The mouse is one of the most troublesome and costly rodents in the United States. They cause considerable damage to structures and property, and they can transmit pathogens that cause disease.
Identifying A Mouse Infestation
If you see droppings, fresh gnaw marks, and tracks around your home or office, that may indicate areas where mice are active. And because house mice are so small, they can gain entry into homes and other buildings much more easily than rats. This means that mice infestations are roughly 10-20 times more common than rat infestations. Mice nests are made from finely shredded paper or other fibrous material so seeing shredding paper around is another indicator. House mice have a characteristic musky odor that reveals their presence.
