SAME DAY SERVICE | FREE INSPECTIONS

Happy October! Here come the creepy crawlies!

House mice are said to be the most common mammal in the U.S., so it’s no surprise that many homeowners report dealing with infestations at one time or another. Because mice are so common, you may think you already know all there is to know about this household pest, but think again!

Look closely at your foundation for cracks or gaps where a mouse could squeeze through. Wherever possible, climb underneath porches and look behind stairs, bushes, or other objects. There may be holes that have been made larger over the years by water damage and chewing pests.

Contrary to popular belief, mice do not leave on their own, and in order to successfully rid your home of them, you will need to contact a professional pest control company. Dealing with a mice infestation inside of your home is something that no homeowner wants to deal with.

Clean-up tip:

Do not sweep or vacuum up mouse or rat urine, droppings, or nests. This will cause virus particles to go into the air, where they can be breathed in.

A good way to tell if mice no long roam in your home is if the foul, Ammonia-like smell diminishes. You can’t smell this odor if mice no longer relive themselves in your home.

 
 
Yes. Animal removal experts say a sewer rat can indeed come up through your toilet. Rats travel far and wide in narrow spaces such as sewers, pipes and vent stacks in search of food and shelter, and every so often this journey leads them into a toilet bowl.
Can Mice Climb on Beds? Mice are excellent climbers that can crawl up just about any surface. They can also leap one foot into the air, which is why climbing or jumping into the bed is an easy task for them. … The sheets and blankets can also be draped on the floor, providing a ladder for mice to reach.
The truth is that if there is a chance to experience a mouse bite, while you are snoozing, it’s a minimal one. The critters are scared of humans and the only genuine reason to find one in your bed is if there’s any food source for them, like crumbs, for example.
Will mice go away by themselves? No. If you don’t get rid of their food source and rodent-proof your property, they’ll keep coming back. Mice are social creatures with large families.
Mouse nests look like a ball with a hole in the middle where they can enter and exit. Nests can also be found outdoors and underground where they are able to take shelter from prey and keep warm.
Stowers explained that odor molecules (also called pheromones) may indicate the presence of danger in mice. For example, if mice smell cat urine, mice are likely to leave the area to avoid the predator. … In this case, it’s the smell of cats that sparks fear in mice.
