How can I find out what's burrowing under my carpet pad?


A few months ago I suspected something got into my home while I was bringing in groceries.Months later I have burrow marks all over my living room, dining room carpet. What could this be?I have Clarks pest control and they seem to be as puzzled as I am. What ever it is it has big burrow pathsall over the place. Can anyone out there help?

    Pest control should set some live traps. They also should be able to determine or find what it is. Could be a mole, chipmunk etc.

      I have Clarks pest control and they just seem to smile and try traps in areas. They have not been any help in 5 months. It took that long for the burrowing or rooting to occur.

    Get a new pest control company, the one you have isn't doing the job.

    After you catch the critter, consider ripping out the old and installing new carpet, because the critter has surely left waste all over the place under your carpets.

  • If it were me, I would pull the carpet back and find out. The area needs to be sanitized. And get whatever it is out! Anyone you know that will loan out their cat or dog for a few days?

    Thanks for your help. I'm installing hardwood floors so everything is going.

      That's great--I'm sure you'll love it--everyone I know who has gone to hardwood flooring is thrilled with it.. Enjoy your new floors.
