Mice will often build nests out of materials like paper or insulation.

4. Footprints

Another sign of a mouse infestation is the presence of footprints. Mice have small feet with five toes on each foot.

5. Screeching Sounds

Mice are nocturnal creatures, so you may not see them during the day. However, you may be able to hear them at night. Mice make high-pitched squeaking sounds, so if you hear these sounds coming from your walls or ceilings, it's a good indication of an infestation.

Why are mice attracted to certain places? 

Mice find warm spaces and areas of food and water sources appealing,mice in field and once they find these things, they'll establish routes or nests. For example, tight spaces in walls and attics are key locations due to their warmth, while the kitchen may provide food sources. Additionally, exposed trash or compost piles can easily draw mice in. Ultimately, mice have an innate ability to sniff out these important areas and places to live, which helps them survive.

Identification of mice:

Mice are typically greyish-brown with a pale or white underside, although colour can vary. They tend to be smaller than their rat cousins at just 10 inches tip-to-tail, including the tail. Since they are nocturnal creatures, mice will generally shy away from people during the day and become active towards sundown. 

Mice are damaging pests: 

Mice tend to destroy by gnawing and chewing on fabrics, books, furniture, insulation materials, cardboard boxes and electrical wires. The result can be costly repairs or replacements of damaged items, not to mention possible damage caused by short circuits or electrical fires. Therefore, preventative measures are important in keeping these pesky rodents away from your home.
