Now that the cold is finally here, some homeowners may be experiencing visits from an unwelcome pest. During the winter, mice and other rodents will make their way indoors to outlast frigid temperatures and secure access to much-needed food and water. However, to ensure the best pest control solution is implemented, signs of mice and other rodents can help determine the exact type you are dealing with and how many of them there are.
There are several tell-tale signs of rodent infestation that homeowners and business owners should be familiar with to pinpoint the location of these pests and the severity of the problem. Finding rodent droppings is not only a sure sign that mice or other rodents are present, but also can help determine the type of rodent you are experiencing, such as a Norway rat or house mice. Droppings will generally be found in areas frequented by these pests including interior walls, electrical wires, and near food and water sources
Other signs of mice infestation, or other rodents, may also be readily apparent depending on the severity of your problem. Unexplained smells around the home will often stem from the presence of mice or rats, including ammonia-like smells from their urine or the unmistakable smell of a decaying rodent corpse. Homeowners and business owners may also experience unusual sounds at night as the rodents begin to forage for food or open their pantry to find that food has been tampered with or chewed through.
If you are noticing signs of mice or rodents in your home, it may be time to call the experts. As carriers of many diseases, rodents can quickly become a detriment to the health and psychology of those they are around.
