The house mouse (Mus musculus) is one of the most troublesome and economically important rodents in the United States. House mice thrive even in harsh conditions as long as they can find food, warmth and shelter. House mice consume and contaminate food meant for humans, pets, livestock, or other animals. In addition, they can cause considerable damage to structures and property through their gnawing actions, and they can transmit pathogens that cause diseases such as salmonellosis, which is a form of food poisoning. Being around their fur, urine and droppings can cause various illnesses, including allergies, asthma and infestations of ticks or fleas. Did you know the number one reason of unexpected house fires in the U.S. is attributed to the gnawing of wires by rodents in structures?
-A mouse can slip through a crack that a pencil will fit into (slightly larger than ¼ inch).

-A female house mouse can give birth up to a dozen babies every three weeks. That’s 150 babies a year!

So, do you need any further convincing that you should get rid of your house mouse infestation? We are rodent experts and can eliminate any rodent infestations your home may be experiencing. If you see any telltale signs of rodent infestation such as nests, droppings, fresh gnaw marks, or tracks, these all indicate areas where mice are active. Since house mice are so small, they can gain entry into homes and other buildings much more easily than rats. As a result, house mouse infestations are probably 10 to 20 times more common than rat infestations. Effective control involves sanitation, exclusion, and population reduction. A key to successful long-term mouse control is the limitation of shelter, food and water wherever possible. Trapping works well when mice are not numerous or it can be used as a follow-up measure after a baiting program, but exclusion keeps them out in the first place. So, let us help you identify weak points where mice may be gaining access to your home, so that they do not become pests in the first place.
