Rodents have invaded human living spaces for thousands of years. If rodents,
such as rats and mice, have become a problem on your property, you may
need to call in a team of professionals.
Rodent control services are designed to eliminate a rat or mouse colony and prevent future
infestations. A company that offers fumigations will be able to help you
create a custom treatment plan for your rodent problem. If you are wondering
whether your home is in need of rodent control, here is a look at some
of the signs and symptoms of a rodent infestation.
Droppings are sure signs that you have some kind of pest control problem
in your home. Rats and mice will typically leave droppings in their most
frequented areas, such as around your baseboards, in your drawers, or
around your food storage. Rodent droppings will appear as small, black
or brown pellets that are clustered in a small area.
When you are identifying a rodent problem, you can also look for indications
of nests and nesting materials. Rodents raise their young in warm nests
that are constructed from pieces of cotton, straw, and other soft and
pliable fibers. Since rodents prefer to live out of sight, their nests
may be located in hidden locations, such as the back of a closet.
Gnaw marks can also help you diagnose a rodent problem on your property.
A rodent’s incisor teeth grow continually throughout its lifespan,
so an adult rodent needs to chew on wood or other hard materials in order
to maintain its teeth at a manageable size. You may find gnaw marks along
your baseboards, around your doors, or even inside your cabinets.
