Physical Damage To Your Property’s Structure

Physical damage to the structure of your property likes gnaw marks or holes is an indication that you have a Pest Infestation problem. Mice and rats like to have a chew, so gnaw marks on your wires or furniture is a red flag. Small holes in your floor is also a sign of an infestation. You should also keep an eye out for damaged wood like on wooden furniture or outdoor decking as this can be an indicator that you have a cockroach problem and you need cockroach infestation. If you do notice unexplained property damage, should you contact a local pest infestation company who will be able to identify an underlying pest issue.

How To Identify Pests?


  • Pests don’t practice good hygiene; they’re called pests after all. They leave behind waste just like everyone and every other animal on the planet. The type of droppings you may come across will help you determine what kind of pest infestation you have.
  • Rodent droppings are small and don’t really smell of anything, but they are conical and solid. Insect droppings are (as you would expect) a lot smaller than rodents but also contain body parts, wings and shed skin.
  • When it comes to spiders, they make webs to catch their prey. They know their stuff when catching pests, so if you find spider webs in your house, look for other nearby places where pests might be getting into your property.

Unpleasant Smells

  • Pests can produce a range of different smells, and none of them are pleasant. All kinds of pests, including mice, rats, ants, flies, and beetles, carry their food to a secluded place to enjoy. The issue is, they don’t always finish their food, and it gets left to rot away.
  • If you do smell rotting food and can’t locate where it is, it could be that a pest carried it from your kitchen and into a wall or secluded area. Pests can also bite into food packaging to try and get its contents out, which can expose perishable foods.
  • If you do smell a particularly disgusting odour, it could be possible that a pest has died somewhere in your home. Of course, their droppings also smell too. If you’ve got an unpleasant smell in your house that you can’t place, a pest infestation could be the issue.

Strange Noises

  • Nibbling or scratching sounds come from mice and rats; they’ll chew on just about anything they come across. What’s more, they can find their way into your loft or basement (if you have one); essentially, anywhere is fair game for determined rodents. They can fit into even the smallest of spaces and won’t be afraid to venture through your pipes, so it’s a good idea to ensure that everything in your home has a water-tight seal.
  • If you hear flapping sounds coming from towards your roof, then it’s likely you have baby birds nesting somewhere that’re in need of a good feed. If you do have a bird infestation, it’s likely you’ll hear the mother bird coming and going too as she seeks food for her young.


Pests, particularly mice and rats will make nests in any place they inhabit. For this reason, if you think there might be pests in your home, look for nests as well as droppings. Typically, rodents will make their nests with anything they can such as grass, leaves, papers and in places in your home that you rarely use. This can make it rather tricky when it comes to finding them. Usually, you’ll find nests underneath your flooring or between walls, so make sure you take the time to inspect your house thoroughly.

Damaged Plants And Grass

You also need to keep an eye out for pests in your garden because some types of insects like to gnaw at planets and glass blades. This means that they can damage patches of your garden and make your grass brown or uneven. Usually, garden infestations are caused by flies, beetles, rats, and moles. In such cases, you’ll find it pretty difficult to grow your planets and generally have a nice looking garden.

Lawn Damage- Smears Or Grease Marks

Mice and rats have natural oils just like humans do so if they squeeze through the same gap multiple times, smear or grease marks will start to form over time. If you do have a pest infestation, these marks can also appear on kitchen tops, white cables and on your floors. If you’re unsure whether rodents are causing the marks, we recommend cleaning them up, and then see if they appear again weeks later.

Skin Reactions Or Bites

Skin reactions and bites are mainly caused by insects such as bedbugs and fleas. If you get bites appearing around your ankles, then it’s a good chance these are flea bites as they tend to sit around your sock area. Multiple bite marks in a line would suggest you have an infestation of bedbugs. In this case, we would highly recommend calling a pest infestationcompany as bedbugs can be rather difficult to get rid of.
