Recognising you need to call Rodent Control
The most common rodents on business premises are rats and mice. Both tend to come out at night and you rarely spot them in the day time. However, if you or even worse, a customer does spot a rat or a mouse, there are likely to be more nearby. If you are concerned about rodents on your premises but aren’t 100% sure, look out for these signs:
- Droppings – pests do not have any issue with leaving droppings wherever they go. Rat and mouse droppings are instantly recognisable and are often found in large piles, making them easy to identify.
- Bite and gnaw marks – both rats and mice have a natural compulsion to chew and gnaw. You may find small toothmarks and evidence of gnawing on walls, floorboards and even through wiring.
- Movement and unusual sounds – rats and mice can get everywhere, including in between walls. Unusual scurrying or scratching sounds that you can’t identify could well be evidence of a rodent problem.
