Signs of a Rodent Infestation in Your Warehouse

RatYour business’s warehouse is a hub of storage and distribution, but it can also be a perfect place for rodents to hide. Both rats and mice prefer hidden areas away from predators, especially when they are nesting. Although you may not see the rodents in your warehouse, there are telltale clues that point to an infestation. At Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control, we want your North Carolina business to be rodent-free.

Excrement

The simplest way to determine a rodent infestation is through excrement discovery. Commonly overlooked as pebbles or rocks, rat and mice droppings are typically near walls where they scurry in the night. Appearing black or brown, these pellets can even be slightly shiny. Take a strong flashlight and shine it along the warehouse’s perimeter. Try to access hard-to-reach areas to find even more excrement evidence. By following the droppings, you may even discover their main nesting area.

Travel Clues

Become an investigator by looking for travel clues. Look along ceiling beams, pipes and side passageways. You are looking for paw prints, tail marks and even greasy stains. Rats and mice move through confined spaces to find the best areas to hide, allowing their fur to catch oil, grime and grease. They may leave that grease directly on your clean warehouse floor. Any areas with lumber often leave fine sawdust on the floor. Examine this area as well for paw prints in the dust.

Chewing Evidence

You may run a clean warehouse, but rodents make a mess in corners and along walls. Inspect any wood, such as fixtures, pallets or even cardboard boxes. Rodents chew on these items, leaving gnawing marks and sawdust behind. You may be able to follow the gnaw marks to their main hiding place, or the chewing area could be confined to one spot. Call Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control if you’re unsure about your infestation’s severity.

Nesting Instinct

Rodents naturally want a safe place to nest, but they also need materials. Your warehouse is potentially full of choice items, including newspaper and packing supplies. Take a look at your loose materials, pinpointing any torn or missing areas. Rodents literally shred materials to create a nest when they are ready to reproduce. Finding damaged materials gives you an idea of what to look for in any known hiding places.

At Clegg’s Termite & Pest Control, we strive to keep your warehouse clear of all rodent infestations. Keep your business and employees happy and healthy with our professional services today.
