Signs Mice Are Trying to Burrow Into Your Home This Fall

As the weather begins to change and the turn of the season is in full swing, those thinking-ahead mice are already looking for somewhere to hunker down in before the really cold weather gets here. If that’s the case with your home, there may be signs that you have a mouse trying this with you. Here are a few early warnings that mice might be looking to take up residence in yours:

Gnawed Areas Outside the Home

If you have wood baseboards or other, non-brick or metal areas along the ground level, attic area, and basically anywhere in between then you have places where mice can enter. Look for spots where there has been chewing and scratching. This is an excellent sign that mice are trying to find a way to get inside your home.

Faint Sounds of Scratching and Clawing at Night

Mice are very rarely seen during the day as they are nocturnal animals. This means that most of their activity takes place at night after they have slept most of the day. This is the time when they eat and hunt for various necessities. One of those necessities is shelter. Therefore, if you can hear the sound of scratching outside a window or even gnawing, that is the culprit you’ve been looking for.

Track and Rub Marks

For the times when they have already gotten inside the house, you will want to notice that as soon as possible. Preventative measures will no longer work at this point. Mice have routine paths that they develop whenever they find a new place to live. They do this to stay safe and close to their nesting spot. As they go back and forth they leave stains on walls and wear the carpet. This is due to the oil in their fur.
