How Can I Tell If Rodents Are Damaging My Home?

Mice, rats, and other Western Massachusetts rodents can cause a lot of damage to your home. They can gnaw on support beams, insulation, and even wires - which creates a fire hazard. Not to mention the fact that they can spread disease. What's more, these pests are excellent at hiding in hard-to-reach places. So, how can you tell if you have a rodent problem?

Here are some telltale signs: 

  • Droppings: One of the surest signs that you have a rodent problem is the presence of droppings. Rodents usually leave droppings wherever they travel, so if you find them in your home, it's a good indicator that rodents have been there too. Look in areas like the attic, crawl space, basement, and behind appliances.
  • Gnaw Marks: Another way to tell if rodents have been in your home is by looking for gnaw marks. Rodents need to gnaw constantly to keep their teeth from growing too long, so they'll often gnaw on anything they can find - including wires, insulation, and support beams.
  • Nests: Mice and rats will often build nests out of anything they can find—including paper towels, insulation, and fabric. Check in dark places like closets, behind furniture, and in the attic for signs of a nest.
  • Sounds: Mice and rats are relatively quiet creatures, but you may be able to hear them scurrying around your home at night. If you hear any strange noises coming from your walls or ceilings, it's worth investigating to see if there are any rodents present.

If you see any of these signs in your home, it's time to call in help from the professionals. These pests can cause a lot of damage to your home and spread disease, so it's vital to take action as soon as possible if you think you have an infestation. The most efficient way to eliminate them is to call a professional rodent exterminator for help.

Rodents Cause Property Damage And Spread Disease

When you think of pests, you may not think of rodents as being particularly damaging. But in reality, they can cause much damage to your property, especially if they are left unchecked. They chew through wires and insulation, destroying your property, and they can also spread diseases. Some of the dangerous diseases spread by rodents include:

  • Salmonellosis
  • Rate-bite fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome 

All these diseases can be serious, so it's crucial to call a professional right away if you think you have a rodent infestation. At American Pest Solutions, we understand the importance of eliminating these pests quickly and safely. That's why we offer efficient pest control services tailored to meet your needs. We will work with you to identify problem areas, eliminate existing infestations, and take preventive measures to keep rodents from returning.

Why It Is So Hard To Get Rid Of Rodents On Your Own

Occasionally, we will get a call from a customer who has been trying to rid their home of rodents on their own. They'll tell us that they've tried everything, but those pesky creatures just keep coming back. The truth is, it can be incredibly difficult to eliminate rodents on your own for a few reasons.

The first thing you need to understand is that rodents are prolific breeders. A female mouse can have litters of up to 12 babies multiple times per year, and a rat can have litters of up to 24 babies. So, even if you think you've gotten rid of all the rodents in your home, there's a good chance there are more where they came from.

The second issue is that rodents are very good at finding food and shelter. They can squeeze through tiny openings—even an opening as small as a quarter. It's important to make sure to seal your home completely. You should fill any cracks or holes in your walls or foundation and caulk any gaps around doors or windows. Otherwise, these little pests will just keep finding their way back in.

Finally, even if you do take all the necessary precautions, sometimes things outside of your control can still lead to a rodent infestation. For example, construction work near your home can disrupt rodent burrows and cause them to seek shelter elsewhere. Or, if there's a drought and food becomes scarce, rats and mice will start venturing into homes and businesses in search of sustenance. That's why it's always best to partner with a professional pest control company like American Pest Solutions. We can help you prevent an infestation before it starts, and we're always here to help if things take a turn for the worse.
