Rodent Removal in Birmingham, AL

Rodents are notorious for their ability to squeeze through incredibly small openings to gain access to your home. Rodents, such as mice and rats, have highly flexible bodies and can compress their ribs and skulls to fit through tiny gaps. Mice can squeeze through openings as small as a dime, and rats can enter through holes the size of a quarter. 

Stop these pests from entering your home or building with removal and exclusion services. Rid-A-Critter is a rodent removal and control company in Birmingham, Alabama. We are your one-stop solution for rat problems! 

Signs You Have Rodents

Rodent infestations can be a serious problem, and early detection is crucial. Here are some easy signs that indicate you may have rodents in your home or building:

  • Droppings: One clear sign is the presence of droppings. Mice droppings are small, dark and oval-shaped, and rat droppings are also dark but a little larger in size and shaped like pea pods. You might find droppings near food sources, in cupboards, under sinks, along baseboards and in hidden areas. 
  • Gnaw marks: Rodents gnaw a lot to prevent their teeth from growing too long — or else their teeth will grow into their brain! Look for gnaw marks on food packaging, furniture, walls, wires and other materials. 
  • Material for nesting: Rodents build their nests using shredded paper, fabric, insulation and other soft materials. Finding these materials in hidden corners, drawers or behind appliances can indicate an infestation. 
  • Noises: If you hear squeaking sounds and scratching, you might have rodents living in your building. 
  • Urine odor: You might notice a strong, musky odor in areas with high rodent activity. This smell is due to the presence of rodent urine, which can have a distinct and unpleasant smell. 
  • Unusual pet behavior: Pets, especially cats and dogs, can become more alert or agitated in areas with rodents. They might sniff, paw at or focus on certain spots in your home.
