Often the first signs of a mouse infestation are the tiny rice-shaped droppings you find in your drawers, pantry and in dark corners. The musky smell of their urine is another one, along with gnawed holes and some phantom pitter patter in the night.
They may make for cute pets, but wild mice setting up shop in your home can contaminate your food and chew up your electrical wires.

Mice cause property damage that can result in a severe economic burden to homeowners. They are perpetual chewers and will chew at wires, which can lead to power outages and fires.They also chew holes in your clothes and household linens. Their burrowing behavior can also be a nuisance. Add to these the added costs of blocking off entry points, which could entail significant work on building infrastructure.
Mice are more inclined to use your plumbing as a way into your house than as a toilet. While they may urinate and leave excrement in there, they will also do this in your attic, behind your walls, under your floors, in your basement, in the shed and whatever other shelter they can find. They will defecate and urinate and contaminate the insulation.
Mouse Trapping and Removal
Some mouse populations are easier to control than others on a long-term basis. The most important thing is to focus on populations rather than on individual mice. An integrated strategy should include regular and thorough inspections, improved sanitation and general mouse-proofing of structures. Combining this approach with lethal control methods like rodenticides, snap traps and glue boards is the best way to deal with your mouse problem.
Sealing Entry Points
Getting rid of mice for good, or at least on a long-term basis, requires taking a look at why there was an infestation in the first place. Apart from sanitation issues, finding routes of entry such as cracks in the foundation, loose screens and holes in pipes, is an important part of the exclusion process.
Our trained AAAC Wildlife Removal specialists can find these entry points and make necessary modifications to your building, adding sealants, mesh and other types of barriers against rats.
