Signs Of Rodents In Maryland Homes
One of the worst parts about rodents is that infestations can be difficult to identify, allowing them to go on damaging your property for months without your knowledge. With that in mind, it’s important to know the warning signs rodents leave behind so you can get help eliminating them as soon as possible.
Here are some warning signs that your home could have come under rodent infestation.
Gnaw marks: Rats and mice have very strong teeth that never stop growing, causing them to constantly gnaw on objects to wear them down. Gnaw marks are usually found in baseboards and wall corners, inside closets, along doors and wood/vinyl/concrete, inside trash cans, in the roof line, in attic vents, and behind/under appliances and other areas frequently visited by rodents.
Rub marks: Rats and mice have oily fur that leaves marks when they rub up against surfaces. These are often found along the baseboards, under door frames, in crawl space screens, around exterior door/window frames, and in pipeways and cables entering walls/ceilings.
Droppings: Rodent droppings are brown, less than an inch in length, with pointed ends. Rodents also leave shiny urine marks that are visible on some surfaces.
Footprints/tracks: Rodents leave tracks as they scurry about. They can be identified by the front 4-toed print and the hind 5-toed print.
Burrows: Rodent burrows are typically found in earthen banks, under concrete slabs and under walls.
Entry points: Rodents only need a hole less than the size of a quarter in diameter in order to get inside. Evidence of structural/sanitation deficiencies conducive to activity or neighboring structures is a common warning sign that entry points are present.
Noise: reported noises in walls/ceilings but no other signs of any pest or wildlife activity could indicate rodents activity inside.
Sightings: Sightings of rodents usually occur when they are mostly active during night or early morning and late afternoon. Seeing a live or dead rodent inside your home is a certain sign that more are nearby.
If you’ve noticed these warning signs around your home, contact us immediately for help. During your initial inspection, the presence of these factors will help us determine where rodents are most active throughout your home so that we can isolate them and remove them from the home as quickly and effectively as possible. After the inspection, the technician will explain his findings and can usually provide treatment the same day.
