House mouse (Mus musculus)
Deer Mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus)
Three common types of mice are the House mouse (Mus musculus), the Deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), and the White-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus). Your house mouse is usually gray-brown in color with an almost hairless tail. The deer mouse and white-footed mouse are two-toned in color, this consists of a reddish-brown backs and a white belly, with furry tails.
Signs you have mice:
- Squeaking, scratching, and the sounds of chewing coming from your walls, ceiling, or between floors.
- Droppings usually ranging from 1/8-1/4″ long and slender. These can be found along counters, cabinets, drawers, basement floors along walls, near food, under sinks, and in attics.
- There may be a oily/dirty look that has gotten darker over time along areas that the mice travel heavily. (This comes from the dirt and oils that are deposited by the mouse and it brushes against surfaces)
- Small smooth tunnels in your attic or basement insulation.
- gnaw marks
- Nesting material in wads .
What can Eviction Nuisance Wildlife Control do to solve your mouse problem?
- We Do Not Use Poisons to Control Mice!!!! So please don’t ask. If you decide to use a company that uses poison, note mice do not go searching for water after they ingest it. Most times the mouse will end up dying in a wall or other area of the home causing a foul odor that will remain until the decomposition process is done. We prefer trapping and exclusion.
- A complete inspection of your home needs to be done.
- Exclusion work to prevent the re-entry of mice. *Best choice*(note a mouse can fit through small holes. If their head fits the body will follow)
- We will locate any and all entry points that can be found.
- Once the determination of what has made your home a place mice like has been made we will work with you to solve your mouse problem.
