In Western Pennsylvania, we experience cold winters filled with snow and ice. Luckily, we have warm homes that allow us to stay cozy. Unfortunately, mice and rats don’t, which is why they seek refuge in our homes. Rats and mice can pose a serious threat to you and your family as they can be a host of dangerous diseases such as Lyme disease, Hantavirus, and many more. Additionally, a rodent infestation can threaten the integrity of your home by chewing on cables, wires, wood, insulation, and more. At D-Bug Pest Control, we offer professional rodent control that consists of trapping, baiting, exclusion work, and more. For 80 years, our rat exterminators have been successfully removing these pests and restoring customers' peace of mind.
Common Signs of a Rodent Infestation
Infestations are notorious for being difficult to get rid of on your own. DIY treatments rarely work and it seems like rodents can multiply by the minute. A female rat can reproduce every three weeks and gives birth to six to ten rats at a time. That’s why it’s important to contact our rodent control exterminators to stop the infestation in its tracks. Not completely certain if rats or mice have invaded your home? Here are some common signs of a rat or mice infestation:
- Discovering droppings
- Smelling urine odors
- Seeing gnaw marks or holes
- Hearing scampering noises
- Noticing odd pet behavior
- Finding nests, often made out of paper and insulation
The best way to know if you have an infestation is to schedule a professional rodent inspection. If you’re interested in having us come to your home to inspect, call our office at 724-221-9636.
Rodent Species and Behavior
Rodents constitute over 40% of the mammal class. While there are thousands of different species, the most common rodents to infest homes in Pennsylvania are:
- Norway Rats
- Roof Rats
- Deer Mice
- House Mice
To get rid of rodents, it’s important to understand what attracts them, how they function, and where they nest. These pests are known to mark their territory by urine, and the scent of this will let you know if you have any nearby.
