Strange pellets in the corner of an unused room. Odd smells. Maybe even very soft scuffling in the middle of the night. All of these things point to a rodent in your home. It’s a problem in Massachusetts, and there are a lot of causes. Massachusetts maintains a lot of nice wooded areas and we have beautiful mixes of old and new houses and apartment buildings, offering a wide range of nooks and crannies for mice and other rodents to get into. We don’t want to lose these places because they’re part of what makes the area beautiful, but it does create the need for rodent and mice removal.
Is There a Rodent in My Home?
What’s listed above aren’t the only signs you’ve got a rodent problem in your home. Bags of food might be strangely torn open in ways you know you didn’t do. Pet food bags develop strange holes near the bottom where they’re close to the floor. Oftentimes, a mouse will eat right there. If you find food debris under or around a pet food bag, you almost certainly have a rodent.
You might find torn insulation in enclosed spaces. This points to rodents making a nest. Then there’s the scuffling noise…when it’s quiet, especially at night, you may hear the faint pitter-patter of rodents in your walls or attic.
