Common FAQs on Mice
Q: How do I know if I have mice in my home or business?
A: The most common sign of a mouse infestation is droppings on counters, behind appliances, and within cabinets. You may also hear scratching or scurrying noises inside your walls or ceilings. If you suspect you have mice, contact a professional pest control company to help identify the issue and provide treatment options.
Q: What kind of mouse species are commonly found in Rutherford County?
A: The house mouse (Mus musculus) is the most common species found in Rutherford County. They have an oval-shaped body with light brown or gray fur, a lighter-colored underbelly, and a tail that is almost as long as their body. They can grow up to 3 ½ inches long with their tail adding another 2 ½ to 4 inches.
Q: Are there any other signs of an infestation besides droppings?
A: Yes! Other signs that can indicate you have a mouse problem include chewing damage on food packaging, shredded material such as paper or fabric used for nesting, odors from urine and/or feces, and footprints near walls and baseboards. Additionally, if you see one mouse it’s usually an indication that there are more hidden away somewhere.
Q: Can I prevent mice from entering my property?
A: To prevent mice from entering your property it’s important to make sure all doors and windows are sealed properly. Additionally, keeping food stored in airtight containers instead of out in the open will help deter them from entering your home or business. Finally, it’s important to be aware of any entry points like pipes or vents that can provide access into your building and seal these off with steel wool or caulk if they exist.
Q: How quickly can mice breed?
A: Mice are prolific breeders; they can reproduce every three weeks with up to five pups per litter! This makes them difficult to eliminate once they begin reproducing rapidly on your property which is why it’s important to contact a professional pest control service when dealing with a suspected infestation.
