Happy Valley homes can be particularly vulnerable to rodent infestation in these colder winter months. When small pests like mice and rats make themselves at home in your crawlspaces, attics, basements, and walls, often your best course of action is to contact the professionals at Wildwoods Pest Control. Before you call us for an inspection, look for these signs that your home is indeed infested with rodents.
If you can audibly identify the tiny paws of rodents scurrying around the darker corners of your home, you can be certain that rats or mice are nesting somewhere.
The tiny black pellets left behind in the wake of a rodent infestation are easy to identify. They are between about ¼-inch and 3/4- inch, and fresh droppings are dark and shiny while old droppings are chalky and dry.
Rodents often leave behind a strong musty smell; if you trace an odor in addition to identifying droppings and scurrying, call a professional immediately.
The best action to take when a mouse or rat control problem arises is to call Wildwoods Pest Control Services. Wildwoods has served Happy Valley’s communities for several years and can create timely and effective solutions to all your rodent control issues.
