Many people think pests aren’t as big of an issue in the winter in New England, but it is more common for rodents to find their way in to homes and businesses. Rodents reproduce quickly, have a strong odor if they die in hidden places, and carry up to 35 different diseases. Mice, rats, squirrels, and even raccoons have been known to make their way into homes and businesses.
Signs you’ve got unwanted company. Typically, rodents are nocturnal, so often your first sign that they have moved in will be hearing them at night in walls or ceilings. It may be more difficult knowing by sound in a business because most businesses are closed during a rodent’s most active hours. Some other signs to help you determine if you have a rodent problem, consider what may be good nesting material sitting around or stored and see if there is any damage from nibbling, such as blankets, pillows, boxes, or newspapers, also look for droppings in areas where food may be near.
