Seeing a mouse or scurry across your kitchen floor can put a damper on your morning pretty fast. Although it may be tempting to run out and buy a mousetrap, home infestations require proper rodent control administered by a team of professional exterminators. Failing to act fast increases the risk of your personal property and valuables being destroyed since rodents love to chew through wires and furniture. Even worse, having these dirty critters running around your house potentially exposes you and your family to a host of diseases rodents can carry.

How Do I Tell If Rodents Are in My Home?

Learning to inspect your home or commercial property for rodent infestation will allow you to identify the specific rodent wreaking havoc in your home and will help prevent future infestations for the years to come. 
This species comes in a variety of types, being able to pinpoint exactly what rodent you’re dealing with can help exterminators speed up the treatment process. 

When conducting a thorough inspection, there are some key things to keep in mind including the type of rodent invading your home, how bad the infestation is, and the whereabouts of their nests. 
Some of the possible causes that could be  responsible for infestation include:

  • Lack of hygiene and sanitation, especially concerning areas with food
  • Poor garbage storage
  • Water supply  (Rodents gravitate towards water sources to prevent dehydration)
  • Poorly sealed windows, which allow rodents access inside your home

With so many hiding places, rodents can easily remain out of sight. Because of this, by the time you do notice them an infestation has already probably taken place. To protect your family from health and other deleterious effects that come from having these creatures inside your home contact your Chapel Hill pest exterminators today at (919) 231-3292!

Even though each type of rodent can be different, the tell-tale signs that they have invaded your home are primarily the same. From the occasional droppings to large holes ripped into garbage bags, homeowners noticing this can probably assume the worst. Have you heard squeaking lately or activity going on inside your walls? Rodents love cupboards and kitchen pantries, so keep an eye and ear out for these particular areas. As for materials used for nesting, rodents have used anything from shredded paper, fabric, and packing from grocery items. For cat or dog owners, if your pet starts excitedly reacting for no apparent reason, their keen sense of smell could be on to other critters potential lurking inside your home. 

How Do You Tell If You Have Rodents in Your Walls?
