Thus it is quite important to find out whether your house has been infested by rodents or not.
Here Casey Building Consultants has jotted down this following list of 5 common signs of rodent infestation to help determine if your home is indeed infested with rodents.
1.Strange Midnight Noises: If you hear strange noises in your house especially at midnight, chances are they are rodents rather than a ghost. They generally love to loom when human activities goes off. Thus small chirping or squeaks in your room or attic can be a good indicator.
2. Small Black Droppings: One of the most common signs of a rodent infestation is droppings. These black droppings are often seen in kitchen cabinets or pantries. Besides these mouse feces can be seen at the damp corners of the rooms. If you find so, it’s time to be alerted.
3. Chewing marks: Rodents are prone of chewing by nature. So if you find any material such as papers, plastic, lead pipes or any wooden products with small gnaw marks on it, it indicates they are here.
4. Sharp paw scratches: Just like chewing, they have a common knack scratch their sharp paws on tender and soft products like soap bars or cardboards. So such scratch marks would also indicate their existence.
5. An actual one: Rodents breed rapidly. So if you spot one in your house, chances are there is more hiding.
