How do you know if you have a Rodent Problem and where could they be?
Just when you think the cold weather has driven all the pests away, you will notice droppings from rodents in your home. Although, at first they may look like little grains of brown rice, these are tell tale signs that they are not nearly as harmless as they may seem. The feces from mice can contaminate your food and spread diseases to you and your family, so if you see any of the signs of mice in your home you will most likely have an infestation of rodents to deal with. In the fall and winter months, rodents including rats and mice are in search of shelter and a source of food and your home or business is warm for the cold months. Rodents are pests that rely on people to survive, and when they find their way into the interior of your home they look for a safe and out of the way place to live and not be disturbed to build their nest. Mice and rats are able to hide just about anywhere inside your home that will include that attic, basement, closets, inside walls, boxes in the storage rooms, wood piles, and even in the vehicle trunk or engine. As long as the place is undisturbed, rodents will build a nest and live. Once they have built a nest, rodents will begin to search for a source of food. They will inspect your whole house in search of a source of food including crumbs from the cupboards, behind the appliances, in the bags of pet food that is stored in any area. Rodents will tend to follow the same trail; more than ever once it has given them a consistent source of food. Rodents will leave body marks along the walls with the grime as their fur rubs off onto the path of the same track they follow. In addition, you will find or spot droppings in the areas where rodents have been feeding.
