When mice invade your home, it’s not just a nuisance- it’s a danger. Although these critters may seem small and cute, they are unsanitary and can carry an extensive range of diseases that can be transferred to humans via the air, direct contact, urine, and droppings. That’s why it’s important to get rid of them as soon as possible.
So, how can you tell if you have mice in your home? Although they are pretty crafty, they’re not quite smart enough to clean up after themselves and exercise caution.
You can often figure out whether or not you have a rodent as a resident by looking for droppings or urine odors. When you’re a mouse, the world is your bathroom.
Other common signs of mice in your home are from their inability to leave things alone. Mice will often gnaw on objects, leaving little chewed up dental records in your walls or floorboard. They will often leave a trail of grease or dirt from their fur.
If you suspect you have mice, check common entry points such as cracks in the floors and walls. The attic is also a familiar spot for mice to call home so remember to check there for droppings, urine, and nests.
