Rodents are a problem that almost all homeowners have to deal with at some point. However, even if you aren’t sure if you have a pest problem, it’s best to get your home inspected by an exterminator. Exterminators will be able to see the signs of a rodent infestation before you will, and can stop the problem right in its tracks. Not only do rodents indicate a possible problem with the outside structure of your home, but they are also harbingers of disease and can carry smaller pests, like fleas and ticks. Because rats and mice can give birth so quickly, one mouse can turn into 40 in just a month. That is a story of an infestation gone terribly wrong, and it’s the reason that you want to catch a rodent infestation as soon as possible.
You should always look out for signs of a rodent infestation so you’re ready to call an exterminator if need be. Signs include scratching, holes in food containers, pellet-like droppings around the home, and squeaking/rustling in the walls. If you have any of these signs, let your local exterminator know immediately. You don’t want to end up with a full-fledged infestation, because that will be much harder to extract.
If you want to take some preventative measures, store food in glass containers and ensure that there are no holes in the outside structure of your house. For extra security, setting out a few freestanding mousetraps is a good measure. However, if you end up with a mouse in your house despite all these measures, the exterminator should be the next place you turn.
