About Pest Animal Removal Long Beach and Our Services:
Rodents have one of the most varied natural diets. When there is an ample food source, the Long Beach rodents will not limit themselves to a single food type. They will have a taste of all these food items. They are also known for storing the foods. When in the wild, the rodents will be eating various types of food that makes them an opportunistic feeder.
Foods that the Rodent will Eat
Perhaps one of the reasons behind the variety on their natural diet is because they do not fear California humans. They can easily find an access to our kitchen and garden to find different foods. Therefore, rodents have been treated as pests since they will usually conflict with human interests.
Plant-Based Food and Insects
The California rats are originally an omnivore but in the wild, they will also have a taste of insects to ensure that they are receiving the right nutrition. The rats that eat seeds first emerged about 50 million years past. Plant may also satiate their hunger, but it often contains low amount of energy. In addition, accessing the nitrogen content of the plant is somehow difficult due to their fibrous walls. As time passes by, the rodents have finally adapted on eating plant-based sustenance. Their gastrointestinal tract has adapted in processing the plant-based food. Rodents will eat seeds and insects particularly the Australian mice and rats. Large rats are also known to be herbivores with their broad teeth.
Some Long Beach rodents such as the Mongolian gerbils will have a natural diet that is composed of grasses such as bristle and Lyme grass. Apart from these, they will also enjoy the taste of other greens like saltwort and mugwort. Other food items that are part of their natural diet includes grains, bulbs, seeds, and roots. If there is a scarcity on food supply, they have no choice but to eat bugs. There are also species of rodents that can conserve water in their body. They will be expelling highly-condensed urine and dried excrement that ensures the animal that they have enough supply of water. They will be receiving their water supply from the grasses that they eat.
Compared to the large rodents, small rodents will need to receive nutritious foods that will be able to preserve their metabolic rate. Not a lot of small rodents will have varied diet and will simply consume fruits, fungi, and insects. There are also species of rodents that can easily change their diet depending on the availability and the season. For instance, the New Holland Mice will be eating seeds in the summer and will consume stems during the winter. Silky mouse can also change their diet to insects during the winter season.
Rodents have strong and sharp teeth that enables them to eat a variety of California food. Their digestive system was able to adapt that allows them to eat leaves and stems and other fibrous food. This variation in their diet enables them to survive in almost all type of setting.
