Mice are tiny creatures from the rodent family who have the ability to enter your home through the tiniest of holes. Mice can fit into openings as small as a dime and with their high reproductive rate, can multiply quickly leaving you with a mouse control problem in the home. Mice can easily go unnoticed in the home but can easily cause health risks as well as damage your home over time. It is best to contact mouse removal experts when you notice signs of mice in the home. This way, the mice can be safely removed and prevented from gaining re-entry.
How to Avoid Mice in the Home
If you are a new homeowner or have never seen mice in your home, you want to learn how to avoid them. To begin, mice like to scavenge. If you leave food on your kitchen counters overnight or do not seal up food packaging properly, mice will have a field day. By leaving out food, you are attracting the creatures you wish to avoid. Be sure to clean up after every meal to avoid such issues. Children should be taught to clean up after themselves if they eat in their bedroom to avoid having mice problems as well.
If you have mice in the home, you may also begin to see droppings around the home. Droppings from mice look like tiny pellets and will be found along baseboards, in cupboards, behind appliances and just about any place else they go. When you see these pellets it is time to contact mouse control.
Assessing the Situation
Once you have contacted wildlife control, a technician will arrive at your home for an assessment. The technician will have the training to be able to determine if you have a mouse problem and where the mice are moving about in your home, as well as gaining entry. At Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control, they use humane methods of relocation, instead of poisoning and trapping methods, as these can be harmful to pets and humans. You also need a long-term solution for your mouse issue. With our methods, mice are not left behind. If mice are left to die in your home due to poison or trap methods, it can lead to problems as the mice will begin to deteriorate in the walls or attic of your home.
A technician will assess your home and create a plan of action for the removal of mice and the cleanup of any mess that was left behind. Contaminated materials will need to be removed to ensure there are no serious health risks in the home. Mice can be quite dirty and leave droppings behind that can carry disease and other issues such as hantavirus, rat bite fever, tapeworm, and ringworm. Cleaning up ensures you are not subject to such health issues.
