Usually, when you think of pests around the house, you probably think of ants, roaches, termites, and other insects. But what about when pests are the four-legged, scurrying kind? Rodents may not take over your home in the numbers that insect do, but they can pose a health hazard as well as being a little scary for some. Luckily, Budget Brothers Termite and Pest Elimination has the answers.
First, Identify the Problem
One of the most obvious ways to know that you have a rodent problem is when you find droppings. They’re often spotted in the corners of cabinets or quiet, dark rooms such as closets and basements. You may, of course, also find them in kitchens, where a food supply is readily available. In the pantry, check the bagged items to see if the corners have been chewed through.
You should also take a walk around the perimeter of your home and look for cracks and openings in walls, windows, or doorways, which provide easy access inside. Rodents typically feed at night, so it might be good to do your walk around at dusk or later.
