Where Do Mice Hide During an Infestation?

Where Do Mice Hide During an Infestation?

Mice are common pests that can be found in many homes, especially during the colder months of the year when they are looking for warm and cozy places to build their nests. While mice are small and can squeeze into tight spaces, there are some common areas where they tend to build their nests in the home. Here are some of the most common places where you might find mice nests in your home:

  1. Attics and crawl spaces: Mice are excellent climbers and they often make their way into attics and crawl spaces where they can build their nests in the insulation. These areas are warm, dark, and quiet, making them ideal for mice to raise their young.
  2. Behind appliances: Mice are also known to build their nests behind appliances, such as refrigerators, washing machines, and dryers. These areas are often warm and provide mice with easy access to food and water.
  3. In closets and storage boxes: Mice often build their nests in closets and storage boxes where they can find materials such as clothing, paper, and other materials to use in their nests.
  4. In walls and wall voids: Mice are able to chew through walls and other building materials, which allows them to create tunnels and nest in the voids between walls.
  5. In basements and garages: Basements and garages are often damp and dark, which makes them attractive to mice. These areas also provide mice with easy access to the rest of the house through gaps and holes in the walls.

If you suspect that you have mice in your home, it is important to take action to get rid of them as soon as possible. Mice can cause damage to your home, contaminate food, and spread diseases, so they can pose a serious thread.
