Do you like to have furry friends in your home? If we told you that we were speaking of rodents, you would most likely say no. Rodents can carry disease, damage your home, and just make it a much less pleasant place to live. They also breed very quickly, so allowing them in could lead to your home being overrun with rodents in a short period of time.
There are things you can do to minimize the risk of having a rodent infestation. It is important to check around the perimeter of your home for suspicious holes and cracks that have scratchmarks around them. Rodents can squeeze through some very tight spots, and finding them and patching them up early can stop them in their tracks.
If you find torn fabric or paper in your home, this could be from a rodent nesting. Be careful if you find droppings since this could spread disease.
