Rodents are North America’s most common household pests, with more than 80 million homes having them. These little critters can take up residence in just about any area of your house, including inside walls, under the flooring, or behind appliances. Unfortunately, they can also be transported from one part of your home to another by humans or pets—and even cause damage along their path!
Rodents are found in all environments and are highly adaptable. Even if you have never seen a rodent in your home, it doesn’t mean they are not around. Rodents can live in tiny spaces and hide from humans by using their sense of smell to find food. They also can go unnoticed because they’re nocturnal (meaning they’re active at night).
If you suspect rodents in your property or apartment building, look for signs of their presence. Some indications of rodents include holes chewed into wood floors or walls, droppings on countertops or cabinets, and food crumbs in places where rodents like to hide during the day. You may not see them at first, but if you do notice them around your home—or even worse: in your house—it’s time to contact us immediately.
