Mouse Control

Protect your Home and Family from Mice

Having mice in your home is more than an inconvenience - they are unsanitary and their droppings have been implicated as potential asthma triggers in children.

They can multiply quickly and will do significant damage to your home and furniture through their gnawing activities. They will also contaminate food and other materials through the droppings they leave behind.

Not only are mice destructive they have even been implicated in causing house fires after chewing through electrical cables.

Signs of Mice

The typical signs of a mouse problem are:

  • Scratching noises in the walls or ceilings as mice scurry around.
  • Droppings – mice leave small, dark droppings particularly along walls, in cupboards or under sinks.
  • Distinctive smell – mice leave an ammonia-like smell that will be particularly strong in more enclosed areas such as under cupboards.
  • Damage – mice have teeth that grow continuously and will gnaw on wood, plastic, cables and other hard materials to keep their teeth shorter.
  • Nests – mice build nests with shredded material such as newspaper and fabrics. These will tend to be in hidden places such as behind fridges. Nests will often contain young mice.

How to Mouse Proof Your Home

The first line of defense against mice is to seal your home. Any holes that are larger than ¼ inch will allow mice to gain access because their jaws can fit into tight spaces like these and quickly chew larger openings that allow them to enter a building. Therefore it is important to seal all openings with steel wool or caulk.

 

Be careful not to attract mice with food – where possible, store food in plastic or metal containers. Regularly clean under stoves, refrigerators and cupboards.
