Signs of Mice in Your Kitchen

There are few things more disgusting than dealing with mice in your home, much less your kitchen. Come on, that is the place where you prepare and eat food. The thought of little mice feet, teeth, and claws going through your food before you eat it is enough to make anyone’s skin crawl. Here are a few ways to tell if you are dealing with this problem:

Droppings

Obviously, the reason you must look for clues or indicators of a mouse’s presence is because you haven’t actually seen one yet. If you had, then it would already be time to get in touch with an exterminator. Otherwise, you are playing detective in a little human-and-mouse game.

It goes without saying that droppings anywhere in your kitchen or dining area would be nearly conclusive of the problem. Mouse droppings are too big to be any kind of bug, insect, or even a lizard. They are also too small to be your pet’s; that is, if we’re taking cats and dogs. Of course, if you have hamsters running around loose, that could get confusing.

Tiny Footprints

Many times, you can spot tiny mouse prints in areas on your counters, stovetops, island tops, or other places where something may have been spilled or left uncleaned. Little patches of sugar or flour, along with sugary soda or other drinks may show where your rodent intruder scurried across the area. They also may be present in locations that rarely get cleaned, such as the top of the refrigerator as well.

Gnawed Through Containers and Boxes

If you are pulling cans, boxes, and bags of food out of your pantry or cabinets only to find they have been chewed or scratched through, then there really isn’t much more evidence you should need. Mice love coming in for a free meal. Throw all this food out and get in contact with a team of professionals who can handle it for you.

Don’t ignore the warning signs that come with having a mouse problem in your kitchen or anywhere else in your home. Let the professionals at Mice Mob Exterminators come take care of it for you ASAP.
