We arrived on the scene of this home in Glencoe, Il where the homeowner had just purchased the home and knew that he already had a mouse problem during the home inspection. The inspector noted a little mouse infestation, but what we found would blow your mind! These mice did a number on this house!

The problem when buying a home and looking for signs of a mouse problem come down to this. The homeowner will clean up the mouse poop before you visit the home, so you’ll never really know how bad the mouse problem is if you haven’t been there to witness it first hand. Even home inspectors can be tricked as mice are often unseen, but not to a mouse hunter’s trained eye!

We started in this home by finding the traces of mouse poop, which is nothing that you want to mess with, and following it to the walls and insulation in the basement. This is where it gets nasty! For a quick reference, we’ll show you what normal insulation looks like.

Mice Love Fiberglass Insulation!

Now onto the “good-stuff” – Do mice like fiberglass insulation? YES! They love it! We have the photo evidence to prove it. It’s clear that fiberglass is one of mice preferred construction materials. They nest in it, hallow it out, use it as a bathroom and along the way, destroy it!

Many times, mice will make their way into a home through the utility holes where a builder will not fully seal the openings they create, which leaves the window wide open for mice to enter your home!  These openings led directly into the basement.  You can see that the mice entered this home here and made their home in the insulation.
