Domesticated mice can make great pets for the family. However, wild mice are a different story. Wild mice living in your home can cause hundreds of dollars’ of damage in infrastructure and the potential to spread harmful diseases to the members of your household. It is important to get them out as soon as you suspect they are in your home.
The longer mice live in your home, the harder it will be to get them out. Mice are very aware of their surroundings so any new objects, like a trap, will scare them off. DIY traps are difficult to work because you have to bait them and place them properly. And even if your traps do work, you’ll still need to hire a professional to remove the carcasses, as they can still transmit diseases. That’s why you should always enlist the help of professionals like the ones at Critter Control® to help keep your home and family safe.
Since mice can fit in to holes 1/4th of an inch wide, it is hard to tell when they enter your home. A small family of mice can quickly turn into a large infestation if they are left alone to nest for long enough. Your home will have everything they need –food, water, warmth, shelter- so they won’t leave on their own. And the longer they stay, the more time they have to cause damages to your home like:
- Damaging the infrastructure of your home by chewing through walls and wiring, creating fire hazards
- Ripping out insulation for nesting material, driving up heating and cooling costs
- Ruining your food supplies by contaminating it
- Staining walls and ceilings from their urine and feces soaking through insulation
- Tracking germs and bacteria throughout your home, increasing the likelihood of spreading disease
