Mice Pest Control
Do you see mice shooting across your kitchen counter, hear them running under the floorboards, chewing up areas of your house, or find their urine or droppings inside?
If so, you need to contact a professional pest control company. Mice are very clever and typically outwit standard trapping devices. Therefore, DIY methods are temporary at best.
At Titan Pest & Wildlife, we offer a variety of interior and exterior pest control solutions in St. Louis & Kansas City. We understand that when it comes to mice, there aren’t any one-size-fits-all solutions. We customize our plans to the specific requirements of each home and ensure that your needs and expectations are met with care and professionalism.
What Attracts Mice To Your Home?
Mice are mammals, so they look for warm places to live, especially when it’s cold outside. They also require food, which is harder to find during the harsh winter months. Therefore, they may find both of these requirements in your house. Mice are opportunistic when it comes to food. If it’s readily available, they are likely to find it.
Signs You Have a Mouse Problem
There are signs that you have mice that you might overlook if you don’t know what to pay attention to. If you see any of these signs, there is likely an infestation brewing somewhere in your house that you need to have addressed immediately.
- Droppings: One of the most telltale signs that you have mice in your house is random droppings. The tiny pellets they leave behind are often seen in spaces where the mice have found a source of food, although they can be found anywhere. Check for them around baseboards, pantry shelves, and wall beams. If you find droppings, make sure to sanitize the area because they can be riddled with bacteria like Hantavirus and salmonella. They also can trigger allergies in some people. Always wear protective gloves when cleaning up the area.
- Nests: Often found in the dark recesses of your home, you might have to look a little harder to find a nest. Mice usually use cotton, cardboard, paper products, and packing material to make their nests. If you see an accumulation of these types of materials, then that could signal a mouse problem.
- Gnaw marks: Mice can do some severe damage by chewing through things like electrical wires and walls. If they get to your wires, it can cause a fire. If you see any gnawing around your home, it is best to look for additional signs and hire a pest control management company to inspect any places you can’t get to.
- Strange noises: If you hear things behind your walls at night, it’s likely a mouse. Mice scurry around behind walls to move between the floors and up to the attic. They typically like the attic space because it is dark, secluded, and warm. An attic is also a place where they can hide without being spotted.
- Just one mouse: If you see just one mouse in your house, you can safely assume that there are more. A female mouse can have up to 35 babies – in just one year – that might be lurking somewhere in your home.
