House mice usually invade your home during the fall months because as fall approaches their food supply of plants and seeds are gone. Mice venture inside in search of food, building nesting areas nearby in debris like piles of leaves or stacked firewood. Keeping this debris from accumulating around your home and using thick weather striping on the bottoms of doors and garage doors will reduce the risk of infestation.
They consume food meant for humans or pets and contaminate food-preparation surfaces with their feces, which can contain the bacterium that causes food poisoning (salmonellosis). Their constant gnawing causes damage to structures and property.
RECOGNIZING MOUSE INFESTATIONS
Droppings, fresh gnawing and tracks indicate areas where mice are active. Mice nests, made from fine shredded paper or other fibrous material, are often found in sheltered locations. House mice have a characteristic musky odor that identifies their presence, and being nocturnal creatures are only occasionally seen during daylight hours. Saving debris and recording where you see activity are helpful to our licensed pest control experts when being called in for Mice & Rodent Removal.
