Prior to your inspection there are way to tell quickly if you have a pest problem:

 

Smell

Something stinks.  Often, pests produce a musky odor.  If pests have made a habitat within your walls, their feces and urine will give off an ammonia-like odor. 

After time, with any infestation, deceased pests begin to gather and decompose within your wall and give off an unmissable smell of decay and the air becomes unbreathable.

Noise

Rodents will scratch and gnaw at night.  You are most likely to hear them near your pantry as they are noisiest nearest to their food sources.  Their bite-marks will also become unmistakable on corners of cardboard boxes if they do make it into your pantry or cupboards. 

Another clear indicator of a pest problem would be buzzing from bee and wasp nests. Unfortunately, wood-boring pests like termite and carpenter ants, are not known for being noisy are impossible to locate by ear.

 

Mess

Like every living thing, every pest will leave behind fecal matter.  If you notice rodent feces, frass (the sawdust-like leavings from termites,) or urine, professional pest control is necessary. 

Many pests spread disease and infection through their feces and becomes quite serious if they are defecating near your food or water sources. 

If you notice any signs of pest problems call for an inspection right away.
