The presence of mice in your home can cause both emotional distress and safety hazards. Immediate identification and extermination of mice are essential to protecting your family and pets from the various viruses and bacteria they carry. If you have a mouse infestation, we have a solution. My Private Exterminator can eradicate your home of these troublesome creatures, and allow you to continue living a pest-free life.
How and When Mice Infestations Happen
Mice are masters of disguise. It doesn’t take much for them to enter your home unseen and live there for some time. Due to the shape of their bodies, they can fit through holes and cracks drastically smaller than what appears to be likely and infiltrate your dwelling. The following are some of the most common entryways for New York City mice:
- Window and ceiling gaps
- Sewer lines
- Improperly sealed bathtub and sink drains
- Holes around plumbing and oven gas lines
Infestations tend to begin in the fall as temperatures are dropping. One thing to know about mice is that when they find a warm and safe structure to settle in, it’s highly unlikely that they’ll venture back outdoors, especially when there’s inclement weather. Mice are known to reproduce rapidly and can easily grow a population to over 200 in a few months. If only for this reason alone, you should seek the services of professional exterminators.
How Do I Know if I Have Mice in My Home?
People often suspect that they have a mice infestation but are hesitant to seek professional help due to having yet to actually spot a mouse inside their residence. However, besides physically seeing a mouse, there are a few telltale signs of a mouse infestation. These include:
- Mouse droppings
- Unexplained holes or tears in materials
- Holes in furniture
- Scratching noises in the walls
If you notice any of these signs, contact an exterminator as soon as possible. Mice populations increase rapidly, so immediate action is necessary.
Mice are not just a nuisance. In addition to carrying diseases, mice can chew through electrical wires, destroy furniture, and damage materials around the home. Minimize the damage by contacting My Private Exterminator today.
While you may think you can free yourself of mice by merely setting up mouse traps, total extermination is not that simple. Live traps are difficult to set up and require the homeowner to dispose of the dead mice themselves. The only way to guarantee a full removal of mice is to hire an experienced pest control service in your area.
At My Private Exterminator, we begin the extermination process by identifying your pest and determining where it’s nesting. To the untrained eye, this may seem complicated, but we know precisely what to look for in the case of a mouse infestation.
Once we identify the location of your pest, we work with you to provide safe extermination solutions for your home. We can also educate you on how mouse infestations occur and offer tips to prevent future incidents.
