How can I tell if there is a rodent infestation at home or in the office?
Rodents are nocturnal creatures that are most active during the hours between sunset and dawn; therefore, it is actually easier to spot the signs of rodent infestation.
Rodent droppings are shaped like dark brown cones and resemble grains of rice. They like to chew on wood and plastic and always leave behind a trail of grease and black marks. All of these are indications that you have rodents in the house.

In order to prevent rodent infestation, you should remove all food and water that are easily accessible because rodents rely on a sustainable source of water to survive. In the meanwhile, food should be kept in sealed metal or glass containers and the interior and exterior of your home or office should be cleaned regularly, so that rodent won’t have any place to hide. Furthermore, outdoor trash should be placed in a metal bin with a cover to avoid rodents from sneaking in for food. Lastly, clean up any leftover pet or bird food and store all pet food in sealed containers away from the ground.
How to get rid of rats in house? What rat control products are available?
In the case of rodent infestation, you can first try products such as glue traps and rodenticide and hire a rodent control expert to install wire mesh to block the entrances. If you are successful in capturing a rat or mouse, you must first make sure that it is dead and dispose it in a trash bag because the rodent might only be knocked out by the rodenticide and bite you; therefore, it is best to handle the rodent with a pair of long tongs or any long object to avoid direct contact. Remember to clean the floor with bleach afterwards.
How will rodent infestation affect your environment?
As rodents frequent unhygienic places to scavenge for food, they are likely to carry parasites, such as fleas, ticks, and mites, and be host to bacteria and diseases like plague, dysentery and typhoid fever. They can also taint food, cooking utensils and other objects with their feces and fur or attack humans and pets when in shock, thus increasing your risk of being infected with various diseases. As for commercial premises, rodent infestation can cause severe damages to merchandises and the property alike. Aside from health concerns, rodents can chew on electric wiring to cause fires and also on wood, plastic, and low-carbon steel, so it is important to hire a professional rodent control company to deal with this problem.
