Spring Is Here Which Means It’s Mice Breeding Season

A mice infestation is no laughing matter. It is a serious problem that can have dangerous consequences. Mice are naturally adaptable and can find ways into your home’s wall, attic and basement. This is especially important during winter, as this is when they seek shelter from cold outdoor temperatures. If you see mice or their droppings in your home, the first thing you need to assume is that there are more than one. If your pet is intently staring at the wall or ceiling for no reason, chances are they have registered the smell or sound of rodents crawling through there. Getting rid of mice from a wall is a difficult job. That is why you’d best call for professional help.

Here Is Why You Need To Get Rid Of Mice From Your Walls Right Away

 

Not doing your absolute best when trying to get rid of rodents in your home can be very dangerous. Mice can do damage and cause danger in a number of different ways, most notably:

Always Seek Professional Help When It Comes To Removing Mice From Walls

 

It is important to be proactive if you happen to have mice in your home during winter and take care of the problem. Unfortunately, if it’s not addressed the situation is going to get much worse in the spring. This is because the busiest reproductive cycle of mice occurs during the spring and fall, even though they do breed all year long. Approximately 3 weeks after fertilization, litters of 5 to 6 babies are born and reach maturity in as early as 6 weeks. With very high reproductive rates, you can see why acting in a timely manner is crucial. When we say, “take action” it doesn’t mean a trip tp the hardware store for a trap or two to  get rid of mice from walls or other areas of your home on your own. It means calling in professionals like Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control.
