The Warning Signs of Rodent Infestations

Early detection of a rodent infestation can help prevent further damage. Here are some red flags that property owners can keep an eye out for: 

  • Droppings: These small, pellet-like droppings are usually found in areas where food is stored, such as pantries or cupboards. Regularly inspect these areas, especially if you notice any food items that have been disturbed.
  • Gnaw marks: If you notice gnaw marks on food containers, furniture, or structures, it could indicate a rodent presence. Rodents have strong teeth that can gnaw through various materials, including plastic and wood.
  • Scratching sounds: Hearing scratching sounds can be a sign of rodents moving around in your property. These noises may come from walls or ceilings and could indicate that rodents are nesting or traveling through these areas.
  • Nests: Rodents build nests using materials like shredded paper, fabric, or insulation. Finding these nests in secluded areas such as attics, basements, or behind appliances can signal an infestation.

The Risks of Rodent Infestations

Rodent infestations pose several risks, including:

  • Property damage: The gnawing activity of rodents can damage structures and wiring. This can lead to costly repairs and even increase the fire risk if electrical wires are damaged. Rodents can also cause structural damage by burrowing and building nests within walls or insulation.
  • Health risks: Rodents can spread diseases through their droppings, urine, or saliva. Direct contact isn't always necessary as these pathogens can become airborne and inhaled. While not common, preventive action should still be taken ASAP. 
  • Food contamination: Rodents often raid pantries and can spread diseases to any food they come into contact with. This not only leads to food loss but also poses a serious health risk to anyone consuming the contaminated food.
  • Stress: The presence of rodents in your home can lead to anxiety and sleeplessness. The simple loss of peace of mind and the sense of panic people may feel when they sense animal movement is reason enough to take timely action.

How Rodents Get into Your Home or Business

Rodents are primarily attracted to properties due to the availability of food and shelter. Open food sources, unsealed garbage bins, and pet food can attract rodents. They also seek out warm, secluded areas for nesting.

Rodents are capable of squeezing through tiny openings to gain access to buildings. Therefore, any cracks, holes, or gaps in your property's structure can serve as entry points for these pests. Regular inspections and maintenance can help prevent a rodent infestation and protect your property, your health, and the local environment. 

Rodents and the Eco-System

Rodents, while often viewed as pests, play a vital role in our ecosystem. They contribute to soil aeration and seed dispersal and serve as a food source for various predators. It’s when they encroach onto our space that action needs to be taken. However, the prescription should never cause long-term damage. 

At Heritage Pest, we understand the importance of maintaining ecological balance. That's why we use environmentally responsible rodent control methods. Our treatments are designed to effectively manage rodent populations without adversely affecting the surrounding environment.
