Mice dropping are often black in colour rod shaped and about 3-6mm in length, fresh dropping tend to be moist and soft. Each individual mouse can produce up to 80 droppings per day, the most common places to locate the droppings are under the kitchen sink around the boiler or even in cupboards. Other signs may be smear marks that will be dark grey in colour and come from the oils contained in the fur of the mouse.
Mice can be found anywhere but do seem to prefer areas like loft spaces or voids under the floor or in the walls.
Controlling mice is most effective when using specifically designed poisons provided by The Exterminator Pest Control which once eaten will cause the mice to die quickly. It’s always possible that a mouse may die in a location which is inaccessible for example in or behind the wall which is built into the house or perhaps under the floorboards and this may result in a smell.
