5 Ways to Tell if you have a Mouse Problem

mrsvc-1) Food Debris: Mice chew their way into their food. Homeowners will often find holes in the bottom of dog food, bird seed, and pantry containers. At times, the chew pattern shows obvious teeth marks. Surrounding the container, crumbs, empty seed hulls, and other debris is often found. In the case of food sources like bird seed, this food is sometime found near nesting sites rather than at the spot it is extracted from.

2) Traffic Patterns: Mice have very specific traffic patterns. At most times they will try to hug a wall for more protection. In unfinished basements, you can sometimes spot dirt on the walls just under each joist in the ceiling where the mice actually swing themselves from one space to another.

3) Nesting or Entrance Debris: Mice love finding a cozy spot to sleep and give birth to their young. If you find areas with insulation or other debris kicked out conspicuously, take a close look. It could be a sign mouse activity is nearby. Wild mouse, in front of white background, studio shot

4) Sounds: One of the first signs of when most people notice they have a rodent problem, is a scratching sound or a pitter-patter in the walls or ceilings at night. Pay attention to where specifically the sound is heard and keep focusing on that area each day.

5) Fecal Matter & Urine: Make no excuse, mice are filthy, disgusting creatures. They have absolutely no control of their bowel movements or urination. They will do their business while they are doing all activities. It is very common to find abundant mouse droppings near food sources and nesting spots. These small pellets are oblong and pointed at one end and often are less than 1/32″ in diameter. The only way to spot urine is to use a black light, and homeowners would be horrified if they knew where and just how much mouse urine there are over food preparation areas and kitchen utensils. source: tomlinsonbomberger.com

brcmcBefore attempting any kind of exclusion is essential to verify that a nuisance is caused by bats in particular. Twittering and rustling sounds in old chimneys, often attributed to bats, may be caused by chimney swifts. If the “bats” swarm and ENTER the chimney at dusk, most likely these are swifts and can be evicted with a chimney cap in the winter. Scrambling, scratching, and thumping sounds coming from attics and walls may be caused by rats, mice, or flying squirrels. Bats often become noisy before leaving their roosts at sunset and may chatter on hot days when they move down attic walls to seek refuge from heat. Thus, an increase in chirping noises about dusk probably indicates bats. Any grouping of bats this noisy should easily be seen exiting the structure 15 minutes after local sunset in midsummer.

Droppings from insectivorous bats are easily distinguished from those of small rodents because of their friability. They are easily crushed with a pencil eraser which reveal shiny bits of undigested insect chitin (the exoskeleton of the insect). In contrast, rodent droppings are unsegmented, harder, and more fibrous. They do not contain shiny fragments.

Occasionally the droppings of birds that feed on insects may be found along with bat droppings. Bat droppings never contain the white chalky (uric acid) material characteristic of the feces of these other animals.

The Openings:
Usually there are only a few openings to a house bat roost, and bat proofing is relatively simple because visible bat accesses can be easily located and blocked. However, some very old homes having large attics with dormers may have many small, obscure holes will be more difficult to bat proof. On any structure, generally assume that the soffit and fascia will need sealed on all sides. On some tin and slate roofs, all edges may need sealed (along the gutters especially). Finally, any place there is a change in roof pitch could be a bat entrance as well. source: batmanagement.com
