Don't Invite a Mouse in Your House! (How To Deal With Mice)


You might have fun reading a popular bedtime story to your kids: “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.” Even though the family can laugh at the silly story, it is a good reminder to be careful about problems in your home that might invite the mice to move inside. Don’t wait until you see signs of rodents in your home! Instead, you can take action right now to avoid finding a mouse in the house.

How Serious is the Mouse Problem?

One mouse is usually a sign that there are more in the area. So, don’t be fooled into thinking that it is a minor problem. Any time there are signs of rodents in your home, it is essential that you contact a pest control company as soon as possible.

These are some of the common signs of rodent infestation that you might find:         

• Chewed boxes or bags         

• Droppings         

• Gnawing on the furniture or cabinets         

• Unusual pet activity         

• Foul smells         

• Scratching sounds in the walls

When you identify any of these signs in your home, you need to call for a pest control inspection right away. We will determine the severity of the problem. Additionally, our team will offer eco-friendly solutions to get rid of the problem and prevent mice in the future.

The Biggest Problem with Mice

Keep in mind that the rodent population can grow fast. As they reproduce, the infestation will quickly get worse. Delaying the pest control services will likely result in a bigger problem that costs more money to eliminate.

These small animals can crawl through the tiniest holes and spread disease throughout your home. If mice are moving through your living space, then it means that they are depositing droppings and microdroplets of urine that is contaminating your home.

You can buy mouse traps at the local store, but these traps aren’t enough to get rid of the problem. It is essential that you find the areas where they are entering the building. Also, locating the nest can be extremely helpful to reduce problems that you might face in the future.

An effective rodent control program is best implemented by an experienced pest control team: EcoGeek.
