If you hear mice in your walls, you are going to want to take action quickly … before the problem gets worse. Mice multiply fast, so you need to act faster.
First, try to make sure you are really hearing mice in your walls. Mice can make gnawing sounds as they chew on things like insulation, wood, and wires inside your wall. They may make squeaking noises. Or you may hear scratching, scampering or scurrying noises as they move around inside your walls.
If you hear any of these types of noises coming from your walls — typically at night or in the early morning when it’s quiet — you likely have mice in there.
Second, see if the sound stops when you tap on the wall near where the noise is coming from. Mice will get quiet when they detect a threat. This doesn’t mean they’re gone. They’re waiting for you to leave and for it to be safe again.
Third, check for visible signs of mice. Do you see mouse droppings, new holes chewed in corners of your walls, or smudge marks? These are pretty clear indications that you have mice in your home … most likely in your walls.
Even if you don’t see any visible signs of mice, you should seek professional help to get ahead of the problem while it’s still manageable.
