The house mouse is considered one of the most troublesome and economically important pests in the United States. House mice live and thrive under a variety of conditions in and around homes and farms. House mice consume food meant for humans or pets. They contaminate food-preparation surfaces with their feces, which can contain the bacterium that causes food poisoning (salmonellosis). Their constant gnawing causes damage to structures and property.
House mice are gray or brown rodents with relatively large ears and small eyes. An adult weighs about 1/2 ounce and is about 5 1/2 to 7 1/2 inches long, including the 3 to 4 inch tail. Although house mice usually feed on cereal grains, they will eat many kinds of food. They eat often, nibbling bits of food here and there. Mice have keen senses of taste, hearing, smell and touch. They are excellent climbers and can run up any rough vertical surface. They will run horizontally along wire cables or ropes and can jump up 13 inches from the floor onto a flat surface. They can slip through a crack that a pencil will fit into (slightly larger than 1/4 inch in diameter).
In a single year, a female may have five to 10 litters of usually five or six young each. Young are born 19 to 21 days after mating, and they are mature in six to 10 weeks. The life span of a mouse is about nine to 12 months.
Droppings, fresh gnawing and tracks indicate areas where mice are active. Mouse nests, made from fine shredded paper or other fibrous material, are often found in sheltered locations. House mice have a characteristic musky odor that identifies their presence. Mice are occasionally seen during daylight hours.
Traps and baits are effective however, they can be toxic to humans and pets. Baits are placed in tamper-proof bait stations and secured. There are many different types of traps so find one that best suits your needs. Repellents may also be used to deter rodent populations. Both natural and chemical-based repellents are commercially available and are also effective. The smells of some plants, such as eucalyptus, wormwood and mint, can deter rodents. Repellent dusts produced by manufacturers work in much the same way.
Great service from knowledgeable and professional exterminators. Eric is great and through him we learned how to prevent further problems. Will be having their service on a routine basis to make sure no more problems occur!
Your technician was on time, excellent at explaining what had to be done and then did a thorough job.
The process, from start to finish, was pleasurable. I was given an appointment with a 2 hour window. The technician, Eric, was very professional. He called to inform me of when to expect him to arrive. He quickly diagnosed the problem, and gave me an estimate on the spot to address it. He performed the initial part of the repair that day, and returned, as promised, at a later date to complete the job. I would definitely recommend them.
