Do you think you may have a rodent problem? A few of the main signs that you have a rodent problem are gnaw marks, droppings, and scampering noises. In addition, they cause considerable structural damage to your home or building, and will tunnel into insulation inside of walls and attics. Stanley Pest Control will evaluate your situation and be able to tailor a comprehensive plan for removal given the severity of the infestation.
House mice can use even dime-sized cracks to gain entry into your home or building, making them one of the most troublesome and costly rodents in the United States. They seek areas of clutter, such as attics or basements, because they provide excellent hiding places for these pests to build nests.
House mice are secretive and very cautious, making them harder to control. Their droppings can contaminate food and disease can be transmitted if the population is not controlled. Because house mice are so small, they are able to enter homes and buildings much more easily than rats. As a result, mice infestations are more common than rat infestations.
The Roof Rat, commonly referred to as black rats or ship rats, gets it's name from its tendency to find shelter in areas like attics, trees, fences and anything off the ground. They are the smaller of the two major rat species in the world. The Norway Rat is larger in size and is also referred to as the brown rat. Rats tend to become a bigger problem during the winter, but regardless of time they can be a pester and a serious health hazard.
