Mice are one of America’s most well-known pests, but that doesn’t make them any less of a danger to you, your family, and your property. Left unchecked, you’ll soon find that they’ve contaminated your pantry, ruined the structural integrity of your home, and even spread disease amongst your loved ones. Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to prevent mice in home areas and tackle mouse control all in one.
Noticing the Average House Mouse
The first step to dealing with mice is to understand when you have a problem. If you’re noticing small teeth-marks on your furniture, it’s not your toddler- it’s likely to be mice. There are dozens of small telltale signs of an infestation, and if you’re busy, you might not notice them until it’s too late. Make sure to keep an eye out for small tracks across your floors, mouse droppings or debris, or even a nesting area- a small alcove of shredded fabric and newspaper where mice choose to live. These nests get larger the more mice living in them, and can be inside the walls- you might not notice it until it’s too late. If you hear strange noises in the walls or see anything that might indicate a mouse, you have a problem, and taking care of it immediately is key.
Preventing Mice In Your Home
There are a lot of different ways you can ensure that your home is mouse-free, and they all begin with sealing things up. Seal up and weatherproof your doors, windows, vents- even cracks in your siding or foundation- to make sure that you don’t have any unwanted autumn visitors. Seal up any food you’ve left lying about, and make sure that your cabinets shut tightly. Trim up your bushes and trees so that they don’t make direct contact with your house, and make sure you don’t have any standing puddles of water or leaks from the garden hose in your lawn. Pick up any rotten fruit or broken trash bags that might spill out, because, in addition to mice, they also attract raccoons and rats.
If you already have an infestation, though, it might not be the right time to start worrying about the trash bags. To get rid of mice fast, call the professionals at ScorpionTech.
