It can be a frightening experience to see or hear a rodent in your home. Rodents are the largest group of mammals – including rats, mice, squirrels, chipmunks and voles (but NOT moles) to name a few. Rodents invade tens of millions of homes in the US each year, so you are not alone.
You may suspect you have rodents if you see droppings, smell urine odor, hear scratching sounds or noises where there should not be noises (walls, ceiling, attic, basement, etc). Perhaps your pet is acting differently.
Here at Critter Control of the Triad, we often hear stories about how customers saw a rodent, set a trap, and hoped the problem was resolved, only to be disappointed. It is possible that you may only have one or two rodents on your property, however rodents are not considered to be solitary creatures. While you may only find one inside your home, many more could be living in your crawlspace or elsewhere on your property. Mice can fit through the tiniest of cracks in your home. So homeowners may never know exactly how many rodents they have sharing their home.
It is best practice to seek help at the first sign of rodents in your home or on your property. Mice can begin reproducing at only six weeks of age and can have several litters per year. The gestation period is only 3-4 weeks long. If you wait too long, you could have a large rodent family living on your property.
