As the weather grows colder in the winter months, rodents like mice and rats are drawn to inside structures. They come into residential and commercial buildings not only to seek shelter from the cold but also because their typical food sources are more scarce during this season. Rodent control is important for home and business owners in maintaining a safe and pest-free property.
Rodents can be more than just a nuisance. They carry lots of disease-causing bacteria and can contaminate countertops, food supplies, and cooking and eating surfaces. Rodents can also cause damage to buildings and property. They can gnaw through wires causing electrical problems and fires, ruin furnishings or furniture with their teeth or droppings.
The most obvious sign of an infestation is visibly seeing mice or rats in your home or business. Often, when one rodent is spotted, it’s safe to assume there are others close by. However, you don’t have to see a mouse to know you have an infestation. Many property owners hear footprints or squealing from within their walls and in ceilings.
Other less obvious signs include noticing damage like teeth marks on furniture, baseboards, and wiring. Holes or broken food packaging with crumbs may be another sign suggesting rodents have gotten in and found the food storage.
Mice droppings are another sign of an infestation. These are typically found on carpets, along baseboards, or under furniture.
