How do I know if I have a mouse problem?

If you think you’ve spotted signs of a mice infestation, you’re in the right place. This quick guide to mice will help you determine if it is in fact mice you are dealing with.

There are a number of tell-tale signs that you have a mouse infestation:

  • Droppings: mouse droppings are small black pellets the size of a grain of rice. Fresh droppings will be soft and moist. Each mouse can leave around 80 droppings per day. 
  • Smell : mice urinate frequently and are associated with a strong smell of ammonia.
  • Nests: you may come across a nest, mice will gather materials and will create a nest, usually in lofts, under floorboards or in airing cupboards.
  • Smear Marks: mice leave behind a oily residue from their fur of built up dirt. The more often they use the same runs, the residue will transfer to the walls and leave behind brown/black marks. We call these smear marks.

Mice are generally nocturnal, and like to feed little and often, from crumbs or left over food. They do not need a separate water source. In ideal conditions mice can live up to a year or longer. A female mouse can have in excess of 40 young in a year so it is very important that any evidence or sightings are reported straight away.

At Beaver we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimises economic, health, and environmental risks.

We follow the following 5 steps for mouse control London:

  • Inspection – In line with the CRRU guidance, ensuring a through survey is carried out is essential. This will be a full environmental assessment identifying: pest infestations, access points, sources of food, water & harbourage, proofing options, and any external factors which could result in pest infestations i.e overgrown vegetation.
  • Exclusion – proofing is carried out where possible by our technicians, any larger proofing jobs need will be identified and explained to the customer. Proofing is the best defence against rodent ingress.
  • Restriction – Restricting the sources of food, water and harbourage will make your home less appealing for pests and can be an effective way to prevent re-infestation.
  • Destruction – This is what is says, destroying pests that do manage to find their way into your home. Destruction does not necessarily mean baits though, the CRRU risk hierarchy will be used to identify the least harmful way to go about this.
  • Communicate – Communication is perhaps one of the most important parts of the process as a whole. At every stage of this process our technicians will be communicating their actions and importantly the reasons for their actions for you. Explaining the importance of exclusion and restriction will in the long term benefit you as you will reduce the risk of repeated infestations. It is very important that the recommendations the technicians provide are followed to support you in having a pest-free home.

No, whilst they are both in the rodent family, rats and mice are different and have different behaviour, so it’s important to identify the correct pest to ensure the most effective treatment is used.

Using a professional company is the quickest and most effective way to get rid of mice.
