The changing weather leaves mice looking for warmth and shelter any place they can find it. Your home might just be that safe place for a little mouse family. Personally, I'm not thrilled at the prospect of bunking with these creepy little creatures. If you suspect you have mice in the house it can be the most nerve-wracking obsession. Getting up every time you hear a noise, and tracking all the little "evidence" but never actually seeing the culprit. You don't need to call pest control. You can take care of this on your own. The first step is figuring out what you're actually dealing with. There are three ways to figure out if you have mice in your home.
Mice will make noise in the walls and ceiling. Listen for them at night.
You might not actually see a mouse, but if you see little holes in bread bags or mouse droppings left around you can be sure they're near.
Spread some powder or flour where you think the mice are. Leave it for a few days and you'll notice tiny footprints if they are in-fact scurrying around there.
Once you know that you do have mice in the house you'll want to get rid of them. This article tells you how to get them out and keep them from taking up residence with you again
