What to Do If You Spot a Mouse in Your House

As fall turns the weather colder, mice will likely begin entering your Waldorf, MD home. You can find a mouse in your house in any season. However, as the weather becomes colder, they are more likely to seek out warm places to live. Your home likely fits their requirements just fine.

Mice can be a major nuisance in our homes. They can spread disease, ruin food, and destroy walls and wires. They also reproduce quickly, so they can be hard to get rid of once they get a foothold into your home. If you spot a mouse, you need to take immediate action. The rest of this article will describe exactly what that action should be.


How to spot a mouse

Spotting a mouse does not have to be hard. There are a few signs that clearly indicate you have a mouse problem in your Waldorf home.

  1. Actually seeing a mouse. This one is a little less likely. Mice are nocturnal, which means they move around the most at night. However, if you see a mouse in your home, you can bet there are others that you can’t see as well.
  2. If a mouse has been chewing on your baseboards or walls, you will see small bite marks. These can even appear in plastic food containers. Often the bite marks will be near mouse droppings, which is a clear indicator of a mouse problem.
  3. Seeing mouse droppings, especially if they are fresh, will tell you that you have a mouse in your house.


What to do if you find a mouse?

Spotting a mouse may not be hard but getting rid of them can be difficult. Mice are notoriously hard to completely remove from a home. Of course, this does not mean that you should panic if you spot a mouse. Instead, follow these steps. Your mouse problem will be gone in no time.


1) Set mouse traps.

Mice are such a common pest that mouse traps are extremely easy to find. They should be readily available online or in any store. Some mouse traps are better than others, though. We do not recommend glue traps, as they are ineffective and cruel. Instead, look for quick kill traps that can be reset.


2) Seal any entrances to your home.

In addition to removing the mice that are already in your home, you will need to keep new mice from entering. The best way to do this is to seal any potential entrances to your home. Mice can fit through a hole the size of a dime. This includes cracks in your foundation, roof, siding, doors, and windows. Hiring a professional company is probably the best way to ensure all potential entrance points to your home are removed.


3) Contact Barefoot Pest Control.
