What To Do When You Find A Mouse In Your Home
January 24, 2013
If you have spotted a mouse in the house or think you’ve heard noises that sound suspiciously like mice running through the walls and/or ceilings at night, it is time to take care of business. Mice are not only unsettling to see and hear, they are also quite dangerous for you, your family and your home. That’s why the pest control division at Moyer Indoor | Outdoor offer mouse control in Pennsylvania!
Infestations of mice in Pennsylvania are common especially during the colder months of the year when mice are seeking shelter, aka a warm home. And it only takes a hole the size of a dime for a small house mouse to squeeze their way through. Once inside, mice will find food to eat, water to drink, and a place to build a nest as to extend their family. And mice breed all year round, which means that what began as a small and even unnoticed mouse problem could quickly grow into a full-blown infestation.
The movies make mouse control look like a simple task. Just put a piece of cheese on a mousetrap and voila, the mouse is gone. Well, we are here to tell you that it’s not that easy. In fact, mousetraps are not an effective way to get rid of mice. As mentioned before, mice are prolific breeders so the one or two traps you set out are not going to begin to take care of the entire infestation. And what’s worse is that mousetraps don’t always kill the mouse, which means you could be left to finish the job...that’s just messy!
So, what can you do when you have found a live mouse, mouse droppings, chew marks, or a mouse nest in your home? Call our pest control team at Moyer Indoor | Outdoor right away. Mouse control should always be left to the pros to ensure that your home is quickly and safely restored to a mouse free state.
