When Everything's Scurrying You Know It's A Mouse: How To Get That Pest Out Of Your House

Evan Patterson

Having a mouse problem is more than just seeing little nibbles in your pantry items or finding gross little droppings behind your microwave, stove, and fridge, it's an indicator that you may have serious diseases lurking in your home as well. Mice carry mites and other parasites and can even be carrying the hantavirus, which is a very serious illness that can cause fever, muscle aches, nausea, headaches, and in severe cases, can even lead to death with a mortality rate around 38% of victims affected. The virus is often contracted by breathing in fecal matter debris from dried mouse droppings found in the home and garage. When you have mice, you want to get rid of them immediately. Here are some tips on how.

Hire an exterminator

Hiring a professional rodent pest control expert is the best way to get rid of your mouse problem. These experts use traps, poisons, and adhesive barriers to get rid of mice quickly. Beyond killing and removing existing mice, they inspect your home and property for likely areas of entry and any signs of nests so they can be destroyed to keep your mouse problem under control. Even after the initial visit, you will want to have a followup examination of your home made to ensure that your rodent issue is taken care of.

Take away food sources

Mice usually enter homes and garages because of tasty food sources. Pet foods, dried items in the pantry, and crumbs and other kitchen morsels can keep mice coming back for more. What's worse is that mice find their way in and out of your home via leaving behind small traces of urine which can be found using a special blacklight by your pest control expert. They use this light to track where mice may have gotten into your home so they can place traps and steel wool barriers in common mouse dwellings.

Use preventative measures

Live or snap traps are a poison-free way to catch mice that may still be on your property. Keep these traps in your garage, under your sinks, and behind appliances so they are out of sight but still very likely to catch a rodent or 2. Your pest control expert can leave traps for you to use and return to expose of them when they have successfully trapped a rodent so you don't have to deal with the aftermath on your own. Continue leaving traps out away from pets and children even after you believe your mice are gone, and have your exterminator visit your home in the fall to again mouse-proof your home so you don't get a recurrence of the situation year after year.

About Me
Exploring The Benefits Of Hiring Pest Control Experts

Hi there, my name is Taylor Stone. Ant problems do not just go away on their own. I thought that keeping my home clean would eliminate ants from the premises after they stopped finding food lying about. Boy was I wrong about that. The ants kept streaming inside the home in tiny lines that caused me great distress. The ants went into my pantry and even tried to go into the fridge. I eventually had to call in pest control experts to remove these critters from the vicinity. I was astonished at how quickly and efficiently the pest control experts worked to resolve this trying problem. They got more done in a few weeks than I could accomplish in a year's time. I hope to share the benefits of hiring a pest control expert immediately upon noticing a problem. Thank you.
