Mice are small rodents that have large ears for their size. They also have small, black eyes and have bodies that are typically gray or light brown in color. These small pests are 4 to 7 inches long, 2 to 4 inches high, and have a weight of less than an ounce.
Mice are occasionally seen during the day although they tend to shy away from bright lights. They are most active at night and can thrive in a variety of locations. This includes homes, commercial buildings, agricultural land, and open fields.
Since mice are so small, they can gain entry into homes and buildings much easier than rats. As a result, an infestation of mice is over 15 times more likely than an infestation of rats. Some of the first signs of active mice around your property include mouse droppings, tracks, and marks from gnawing. They also create nests by shredding paper and placing them in a discrete location.
Mice have no specific food that they eat and have no problem eating food that is meant for you, your pets, or your livestock. Surprisingly, these small unwanted pests can do a considerable amount of damage to your property and the buildings that reside on it. They can cause illness by transmitting pathogens that cause diseases such as food poisoning.
Mouse Control Services Offered
Since mice are capable of fitting through extremely small openings in your foundation, walls, and floors, they can be very difficult to get rid of. These unwanted pests pose a threat to you and your family due to the diseases they can carry and the destruction they can cause.
The most efficient rodent control and mouse extermination methods are those administered by a specialist. Specialists understand rodent behaviors and know exactly how to get rid of mice. These methods may include:
- Trapping — Trapping is good for a small infestation of mice. These devices may include snap traps, and glue boards. Snap traps are time-consuming but effective while glue boards allow the mice to stick to the paper so they can no longer travel.
- Baits — Anticoagulant & other rodenticides are combined with an attractive food to aid in pest control. They slowly administer toxins that will remove blood clotting, damage capillaries, and cause internal bleeding that is fatal. The poison is administered in low levels so the mice do not avoid the bait.
After your mouse infestation is under control, be sure to eliminate open food sources and discrete shelter areas to reduce the risk of attracting any other unwanted pests.
