Our question today is, is one mouse the sign of an infestation? Even if you’ve spotted just one mouse, then yes, you need to consider you’re dealing with an infestation. Mice don’t travel very far from their nest.

So if you’ve seen one mouse, you need to perform a thorough inspection to determine where the nest is so you can get rid of it fast. Check the kitchen, garage and basement for mouse droppings, grease smears along the wall, and foul smelling odours. If you leave out any open food sources, like pet food, then check the packaging for openings or chew marks. Once you’ve found the source of your infestation, you’ll want to treat it as soon as possible with professional grade products like snap traps, glue boards or rodenticide bait blocks.
