You’ve settled into bed with a great book and are about to dig in when out of the corner of your eye, you see whiskers and beady little eyes. Your heart pounds. You feel a little nauseous and don’t know what to do. That little mouse seems like a kangaroo in your mind, and it’s not a welcome visitor in your RV. Then the thought hits you; there are probably more where that one came from.
Okay, so you’re way past not panicking, but then you remember that humane wildlife control specialists deal with mice removal in Milwaukee all of the time. Phew. That’s the answer! Here are some ways Skedaddle, with a bit of help from you, can get the job done.
Think Like a Mouse
So, you’ve heard of a horse whisperer. Well, we’re not exactly that, but our trained specialists understand the behaviors and biology that cause mice to do what they do. You could say we understand their thought patterns by observing the mice and learning how to remove and deter them from their old stomping grounds.
RVs and campers are especially vulnerable to intrusions because there are so many entry points for the pests. We want to protect rodent families and your family, so we use specialized solutions that are highly effective.
Hide the Munchies
It’s essential to make sure food is never left out on counters or in open containers. Putting open bags of snacks or other foods inside a cabinet does not deter hungry mice. In fact, it’s even more attractive to them because they operate well under the cover of darkness, and you may only know of their presence by finding waste droppings or chew marks.
It is also important to avoid leaving garbage bags around the outside of your RV, even for short periods of time. A mouse has an unbelievably refined sense of smell and will locate a food source in short order.
Seal the Whole Deal
You want to prevent the mouse party before it starts. Once mice nest inside your RV or camper, they breed fast and have sizable litters of pups. An infestation is much more difficult to control, so prevention techniques are the best choice.
Skedaddle Milwaukee uses humane wildlife control techniques to get the issue under control. We seal up the entry points by using exclusion techniques. This is our three-step process:
- Assess and remove: Our specialists assess the property thoroughly and search for activity and damage.
- Clear and clean: We remove the rodents safely and begin the process of cleaning refuse left from infestations. This is very important because mice carry diseases that are harmful to humans.
- Prevent and protect: Our wildlife control technicians seal up entry points to prevent future intrusions.
Check for rodents by looking for areas on your recreational vehicle where they could enter. Waterline holes or openings on the vehicle body are typical access points. It’s important to know that mice can squeeze through pencil-sized spaces. If you locate places where rodents are getting inside, it is best to seek the help of professionals because DIY solutions rarely work.
Prevent the Party
Most of the time in an RV, you can’t wait to get the party started. When your mouse friends arrive, it’s time to douse the campfire and tell them to go home.
If your RV is stored or in one place for a long time, be sure to regularly cut away the grass or weeds. Mice will nest in tall grasses, so if this growth is located right under your rig, it’s the perfect opportunity for them to explore a more comfortable home with handy food sources.
