Mice can be a real issue year-round, but especially in the winter time. As temperatures drop, mice look for any way they can access the warmth of your home. Mice can exploit the tiniest of cracks and openings. The average mouse can squeeze through holes about the size of a dime, but will often gnaw the entrance until it is much wider. Mice can gnaw their way through wood, siding, and even brick.
Access Throughout the House
Once a mouse has gotten into your home, they will usually be able to access the rest of it. Mice can squeeze through small wall gaps near pipes or vent systems in the walls to go from the attic to the basement. Mice will usually move from one central location to other places in the home through the walls. They dig their way through insulation, which can create gaps that cause drafts. Mice will usually figure out away to access the kitchen or pantry, so that a steady supply of food is within reach.
Do not attempt to deal with a mouse problem yourself. You should hire a humane pest removal company to remove the mice. Excluding mice from a home is the best way to ensure that your pest problem does not return. Many fatal methods of removing pest animals like mice do not clear out the problem fully. Exclusionary methods focus on getting rid of all of the mice, and their droppings; and then closing up any entrances they have made. Our team will recommend the safest and most efficient way to get rid of mice in your home. Proper repair of any openings in the house is key to maintaining a pest-free home.
