How do you know if you have Mice taking up rent in your home?

Mice can be pests, they eat through furniture and electrical wiring, and create a bit of havoc for your indoor pets like cats and dogs who will constantly be sniffing in search of finding these small rodents.

They're cute but can be a nuisance (and destructive), they're dirty and can bring in disease via saliva and droppings, so it's always best to treat the problem before it gets worse.

So, the initial step would be to call in the team from Jenner Pest Control to help our with any mouse and rat problem you think you may have.

Here's our handy checklist to uncover if you have mice taking up residence:

Visual Signs:

  • Damaged Furniture & Electrical wiring

If you've uncovered damaged furniture or electrical wiring, it's best to act quickly. Damaged electrical wiring can pose a risk to you and your family.

  • Droppings

Mice droppings can sometimes be found behind warm appliances such as ovens and washing machines, as they like to nest in warmer areas during cooler months.

If you find mice droppings, clean them up carefully using gloves, and give us a call.

  • Larger holes in walls and entry points

Mice will create larger access points to get into your home, so if you find a larger hole than it normally should appear it could be you've had a few unwanted visitors get into your home.

Sensory Signs:

  • Smell

Mouse urine and droppings can smell like a musky odour. If you're finding a certain smell in your home but cannot find the source, it could possibly be mouse urine.

  • Pets being disturbed

Your pets have a heightened sense of hearing, making them the perfect partner to sniff out these unwanted pests. You may find your dogs or cats are scratching at certain areas, trying to alert you to their discovery. At this point you've most likely found the source of the nest or entry point, so give us a call and we'll be out to help assist you.
