 How do I know if I have a rodent in my home?

Rodents are nocturnal creatures by nature, which means they rarely surface during the daytime hours unless their environment is disrupted. However, there are some signs you can look for:

  • Mouse droppings, black, typically small (about 1/8 of an inch long). Rat feces tend to be a bit larger.
  • Evidence of recent gnawing, especially on packaged goods, cardboard boxes and areas around pipes, ducts and vents.
  • Your dog or cat pawing excitedly at a kitchen cabinet, the base of your refrigerator or a wall.
  • Scampering or gnawing sounds.
  • Burrows or nests in the ground along the outside of buildings.
