How To Keep Mice Out Of Your Beaumont Home

Mice often enter homes and begin quickly reproducing, which makes early detection and treatment very important. Part of the problem with mice is that their size allows them to quickly enter a structure through tiny openings. They also tend to be most active at night and often will go undetected for weeks or months. The house mouse (Mus musculus) is among the most common types that will enter homes. The house mouse has a thin body that usually ranges from two to three inches long, with a tail of close to the same length, and weighs less than one ounce. They typically appear in shades of gray or brown and have a pointed snout.

The Types Of Problems That Mice Can Create 

Mice are known to spread leptospirosis, tularemia, salmonellosis, and a host of other harmful diseases. As they move throughout the interior areas of a home, they often carry parasites, and their urine, feces, and fur may irritate allergies, generate odors, and damage materials. As with most rodents, mice have overgrown front teeth that cause them to constantly gnaw on things such as wiring, which could be a potential fire hazard. 

Tips For Preventing Mice 

Here are a few suggestions to help you keep mice out of your Beaumont home:

  • Keep trees, shrubs, and other vegetation trimmed back away from the structure.

  • Promptly wipe up spills and sweep up crumbs in kitchen areas that will attract them.

  • Closely inspect the home’s exterior for any tiny openings that might allow access and seal them with a durable caulk or weatherstripping.

  • Install sweeps on the bases of doors. 

  • Dispose of unneeded cardboard, newspaper, or other materials that mice use for building nests.

Why Is Assistance From A Licensed Pest Controller Important? 

Too many property owners attempt to take matters into their own hands by using store-bought products marketed as a fast, do-it-yourself solution to pest-related problems. Unfortunately, many of these options are insufficient for expelling pests that have become deeply entrenched in hard-to-reach areas of the property. Also, some of these mass-marketed products contain harsh chemical formulas that might pose health risks. 
Bill Clark Pest Control technicians have the tools and knowledge needed to expel mice and other rodents effectively. The process begins with a detailed inspection of the primary structure and outbuildings to determine the type of rodent involved and assess the infestation’s severity. We take the time to closely review areas, including crawl spaces, attics, and other spaces that these unwanted critters tend to burrow inside and begin constructing nesting areas. 
Our team understands the importance of identifying the point(s) of entry and other conditions that make the property inviting to these pests. It is also likely that certain areas that rodents have occupied will need to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
