How To Identify A Mouse Infestation

Appearance - Mice are rodents, usually between 10 and 20 centimeters long. They are fur covered and may be grayish or brown depending on the type. Mice do have hair on their tails, although it is shorter and finer than that on their bodies.

Behavior - Some of the first signs of a mouse infestation could be mouse droppings or a urine smell. Mouse droppings are about the size of a grain of rice and black in color. They will enter homes in the colder months seeking shelter and food. Pantry items eaten in cabinets, chewed paper, and other damaged paper products potentially used for mouse nests could be a sign of a mouse problem. Mice will have babies two to four times a year.

Why You Might Have Mice

Depending on the season or weather, mice will enter your home to keep warm, seek shelter or find a place to start a very large family. Homes and their foundations offer many things mice need such as food, items to create a shelter or nest and simply a place to be left unharmed. If you have holes in your walls or foundation, these may be convenient entrances for mice to seek shelter and reproduce, quickly creating mice infestation problems.

Reasons To Treat Your Mice Problem Immediately

First and foremost, mice can reproduce quickly. Just having two mice living within the walls of your home can spawn 40 offspring in a year. Now multiply that by each new offspring, and you will have a massive headache.

Mouse droppings can carry dangerous bacteria and viruses. Exposure to mouse droppings can lead to salmonella, ticks carried by mice can lead to Lymes disease, and fleas from mice can cause allergic reactions and rashes.

Property damage can also become an issue as mice chew up your furniture, clothes and even the wiring in your home- leading to costly electrical repairs.

You may think a quick fix is putting poison down, but that is not a permanent fix and can be risky in it, especially if you have children or pets. Calling us to perform professional mouse control can ensure the mouse problem will not present itself at your home again.

How to Get Rid of Mice

If the weather is getting colder, you may start noticing mice in your home. Mice, and all rodents, are a big problem for homeowners. They can contaminate food, spread disease, and even cause damage. It is best to get rid of mice as soon as you spot them. The rest of this article gives you tips on how to spot and remove mice from your home.

How to Spot a Mouse Problem

Mice are common all over the United States. There are many different mouse species. Only a few venter indoors. If you see signs of mice in your home, they are likely either house mice, deer mice, or white-footed mice.

The good news is that telling the difference between these mouse species is not important. All mouse problems present similar signs.

  1. You see a mouse.
    All mouse species are nocturnal. They are also very shy of humans. Therefore, if you see a mouse, you are likely to have more than one. Mice also reproduce very quickly. So, if notice a mouse, you need to call a professional exterminators immediately. Leave the mice to their own devices and you may end up with a mouse colony on your hands.
  2. You notice mouse dropping.
    It is much more likely to find mice droppins than it is notice a mouse. Mouse droppings are usually 3-6 mm in length. They will be pellet-shaped and black. They are similar in appearance to cockroach and rat droppings. Mouse droppings will be found in containers, near food, along baseboards, and anywhere where mice have been.
  3. You find food containers chewed open.
    Gnaw marks on paper or cardboard food containers are common when you have a mouse infestation. You may also see these chew marks on baseboards or furniture.
  4. You notice a musky odor.
    House mice will emit a mucky odor. This odor gets worse the more mice there are present. So, a mucky smell you can't place may indicate a mouse problem.

How to Get Rid of Mice

Once you notice the signs of a mouse infestation, it is time to act. You do not want to let a mouse problem get out of hand. While most mice are not aggressive, they can still cause a lot of problems. A home without mice is much safer than a home with mice.

The following removal ideas should help you get rid of the mice in your home.

  1. Purchase traps.
    The most accessible way to remove mice for most homeowners is traps. There are many types of traps available today. We recommend staying away from the old-fashioned glue traps. These are inhumane and do not work well. Quick kill traps are best but they may not solve a large mouse problem.
  2. Get a cat.
    Obviously, this is not a solution for everyone. You have to like cats, be able to take car of one, and not mind having a cat with claws in your home. But, if y ou are a cat lover, bringing home a mousing cat may be a great solution. Cats hunt mice for fun, so you will not have to train the behavior. If mousing is the idea, consider a female cat. They are often more committed to hunting.
  3. Call a mouse removal company.
    The best long-term mouse solution is to hire a mouse exterminator. We at GoLocal Pest Control can help you find the best company in your location. Just visit our website to find out more about our process.
