Mice are creatures from the rodent family who enter the home via small holes and cracks, quickly multiplying due to their high rate of reproduction. You can easily see your home overrun with mice, as a small problem can go unnoticed for some time. Mice can do damage to your home, from chewing up electrical wires to leaving urine and feces everywhere they travel. By working with rodent control services, you will see the mice removed from your home and preventative measures used to keep such a situation from happening again.
The first step is to recognize that you have a mouse problem. Of course if you physically see mice in the home, then you know that there is a problem. If not, then you might have noticed food packages being chewed open, small mice droppings in the kitchen or floors of the home, etc. These small signs will help you determine if there is a mouse or several mice in your home.
Have a wildlife control technician visit your home for a full assessment. Technicians in this field of study are able to identify mice entry points and trails. Once identified, a plan of action can be created to ensure the mice are removed from the home. Poison and trapping methods that some companies use can be harmful to pets and humans as well as the mice.
Clearing Out and Maintenance
Once the plan of action has been put to work, you will see the mice begin to be captured and removed from your home. Since the entry points have been discovered, preventative maintenance can now occur. Blocking off such entry points will keep mice from entering your home in the future. Mice have the ability to squeeze into openings the size of a dime so even the smallest of cracks or crevices need to be filled in order to keep the creatures from finding their way into your home.
The area where the mice were living as well as traveling will need to be cleaned and cleared. Mice create nests and leave behind droppings that can be a health risk. Mice are dirty creatures that can carry the hantavirus, mites, ringworm, rat bite fever, and other diseases which are transferred via the feces and urine left behind. Cleanup is a must to ensure that your home is not susceptible to such diseases.
