Signs You May Have a Rodent in Your Home

Pest Control Prince Frederick MDDo you think you may have a rodent or many rodents in your home? We have put together a list of signs rodents may be living in your house:

  • Rodent Droppings – You may not see much of them, but you will not be able to miss rodent droppings around your home. Droppings are most often found in kitchen cabinets, pantries, and other places where food is stored. You may also see small gnaw marks on your food packaging.
  • Noises in the Walls – Turn everything off in your home and pay attention to the little sounds going on in your home. If you are hearing scurrying noises in your wall, you may have a rodent or a family of rodents in your home.
  • Nests in Secluded Areas – If you want to check for rodents in your home, start looking for nests in secluded areas in your home. You can search your ceiling, dark spots in the basement, or any other area that is dark and out of the way. Typical rodent nests consist of shredded paper and fabrics.
