Here at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control, we know that your home is important to you, and we want to help you take the best possible care of it. When it comes to your home, one of the most upsetting things that can happen is for it to develop a rodent problem. The key to dealing with rodent infestation is to take action quickly, before the pests can get a strong foothold in your space. To help you know when it’s time to call for rodent control services, in this article we’ll be going over three signs of rodent activity to watch out for.
- Scratching Noises. One sign that you probably need to call a rodent control team like ours at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control is scratching or scampering noises in your walls and ceilings. This is especially true if those noises happen mostly at night, when rats will be at their most active.
- Droppings and Odors. Two more signs that you need rodent control services are actual rat droppings and the strong odor of their urine. If you notice droppings around your home, you definitely have a rodent problem, and many droppings usually indicate a large infestation. In addition, rodent urine produces a strong, musky odor that you will definitely notice.
- Unusual Pet Behavior. Another place you can look for signs that you need to call rodent control services is your pets. Both cats and dogs have sensitive ears and noses that will alert them to rodent activity before it becomes apparent to any humans in the house, and you may see them start to act differently. If your pets seem extremely alert or start to bark, meow, or paw at the spaces under your appliances, we at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control recommend giving us a call to get a professional inspection.
