and what you should do if you  find out that you do have mice.

According to pests.org, there are many different  ways to identify whether you have mice or not.  

There are certain steps you should take as well  as treatment options you can do. To find out if  

you have mice in your home, follow the next steps  in this video. If you do find out you have mice,  

it is best to call a professional to find out  what can be done. You can also try home remedies,  

but if they don't work you may  have to call someone for help.

So, here are things you should do and signs  

you should look for that you  may have a mouse infestation.

Small footprints and droppings: the first  thing you should do when inspecting for  

mice is grab a flashlight. Look into the small  corners or areas of your home where dust may  

be collected and see if there are small  fotoprints. If you see tiny footprints,  

you likely have mice. In addition to this,  if you also see small droppings in cupboards,  

on the floor, or next to the footprints,  it is another sign that you have mice.

Gnaw marks on furniture and scratching noises  in your walls: if you notice that the bottoms  

of your tables or other furniture  have tiny little gnaw marks on them,  

it could be mice. Another telltale sign  that you have mice is scratching noises  

in your walls. They may keep you up at night  and are usually very annoying to deal with.  

If you suddenly start hearing scratching  noises but and have no idea what they are,  

starting looking around for gnaw marks,  droppings and footprints. You may have mice.

Signs that your food has been tampered  with: if you have cupboard with snacks  

in it and notice that there seem to be  bite marks or holes in the packages,  

there is likely only one culprit:  and that is mice. Be sure to check  

all your cupboards thoroughly to see if  any of your food has been tampered with.

Check your entire property: When checking your  home for mice, use your flashlight and shine  

it along the walls and other areas you may have  seen mouse droppings or hear scratching noises.  

Be on the lookout for holes and chew marks.  You should also make sure to avoid leaving food  

crumbs around as much as possible. Always clean  up after yourself when you are done eating, and  

wipe food crumbs from your floors, tabletops, and  counters, because you better bet that at night,  

when mice smell food, they will come to it. So  avoid this at all costs by cleaning up any sign  

of food or crumbs that may be in your kitchen,  living room, or any other part of your home.

What to do when you have mice: If you find  out that you have mice after inspecting your  

home - don't freak out. You can try at home  remedies to get rid of them, but it is always  

best to contact a rodent professional to sanitize  and clean your home. And remember - if you ever  

see a mouse in your home, don't just forget about  it. You can bet that if you see even one mouse,  

that you've got a whole family of them. They could  be in your attic, your garage, or other small,  

hidden places. The reason for this is because  mice usually live in groups. So the moment you  

suspect you have mice, you have to take action.  The first thing you should do is set up mouse  

traps and try to identify any entry points in your  home. If you want to try at home remedies before  

calling a pest expert, do that. But remember - you  have to act quick! Don’t wait to get rid of your  

mouse infestation, because female mice can average  five to ten litters each year. They multiply very  

quickly - and if you wait too long, your mouse  infestation could quickly grow into a big problem.
