Gnawed food packaging. Torn, scratched or shredded food packaging often indicates that a pest has been nibbling at your stored goods.

Droppings. Keep an eye out for rodent pellets, urine stains and any other signs that pests have been sneaking around. If you do find rodent droppings or urine, let a pest management professional handle the cleanup, as rodent droppings can transmit the Hanta virus if handled improperly.

Nesting materials. If you find bits of shredded paper, fabric or insulation as you clean, there’s a good chance rodents or other larger pests have been nesting in your home.

Unusual holes or sawdust piles. If you find small piles of sawdust or a powdery residue near the woodwork in your home (such as windowsills or molding), it be the handiwork of a wood-destroying pest. Call a pest control service immediately, as these invaders can cause structural damage to your home. Other signs of wood-destroying pests can include loose trim, sagging floors, mud tubes, and blistered or wavy wood.

Wings or carcasses. If you find them in multiple locations, or discover a large concentration of them in a particular area of your home, you may have an infestation on your hands.
