You have seen a mouse or two in your home and are wondering whether you should do anything about it. The truth is that many homeowners don’t take mice in the home seriously until they have an infestation. If you see a mouse it is important to investigate and find out whether there are more. You will hear them scurrying around at night and you will also see rat droppings around the house. Check furniture that is made out of wood and fabric – mice love to eat that kind of thing. You may also find mice nests in the attic or in warm, dark corners.
The reason why you should take mice seriously is how fast they breed. They breed exceptionally quickly; you may think you only have one or two mice in your home but before you know it this number can increase to hundreds because they breed so quickly. To break it down, mice have a gestation period of 3 weeks and they give birth to an average of 8 mice. If you don’t take action right away you can be sure that before long your home will be overrun and you will have to fork out a lot of money to do repairs to your property.
Some people recommend rat poison as a solution. That is not the way to go; for starters, you will not get more than a few. The other thing about poisoning mice is that once they die in hidden corners they will stink up your home.
