    Got something oily on my floor mat and I don't think I've had on my shoes lately to produce this. Is there anything specific I should look into? Thanks

    Funny enough I had a mouse in the truck very recently. With all this additional wfh time I was able to leave the doors open for a couple days. It seems to be gone. It's been hot enough to bake it recently and there is no smell. So I think it's gone.

    Right. I brought the truck into the garage to clean the interior when I noticed it.

    In all seriousness, I’d look up above for any drips ready to drop.

    I think it was a Tacoma, but I have heard of the grease in the tilt / tele steering column dripping in really hot temps. Looks way too far left for that though.

    I doubt its mouse pee, that's a large spot comparitively, mice can go years without water source, they get most of their moisture intake from food they eat

    Until I got them under control, I had mice peeing on my door sills all the time. They pee a lot. Maybe you're thinking of deer.

    Mice are nocturnal creatures, preferring to keep hidden during the day and search for food from dusk till dawn. Here are some common signs of mouse activity you can look for in your property.


    • Droppings - 50/ 80 droppings a night, small and dark (approx. 3 - 8 mm in length), scattered randomly, check inside or on cupboard tops or along skirting.
    • Grease marks - Caused by their bodies brushing against walls, floors and skirting on regular routes, dark smears around holes or around corners.
    • Urine pillars - In established or heavy infestations, body grease, combined with dirt and urine, builds up into small mounds, up to 4cm high and 1cm wide.
    • Scratching noises - Often at night when mice are most active. Listen for noises between partition walls, under floorboards, in false ceilings, basements and lofts.
    • Nests - Using easy to shred materials, mice then line the nest with other soft materials. Check lofts, suspended ceilings, cavity walls, under floorboards and behind fridges, under stoves and in airing cupboards.
    • Tracks footprints - Dusty environments such as unused lofts and basements can show up rodent tracks and tail marks. To check for activity, sprinkle flour, talcum powder or china clay and check the next day for fresh tracks.
    • Live or dead mice - Spotting a mouse during the daytime can be an indication of a heavy infestation.
    • Strong smell - Mice urinate frequently and their wee has a strong ammonia-like smell. The stronger the smell the closer you are to mice activity. This smell can linger for a long time (even after an infestation has been removed).

    When mice crawl on your face while you're sleeping is another good sign of infestation.....

    Nothing above that looks like an obvious source. The steering column is more over the brake pedal.
