Signs of Mice & Rats

Mice and rats generally prefer to be outdoors, but they will come into homes to look for food, water, and warmth. Chicagoland is prone to mice and rat problems year round, but most people notice mice during the colder months. The winter is a popular time for extermination services.

If rodents find a warm, safe place they will likely stay. If you suspect you have a mouse or rat problem, you probably do. Unfortunately, most people wait too long. Rodents procreate quickly, so infestations can grow rapidly. Larger colonies are more difficult to eliminate, so call Chem-Wise at early signs of infestation.

Signs of Infestation

Droppings

These are about the size of a grain of rice with pointed ends. Mouse droppings generally have hair from grooming.

Sounds

Listen for sounds in the walls or roof. Other insects could also be making the sound, so it’s best to look for additional signs.

Sightings

Sightings typically occur in the evening, but mice can be seen during the day, especially if you disturb a hiding place.

Gnaw Damage

Rats’ teeth grow constantly, similar to fingernails. To maintain their teeth, rats gnaw on wood, plastic, cardboard, or electrical cords.

Nests

Depending on the rodent type they will live in nests or burrows. Check for nests consisting of torn paper and debris behind appliances and inside crawlspaces.

Tracks & Footprints

Look for tail marks and footprints in low-traffic areas, such as sheds. In your home, look for rub marks along your baseboards where the mice or rats may run parallel to the wall.

Why We Treat

Mice and rats can be a nuisance when they have invaded your home. They tend to gnaw and chew on things, which can cause damage to furniture, wood paneling, and electrical wires. On top of the damage they cause, they carry up to 25 communicable diseases including HPS, EMCV, and Rat Bite Fever. Mice can carry diseases through their droppings and their bites. Rat Bite Fever can cause rashes, headaches, and nausea. Transmission can occur through bites, contact with urine, and handling or eating contaminated food. Taking care of your mice and rat problem can help protect your home and family.
