We all are aware of the fact that rodents are such sneaky critters. They can fit through even very tiny spaces to get to new homes and food sources. That’s why wherever they walk, rodents will often leave some evidence of their presence. If you pay full attention to this evidence, then you can find out rodent infestation on the initial level itself. Some of the evidence to notice is given below:
Rub Marks- If you are finding any type of dark, greasy rub marks on the bottoms of walls, then it indicates that a mouse has been traveling on your premises.
Unpleasant smell- Are you observing any stinky or sour smell that comes from some hidden place in the home? Well! It may be coming from rodent urine and faces. In this thing, your pet can be your saviour because they may detect this change before you. So, if you notice that your cat or dog is acting strangely around a previously normal place in the home, then you must call a professional and conduct an investigation of your premise.
Scratching Sounds- If you notice any voices and appearance of rodents in the home during the day. Then chances would be high that their numbers have likely grown to a bigger point. This marks that they don’t forage for food only at night-time. For more signs, you may also hear scratching or scuffling noises in your walls or ceiling to get a clear idea.
Rodent Nest- Any appearance of a rodent nest is a perfect sign of an infestation, present or former.
