Do Mice Come Indoors During Winter? Central Kentucky’s Pest and Termite Extermination Experts Explain, Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

Like many animals, mice seek food, warmth, and shelter when winter arrives. With their diminutive size and endless persistence, they can easily slip through the cracks in a home’s foundation and the crevices in the walls. However, despite their initial stealth, bad habits quickly reveal their whereabouts.

To know if mice have invaded your home, the termite extermination and pest control experts recommend keeping an eye out for the following:

  • Gnaw Marks: From food containers to furniture, mice gnaw at everything. This isn't merely a voracious appetite. Their teeth have a tendency to grow quickly and incessantly and gnawing keeps them at a reasonable size.
  • MiceScattered Food: Despite the gnawing and hunger, mice still scatter their food as they work through it. Should you spot this, as well as the gnaw marks, you take note of the location. When the time comes, it will be a prime spot for bait boxes or traps.
  • Droppings: Granular and usually around a quarter of an inch, droppings can determine the extent of the infestation. Be careful and thorough when cleaning these up; they usually carry harmful bacteria and disease. If you think they've gotten into a food container, don't risk your health; just throw the food out.

Once you've discovered any or all of these signs, it's time to call the professionals. Call Premier Termite & Pest Control for an estimate for services provided for mice control  (859) 255-0696 (859) 626-9600 (859)744-9500 or (859)498-4911.
