Seeing a mouse or seeing droppings is the #1 sign you have a rodent issue.
Other mouse detection signs:
- Destruction to food or property (particularly gnaw marks).
- Erratic pet behavior.
- Neighbors also complaining about rodent issues.
- Find oily 'rub' marks on baseboards and walls.
If mouse is not caught in 2-3 days, place trap in alternate location where mouse activity is suspected.
Place two traps 5-10 feet apart near mouse activity. When placing traps, target areas with high mouse activity: near refrigerators, stoves, and pantries; between washers and dryers; along baseboards.
