Mice can fit through any crack, crevice, or hole that is one-fourth of an inch or larger, that is about the width of a pencil. They can make their nests in many areas in and around the home, especially in stacked firewood, stones and bricks, and piles of leaves or other debris. We don’t just fill those holes with foam, as mice will eat right through it. Our job is to solve your problem, not just provide a quick-fix.
Did you know that mice can carry and spread over 35 diseases, even spreading illness through their feces and urine? Mouse fur can cause allergic reactions and asthma attacks. Just them crawling on counters can contaminate the area.
If you have had ongoing issues, know that the build-up of their feces in walls can cause respiratory and odor issues. Although this isn’t usually the case for small residential jobs, continued problems left untreated can eventually create bigger problems.
Here are some things you can do if you find mice in your house:
Make sure the food in your pantries are in sealed containers, including dog food.
Wash your hands in you come into contact with their feces, and use a good quality cleaner, such as Clorox or Lysol, to clean your shelves.
Don’t leave food in bedrooms, or on the counter for long periods of time; this is just a warm invitation for them to stay.
