Signs of a Rodent Infestation

Rodents will typically enter your home in search of food and shelter. They are noisy and destructive, and their presence in your home can harm your pets and your family. Evidence of a rodent infestation includes:

  • Noises: You will likely hear scratching and squeaking noises in the walls and attic.
  • Droppings: Rodents will leave droppings, especially near nests and food sources.
  • Damage: Rodents can chew through wood, drywall, electrical components, insulation, and much more. When wires are chewed, this can even lead to fires.
  • Nests: Rodents build nests from a collection of materials, often in attics or crawl spaces.

Rodents can also leave greasy marks along pathways and near entrances. They’ll also urinate in your walls and throughout your home, eventually generating a noticeable odor. 

If you notice these signs, it’s important to address the infestation sooner, rather than later. Rodents can multiply so quickly that a relatively small problem can turn into a large one faster than you might imagine.

Problems Caused by Rodents

Mice and rats both cause damage, and are known vectors for disease and bacteria, including hantavirus, the West Nile Virus—even the plague. They’ll gnaw through furniture, walls, and insulation to nest and create pathways. From your attic to your basement, mice and rats will make their way throughout your home. They will find their way into food sources, including yours and your pets, eating a little and contaminating the rest. 

The best way to tell whether you have mice or rats (or both) is an inspection by a professional rodent exterminator.

Differences Between Mice and Rats

Rats can enter your home through spaces as small as a quarter, and mice only need a space as big as a dime. In Phoenix, the most common rodents include the black rat/roof rat, deer mouse, and the house mouse. The types of rodents you have in your home or business will play a significant role in how the infestation should be removed.

You may be able to tell whether you have mice or rats based upon evidence they’ve left behind or from a direct sighting. Some of the key differences between mice and rats include:

  • Size: Mice and rats vary significantly in size. Black rats can get up to 18 inches long, while mice typically remain below four inches in length.
  • Ears: Mice and rats have distinctively different ears. Mice ears are large and round while rat ears are small and closer to the head.
  • Tails: Rats are known for their long, scaly tails. Mouse tails tend to be thin and covered in short hairs.

Frequently Asked Questions about Rodent Control

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), they can spread plenty of dangerous diseases, both directly and indirectly. They can directly spread, for example, the plague, rat-bite fever, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome and much more. They can indirectly spread diseases because people can get infected by ticks and fleas, for example, that have fed on a diseased rodent’s blood. Those diseases include the West Nile Virus, lyme disease, La Crosse encephalitis and much more.  The bottom line is that there’s no easy way to tell, ahead of time, which rodents carry diseases. So, the solution is to get rid of rats and mice, having them professionally removed from your home and/or business.
The black rat (also called the roof rat) is pretty commonly found in Arizona. This rodent has a dark brown or black color, with a tail that’s longer than it’s entire body. When you combine the length of this rat with its long, hairless tail, the result can be a rodent that’s 18 inches long. The deer mouse is smaller, but can spread hantavirus quite easily. An infected mouse would leave behind urine, feces, and/or saliva—and if someone in your family breathed in dust that was tainted by this waste, they could become infected. The house mouse is also quite common in Arizona and, despite its small size, each one can drop feces 50 times a day.  Unfortunately, these aren’t the only types of rodents you might find in your home or business. The pack rat is yet another example of one that can be found in Arizona. These can be quite hazardous because of the feces and urine that accumulate in their living areas.  Trained technicians at Green Home Pest Control can provide rat control services, no matter which types have found a way into your home.
