    Understanding Rodent Behavior

    Common Rodent Species

    Identifying the type of rodent infesting your space is crucial for effective control. Common species include rats, mice, and squirrels, each requiring a tailored approach.

    Nesting Habits

    Rodents seek shelter in hidden spaces, creating nests that serve as breeding grounds. Understanding these nesting habits is key to eradicating infestations.

    Feeding Patterns

    Rodents are opportunistic feeders, targeting food sources in and around your home. Knowing their feeding patterns aids in implementing preventive measures.

    Signs of Rodent Infestation


    Discovering rodent droppings is a clear sign of an infestation. Different species leave distinct droppings, aiding in identification.

    Gnaw Marks

    Rodents constantly gnaw to maintain their teeth. Gnaw marks on furniture, wires, or food packaging indicate their presence.

    Unusual Noises

    Nocturnal by nature, rodents are often heard scurrying in walls or ceilings. Unexplained noises should prompt a thorough inspection.
