First signs of infestation

If you see a rodent, it could be living in your house. If you hear a rodent, it could be living in your house. If you smell a rodent, it could be living in your house. If you see a rodent running around in your house and suddenly disappear somewhere in your wall, there is a 200% chance it is nesting there.

If you hear sounds such as scratching, squeaking, or running coming somewhere from inside a wall, then this will also indicate the presence of the rodent. If a rodent is residing inside your wall, it will also leave its droppings there. Sooner or later they will start building up and cause the place to stink. And eventually, youll notice a foul smell coming from inside your wall.

How to locate a rodent

If any of the aforementioned conditions occur, then youd have to pinpoint the exact location of the rodents nest to extract it.

Start smelling the walls of a certain room where you doubt the rodent might be, and narrow the area down to a single spot on the wall. Only start the extraction process if you are dead sure the rodent is there. If youre not, call a professional.

How to remove the rodent

Once you're aware of the exact location of the rodent, make a small hole in the wall about a square inch or so. If you find the rodent or even its nest, then you are at the right place. Place traps in that area to capture the rodent when it arrives. Remove the nest and the droppings.
