Identifying rodent chew marks
It's hard to deal with a rodent problem if you don't know which type of rodent you're dealing with. Whether it's rats, mice, hedgehogs or possums, chew marks are often the best way to identify rodents that are active at night when humans aren't around.
Rodents teeth and bite marks are unique to their species. By placing rodent detector cards out in your environment and then comparing them to known bite patterns you can identify which type of predator you're dealing with. Once the rodent type has been identified you can then put an appropriate programme in place to deal with your rodent problem.
The team at Landcare Research have created a simple guide on how to place rodent detector cards and then identify the culprit behind the chew marks. You can view their guide here.
