Wilmington, Delaware is a beautiful mix of historic and modern buildings, coalescing into picturesque city at the edge of the Delaware River.

How bad is it?
If you hear signs of rodents in your home, you might be wondering if the problem is that bad. If you see one mouse, you might hope that it’s “just one mouse,” but unfortunately if there is one mouse, chances are there are many more. The trouble is that if one mouse found its way in, others probably have as well. Mice also reproduce like crazy. A female mouse can have as many as 100 babies in a year. 100 baby mice! And then they all keep breeding together so those 100 babies are then having their own litters. Many homeowners are unaware of rodent problems in the early stages. It is not until there are many rodents scratching around in the walls, stealing food, destroying your possessions and leaving their droppings all over the place that they are finally noticed. It’s not that you as a homeowner is unaware but in your busy life running from one thing to the next, you might not have many quiet moments to take notice of the subtle signs of rodents until it is too late and they have infested your entire home.
How to recognize the signs of a rodent home invasion
If rodents were as clumsy as a lumbering elephant or noisy as a chittering monkey, homeowners would never be caught unaware by rodent infestations. But rodents are quiet and sneaky so this is why rodent infestations are so common. Here are a few other subtle signs that you have rodents:
- Musky smell of rodent urine: Rodents dribble urine wherever they walk and this has a strong, musky odor. Many mice in your home will eventually give your home a musky odor.
- Unusual pet behavior: If you have pets like dogs or cats who are constantly acting strange, staring at the wall or ceiling, whimpering or barking for no reason, pay attention. They know something is amiss and can hear the quiet noises rodents make that we humans often miss.
- Chew and scratch marks: Rodents are constantly in search of food. Finding chew marks anywhere in your home means they were trying find food.
