  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland'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 Maryland'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 Anne Arundel 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 Severna Park animal control for wildlife issues.

Severna Park Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Rodents Eat Insects?

Types of Rodents

Rodent families consist of many different rodentsí species, such as chinchillas, mice, rates, squirrels and many more, etc. Each species has their own kind of diets. The usual dietaries rodents have been more towards omnivorous ones, consuming both plantations and meats. But there are certain families stick to their herbivorous diets as well, only eating the plantations and not meat eaters. Surprisingly, there are also rodents discovered to be on carnivorous diets, feeding on meats only.

1. Herbivore Rodentsí Diets

A handful of the rodent families feed on plantation and vegetation, such as seeds, fruits, leaves, flowers, roots or even vegetation planted by the farmers. If they are not able to find any such food, especially during winter, they either store these in their nesting grounds in preparation for hibernation or gnaw on tree barks. These rodent families are namely the chinchillas, chipmunks, capybara and even the North American white-footed mice, etc.

2. Omnivore Rodentsí Diets

Most of them are omnivores, feeding on both meats and plants. They will sink their teeth into anything edible that they can find, just to feed them with nutrients and getting their tummies filled up. So, usually if these rodents such as mice or rats can find insects, such as bugs or cockroaches, beetles, grasshoppers, caterpillars, lizards or even dead species of their own kind, they will not reject and enjoy their delicious meals that they have found. Such meaty meals will be providing them with high protein nutrients for their bodies to keep moving on.

3. Carnivore Rodentsí Diets

However, if you think that rodents do not live on meats only, then you may be having a misperception here. Rodents like the Shrewlike rats in the Philippines only feed on insects and soft invertebrates (animals without any backbones) and the water rats in the Australian waters feed on insects living in the water, fishes, mussels, water snails, frogs and many more.

4. Rodents Feeding on Insects

Hence, as you have read from the above, not all kinds of rodents feed on insects. There are several rodent families which only feed themselves with plantations and vegetations, which are considered a handful of the species types among the rodent families, while most of them eat anything that they can find, including insects like beetles, grasshoppers, cockroaches, and many more, etc.
