You can find a common house mouse nest in any of the areas where they like to live. Identifying the nest is easy; these mice use scraps of things or chew off pieces of objects to use as building material. Common household items can be found in the makings of the nest. Here is a list of some things you might notice missing or chewed on:
- Dry goods, like rice, seeds, or grains. Any food can be used.
- Fabrics from furniture, towels or even clothing.
- Packing materials
All of these items can be found in the nest, they also use outdoor items. Twigs, pine needles, grass, and leaves can also be used to form the nest. It will depend on what the common house mouse has access to.
If you find a common house mouse nest within your home call your local pest control company to come out and remove the nest. One problem the nest can cause is the spread of the diseases the common house mouse carries. If the mouse has been living there, there will be fecal matter which needs to also be removed by a professional. Also by removing the nest, it will lower the homeowner’s chance of having the common house mouse moving back in.
