To preserve your home’s habitability and cleanliness, you must recognize early signs of infestations and contact an exterminator before they get more serious. In addition to removing pests from your property, exterminators provide support along the way.
Our clients are frequently already experiencing the negative effects of pest infestations by the time we get involved. In the following paragraphs, we outline the common signs of infestations, along with what you can do to confirm your suspicions.
A mouse running across the floor or droppings in the kitchen are signs that you should call an exterminator. The incontinent nature of mice will eventually lead to droppings being left behind. Droppings on the floor are easy to overlook. However, if you find one on top of the cooker or behind the microwave, then you know you have a mouse problem.
Mice are also known to chew through food packaging. However, don’t be confused by the breakdown of old biodegradable plastic.
Some of our clients report that their dog or cat first alerted them to the problem. Pets that become erratic might smell rodents, cockroaches, or hear noises under floorboards or inside walls. They will start sniffing at the kickboards or scratching the floorboards.
It is possible that they see a pest running around and start barking and chasing it away. However, by the time we notice, it may be too late.
In this case, it is advisable to check the back of the washer or underneath the sink unit for mouse droppings. A lot of droppings indicate a long-running situation. Calling a mice exterminator will always be the best course of action.
