Identifying A Rodent Problem
Rats and mice need to stay warm to survive the winter, just like you and me. A one-quarter inch hole is all that is necessary for a rodent to make your home its luxury winter getaway. Once inside, mice can cause problems by using your pantry as a choice feeding area, they also gnaw on the wood, burrow, and nest within your warm insulation, all the while spreading disease and droppings throughout your home.
The common house mouse is a typical problem here in West Michigan. Droppings, gnaw marks and urine odors are some of the tip-offs that you may have a rodent problem. Even a small infestation can leave thousands of dark colored droppings throughout your home. Sounds and odors are telltale signs that you may have a rodent problem on your hands.
Dropping are the most common sign that you have a problem. A typical adult mouse produces 50-75 dropping each day. You can find literally thousands of droppings from even a small infestation. Droppings appear as small black pieces of rice but with pointed ends.
Sounds and Odors
Other indicators that you may be dealing with a rodent problem are strong, musty odors, or a urine scent. Scratching and clawing are common sounds coming from within walls or the ceiling above or under floorboards. Cats and dogs may act excited at the areas rodents may be present.
Evidence of gnawing is a sign that you have a rodent problem. Rodents tend to gnaw on wooden structures such as corners, floor joists, and wall studs. Cardboard and cartons are also favorites for mice.
