Mice are one of the most common household pests and can quickly become a problem if not immediately addressed. Because of their nimble and curious nature, mice can slip into your home through cracks and holes as small as a quarter. Once mice have invaded, they will build nests and breed, causing an infestation. Mice prefer to reside in areas where they can easily access food, water, and shelter from the elements. Furthermore, residential homes are safe from their natural predators, making it an ideal spot to build a nest. While the idea of trapping mice on your own may be tempting, calling the mice removal professionals at Critter Control® of Boston is the best way to get rid of mice.

Often found in damp areas (under sinks) or close to where food is kept, stored, or consumed.
Finding gnaw marks on wires, containers for food (human or pet), wood or plastic is a sure sign that a furry creature is in your home.
Mice use shredded products like paper, cotton, and foam to construct nests. The rodents like to build nests in dark, cluttered attics, in between walls, and in hard-to-reach crawl spaces.
If you smell a foul odor, it can be a sign or mice urine or droppings.
If you hear skittering in your walls or attic, especially at night, it could be signs of a mouse. Mice love dark, secluded areas and will use your walls to travel around at night.
Damage to your property
Internal and external holes in your property could signal a mice invasion. Chewed pipes, shredded insulation, and gnawed furniture and cardboard boxes (especially in areas with food) is a strong sign of a mouse infestation.
