  • Urine or Droppings – If you notice unexplained droppings or pools of urine around your home, call rodent control right away. The most common areas to see these dropping are in cupboards, kitchen cabinets, or pantries. Any place with food is a likely target for rodents.
  • Tracks – Rodents like mice and rats will use the same trail and runway to transport food back to their nest. If you notice foot tracks or a path that looks well-traveled, consider calling rodent control.
  • Rodent Sightings & Sounds – An obvious sign that you need rodent control is if you see them in plain sight, or you hear them. Rodent sounds often sound like scratching on the walls or squeaking. You can often find rodents anywhere that food is present.
  • Nests – A rodent’s nest will often be made up of fuzzy materials such as fabric, or stuffing that’s in furniture, along with twigs and grass. Their nests are often in places with food and water where they think can’t be found and are safe.
