At Bug Commander Pest Control in Frisco, TX, we offer a rodent removal service that will rid your home of mice and rats. Think you don’t have a rodent problem? Think again. According to the National Pest Management Association, nearly one-third of American households are infested with mice or rats, which means there’s a good chance your home is one of them.
The Rodent You’re Most Likely To Encounter
In non-densely-populated urban areas, the critter you’re most likely going to have a problem with is mice and, despite their size, mice are almost as destructive as rats – and they carry the same diseases. And also like rats, mice know that the best place for food, water, and warmth is where humans are. Right now, you may have some furry, little house guests hunkering down in your attic, basement (if you have one), garage and wall voids, waiting till you go to sleep to forage through your home.
Mouse Signs To Look For
If you don’t see mice, how will you know if you have a mouse problem? Usually, the first thing you’ll notice are mouse droppings – those delightful little, black pellets that you find on the kitchen counter or on a bookshelf. You’ll also need to watch for nests made of shredded paper and fibers. These are usually found in storage boxes in areas of the home that are undisturbed like the attic and basement. You may also see gnaw marks on food containers or hear scratching noises behind the wall.
Why You Need Help With Your Mouse Problem
If you see signs of a mouse infestation in your home, call us at Bug Commander Pest Control for our rodent removal service as soon as possible. Mice can carry diseases like bubonic plague, Lyme disease, typhus, and the Hantavirus. Even if they’re not carrying potentially fatal diseases, their feces contain millions of bacteria that can contaminate the surfaces we touch and the food we eat. In addition, rodents are prolific breeders who pose a fire danger because they often chew through electrical wires.
What You Can Do Before Help Arrives
Professional rodent removal can rid your home of your entire mouse problem; if you want to get started before the cavalry arrives, set up mouse traps baited with peanut butter in several areas of your home. Be careful that they’re not placed anywhere that children and pets can get to them. If you catch a mouse, don’t touch it to remove it from the trap. If you’re using wooden traps, throw the trap and the mouse in the trash.
