Mice are nocturnal creatures and are rarely seen by humans. This can make the job of identification quite difficult. They often forage for food at night or during dusk, when most employees and customers have left for the day. If people do catch a sight of a mouse invader, it may only be for a split second and not long enough to identify the species.
Luckily, Rentokil’s rodent experts have the expertise and know-how to help with mouse identification, which will help to establish the right control method for your business.
