While I can't speak specifically for State Farm, most insurance companies will cover damage caused by a rodent under comprehensive coverage. This type of coverage insures against damage not caused by a car-on-car collision, and damage caused by an animal is a primary example.

For specifics about your State Farm policy, we'd recommend contacting them directly just to be sure. Good luck!
