Mice are actually very vocal and communicative animals. While we hear their sounds as squeaks, they have a variety of squeaks and pitches that determine what they’re trying to communicate. Mind you, you’re more likely to notice a mouse by its scratching and scurrying sounds as it scampers inside walls, along baseboards, or in the attic.
Like most rodents, mice have four toes on their front feet with a central pad, and five on their back, and their tiny tracks (half an inch or less) are accompanied by a tail trail.
Mice poop looks like small brown rice-sized pieces (about an eighth of an inch), usually scattered about rather than in piles. The more scattered, the more mouse problem you have.
