Rodent Identification & Prevention
Are rodents dangerous?
Don't let a rodent's cute whiskers and small size fool you into thinking they aren't a huge threat if they find a way into your home. Whether the smallest mouse or the largest rat finds a way indoors, one thing is for sure; they are a significant threat to both people and property.
Rodents have a constant need to chew, which means that they will damage furniture, drywall, and floors in your home. They will also chew through cables and wires with their sharp teeth.
In addition to being destructive, rodents are a health threat. They carry and spread many pathogens that make people ill, leave behind trails of urine and feces, and contaminate food sources and surfaces.
Never underestimate the danger of a rodent infestation and immediately reach out to Green Day Pest at the first sign of mice or rats for assistance removing them from your home.
Why do I have a rodent problem?
Rodents live on properties that offer them food, water, and shelter. A few things around your home and property that may be attractive to rodents include: garden areas, compost piles, pet food, open containers of garbage, outdoor eating areas, bird seed or wild animal feed, bird baths, clogged gutters, wood piles, areas of dense vegetation, or piles of debris. Mice and rats are a year-round problem, but they can become particularly problematic in the late fall as they seek a warm place to overwinter.

Where will I find rodents?
If a mouse or rat has wriggled its way into your home, it will find a quiet place to hide during the day. Attics, wall voids, basements, and crawl spaces often house rodent nests. Other places to discover nesting rats or rodents include spaces behind appliances, in the backs of cabinets, and within cardboard boxes or the clutter in the bottom of closets.
When rats are in your home, you will likely discover grease or dirt trails along walls or furniture. Other signs of a rodent problem include hearing scratching sounds behind walls, finding holes in food packaging, and noticing a foul musty odor.
