One of the signs that indicate the mice attack your house is a musky odour in the house. When mice enter the house, they will create a mess and leave drops in the house even outside also. With time they start stinking and give a smell in every corner of your house. Due to this strong smell, you can find the mice attack in your house and go for the prevention method.

2. Greasy Stains

Mice have fat on their fur that leaves visible marks on the wood and floor when they come over it or come in contact. The mice run in the same place again and again. So, their fat can build up an expensive and heavy stain on the place. If you find a discoloured area, it is also a sign of mice in the house.
