t get from larger brand name companies.

We had a pest issue in the attic decided to hire Holder Pest to take a look. They were able to handle the issue with speed, professionalism and effectiveness. Their prices were fair and they offer a one year warranty. Ricky and Benji were very friendly and helpful with the entire process. Thanks again. Would recommend both for any pest issues you may have.
