Signs of a mice infestation in your home

Feb 2, 2022 | Blog

There are a handful of ways to tell if house mice have made your home their own, including the following tell-tale signs of an infestation:

  1. Gnaw marks: Gnaw marks may be either rough or smooth.
  2. Droppings: House mouse droppings may be either soft and moist or dried and hard. They are rod shaped and pointed on the ends.
  3. Tracks: House mice leave 4-toed prints with their front feet and 5-toed prints with their hind feet.
  4. Rub marks: House mice often leave oily rub marks on walls along which they travel.
  5. Burrows: House mice burrow using nesting materials such as insulation.
  6. Runways: House mice usually use the same pathways. Active runways are sometimes visible, with rub marks, droppings, and footprints along them.
  7. Odor: The odor of house mice urine may become distinct if there is a large number of house mice in a particular area. House mice use their strong-smelling urine to communicate with one another.
  8. Damaged goods: Mice prefer seeds or cereals but will readily eat insects trapped on glue boards.
  9. Actual rodent: If you see a mouse scurrying across the kitchen floor, there is likely a family of mice hiding out of sight.
