Reliable Rodent Control in your Villanova Home

Rodents can cause damage to your home and carry several health risks to your family. Being able to identify an infestation of mice, rats, or other rodents is the first step in getting rid of the pests.

Identifying an Infestation rodent

You don't have to see a mouse or other rodent to be able to identify an infestation. Often the first sign is finding droppings in cabinets or other dark, hidden places. You may also notice nests made of shredded paper or small holes in the walls along baseboards.

Rodent droppings are easy to identify. The droppings are small and black in color. They can be found in storage areas and along baseboards in the home. You may also hear scratching or other noises inside the walls if a mouse, squirrel, or rat has taken up residence in your home. Rodents can chew through walls, wires, and may destroy stored paperwork or clothing very quickly. There are also other hazards to be aware of.

Health Hazards to Avoid

Rodents frequently visit food storage areas to find crumbs or to chew through bags of dried goods for an easy meal. Rodent droppings in the home are linked to several different illnesses. For example, deer mice cause a potentially fatal illness in humans when dust containing droppings is inhaled. In some cases, you may see mice or other rodents in the home. The number you see out in the open is typically only a small fraction of the number of rodents in the home.
