Rodent infestation causes several health hazards, especially for pets and children. And as a homeowner, you must be cautious as it has become a common issue in Vancouver. If this infestation takes place in your home, you should immediately call pest exterminators for rodent control. But how would you identify?
Well, this blog has highlighted a few signs of rodent infestation, which you must be aware of these first.
Signs That Rodent Has Invaded Your Home
Fresh rodent droppings are moist and dark. When they are dried, they become gray and easily crumble when touched. You will find rodent droppings near food packages, in drawers, under the sink, other hidden areas, etc. And if these creatures build nests in your home, you will find the highest number of droppings around these.
Gnaw marks are usually lighter in colour and become dark when they age. You will find these on food packaging or the structure of your home. If the marks are large, it indicates that larger rodents have invaded your house.
If your home is affected by rodent infestation, you will get the foul odour of rodent’s urine. And it usually occurs when they recently enter a home. If you observe that your pets are pawing some areas where they had no interest before, examine the places immediately. If the infestation is severe, you may detect a stale ammonia smell. In this situation, you will have no option other than resorting to a reputed pest control service.
If you hear scratching noises, it can be an indication that rodents are in your house. You may hear them scurrying beneath the floor and around the cabinets. You may hear them making squeaking noises.
There will Be Tracks and Runways
If rodents are active in your home, their runways will be distinctive and become faint as time passes. You can easily detect these with a flashlight in the suspected areas. You will see smudge marks, urine stains, footprints, etc.
You will Find Nests
Rodents use materials, such as fabrics, shredded papers to build their nests. If you find these materials scattered in your house, it indicates the presence of their nests.
