Winter Signs Mice Are Trying to Come In

While it is true that you always need to be on the lookout for rodent infestation all throughout the year, wintertime is an especially active season for mice and rats. The reason is because they are in desperate need of a warm place to stay. If they have their sights set on your home, here are some of the warning signs to look for :

You Hear Noises Earlier in the Evening

Mice are nocturnal creatures and most of their activity takes place after the sun goes down. Although this may mean that you don’t hear them outside during the summer, the winter brings about a much earlier nightfall. As a result, you may be sitting in your living room or den and hear the little buggers trying to claw their way in from the outside.

You Hear Activity in the Basement

This indicates that you already had a mouse problem and didn’t even know it. Mice look for shelter all year but when it gets cold, they seek warmth. This has them migrating from the basement to the attic during the winter. You will be able to hear their relocation through the walls if this is happening in your home.

You Notice Predators Around Your Home

Another sign that mice are trying to get inside your home this winter is the attention that they will attract. If you are seeing owls, wild cats, and other natural predators of mice, chances are that they have found a food source near your home. You want to be extra diligent about getting rid of them now. If you don’t you could be facing an entirely new and much larger pest control issue.

Don’t let your winter season be ruined by unwanted vermin. Make sure that you take the necessary precautions to keep them outdoors where they belong. The thing about a rodent infestation is one they are inside, it is hard to get rid of them. Their numbers will continue to grow until the problem becomes impossible to ignore.
