Scratching and Rustling Sounds

If you hear scratching noises in your walls, it’s most likely due to bugs or rats. Keep in mind that insects, such as carpenter ants or termites, don't create much noise. That means if you hear a lot of noise, it’s more likely that you're dealing with a rodent problem or wild animals.

Droppings and Urine

Rodents like mice and rats can produce droppings that spread germs, taint food, and induce allergic responses.

Droppings can also carry illnesses and viruses such as:

  • Hantavirus — a potentially fatal illness that is transmitted to people by rodents, most notably the white-footed deer mouse. People become infected by being exposed to or inhaling contaminated rodent urine, droppings, or saliva. The odds rise when people are near mice that are actively living.

  • Bubonic plague is often transmitted by a rodent that has been infected by fleas. This can induce fever, headache, and severely enlarged lymph nodes.

  • Salmonellosis is a kind of food poisoning caused by rat feces, which is spread by eating infected food. Diarrhea, fever, and stomach discomfort are among the symptoms.

  • Rat-Bite Fever – Rat-bite fever (RBF) is a potentially lethal infectious illness spread by diseased rats or by eating rodent-contaminated food.
