How to detect rodent infestations
When you have rodents in your home it’s generally pretty easy to detect. You’ll usually hear them at night either in your attic, walls, or see them running across the fence/power lines behind your home. To find out how deep the infestation goes in your home, you need to look in the spaces that mice and rats like living.
This means inspecting all of the cabinets in your home for rat droppings. These droppings resemble dark grains of rice and they’re pretty easy to spot. You also want to inspect your basement and attic. Especially in the corners, behind boxes, etc. Any area that a rodent could burrow. While you may not find the actual rodent during your inspection, pay special attention to look for chew marks and droppings. If you find these, it’s very important to get a pest control specialist to come and treat your home.
How to prevent rodent infestations
Once you have an infestation, you need a pro to get rid of them effectively. The reason is because they can burrow in walls, nest in attics, and generally hunker down in spaces that require professionals to truly get rid of the problem.
However, if you don’t have them in your home but you’re noticing them around your house, there are things you can do to prevent them from infesting your home.
Make sure there are no open holes, uncovered grates, or easy entrances to your home. If there are, then make sure to plug them up right away. You also want to make sure there are no food sources for the rodents around your home. This means keeping your dried cereals and other items in sealed containers. Also, make sure there are no piles of trash in your yard and that your trash cans are covered. As long as you keep your house fortified and remove the food/water sources from around your home, the rodents will generally stay away.
Are mice dangerous?
Mice are timid animals that typically don’t bite or scratch people. They like to stay away from you more than you want to stay away from them. However, they do carry diseases such as the Hantavirus which can be transferred to you or your family members through mutually touched surfaces.
Since mice enjoy human food, it’s common to have them invading you cereal cabinets. This is dangerous because they can contaminate foods without your knowledge and, when you eat them, you run the risk of getting very sick.
In addition to them spreading diseases, they also chew through things and cause damage to your home. They can chew through wires in your walls which exposes them and causes fire hazards, they chew through boxes in your attic, and they can chew through just about anything around your home if given enough time.
With that, the actual mouse itself isn’t going to harm you but they are still dangerous due to the diseases they can spread and the damage they can inflict on your home.
