Mice look for warm, dark areas of your home to nest. This can be in the walls, in your basement, or under your refrigerator. Once they’re in your home they will eat whatever they can find and chew their way through plastic, wires and more. homeowners who have experienced a mouse infestation know that these rodents are not as cute and friendly as they are portrayed in children’s movies. You may see mice scurry across the floor, or if your pets are barking or hissing and pawing under appliances, they might be alerting you of a mouse infestation.Spire Pest Control is here to help. We have years of experience getting rid of mice, and are here to help you feel safe in your home.
You might already know you have a mouse infestation, but here are a few of the most common signs a mouse exterminator would look for.
The first sign of a mouse infestation is their droppings. Mice aren’t particular about where they leave their droppings, so they will appear anywhere the mice are hanging out, including the backside of drawers, inside pantries or cabinets, in basements or attic spaces, under water heaters or heating units, etc.
Mice may make noise at night, usually scurrying sounds, scratching, or squeaking.
Mice are rodents, which means their teeth are constantly growing. They have a strong urge to chew things to wear down their teeth, including wood, cardboard, food containers, or plastic.
Although less common than the other signs of mice, a mouse may be seen in the open when looking for food, water, or shelter.

Spire Pest Control.
No bugs. Simply better.
The best way to treat for a mouse infestation is with preventative measures, such as filling up tiny gaps and cracks around the house, and also fixing cracks in the foundation. Store your food in airtight containers to make your home less appealing to them as well.
When mice have already invaded your home, it’s best to callSpire Pest Control to let us help you feel safe and comfortable again.
The biggest problem mice will usually give homeowners is contaminating food and chewing through walls, containers, furniture, fabric, paper, and electrical wiring. If it gets to that point, you know you’d better call a mouse exterminator likeSpire Pest Control.
Signs of mice include:
Chewed cloths or paper
Squeaks, squeals, strange noises, and movements, especially at night
Tiny mouse footprints in dirt or piles of food (eg prints in flour or sugar)
Holes chewed through food containers or in the walls
Unusual alert behavior of house cats or dogs
Mice have an extraordinary ability to squeeze themselves into tiny spaces. If the outside wall of a house has any gaps, a mouse can fit into a hole the diameter of a nickel or smaller.
Mice can fit into gaps or cracks the size of a nickel or even a dime.
As long as the mouse can fit its little head in a gap or hole, its unique bone structure allows it to pull itself through.
Once inside your home, mice will look for hiding places with plenty of food and water nearby, so the kitchen or food storage areas are obvious hiding spots.
Mice can eat a lot of different sorts of food, especially foods that are high in sugar or protein. With their strong sense of smell, they go looking for foods they prefer, and the typical kitchen is full of them. That’s why it’s extremely important to seal all your food — including pet food — in airtight containers.
Body size. Adult mice are much smaller than adult rats.
Feces. Mice feces are brown or black and about the size and shape of rice grains. Norwegian rat droppings are larger and more cylindrical, and roof rat feces are larger and more banana-shaped.
Tails. Rat tails are hairless, whereas mice tails grow tiny hairs. Mouse tails are proportionately longer compared to their body size than rat tails.
Ears. Mouse ears are more rounded than a rat’s, and rat ears are slightly narrower than a mouse’s.
Body shape. Rats, especially the Norwegian rat, have more of a hunch to their bodies than mice.
