Rodents, such as mice, rats or squirrels, damage your property, make family members sick and can impede business if they are found in a commercial setting. According to research curated by the University of South Florida, 80 percent of surveyed companies reported that damaged merchandise and destroyed structures are one of the most costly aspects of rodent damage. While the diseases from rodents are carefully documented, many homeowners tend to overlook the threat that they pose over personal property.
When You Should Call Critter Control Sarasota
- Piles of insulation. Rodents will gnaw and borrow into insulation, tunneling inside walls and attics. If you suddenly find a hole in your insulation, with the telltale pile of chewed insulation bits, then there is a good chance that you have a rodent infestation.
- Intermittent electricity. Rodents will also build nests in large electrical appliances, taking advantage of the warmth emitted by the voltage, and also chewing on wiring which can cause applications to short-circuit or work intermittently.
- Rodent droppings. Droppings are a sure sign that rodents are present. If you’re able to, visual inspection of the droppings will be able to indicate the type of rodent, the size of the infestation, and where they are most active in your property. Thankfully, Critter Control® of Sarasota will be able to ascertain that for you.
- Oily streaks and gnaw marks. Rodents are greasy due to secreted oils and their environment where grime, dirt, and pathogens attach to their coats. Oily rub marks are left in places wherever rodents travel — which would typically show along the walls, the corners of a room, and along entryways. Rodents are very cautious and will usually only travel along areas that they know are not frequented. If you notice oily marks along the walls, sprinkle a bit of talcum powder or flour. If you see small footprints or a disturbance along the powder, then that is a sure sign that there are rodents in your home.
