Here at Castle Exterminators, we believe you deserve to feel comfortable in your home, and it’s hard to do that if you have to share that home with unwanted visitors such as mice. Our team has extensive experience in mice control, and we want to help you keep these pests out of your space. In this article, we’ll go over a few ways to tell if you have a mouse problem–if you notice any of the following signs, we encourage you to give us a call to get our mice control team on the job.
- Droppings- One clear sign that it’s time to call mice control services is the presence of mouse droppings around your home. Mouse droppings are dark, moist, and about the size of grains of rice. They will dry out over time, and droppings that have been there for a while will often crumble into dust.
- Scratching Sounds- Another sign that you need mice control services is scratching or skittering sounds. Mice are nocturnal, so you are more likely to hear them moving around at night, and the sound will usually come from inside the walls or ceiling. In addition to scratching, you may also hear gnawing sounds or squeaks–the point is, if you hear any of these noises, you should give us a call right away.
- Gnaw Marks- A third sign that you need mice control services is gnaw marks or other damage from the mice’s teeth. Mice and other rodents have teeth that continue to grow throughout their lives, which means they need to chew constantly in order to keep their teeth worn down to a manageable size. You may see teeth marks on your furniture or start to experience electrical problems as they gnaw on the wires–in either case, you should call our team.
