Plunkett’s Pest Control has been in this business for a long time and our pest control technicians have heard many tales involving pest encounters including strange places people have found nesting mice. Yes indeed, mouse nests appear in some pretty peculiar places here. And, given that the temperatures in Minneapolis are expected to dip into the teens, it's no wonder mice are seeking refuge in warmer places. Any shelter from the cold is better than nothing, which brings us back to where homeowners in our region can expect to find a mouse nest aside from the usual places like attics, basements and other storage areas. Keep reading to discover where you could encounter a mouse nest. Now that the season of winter sports has arrived, people are going out into the shed or garage to uncover the snowmobile, take out the snow blower and all of the shovels. And it is quite possible that if your garage or shed was not properly sealed, mice could have found their way in and taken up residence in the engine of the snowmobile or other equipment that has been stored away for months. So before you attempt to start the engines, make sure to take a peek. Also, look around the area for other signs of mice including mouse droppings or chew marks. And if you do happen to find that your garage or shed has a mouse infestation then make sure to give us a call at Plunkett’s Pest Control. We are ready to get rid of mice even in the most unexpected of places. If you’ve found mice, a nest or other indications that a mouse problem exists, the Minneapolis pest control team at Plunkett’s recommends that you not disregard the issue. Mice are dangerous pests no matter if they are inside your home or lurking in an outbuilding on your property. Their urine and droppings can spread bacteria and pathogens, which can threaten your health and the damages they can inflict on structures can be quite significant. And a mouse nest is only a sign of an expanding mouse problem as the nests are made to keep the young safe.

Our service area stretches across the Midwest including Minneapolis and Alexandria, MN; Omaha and Lincoln, NE; and throughout the Quad City region.
