Domestic Rodent Control Manchester
Discovering rats or mice in your home can be a very distressing event, understandable considering the damage they can cause and the ease with which they can spread dirt, disease and parasites. They can often be heard moving through your house at night, leaving you with disturbed sleep and high stress levels.
Knowing the signs of a rodent infestation is important, as the sooner you recognise the problem the sooner it can be dealt with once and for all. We’ve put together a quick guide to what to look out
for, for your reference.
Signs of a rodent problem:
- Rat burrows in garden or backyard areas, particularly around exposed brick or pipework
- Droppings – mice can produce up to 80 pellets a day and urinate as they move, leaving trails wherever they go.
- Footprints and runs – mice and rats will often follow scent-marked trails to and from food and nesting sites repeatedly. You may be able to easily spot tracks and marks.
- Smear marks caused by fur – both mice and rats are grubby, and will leave smear marks wherever they go after rubbing along walls, skirting boards etc.
- Chewed clothing, fabric or other materials from their gnawing.
- Nesting materials such as shredded cardboard, fabric or paper.
Rodent Infestation risks:
- The spreading of disease and parasites. Both mice and rats are common vectors of several disease and bacteria that can cause serious health problems.
- Damage to your property due to gnawing actions.
- Contamination of foodstuffs and fabrics.
