Are Those Things Rodent Droppings?

They’re black and range in size from three to six millimeters. The droppings resemble a grain of rice. If you find droppings in your home, don’t stop until you’ve called a local exterminator.

Reasons Mice Are In Your Residence

Learning why these pests enter residences is wise. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have a better idea of how to stop them from entering your residence. Ultimately, rodents are going to enter your home because they want to eat your food. Although rodents are larger than other pests, they can still slip through the smallest holes and gaps.

They won’t leave your home so you’ll have to take steps to get rid of them.

You must seal all gaps around your exterior walls to reduce the likelihood that they’ll be able to sneak inside. You’ll also want to keep your home clean so they cannot access food.
