Signs of Rodent Infestation
Mice, rats, and other rodents all leave telltale signs that they have
been in your house, and it’s not always easy to just shoo them away.
They will come back. Here are some signs that you may have a rodent
Rodent Droppings: The biggest sign of mice, rat or other rodent
infestation would be the droppings that they leave behind. This happens
mostly around food and especially your pet’s food. You may also see rat
and mouse droppings under sinks, in cabinets, in your attic and in your
basement. Storage boxes, especially with clothing and papers, will be
another area you may find rodent droppings.
Rodent Nests: Just like with rodent droppings, you may find mouse or
rat nests in your home. These areas are more like to be warm, and close
to food and water sources. Storage areas may be a target for rodent
nests because of clothing or papers that rodents look for.
Damaged Food Containers: If you find that food boxes in your pantry
have been nibbled, or torn into, then you may have rodent issues. If it
looks like there are rodent droppings there too, time to give us a call.
Dangers of Rodent Infestations
Mice, rats, and other rodents in your home are not only a nuisance, but they could also pose health concerns for your family.
Allergic Reactions: Rodent droppings can cause allergic reactions for you and your family.
Disease: Lethal diseases like the Hantavirus can be carried in
rodent droppings. There is also a potential of rodent droppings or
saliva contaminating your food, since some mice and rats carry
Salmonella and other bacteria.
Damage: Since rodents’ teeth are always growing, they tend to gnaw
on areas of your home, deck, furniture in order to keep their teeth
short. This leads to damage of wood, wiring, and insulation in and
around your home.
If you feel that you may have mice, rats, or other rodents we’ll come
and assess where they are, and help you decide the best course of
action to get rid of them
