Today, let’s dive into the captivating world of mice! And I promise no unwanted guests on this ride—just pure, friendly, mouse-related chitchat. Let’s roll!
How Many Mice Constitute an Infestation?
Imagine you saw a mouse scurrying around. Now, you’re wondering: “Is it just a lone ranger, or is a secret mouse party happening in my house?” In perspective, if you spot multiple mice during daylight hours or find evidence like droppings, chewed materials, or nests, you’re likely hosting more than just a few. Mice are primarily nocturnal; seeing one during the day hints that many others are lurking around.
Detective Work: Unraveling Mouse Entry Points
Let’s revert to our old standby…thinking like a pest.
- Natural Gas Lines: These are often open invitations for our furry friends.
- Plumbing Fixtures: These can be the mice equivalent of a luxury spa entrance if not sealed properly.
- Cable or Phone Lines: These are fun tunnels for the whiskered wonders.
- HVAC and Crawl Space Vents: Mice see these as grand gateways to mouse paradise (your pantry).
Remember our trusty friends: caulking and expanding foam? Time to reintroduce them to those spots! But always ensure these places are mouse-free before sealing. You wouldn’t want to trap anyone accidentally, would you?
