Mice Pest Control
Mice are extremely destructive pests. Unfortunately, mice are common in homes and businesses—so, if you’ve got an infestation in your space, you’re not alone!
Not only are mice a nuisance, they can also pose significant health threats through diseases they carry as well as property threats from gnawing and nesting.
Why Do I Have So Many Mice?
Mice reproduce quickly. One of the worst things about pest mice being in your home is that they multiply in the blink of an eye.
Rapidly breeding mice adapt quickly to their conditions, which can make them difficult to control and get rid of. Mice often multiply before you even realize you have a rodent problem to begin with. With a rodent infestation, the key is to act fast!
How Do Mice Get in My House?
Controlling mice in and outside of your property can be difficult because they can enter a home or building through a hole the size of a dime.
If you have mice in your home, it’s likely they were looking for food, water, and shelter ideal for nesting and snuck in through a small opening. A detailed inspection from Plunkett’s is a great place to start for getting and keeping rodents out.
Signs of a Mouse Infestation
Here are a few tell-tale signs that you need pest control for mice:
- Small chew/gnaw holes
- Greasy/oily marks along walls (residue from mice fur will transfer to the areas they travel near, such as baseboards)
- Urine odor
- Nesting materials
- Scuffing and scampering noises
- Odd pet behavior
How Do I Prevent a Mouse Infestation?
Your first line of defense against a rodent infestation involves the outside of your home or business. You will need to inspect the exterior of your property for any holes, gaps, or cracks bigger than ¼”. Crucial spots to check, include:
- Around the foundation—especially where it meets the siding
- Around the basement windows and around doors and door frames
- Where pipes, electrical, and phone lines enter the building
Repair any gaps and holes you find where mice could sneak inside.
Check the Interior:
The second part of preventing a mouse infestation involves the interior of your structure. Frequent cleaning will remove crumbs, spills, and other mouse attractions. This also enables you to see the signs of a mouse infestation before the problem, such as mice breeding, gets out of hand.
These measures will be the most cost-effective and long-term mice control solutions.
