Found Mouse Droppings: If you think you might have mice in your house you can start looking for signs. The best thing to do is to actually call out a professional to do a full inspection. If you want to do some of the investigation you can start by looking for droppings. There are a few places that you can check. The first is to look around the edges of the home and the areas you believe a mouse can fit. They are not shy about leaving their droppings so they can be just about anywhere. They are cautious so the droppings are more than likely along the sides of a room or window seal or doorway. These are areas that they use to pass from one room to the next. If you see small elongated brown pellets they are likely left by a mouse. Be sure you are careful if you clean them up. You want to cover your mouth and nose and use gloves if possible. The droppings can be carrying disease so it is best to be careful.
Mouse Teeth Marks: The next thing you can do is look for areas that the mice might be getting into. They are looking for food to eat and that means they are chewing through packaging and more to get access to it. They are able to chew through plastic and cardboard to get to the food that you have stored. If you see areas that are being chewed you want to make sure that you call out a professional right away. This is a major sign that they are in the house and that they are contaminating your food.
Mouse Smell: You can also use your nose to find signs that there are mice in your house. The mice droppings as well as their urine will leave a very musty smell throughout the house.
