Identifying a Mouse or Rat Problem in Your House A good home inspection will help you determine the type of rodent you're dealing with, their patterns of activity, what's bringing them inside your home, and most importantly - which rodent-control product to use for eliminating them. The first step to getting rid of mice or rats is figuring out which rodent you're dealing with - and how many there are. Before you take any steps to control a rodent problem, be sure to inspect the premises inside and out. Conducting a thorough inspection will be critical for helping you decide which method of control is right for you. With a flashlight, examine dark areas where rodents like to hide. And be sure to look up, down and all around for signs where rodents travel. A good inspection will help you determine: • The type of rodent - is it a house mouse, Norway rat or roof rat? • The severity of the problem • Where they eat, travel, and nest • The cause of your problem - whether it's poor sanitation, available food, or water • The best type of rodent control product to use and where to place it for success Tell-tale Signs of Rats and Mice include: • DROPPINGS • URINE ODORS • GNAWED HOLES • RUB AND GNAW MARKS • RODENT RUNWAYS • RODENT NESTS • SCAMPERING NOISES • UNUSUAL PET BEHAVIOR Rodent droppings are a sure sign that rats or mice are present, and will indicate the type of rodent, the size of the infestation, and where they are most active. Mouse droppings are small, less than one quarter inch, and pointed on both ends. Rat droppings are half an inch or larger. Norway Rat droppings are blunt at both ends, while Roof Rat droppings are have pointed ends. New droppings are shiny and putty-like in texture, while old ones are hard and crumbly. Varying feces sizes indicate that juveniles and adults are present, and lots of droppings may be an indication of a large infestation. The location of the droppings indicates active areas where you should place bait or traps. Rodent urine has a strong musky odor. With large infestations you can easily smell it. Gnawed mouse holes are small, clear-cut, and about the size of a dime. Gnawed rat holes are large, about the size of a quarter, with rough torn edges. Oily rub marks are left in places where rodents travel along walls. If rub marks smear, you know they are fresh. Gnaw marks on wood around the house also are a sign. Tooth marks about one eighth inch long are typical of rats and small scratch marks are a sign of mice. Common rodent pathways are generally along interior walls, building foundations, ledges, pipes, electrical wires, conduits, tree branches and fence rails. Norway rats nest in burrows outdoors deep in the ground. Roof rats typically nest above ground in attics, trees, or dense vegetation. Mice will shred paper, string, and other pliable materials to build their nests indoors. Rodents are nocturnal. At night they often create scratching sounds as they run inside walls and along floors Pets tend to act unusual when they hear or smell rodents in the house. They may appear extremely alert, bark, or begin to paw at spaces beneath refrigerators, stoves, or low-clearance pieces of furniture. Identifying the correct rodent culprit and understanding their behavior can help you select the right rodent control solution and help prevent future infestations. Tomcat offers a number of different rodent control solutions, such as refillable bait stations.

Signs of a Fly Infestation Noticing a few noisy flies in your house or your business may not mean you have an infestation. However, it should act as a warning sign to take some preventative action. Common Signs • Small dark clusters of spots (the size of a pinhead) – Look in light fittings, upper areas of the room and wall surfaces. Check areas that are difficult to clean thoroughly such as drainage channels, drains and sub-floor cavities where the contents of broken drains may be accumulating. Areas around sinks and below damaged floor tiling should also be monitored. • Regular sighting of flies – large number of flies buzzing around refuse areas and the base of garbage bins or other waste containers may indicate a more serious problem. Check anywhere that water pools including in guttering, rainwater barrels, tires or old machinery. Waterlogged pot plants may also attract flies. • Maggots – these are flies in their larval stage and could indicate a potential breeding site on your property. You may discover maggots in waste areas and deteriorating food. What Do Flies Look Like? House fly adults are about ⅛ to ¼ inches long (females are typically bigger than males) and dull gray in color. Their faces have two stripes. The middle part of their body has four narrow black stripes. Fruit fly adults are about ⅛ inches in length and dull-colored (the middle part of the body is sometimes dark brown-spotted).

Signs of termites Termite infestation is usually not apparent until severe damages have incurred. They live in dark, humid and protected environment, which make them so hard to find - until it’s too late. As termites devour their way through wood from the inside, it can be rather challenging to detect a termite infestation but there are some tell-tale signs that indicate their presence. Here are a few common signs of termites that you might see (or hear) around your home or business premises: Mud tubes on wall - Subterranean termites build shelter tubes made of mud, dirt and debris in order to travel to and fro the food source without being seen. These tubes are about the size of a coin and are usually found on exterior and interior walls leading up to the entry points of the building. Sightings of termite swarmers (flying termites) or discarded wings – Usually the first sign of infestation noticed by property owners are the presence of swarmers or alates. Another common indication is the remnants of discarded wings on windowsills and floors. While they may quickly disappear after they found their mating partner, the identical and disembodied wings are sure signs of an indoor termite swarm. Papery or hollow sounding timber - Termites usually consume woods from the inside out, leaving a thin veneer of timber or paint. So when you knock or tap on an area that has termite damages, it will sound hollow or papery due to parts (or all) of the timber having been eaten away. Tight fitting door or hard to open window - As termites devour timber, their excrement or ‘mud’ creates a protective environment that traps heat and moisture. This causes timber to swell, making it harder to open or close the infested windows and doors. Tunnels in the wood - Also known as 'galleries' which are quite difficult to see from the outside. Termite droppings - After consuming wood, dry wood termites often leave behind brown-coloured and grainy faecal mounds. These faecal pellets are usually found beneath the infested wood. We can put termites and termite worries behind you and protect you against future infestations. Pest Control Services in Coimbatore. Best Termite control Services in Coimbatore.

Q: Why are infestations often discovered during March - May? A: Spring typically is when large numbers of winged termites, known as "swarmers, " emerge inside homes. In nature, termites swarm to disperse and start new colonies. Triggered by warmer temperatures and rainfall, the winged termites emerge from the colony and fly into the air. The swarmers then drop to the ground, shed their wings, pair off with a mate, and attempt to begin new colonies in the soil. Few swarmers emerging outdoors survive to start new colonies. Swarmers emerging indoors are incapable of eating wood, seldom survive, and are best removed with a vacuum. They do, however, indicate that an infestation is present.
