Mice can get into your food and can contaminate it with their droppings, or chew on electrical cords leaving wires exposed.
One of the most common pests that enter a home uninvited is the house mouse called the Mus musculus. These mice can cause quite a disturbance in the home and can be quite a nuisance. If there is anyone in the house that is afraid of mice, it can turn into a catastrophe! In these cases you’ll need to call a pest management company to get rid of these animals quickly, not only for your peace of mind but for your family’s safety as well.
Mice can get into your food and can contaminate it with their droppings. This can be the cause of food poisoning and mice can also spread nasty diseases. At the first sign of a mouse in the house, it’s time to act.
Mice can also chew on electrical cords and leave wires openly exposed. This is a serious situation if you have young children in the home or even adults that don’t notice that the wires have been gnawed on. If you have noticed any rodents in your home, it’s a good idea to check all of the wires leading to electrical outlets to make sure that they haven’t been damaged at all.
Make sure that your food is stored properly at the first sign of mouse droppings. Keeping things in hard plastic containers will stop mice from eating any foodstuff. Make sure that there are no crumbs left behind on your tabletop or counters. Basically, you don’t want to give a mouse any reason to enter your kitchen.
There aren’t too many mice that enter homes through the front or back door. They usually find an entrance point that can be difficult to find. Sometimes there is an extremely small entranceway into the home and you’ll need the help of a pest management company in order to find it. These businesses know the common points of entry for house mice and can give you guidance and help tracking it down. Openings for vents, air conditioner outlets, and pipes may need to have some type of netting or mesh added to them to help keep the mice out.
When dealing with house mice it’s always best to call in a professional company to make sure that both the mice that are in the house are dealt with as well as the entrance points. It really doesn’t make sense to get rid of a couple of mice that are running around your home when two more can enter the next night. A permanent solution needs to be found so that you don’t have this pest problem to deal with any longer.
