Wacky Pest Wednesday: Mice
Happy Wednesday to you, Tri-County Pest Control fans! Today, we have our first edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday of 2017 lined up for you, and we are covering a very classic pest: mice. Read on and enjoy!
When people hear the word “mice,” some may think about the friendly cartoon versions, like the mouse from Tom & Jerry, Stewart Little, or even the thing used for computers. Sadly, the common household mouse is unlike all of these, and can actually pose a risk to you and your family as they are known vectors of disease.
With that being said, it is imperative that you keep your house free of mice. An easy way to do this is to do your part in the kitchen when it comes to cleaning up, as mice are easily attracted to left-out food, and can smell it from a great distance. In addition, checking the exterior of your home for cracks and openings is also an effective way to keep them out, so long as you fill the holes afterwards.
Tell-tale signs of a mice infestation are their droppings, holes or gnaw marks, and a distinct odor of something unclean. All of these spell to the presence of mice, and should be taken seriously, preferably with a call to us. Once you reach out to us, we will come up with a comprehensive plan to get the mice out, and keep them out for good.
Enjoy your Wednesday, Tri-County fans!
