Mouse control

Mice can be found everywhere, so mouse control is an important aspect of pest management that you should always address.

These critters are some of the most versatile pests that you can encounter. They're great climbers and can squeeze into small spaces. In colder months, they seek shelter indoors. As such, exercising best practices in your daily activities can help keep rodents out of your home.

Recognize the risks

Though mice are certainly a nuisance, the real dangers go beyond dealing with a pantry full of chewed-through boxes and food items. They can gnaw through wires in the home, causing anything from inconvenience to fire hazards. They're carriers of many bacteria and viruses, including salmonella and hantaviruses. Furthermore, these unwelcome guests may be hosts to various parasites, including ticks, which carry Lyme disease and many other forms of bacteria.

Maintain the interior

Mice aren't just looking for a warm place to call home - they also need food. As such, store dry food in airtight containers that mice can't chew through. Don't leave any food on the countertops, which mice can easily get to. Avoid leaving glasses of water out overnight, which can help a mouse survive. If you have a pet, clean the bowls every night to ensure that your pet is the only animal using the vessels. Clean the areas under the stove, refrigerator and dishwasher as well, since food can often slip under these cracks, which mice will be attracted to.

Address the exterior

Heighten your home's defense against mice by tending to the exterior. Trim overgrown vegetation and shrubbery to dissuade the critters from settling in. Your chimney may be high up, but it doesn't pose a problem for mice, so cap it when not in use. Any leaks or cracks in the roof should be repaired immediately. Check your windows and vents for proper seals to ensure that mice won't be able to squeeze in. If you have a perimeter wall, make sure that there aren't any cracks that mice can crawl through. Get rid of any debris, such as lumber or dry leaves, as these can become nesting areas for mice.

Mouse control is a multifaceted precaution that can't be overlooked due to the many dangers that mice pose. If you suspect that your home has mice or are concerned about whether it's properly protected, contact pest management specialists such as Abell Pest Control, who can check your property and give you advice on optimal pest control.
