How To Spot If A Mouse Is In Your House
House Mouse Behaviour and Diet
In the wild, mice live under a year due to predation and harsh environments. However, in protected environments such as your home, mice can live two to three years and breed a lot. One female can have between 5 and 10 litters per year, so the population can increase very quickly!
Mice will eat almost anything but they prefer cereals and insects. Keeping a spotless kitchen is an essential part of getting any mouse infestation under control.
Signs of Infestation
Mice are arguably the most difficult pest to eradicate. Several (4-6) service visits is common for mice and rodent control. House mice are more active in the evening and if you hear them climbing along walls or scurrying their way along the floor (most likely running from a hiding place) you’ll know you have a house mouse infestation.
Other signs to look for:
- Droppings (3-6 mm long with pointed ends)
- Tunnels (House mice like to build nests in dark, soft areas such as insulation)
- Sounds (scratching walls, squealing and running across the ceiling are common)
- Odour (House mice communicate with other rodents and a strong indicator of infestation)
