Because different types of rodents have their own unique habits, properly identifying them is key for effective trapping. Safeguard has decades of expertise getting to know the local types of mice and rats that live in Harlingen TX.
Signs You Have a Rat or Mouse in The House
- Droppings. The darker the color, the more recent your mouse or rat were there.
- Runway streaks. Rodents collect grease and dirt on their fur. Because they tend to take the same path between their food and nest, you will see brown streaks along your foundation, window sill ledges, and bottom of walls.
- Look for knaw marks.
- Listen for scratching and scuffling sounds.
