July 05, 2022
Rodents can be difficult to get rid of. Unfortunately, each day they spend in your home leads to more damage and an increased risk of serious diseases that can compromise the health of your family. They are very common in American homes. According to Pest World, no less than 37% of homeowners in the United States have seen a rodent in their home in the past year. Here are some signs that you might be living with rodents.
1. Strange Sounds
Rodents usually hide during the day and come out at night when it's dark and quiet. They can, however, move around in the ceiling and in other dark areas, even during the day. So if you hear some weird scratching or pattering sounds when the lights are out, you may have some uninvited guests in your home. When rodents move into your home, they will get into all the hidden places you can't reach. If you start hearing funny sounds but you can't exactly tell where they are coming from, you should look for rodent removal services as soon as possible.
2. Rodent Droppings
This is an obvious sign that there are rodents living among you. If you suspect rodents or maybe you heard a funny sound but aren't sure where it came from, you may need to take a look at the floor and surfaces throughout your home. If there are any droppings, then it might be time to look for rodent removal services. Droppings are one of the most obvious signs that rodents are in your home. There are places where you are likely to find lots of them during your inspection. This includes the basement, attic, cabinets, and crawl spaces.
3. Damaged Furniture
Rodents seem to enjoy chewing on furniture. Even if there is enough food in your home for them to feast on, they will also wreck your furniture if the infestation gets bad enough. In most instances, you will start seeing damage to the upholstery on your chairs and sofas. They will also chew through the drywall and baseboards so they can get to places. If you notice signs of property damage, it's likely that there are some rats living in your home.
