What are the clear signs of a Mouse infestation?
Mice are difficult to physically locate because they are nocturnal and crepuscular (active between dawn and dusk). There are a few signs, nevertheless, that could indicate rodent activity and the need for assistance. These could include:
One mouse can produce between 50 and 60 droppings per night. These can be spread out over a wide area, but a pronounced concentration may indicate a spot of vigorous activity.
Noises: Despite their small size, mice can be heard moving around the house and scratching. This is normal if your infestation is in the loft and may be heard through the ceiling. The House Mouse, who enjoys warm weather, is considerably more likely to be the cause of any disturbances you may hear.
Damage: Mice need to chew and bite on things all the time to keep their teeth from getting too long. They have been seen nibbling on cables, wires, wood, and plastic because they don’t care what is used to make these things.
Smell: In areas with a high population density, mice can be recognised by their ammonia-like odour. This is comparable to rats, though, and a Farnborough pest control expert can help identify the exact pest you are dealing with.
