Mouse Control, Trapping & Removal Services

We can rid you of Mouse problems safely and efficiently

Keen senses of smell, hearing, touch, and taste allow mice to adapt to country, suburban, and city environments. They are considered one of the most troublesome household pests because of their feeding and nesting habits. For example, mice nibble on food meant for human consumption and end up contaminating more than they eat. House mice are the most common home-infesting species of rodent.

APPEARANCE

Small in stature, mice are slender with large, sparsely haired ears and long, hairless tails. They tend to be gray or brown in color and have small, protruding eyes. House mice weigh half an ounce and are roughly five to seven inches long, including their three to four inch tails. The pests are agile and use their claws to climb textured surfaces.

DIET

As opportunistic feeders, mice are not picky when it comes to their diets. They enjoy foods high in protein and fat, including cereal grains, nuts, butter, lard, and meat. The pests also like sweets and may pilfer supplies of chocolate. Mice feed 20 or more times in a single evening.

HABITAT

Dark, protected areas make the best habitats for mice. They craft nests out of fibrous materials such as shredded paper, cloth, and insulation that resemble tiny woven balls. In the wild, they like to settle in open fields or under the cover of debris such as woodpiles. Cold weather typically drives the pests inside homes.

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

Residential lawns and manmade buildings offer mice all they need in terms of food and shelter. They get inside via cracks in foundations, siding, floors, and walls. Gaps around windows and doors are often large enough to provide mice entrance, as well. The pests also force their way inside homes from roofs. They reach those heights by way of trees or utility lines and enter buildings through vents or chimneys.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

A single mouse can leave behind 50 to 60 droppings in one night. Their excrement and general presence contributes to the spread of several diseases like salmonellosis, meningitis, ringworm, leptospirosis, and dermatitis. The pests also contaminate whole containers of food and gnaw on wiring, which puts households at risk of electrical fire.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Regular sanitation goes a long way in reducing the possibility of attracting mice. Homeowners should wipe up spills as soon as they happen and vacuum often. Purchasing tightly fitted lids for garbage cans and rodent-proof containers for foodstuffs limits food availability. As house mice can squeeze through openings as tiny as a quarter of an inch in diameter, individuals must plug holes with cooper mesh or steel wool and use caulk around windows and doors. Additionally, homeowners should maintain yards by picking up debris and keeping grass trimmed short.

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

Unfortunately, mice populations are difficult to control because of the pest’s agility and adaptability. Though many traps are commercially available to homeowners, individuals are better off contacting pest control professionals.
