Is it a mole or a mouse?

Question: I have a mole inside my slab house (no basement). No websites give any information on getting rid of one in the house. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

ANSWER: I think it is probably a house or field mouse, since moles are yard pests. The best control for mice indoors is to use snap traps.

Rodent control can be difficult and it is often best to leave it to a professional. Call your local Orkin Branch Office and a highly trained Orkin Pest Specialist will come to your home and assess the issue with the mice. Your Orkin Pest Specialist will develop a customized, scientifically proven pest control program to take care of the issue with mice and any other pests that may be found during the inspection.
