It’s that time of the year again when being inside sounds a whole lot better than being out in the freezing cold. Unfortunately, rats and mice have much the same feelings toward the winter as humans. Rodents all across the Northern Hemisphere are currently looking for cracks in your foundation or small holes in the wall that they can squeeze through to make an indoor home for themselves this winter.
As you probably already know, rodents can multiply quickly, which means a small rodent infestation can go from a minor hassle to a major issue in a matter of weeks. Here are some signs that you need to call us ASAP for rodent control in Alaska:
- You actually see a rodent: There’s no better evidence that you have a rodent infestation than witnessing a rat or mouse scurry across your floor. While it may not seem that bad if you only see a single rodent, you’ve got to assume there’s more than just one of the pests in your home. Contact us to schedule a visit to your home to be sure we eliminate all of the rodents before they start to multiply.
- You see droppings: Small rodent droppings around your home are a telltale sign that you’ve got visitors. If you see anything that you think may be rodent droppings, contact us right away for rodent control in Alaska. You’ll usually find their droppings around food packages, under the sink or in your drawers and cupboards. Droppings are not only unsightly; the bacteria in rodent droppings can also be harmful to your health.
- You notice teeth marks: All rodents need to constantly gnaw on things to ensure their teeth don’t grow too long. Rats and mice living inside your home are big fans of chewing up your wood furniture and baseboards in order to keep their teeth short. We know you love your furniture and want to keep it looking brand new; contact us to remove any pest that might affect the appearance of your wood. Pay attention in your kitchen, too, as rodents will also chew on food packaging in order to get inside the package and have a nice meal.
- You find shredded paper or cloth: Mice and rats love to rip up paper and cloth to make tiny homes for themselves. If you start seeing shredded paper on the floor, or notice that your books or papers have been chewed up, there’s a good chance that you’ve got some kind of rodent infestation.
- You hear them at night: Rodents can compress their ribcages and slip inside even the tiniest cracks in the wall. If your rodent problem is bad enough, don’t be surprised if you hear them scurrying around inside your walls and air ducts at night when you’re lying in bed!
Make sure it’s only you and your family staying cozy in your home this winter, and not rats or mice! Contact Pied Piper Pest Control right away if you think you may have an infestation and need rodent control in Alaska.
