It can be hard to feel comfortable in your own home if you are sharing it with pests. Not only are pests terrible house guests that eat your food and leave a mess, they could be exposing you or your family members to a wide variety of diseases. To ensure you remain safe, here are 3 warning signs of a potential pest infestation that could signal it’s time to call a pest control professional.
Droppings or Urine
Pest droppings are especially dangerous and caution should be exercised when dealing with them. Not only is this a clear sign of a potential pest infestation, direct contact could result in the transmission of dangerous pathogens, diseases or viruses. If possible, call a pest control provider as soon as possible without disturbing the droppings to identify the pest you are dealing with.
Much like spiders leave cobwebs, other pests have their own nesting habits that can signal their presence when they are found. As pests, like mice, decide they have found a suitable structure for their nests, they will often begin constructing them in dark, undisturbed areas of your home. In many cases, these nests are found by the strange smell they emit.
When your home is quiet late at night, it’s not uncommon to hear the house settling or strange cracks. However, this is also the time that pests are most active and the sounds of their presence are most easily detected. Even the smallest sound in your walls of movement could indicate that a larger pest problem could be present and may warrant a further inspection.
