Rat Control Service Shares 3 Signs of Mice, Dothan, Alabama

Mice and rodents can cause severe problems in any home. They spread disease, and can even destroy the building’s structure. If you notice any telltale signs of mice, you should call in a residential pest control professional right away. But how can you know that you have a rodent infestation if you never see one? These pests often leave signs to let you know they’ve been there, so keep your eyes peeled for any of the following signs that you need mice or rat control service.

3 Indicators of Mice in Your Building

1. Droppings

You’ll most likely find rodent droppings around food packages, in hidden areas, in drawers and cupboards, or under sinks. Most mice leave the greatest number of droppings around a nest, so check out the surrounding area for any unwanted inhabitants. Call a professional pest company for mice or rat control services, definitive answers, and assistance. 

2. Gnawing

rat controlWhen you have a new rodent infestation, you’ll likely see light-colored gnaw marks on food packages or the building structure. Keep an eye open for marks that seem to appear overnight and carefully consider their size. If you notice very small marks, you likely have a mouse problem. However, the larger teeth of rats will make larger marks.

3. Tracks

Active rodents will leave tracks and runways in your home. To find these marks, use a flashlight in any suspected area. You’ll notice smudge marks, footprints, or even urine stains. If you’re not convinced that the area is inhabited by rodents, you can try placing a thin layer of flour, as they’ll leave much more distinctive tracks in it.
