Spot Pests With These Tell-Tale Signs

So, you think you’ve got pests in your home?

No one ever wants to uncover a pest infestation but, unfortunately, they can’t be completely prevented. Thankfully, they are very easy to deal with once you have found the infestation. But that’s the tricky bit! Some homeowners go for years without noticing all of the pests that share their home!

Are you worried that you might be living with some unwanted house guests? Here are some useful signs that you should look out for.

You Hear Scratching In Your Home

Have you or anyone else in your family heard any scratching or other sounds in your home? If so, then it sounds like you might have an infestation of rats or mice on your hands! The usual sounds to listen for include scratching, squeaking, and gnawing. You will probably hear these noises coming out of your attic or other upstairs areas that don’t get a lot of foot traffic. If you have a basement, you might also hear noises from down there.

You Could See Droppings

As well as hearing noises, you might spot some animal droppings. Of course, these are a sign of mice and rats, and you might find both fecal matter and urine. Unfortunately, the waste matter from smaller pests, especially insects, can be a lot harder to spot. It is necessary to check in your spare bedrooms and other rooms that are rarely used regularly so that you can find any droppings in these areas.

There Could Be Damage To Furniture

If you notice any damage to your furniture and belongings, there is a chance that this could be from pests. Rats and mice might gnaw wooden furniture while other insects and pests might try to burrow in to find a place to breed and lay their eggs. Termites are commonly found in wooden furniture, and if you think that you have them in your home, you should arrange a termite inspection to get the issue sorted as soon as possible. Termites can breed very quickly and what is originally a small pest problem could quickly turn into a major issue!

You Might Find Evidence of Nesting

After they move into your home, rodents will make nests for themselves out of anything they can find. And you might find evidence of this around your home. For example, you could find shredded paper, scrunched up leaves, and grass around your home. If you do find this evidence of nesting, you will need to look for the nest so you can then rid your home of rodents. Most of the time, rats and mice will create their nests in discreet places, such as under the floorboards and in between the gaps in walls.

Make sure you keep your eyes peeled so that you spot these tell-tale signs. Once you realize you have pests or rodents, you can then contact a pest control company to come and solve the problem for you.

So, why not take a look around your home today to see if you spot any evidence of pests!?
