I Think I Have Mice, How Do I Know For Sure?

When the temperatures drop and the snow starts to fly, pest problems from the past Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons have almost forgotten and we are enjoying the cold winter months without the worry of invading pests. But one day you walk into the kitchen to see a mouse scurrying across the floor or hear scratching noises from deep within your walls and ceiling while trying to enjoy a quiet evening at home. Unfortunately, pests do not go away during the winter, in fact they often turn into our house guests, sometimes even without our knowledge all winter long. There are some telltale signs of mouse activity in your home:

  • Chewed electrical wiring

  • Gnawed on walls, boxes, books, and other hard surfaces

  • Mouse droppings

  • Holes in boxes of food

  • Nests made of newspaper or fabric scraps

Since mice are prolific breeders, chances are if a few mice have gotten into your home it will soon turn into 20 or 50 or possibly even more.

Damages Caused By Mice and Other Rodents

You wouldn’t think something so small and furry could cause a lot of damage, but don’t underestimate a mouse. These small creatures, along with rats, squirrels and other rodents are consistent gnawers, having to chew on wood and other hard surfaces to keep their two large front incisors from becoming too long. They are known to chew on electrical wiring and plumbing pipes, possibly causing electrical fires and water damage to your home. The also use storage boxes or seasonal clothing to build nests in attics, closets, basements and garages, staying safe and warm throughout the harsh winter months. In their search for food, mice invade pantries and cupboards, contaminating food and water sources with their feces and urine and spreading bacteria and disease.
