Determine if You Have a Mouse Problem

The first step to dealing with an infestation of mice is knowing you have a problem at all. When mice invade your home, you may not catch more than a fleeting glimpse of one scurrying off into hole or under furniture. However, there are numerous types of evidence that they leave behind to alert you to their presence, such as:

  • Droppings – Mouse droppings resemble small chocolate pellets and are often found on counters and in drawers.
  • Noises – Mice can be noisy little creatures, and if you have a mouse problem, they can be heard in the ceilings, in the walls, and throughout the house.
  • Other Proof – Mice have a knack for finding food. When you have mice in the house, you are likely to find small holes chewed in bags of bread, cereal, cookies, and other food in the pantry.

How to Get Rid of Them

The first step to take is to eliminate their sources of food. Because mice can easily chew through packages and paper containers, you should instead store your food in glass or porcelain containers. In addition to safer storage for your food, it’s equally important to make sure you keep the kitchen, cupboard, and any area where food is often used, clean and free from spills or crumbs.

The next step is to set up traps around the home. The two primary choices for traps are the lethal spring-loaded traps and the non-lethal sticky traps. Set your traps where you believe there is a great deal of mouse activity, such as under or behind large pieces of furniture and other dark locations. You should check the traps often (daily if possible) and move them around regularly if you’re not catching anything.

During this process of eliminating your furry pests, you should perform a thorough check of the outside of your home. Inspect the foundation, walls, stairs, and any other spots that may have a small hole or potential entryway. Plug the holes immediately.

When to Call in the Professionals

These home methods can be very useful and effective when you’re only dealing with a mouse or two. However, where there is one mouse, there is likely a nest, meaning more trouble than you initially thought.
