Many of Delaware's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Delaware's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Kent county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Dover animal control for wildlife issues.

Dover Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a rodents mating habits?

Every creature on earth has a mating ritual. Some are elaborate, some are simple, and some are almost nonexistent. Rodents are no exception. In this article, we will look at the basic mating habits of some rodents. Rodents are mammals, and like other mammals go through estrus, gestation periods, experience a live birth, and nurse their young. All female rodents instinctively know when their "time is near" and set about seeking out a secure nesting area that is near ample food and water. All mother rodents will viciously defend their young. Past those similarities, very little is the same about each rodent's mating habits. There are at least 1500 different types of rodents in the world, and each one has their own distinct breeding schedules and mating habits. Mice are probably the most prolific rodent and can become pregnant in just 4 weeks of age. In about 20 days they give will birth and in a very short time can breed again. A mouse can have about 12 young per month.

Rats run a close second. Some types of rats only breed twice per year, but their litters are large, some types of rats can breed throughout the year. Guinea pigs can breed as young as 2 months and have a sixty-day gestation period for a liter of 1-4 pups. Although they can go into estrus throughout the year, they prefer to have only one litter in the spring Prairie dogs can breed after their first winter, and have one litter per year of 1-7 pups, always born in the spring. The chipmunk lives alone except twice a year, spring, and late summer, when it breeds. After about 30 days, the female chipmunk will burrow into her den and give birth to 3-5 young. There are some rodents like beavers who have one mate, and some like common rats whose males will breed with as many females as possible.

Capybaras go into heat randomly, and the female chooses a male by whistling through her nose. They only mate in water, and gestation is about 130 days. She will have or four pups that are raised in a community. Some rodents keep their young solitary like squirrels and some like mice will raise them in communities. And so, the list goes on. As you can see, each rodent has its own idea of reproduction. This shows use the diversity of nature. Although 1500 of the world's creatures are classified ad "rodents", they each have their own distinctive lives and habits.
