If you’re seeing feces, gnaw marks, tracks of little feet, and hearing scurrying in your walls or rooms you’re not in, you likely have a rodent infestation. While you’re more likely to find rodents in your home when the weather is colder, a cozy environment of food and shelter will attract them year-round. Here are the rodents you’re mostly to deal with in your Virginia home.
House Mouse Infestation
House mice only need a crack of about ¼ inch—about the size of a dime—to make it in your home. No wonder they get in so easily! They are drawn to your clutter, areas behind appliances, under sinks, and food pantries. and are happy sharing your food with you.
Mouse infestations are 10 to 20 times more common than rat infestation. And because mice multiply quickly, once you have one, you can expect more soon.
Norway Rat Infestation
The are big, fat, brown rats. They can grow to be around 16 inches long, but they only need ½ inch opening to make it into your home! They burrow to protect themselves and will also seek protection in sewers, basements, and ground levels of buildings. Be mindful of your vegetation–a thick brush near your home invites them closer. You will likely hear them scurrying around at night. They like your garbage, waste, and any cockroaches that have also invaded your home.
They are very cautious, which is why preventative measures can usually keep these rodents away.
Roof Rat Infestation
Unlike Norway rats, roof rats are more active during the day than at night. These rats like warmer areas and generally make their home outside. However, if they find easy food in your attic, ceiling, or wall void, they’ll gladly call your home their own.
