Warning Signs of a Rodent Infestation On Your Property
Are you unsure whether you have rodents on your property? There are a couple of signs that you can look out for that will help you determine whether you need to consult professional rodent removal services in your New Jersey home.
Signs of a rodent infestation inside your home or on your yard include:
- Rodent droppings
- Smells of urine in your home or on your yard
- Gnawed holes
- Rodent nests
- Unusual pet behavior around certain areas of your home
- Scratching or scampering sounds
- Sounds of running or scratching behind your walls
- Grease or dirt marks along your walls
- Rodent runways
- Signs of chewing on food packages
If you notice any of these signs in your home, or outside in your yard, it is important to contact our rodent exterminators as soon as you can. Leaving a rodent infestation unnoticed can lead to costly damages, and puts you and your loved ones at risk of catching a disease. Did you know that rodents are known to carry and transmit more than 35diseases worldwide?
Diseases that may be transmitted by rodents include the following, and more:
- Lyme disease
- Colorado tick fever
- Rat-bite fever
Dealing with Rodents Inside Your Home
House mice are the most common rodent pests found in New Jersey homes. They have large ears, short hair, and pointed noses. Much smaller than rats and squirrels, house mice are a mere three inches long. They vary in color from light brown to black. Because they are nearsighted, they keep close to walls. They are also excellent climbers.
House mice prefer spaces that are:
- Small or tight
Signs of house mice in your home include mouse droppings, greasy or dirty streaks along your walls and baseboards, signs of gnawing or chewing in food cupboards, and signs of nests. You may also hear scratching or running behind your walls. If you suspect you have a mouse infestation, do not worry. We can help you.
Another common household rodent pest is the rat. These are much bigger than mice, and if you see one, they are unmistakable. Similar to mice, they are drawn inside looking for food, warmth, and a place to nest. The two most common types of rats you may see in your home are roof rats (also called black rats) and Norway rats. Rats are notorious carriers of disease, and if you see one, odds are there are more. It is recommended that you contact an experienced New Jersey rat exterminator right away, like ours, at Horizon Pest Control.
Rodents in Your Yard
While a mouse or a rat can wreak havoc inside your home, several other rodents can do severe damage to your yard and property. Outdoor rodents can tear apart your yard, dig up your lawn, cause your plants and trees to die, and interrupt utility and plumbing lines. Some of these pests, such as squirrels, can even be driven inside in search of food.
Common outdoor rodent pests include:
Some of the most damaging outdoor rodents are moles, voles, and gophers. These burrowing rodents dig large-scale tunnels throughout your yard, eating plants from the roots up. This can cause your garden and landscaping to die off. They also reproduce very quickly (voles can have up to ten litters a year!), meaning that you can find yourself dealing with an infestation very quickly.
If you have an outdoor rodent problem, identifying the type of rodent causing you issues is the first step in solving it. Call our New Jersey rodent removal specialists to schedule an inspection.
