Signs of a Rodent Infestation
Rodents are noisy and destructive. If you have an infestation, you’ll eventually begin to notice. 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.
- Nests: Rodents build nests from a collection of materials, often in attics or crawlspaces.
Rodents can also leave greasy marks along pathways and near entrances. They’ll also urinate in your walls and throughout your home, eventually generating noticeable odor. Their presence in your home can harm your pets and your family as well.
The Damage Caused by Rodents
Mice and rats cause similar damage and are known vectors for disease and bacteria, including hantavirus. 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
In Phoenix, the most common rodents include the black rat, roof rat, deer mouse and the house mouse. The type of rodent plays a significant role in removing the infestation. You may be able to tell whether you have mice or rats based on 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.
