Warning Signs North Texas Rodents Leave Behind

Do you think you may have rodents in your North Texas home? It can be difficult to tell. Rodents can live in a home without making any noises that you're able to detect. Today, we're going to take a look at some of the warning signs to look for when rodents are being "as quiet as a mouse."

Suspicious Behavior

Is your cat sitting on the floor in your kitchen staring at a gap between your cabinet and the dishwasher? Is your dog pacing and acting funny in the kitchen or pantry? Cats and dogs can hear and smell things that you can't. Long before you realize you have a rodent infestation, your cat or dog will know. But don't expect your pet to solve your infestation. Mice and rats travel through wall voids where cats and dogs can't go. When rodents emerge from your walls, they're likely to come out behind your cabinets or drop down into the backs of drawers. They never have to expose themselves to open spaces where pets can get them.


Are you finding tiny black pellets in the cabinet under your sink? Are you noticing pellets on your pantry shelves? Those little black pellets are mice or rat feces—but, you know that. Here's something you don't know. The droppings left by mice and rats can give you a pretty clear picture of how many rodents are infesting your home, which rodents you're dealing with, and whether or not you have an active infestation. "Really? You can tell all that from rodent poop?" You sure can. Large pellets are likely to be rat droppings and smaller pellets are likely to be mouse droppings. The more pellets you have, the more rodents you have. If the droppings are black and squishy, they're fresh. If they are grey and powdery, they're old. When droppings appear, clean them up and check back in that location to see if more droppings are left. The faster those droppings appear, the more rodents you have.
