Hi there, my name is Harvey. Welcome to my site. I am here to talk to you about pest control. There are so many different pests in my area. We have spiders, ants, house centipedes and moths that seem to congregate together at various times of the year. In other parts of the world, there are even more pests waiting to enter the homestead undetected. I would like to share pest control practices everyone can use to keep insects out of their homes. I hope you will visit my site often to learn all you can about pest control. Thanks for visiting.
When mice have settled into your home, they can quickly and quietly become a nuisance and a health hazard. If you begin trapping them early, you can get rid of a colony before it becomes established. But if the colony grows, you'll soon need a rodent control service to help get rid of these pests.
The Rapidly Growing Mouse Colony
Each female mouse can produce a litter every three weeks with up to six mice in the litter. Dozens of mice are added to the colony each year this way, making it difficult to keep up with the growth to get rid of the mice. As the colony grows, more mice will wander out into your home looking for food and nesting materials.
They will search in drawers and cupboards, in closets and behind furniture and appliances. Mice don't hesitate to jump and climb and may be found on the upper shelves in a closet or on a book shelf. They chew into food packages, gnaw on paper products and clothing, and leave droppings that can spread disease to your family and pets.
Setting Traps Out
If you can get rid of enough mice from a colony and restrict their access to food sources, the rest of the colony will move out. Start putting traps out as soon as you see a mouse or signs of their activity. Some tips to help you successfully trap the mice include:
If the mouse colony grows faster than your ability to trap them, you'll need a rodent control service to come out to help. They will search for and remove the primary nesting areas and the mice living in them.
