Signs of a mouse probelm

How do you know if you have a mouse problem? What kind of signs should you look for? First and fore most would be droppings. If black specks start to show up in areas then it could be mouse droppings. They look like skinny tic tacks with points ends. Another sign is holes in boxes or other food products. The next would be gnawing. The last would be simply sighting them. Sometimes unusual activity from a cat or dog can alert you to a problem as well. If you suspect a mouse problem then buy some product to start the elimination process of call a professional, as mice can get out of hand quite quickly. Happy Hunting!

I had never heard to comparison of mouse feces to tic tacks. Not a bad analogy. I'd just add that the mouse droppings are much smaller than tic tacks, with the pointy ends that you mention. If you see dropping that look exactly like tic tacks, with round endings, you have a rat.
