“Mouse!” is the last thing you want to hear your spouse or children yell in the other room. But for many Massachusetts and New Hampshire families, especially those that live in rural areas, it’s not an uncommon pest to deal with all year round! Then in late summer early fall, our calls for mice DOUBLE. And unfortunately, where there’s one, there’s many!
Droppings, or fecal pellets, are often seen left behind in places where food is stored like cabinets or pantries. They can also be found under sinks, inside cardboard boxes, and along baseboards.
Did you know that rodents can chew through plastic and lead pipes? They can also chew through wires behind walls, which increases the risk of fires.
Rodents prefer to nest in dark, secluded areas, such as an attic. House mice will use shredded paper, cotton, and wall insulation to build their nests in these quiet areas.
If you notice any grease or dirt marks along your walls, it could be from rodents. The oils on their body rubs off on walls and baseboards as they travel between their nest and food.
It’s certainly eerie to hear strange noises at night. Since rodents prefer dark, hidden spaces, it’s possible these noises could from a family of rodents scurrying around the house, between walls, or in your attic.
It is in a rodent’s nature to stay hidden and only move around at night. If you are seeing actual rodents, particularly during the day, it could be an indication that you have an infestation on your hands, as they are straying from typical behaviors to find food/water.
