Jan 9, 2017

Do You Have  Mouse in Your House?

  • Sounds: One of the first signs that you notice you may be experience a rodent issue, is a scratching sound or a pitter patter in the walls or ceilings at night.
  • Droppings & urine: Mice are always urinating and defecating continuously throughout the day leaving behind droppings everywhere they travel in your home. House mice product an astounding 50 – 75 droppings per day. If you are a homeowner suffering from a mouse infestation you will find mice feces in cupboards, under appliances and everywhere else that mice have traveled in your home.
  • Food Debris: Mice Chew their way into their food, most home owners will often find holes in the bottom of dog food bags, bird seed, and even in your cereal boxes in the pantry. At times, the chew pattern will show obvious teeth marks. You may even start to find hiding places of food examples: In boots / under sheets / in dresser drawers.
  • Nesting Or Entrance Debris: Mice love finding a cozy spot to sleep and give birth to their young. If you find areas with missing insulation or other debris kicked out conspicuously, take a close look. It could be a sign that a mouse is getting ready to give birth and creating a home !
  • Traffic Patterns: Mice will have a very specific traffic pattern. At night they will try to hug a wall for more protection. You may be able to see dirt on the walls under and around joists.
