You may think that mice are harmless, but nothing could be farther from the truth. They can cause serious damage to a home, and that can be very costly to a homeowner. Mice are a triple threat, risking health problems with their presence in addition to the property damage, and causing some people great discomfort simply due to fear. Whether you see mice as cute or not, they have got to go. And you may think that you can get rid of an infestation of mice on your own, or completely prevent them from coming into your home. But be warned, there is a difference between do-it-yourself and professional pest control.

With mouse DIY control, it's going to seriously cut into your time to ensure that your house is sealed, as you look to block off every possible entry point in your home. If there are mice already in your house, you will want to use glue traps, bait stations, live traps, or snap traps. These types of traps can be effective for trapping mice, but some come with risks of their own, and usually don’t get rid of the entire infestation of mice. You may be left trying to figure out what to do with the live mouse you just captured on glue paper, or a snap trap that caught just the tail and the mouse is running around with the trap attached. This is kind of a nightmare for some people, not to mention the danger to children and pets these products can pose. You could spend a lot of time and money and get poor results, ending up with mice still scurrying around your home, and left feeling like the mice have won the battle.

With professional pest control, you get quick, efficient, and effective results. Pest technicians are experienced in getting rid of entire mouse infestations because they can quickly assess and identify problem areas. They have the knowledge and tools that will guarantee eradication and prevent re-infestation. Also, they will use methods and products that will not pose a health problem for you or your pets. In a nutshell, professional pest control is the way to go if you want to be assured your home will be free of mice. 

There are a lot of DIY projects you can take pride in around your home like redecorating a room, designing a beautiful garden, or putting up a playset for your kids.
