You might think that you’re not likely to encounter a mouse in your property, but there’s a far higher chance of it happening than you might think – a 2017 survey by the National Pest Management Association found that a third of all Americans had experienced an encounter with a rodent in their properties in the year just gone – a truly incredible number, all things considered. Mice in your property is a major concern, as they bring an array of harmful pathogens and bacteria with them wherever they go. Although they might look cute, make no mistake, this could be a substantial threat to the health of anybody present in the property. If you need mice removed from your building, the best port of call is Murray Pest Control. Our mice exterminator professionals have the resources, knowledge, and professional equipment to get the job done quickly.
What Attracts Mice?
If you’ve so far managed to avoid the presence of mice at your property, it’s important that you take all the necessary steps possible to make sure that you continue to enjoy this good fortune. Mice enter properties because they’re looking for shelter, food, or water. That doesn’t mean you’re going to find one in your fridge or in your bed – it means that they’re seeking conditions where food debris and scrap might be abundant. If you can keep your property clean and clear of these conditions, you’ll make it much less likely you’ll have mice at your property.
Eliminating Entry Points
One of the critical maneuvers required to reduce the presence of rodents like mice and rats at your property is to eliminate the potential entry points that they can use to get into the building. While obviously it’s preferential to not have any conditions that they’ll find enticing, that simply isn’t always possible. By closing the gate on them, you’re taking a strong measure to stop them from re-entering your property. Our mice exterminators can assess your property and take measures wherever necessary.
Traps and Bait Stations
If the mice infestation is large enough that reducing the entry point and catching one here and there isn’t going to be enough, then we’ll need to move onto traps and bait stations. We’ll place traps in various places across your property where it’s likely the mice will congregate or move about, and we’ll make sure to use an array of traps – as some traps are more and less effective with different types of mice. If the problem is even bigger, bait stations can be employed – where poisoned food is easily accessible.
Once traps and bait stations have been tried, the final step is to use fumigation. This brand of extermination is generally not our preferred method, but there’s no doubting that it works like a charm. We’ll typically only make use of a fumigation service if there is a wide scale infestation that is too big for any other means or approach. Naturally, you can expect excellent results if you choose our team.
