HOW TO IDENTIFY A RODENT INFESTATION
Appearance- Rats and mice are the most commonly problematic rodents in houses and businesses. Deer mice, house mice, Norway rats, and roof rats are all found in the United States.
Behavior – You may see a mouse or rat scurrying away when you open a garage door, shed, or cabinet. At times rodents will be brazen enough to run right across the floor in front of you. Seeing rodent droppings is often the first sign that a rodent has taken up residence in your home.
WHY YOU MIGHT HAVE RODENTS
Rodents are looking to make their way inside, away from the elements. The time of year and temperature could play a role in why they are taking up residence in your home, either to keep warm or cool or to find a place to nest during mating season. Rodents will also seek out food sources in your house, garage, and shed.
Rodents also need to find places and objects to grind their constantly growing teeth down on, as they are always growing, and the wood in or around your is the perfect material to do so.
REASONS TO TREAT YOUR RODENT PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY
While some rodents may be less physically threatening than others based on their disposition, all rodents pose a threat once inside your home. They may be carriers of diseases, bacteria, and viruses and the presence of rodent feces and urine can also pose a health risk to you and your family members if it ends up on your countertops, floors, and cabinets.
Also, some rodents such as mice or rats can procreate at a very alarming rate, in which you could end up with thousands of new creatures in your home within just a year by how quickly they can reproduce if left untreated, necessitating professional rodent control.
