Experiencing mice in your home is more than a mere inconvenience; they pose a very serious risk to your health given that they urinate frequently. Furthermore they can cause damage to your property & belongings, e.g. gnawed furniture, upholstery & flooring, as well as chewing through electrical cables. Without immediate treatment a mice infestation can rapidly spread with the potential for a population explosion in a relatively short time frame.
Here is a checklist to tell if you have mice in your property:
Distinctive sharp ammonic aroma near main infestation area
Dark small droppings the size of sesame seed.
Scratching & squeaking noises behind floors, walls or ceilings
Shredded bits of paper foil or wood shavings.
Nests or nesting materials, usually found in close proximity to food sources
Mice will stay close to their nest when foraging for food, typically no more than 10-25 feet. They are unpredictable in their feeding especially when there are many food sources on hand. In scenarios such as this, mice can return to food sources up to 25 times a night; on average one mouse will consume 3-4 grams of food per night. Mice prefer to travel adjacent to walls & other edges; they use their whiskers as a sensor to help them navigate as their eye sight is actually very poor.
