Do I Have a Rodent Infestation?
How to Detect Rodent Infestation in Your House?
Rodents (rats and mice) not only cause a lot of damage to property but also pose serious health risks to humans. Therefore, if you notice any sign of rodent infestation in your home, get professional help immediately. Edmonton Exterminators has been providing pest control services to clients since 1979. Our exterminators are experienced in dealing with a variety of pests, including rodents, wasps and bed bugs.
Here a few signs of rodent infestation in your home:
· Bite marks
If you notice bite marks on your pantry items or edges of any wooden structure in your home, it’s a sign that there are rodents in your home. Rodents might also chew up wiring, insides of your attic area and walls.
If there is a rodent infestation in your home, you might notice droppings under your sinks, drawers, cupboards and near food.
· Foul odour
Cats, dogs and pet rats are likely to become excited and very active in the areas with rodents. This is because of the foul odour that occurs when rodents recently enter your home. If you notice your pets are pawing at areas where they were not interested before, inspect for rodents. If the rodent population has increased, you can detect the smell yourself. This is an indication of rodent infestation in your home.
Rodents make nests using fuzzy, soft or warm materials (such as furniture stuffing, paper, fabric materials, grass, twigs and so on). These nests can be found in boxes, floors and cabinets that are usually located near water or food sources and in places that are safe from predators.
· Visual sightings
Rodents usually come out of their hiding places for food and water. If you notice a rat in your house during the day, it could be an indication that their population has increased substantially.
