JG Pest Control – Do You Have A Mouse Infestation?
If you have seen the mouse in the house for yourself, then chances are that you know you have a mouse infestation in your home. However, there are other ways that you can tell if you have a mouse infestation in your home. For example, you may see their droppings down the back of your fridge, or corners of the cupboards. You may also hear the scratching from where they are hiding in your wall cavities.
Mice are highly adaptable and very small. This means that they can go to great lengths to avoid being found. In this blog post we help you understand if you might have a mouse infestation in your home. If you do, there is nothing to worry about – but only if you act quickly. Give our mouse removal team a call and we will remove the mouse infestation for you, so the problem is resolved.
If you have a small mouse invasion in your home, it’s likely that you’ll spot their droppings. These are small dark droppings. Often, they look like grease marks. At the backs of cupboards and in your cutlery drawers are often places you will spot these small mouse droppings. Newer mouse droppings will be shiny. However, older mouse droppings will be dry and crumbly. By seeing the type of droppings that you have, you will be able to see if they are from mice recently or not.
Mice, rats and other rodents have a very distinctive smell. This can sometimes be a very foul-smelling odour. If you have a very active mouse infestation in your home, then you may notice a nose wrinkly odour. This will smell of musty unpleasantness.
• Hiding Spaces
There are lots of places in your home that will be classed as a favourite ‘hiding space’ for mice. For example, mice love making a nest in lofts and eaves. They can often be found living behind kitchen appliances, unless cockroaches get their first as it is their favourite hiding place too. Mice like to be close to pipes as they can scurry up and down these with ease. They love staying in cavity walls too as they can live there without being spotted. You may also find mice in small crawl spaces, within your suspended ceiling or even in the airing cupboard.
While a mouse in your home may seem harmless enough, these creatures carry disease. They will steal your insulation, chew through wires and even urinate on your bedding and other belongings. If you think you may have mouse infestation in your home, call our team of mouse removal experts now.
