The Risks of Mice In Your Home
Mice can enter homes through the tiniest of holes. Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a dime. Once inside, these pests have everything they need to start breeding inside your home. They have now made YOUR home, THEIR home.
Mice will use nearly any means possible to gain access to food, water and shelter. They are good climbers with excellent balance and can use wires, pipes, and even gutters to find entry points into homes. Mice are also very good swimmers making them right at home along waterways and in sewers.
When mice frequent an area, they often leave behind clues such as droppings, urine, and gnawing damage. Other, more subtle signs can include tracks or runways, rub marks, burrows, and you can even hear scratching or moving within your walls. These clues can be used to identify where mice are feeding or nesting. Nests are commonly found in sheltered locations, and usually consist of shredded materials such as paper, cardboard and insulation.
Mice are dangerous pests capable of spreading over 35 of diseases. When foraging mice contaminate surfaces with their droppings and urine that can spread bacteria, contaminate foods, and cause allergic reactions.
Overwintering rodents can also cause extensive damage to your home. Gnawing damage to electrical wires can pose a dangerous fire hazard, while chewed water lines can cause leaks or even flooding. Mice also cause considerable damage to insulation by tearing it apart for nesting materials or due to contamination from feces.
Check your home for signs of rodent droppings, gnaw marks, scurrying noises behind walls, and an accumulation of shredded paper hidden in dark corners, indicating a nesting site. Addressing these conditions at the first signs of rodent activity is important to the success of any rodent management program.
If you do find signs of rodent activity, the best approach is to call Structural Pest to make sure these invasive pests are quickly removed to ensure the safety and health of your family.
