How Are These Mice Getting Into My Home?

Mice can be one of the most frustrating pests that invade our homes. You hear them scratching in the walls, you hear them scampering across your attic, you know that they are there! You may find visible signs that they have invaded your home, such as their droppings that look like black grains of rice, typically in and around kitchens, cabinets, and food. They can also rip into packaging and leave gnaw marks on wood and other items.

However cute you may think they are, mice are dirty pests that carry disease and spread parasites. Their urine and feces can contaminate foods and surfaces, spread harmful diseases like Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, and cause extensive damage to your home from their constant gnawing tendencies which include the risk of electrical fire from chewed wires. Just one or two mice can cause significant problems within the four walls of your home, and on top of that, they have the bad habit of breeding rapidly, which will compound the problem exponentially.

The most frustrating part of a mouse infestation is not being able to find and seal off all the entry points they are using to get into your home. It is very important that you call a professional right away when you see or hear signs of mice inside your home. They can find all points of entry and take the appropriate steps to rid your home of every single mouse dwelling within. Remember, if you put off getting help for a mouse problem you are potentially putting your family and home at risk for illnesses and damages.
