Putting out a trap with a piece of cheese in the middle of your kitchen is not always the most effective way to detect a mouse in the house. But with the onset of cooler months ahead, now is the time to amp up your rodent prevention/control and find out what the signs of rodents are so that you can quickly detect an infestation in your home before they cause damage and threaten the health and safety of your family. Let’s face it, sometimes pests just happen. You may not know exactly how they got in there but here are the signs to look out for in case rodents do get in your home:  

  1. Droppings and urine left behind in the kitchen or other areas that rodents have been frequenting.
  2. Gnawing on food packaging, personal belongings, or structures of the home.
  3. Rodent nests which can be made of anything from twigs and grass to packaging and fabrics.
  4. The pitter patter of mice or rats running through the home or walls at night.
  Mice and rats are not good company to have. They have a tendency to contaminate food, spread disease and illness to you and family members, and cause structural damage to the home. In order to avoid such instances from occurring it is best to kick off the fall season with a little  rodent proofing in and around your home. Refer to our previous blog: Mice Prevention Tips For The Upcoming Winter to get your home protected before any critters try to get inside.
