Rats are large in size yet still have the ability to jump, swing and climb. The rat eats more in a day than the average mouse. Black Rats can cause structural damage or fire’s by chewing through cables. They also spread human diseases, such as: Leptospirosis, Salmonella, Listeria and Toxoplasma gondii.

Mice are the most common rodent found in American homes. Especially when it gets cold outside, they seek comfort and warmth inside. They are tiny acrobats that can invade pantries, drawers and climb on counters. Mice can feed up to twenty times per day. Aside from their annoying behavior, they are known to spread Hantavirus, Salmonella and over 100 other human pathogens.


Racccoons are very cute. They can be friendly and even playful. However, they are known to carry Rabies, Baylisascaris infection and Raccoon Distemper. Furthermore, they are known to invade attics, crawlspaces, and between walls. Because of this, they can cause a great amount of damage to insulation, wiring, and duct work.


According to the South Carolina DNR, there are thirty-eight species of snakes in the Charleston area.
