Signs You Have a Rodent Infestation

Rodents are not only a nuisance but also pose potential health risks and property damage. Identifying the signs of a rodent infestation is crucial for taking prompt action and preventing further issues. At Wake Pest, Inc., we specialize in rodent control and want to help you recognize the indicators of a rodent problem. 

Here are the key signs to look out for:

  • Droppings: Rodent droppings are typically the most common signs of an infestation. These small, pellet-shaped droppings can be found along pathways, near food sources, or in hidden corners. Mouse droppings are approximately the size of a grain of rice, while rat droppings are larger, resembling small capsules.
  • Gnaw Marks: Rodents have a constant need to chew to keep their teeth from overgrowing. Look for gnaw marks on wood, plastic, electrical wires, or other materials. Fresh gnaw marks are light in color, while older ones may be darker and more noticeable.
  • Grease Marks: Rodents have oily fur, and as they navigate along walls, baseboards, or pipes, they can leave greasy marks behind. These marks may appear as dark smudges or streaks and are often found near entry points or along commonly traveled routes.
  • Unusual Pet Behavior: If your pets suddenly start displaying unusual behavior, such as excessive scratching, sniffing, or pawing at walls and furniture, it could be a sign of a rodent infestation. Animals have heightened senses and can often detect the presence of rodents before humans do.
  • Strange Noises: Rodents are typically nocturnal creatures, so you may hear scratching, scurrying, or squeaking noises during the night. Pay attention to sounds coming from walls, ceilings, attics, or crawlspaces. These noises can indicate rodent activity within your property.
  • Nests or Nesting Materials: Rodents create nests using various materials like shredded paper, fabric, insulation, or dried plant matter. Check concealed areas, such as attics, basements, or storage spaces, for signs of nests or the presence of nesting materials.
  • Chewed Food Packaging: Rodents contaminate food by gnawing through packaging materials. Look for chewed-through boxes, plastic bags, or food containers in your pantry or kitchen cabinets. The presence of chewed or damaged food packages is a strong indication of a rodent infestation.
  • Foul Odors: Rodents can generate unpleasant odors in their nests, urine, and feces. If you notice a persistent musty or ammonia-like smell in certain areas of your property, it could be a sign of a rodent infestation.
  • Sighting of Live or Dead Rodents: Finally, actually seeing live rodents or coming across dead rodents is a clear indication of an infestation. If you spot a mouse or rat during daylight hours, it may suggest a significant population. Dead rodents may be found in hidden areas or traps.

If you notice any of these signs, it's essential to address the rodent infestation promptly to prevent further damage and health risks. Reach out to the team at Wake Pest, Inc., for professional rodent control services. Our experienced technicians can assess the situation, implement effective treatments, and provide guidance on rodent prevention measures to safeguard your property.

How to Prevent Rodent Infestations 

Once our professional team has gotten rid of all your rodents, you will be breathing a giant sigh of relief. But how do you make sure that these pesky invaders don’t return? Our experts have collected a list of some of the best techniques for keeping these mice and rats at bay for good. 

You can prevent these rodents from entering your home by:

  • Sealing all entryways – Tiny cracks in your foundation or openings in windows are essentially wide-open doors for rodents. By sealing off all possible points of access, you drastically reduce their chances of entering.
  • Keeping all areas sanitized – Any food that you have should be properly sealed and stored away in cabinets and containers. You should also take extra care to clean any areas where food is prepared or eaten, as crumbs and other food left behind makes a great meal for these scavengers.
  • Securing trash – Rodents won’t think twice about rummaging through your trash, so make sure all lids are secure.

If you have tried these tips and still are experiencing a rodent problem, don’t delay calling Wake Pest any longer. We are ready to offer a dedicated solution for thorough rodent control in Wake Forest.
