1. Chew Marks
Finding small chew marks on wood, cardboard, and other materials? Rodents of all sizes are known to gnaw on everything from baseboards to wires.
2. Musky Odor
A rodent infestation is usually accompanied by a musky odor. This odor tends to grow stronger as the infestation worsens.
3. Rotting Odor
If a rodent dies inside a dwelling the smell will be strong. We strongly advise calling a licensed pest control professional to find and remove dead rodents or other pests as they can be very hazardous. If you do remove a dead rodent on your own, be sure to wear gloves and a mask.
4. Odd Pet Behavior
If your dog or cat is scratching at walls or acting erratic in a certain area of the home, it could be a sign of rodents. Make a note of where they exhibit this behaviour, it is great information to provide a pest technician when they inspect your home.
Rodent droppings are amongst the most common and easily seen signs of an infestation. Mice droppings are usually no more than ¼” in length and are small, dark brown, with pointed ends. Rat droppings can be anywhere between ¾” and ½” long and vary in shape depending on the type of rat. Always use gloves and a mask when cleaning up rodent droppings.
Tiny rodent footprints are another obvious sign of infestation. Look for these up high where dust collects easily and potential tracks would identifiable.
Mice and rats will sometimes gnaw small holes in thin walls or materials in order to create new entry points and ways to get around.
Rodents look for quiet places of shelter that offer protection from larger animals. Your home’s warmth and safety make it ideal for raising a family.

Inside Walls – Rats and mice take advantage of wall cavities for free access to the whole house.
Listen for rustling and squeaking, and inspect your baseboards for openings. A lingering foul odour might indicate a decomposing body.
Garages and Sheds – It’s no surprise that spaces that accumulate clutter and have little human traffic are appealing. They’re usually dark and quiet, and they contain plenty of useful materials for making a home. Cardboard storage boxes that are rarely opened are as inviting as it gets.
Kitchens – Rats and mice don’t typically nest in commonly occupied rooms, but the kitchen is an exception. Proximity to food sources is a major selling point for rodent real estate.
Mice often hole up in protected areas behind appliances. They also slip behind loose baseboards and settle under cabinets that are rarely opened.

Structural Damage – Rodent infestations often result in structural damage – they chew through your home to make convenient passageways. Since this typically occurs in hard-to-find areas, pricey repairs are needed once the infestation is cleared.
Electrical & Pipe Damage – Electrical damage can be another damaging effect of a rodent infestation. If any electrical wires get in their way, they won’t hesitate to chew through. Not only is this type of damage expensive to fix, but it can also be a safety hazard to your family if undetected. Some species can even chew through pipes!
Ruined Food Sources – Rodents can also contaminate food sources (they can chew through cardboard and plastic products). If this happens, you have to throw out the entire package because of their ability to transfer deadly diseases. Just a few rodents can easily ruin your entire pantry of food.
