3 Signs That You Have a Rodent Infestation

3 Signs That You Have a Rodent Infestation - Blog - Pest-EZ East - Rat

Mice are the lowliest of creatures and the most abhorred. Mice infestations are never fun, unless you are a rodent lover, which most are not. As a homeowner or even a renter, having a mouse infestation is costly. American households spend a whopping $6.5 billion on pest eradication services and have nearly 20,000 pest experts to choose from. Furthermore, statisticians estimate that the total amount of food stolen by or spoiled by vermin could feed around 200 million people. Those statistics are mind-boggling, so if you suspect an infestation of mice, but are not sure of your suspicions, here are three signs that you may have an infestation that you must end quickly.

Mouse droppings are present in your home

Mouse droppings (feces) are usually the first sign that you have an infestation, or maybe a lone wanderer in your home. Homeowners will usually find droppings inside cabinets or behind appliances that are used to cook or store foodstuffs. If you call out a pest exterminator, he or she will bait (or place sticky traps) these high-traffic areas to catch the furry invader of your home.

You are hearing noises where and when you shouldn't be

Noise is one of the first indicators that you have a mouse. When searching for signs of mice, wait until nightfall. Mice have a tendency to come out at night when it is dark and quiet. Listen carefully for the sounds of squeaking or scratching in the walls so you can try to pinpoint the source of the infestation.

You are smelling urine in places where your toilet isn’t

Rodent urine smells musky or musty and is potent so one can easily identify it. If the smell is lingering in rooms other than the bathroom, then it is clear you have an infestation to tackle.

Help! I’ve tried everything, but I can’t get rid of these pests!

Now you might try to deal with the infestation on your own, but there comes a point when you have to call for an exterminator help to ensure proper and thorough mice removal. Exterminators are essential when combating any infestation, and their services should be used to the fullest. Trust in the services of a pest control expert and rest easy knowing you won't meet any unwelcome guests in the dead of night.

    It went great. No more wasps after 48 hrs. And it took only 15 minutes to apply the treatment. The man that came (I forgot his name but I believe it's a small family business) was very serious and knowledgeable. Also he was the first one to respond and be able to show up after I contacted 4 or 5 different pest exterminators. Aliq, S. *
