How to Identify Signs of a Rodent Infestation
Rodent infestations are similar to icebergs. By the time you start seeing a few rodents around your home and yard, there are likely many more nested nearby. Some may even be hidden in your cupboards, under your floor, in your walls, or in your attic.
Are You Already Infested?
Is your home already infested with rats and mice? Keep your eyes (and ears) on the lookout for these signs.
- Chewed food packages
- The smell of droppings or urine
- Shredded paper or fabric that seems to be clumped in a nest
- Holes chewed in your walls or floors
- Rodent droppings, especially near your kitchen
- Noises (such as squeaks or scratches) from your walls or ceilings
How Did Rodents Enter Your Home?
It can be stressful to discover that mice and rats have burrowed their way into the walls of your home. You may find yourself wondering why they chose your house and not the home of one of your neighbors. Truthfully, there may not be a specific reason why. Rodents are opportunistic and will look for any comfy crevice they can find to make their nest. Common entry points into your home include:
- Holes in walls (which rats may chew out themselves)
- Open doors (including garage doors)
Unfortunately, once a single rodent decides to nest in your home, it is likely to bring other rodents along with it. Rodents can multiply rapidly, and most mice can have up to five litters per year (with up to 12 pups per litter, depending on the species). If a rodent problem is left unchecked, it can be disastrous for your home, health, and bills. It is always best to handle a rodent control problem by calling in the professionals as soon as possible after discovering evidence of a rodent infestation.
Why Do Rodents Nest In Attics?
Rodents especially favor dark, humid spaces when possible. A warm attic space is the perfect place for them to hide, especially when most homeowners don’t visit their attic every day (or even every week). If your attic is left undisturbed, it’s no surprise that rodents may fall in love with it. Rats and mice may choose to burrow into your attic insulation to make their nests. In the process, they can leave urine and droppings that will leave your attic in a foul condition.
Is your attic infested? Call our office at (833) 3-RODENT (763368) to ask about our attic cleaning services. After we investigate your attic for signs of mice and rats, we will clean your insulation. If desired, our team of experts can also remove the insulation and safely replace it.
How to Discourage Rodents From Infesting Your Home
Even after the rodent control professionals handle a rodent infestation in your home, there is always the chance that new rodents may choose to settle in your home in the future. Here are our top tips on discouraging rodents from returning to your home:
- Block and seal any entry points you find in the walls.
- Keep doors to the outside clothes.
- Keep your home clean. Never leave food out on the counter.
- Don’t keep pet food out on your porch.
- Store all trash bags in bins. Never leave trash bags exposed outdoors.
- Clean your attic and check up on it regularly throughout the year.
Domestic rodents that you adopt from a quality breeder can make for cute pets. However, wild rodents can be very dangerous. Not only do rodents bite, but they can also carry hazardous diseases (some of which may even be deadly to humans). Never try to grab rodents in your bare hands. For your own safety, we encourage you to leave rodent control to the professionals. This way, you will not expose yourself to disease or bites, and you also won’t cause damage to your home by spraying harmful chemicals in the hopes of killing a few rats in the process.
