We know how incredibly frustrating it can be to have a rodent problem in your home. Whether you’ve heard scurrying in your walls or found holes in cardboard food boxes in your kitchen, you may have a rodent problem. Some homeowners may not know when to call for rodent control. Dealing with the problem immediately is your best action to prevent it from escalating. In this article, we will review some of the top signs to know when you need rodent control.
- Droppings – One common sign that you have a rodent problem is if you find droppings around your house. The most obvious place that you will find droppings is near food access. You may find them around your kitchen or in drawers or cupboards.
- Nibbled Food and Crumbs – Rodents are known for eating and leaving behind nibbled food or a mess. If you suspect you have a rodent problem, check bags of cereal, crackers, and other food items to see if there are holes in the packages. Rodents are also capable of chewing through plastic bags to get to food.
- Weird Smells – Usually a colony of rodents will leave behind an odor. You may have rodents if you smell something musty or stale in your home. You will most likely smell their urine if you are close to their nest.
- Reactive Pets –If your cat or dog fusses over a specific area in your home, they may be alerting you to a rodent problem.
