Top signs of a rodent infestation include:
Droppings: If you are dealing with a rodent infestation, you are extremely likely
to find little black droppings around your home. Mice droppings are small
and smooth, whereas rat droppings are large and shiny.
Urine Smell: In addition to leaving toxic feces in their wake, rodents are also prone
to create trails of urine everywhere they go. You may notice a foul smell
if mice or rats are urinating in your home, especially in dank, dark corners
of your attic or basement.
Bite Marks: Rats and mice have long teeth that never stop growing. As a result, they
constantly have to gnaw on wood to shave their teeth down. You may notice
these bite marks on wooden furniture or fixtures in your home if you are
dealing with a rodent infestation. You may also want to look out for electrical
problems, as wiring is another common bite target for rodents.
Scurrying Sounds: Rodents are typically most active at night. Listen for scurrying sounds
in your attic or walls when you go to bed, as this may be a sign that
there are rats or mice running around your house.
Tracks/Rub Marks: It is common to see little tracks left behind by mice and rats when an
infestation occurs. Rats also commonly leave behind “rub marks,”
which are an accumulation of grease on their body that gets left behind
as they squeeze through different spaces.
To prevent a rodent infestation from occurring, make sure you always clean
up after yourself. It is key to properly seal and store food, as rodents
will flock to anywhere they can find a leftover food source. These pests
are also attracted to dirt and filth in general, so regular sanitation
is key. Keep in mind that mice can compress their body into a hole the
size of a dime, while some rats can fit through openings no larger than
a quarter, so patching up holes and cracks throughout your property is
a good idea as well.
