Mice can be cute and friendly creatures to play with when you keep them as pets. However, when wild mice get into your home, it can cause a lot of problems both health and infrastructure-wise. If left alone for too long, mice can triple their population in no time, and cause very costly damages.
Once they have grown accustomed to your home, it will be quite difficult to get them out. Mice quickly become aware of their surroundings, so placing traps on your own can prove to be difficult, as they will often not take the bait from a foreign object. And even if your traps are successful, it is important to know you should never handle mice, either living or dead. For that, you should enlist professional mouse removal services, like the ones we offer at Critter Control® Gainesville.
Dangers of Mice
It’s easy for mice to infest your home without you knowing. Mice can fit into holes and cracks ¼ the size of their bodies. And if they nest in your home undisturbed, a few mice can turn into a large infestation. And since your home has everything they need- food, water, shelter warmth- they won’t want to leave on their own. The longer they stay, the more time they have to inflict damage on your home like chewing through your walls, ripping out your insulation, and fraying your wiring, causing fire hazards.
They will often wander into your kitchen and other areas of your home in search of food, so make sure you pay close attention to your food storage areas. If you think your food has been tampered with by mice, whether they actually ate it or just walked on it, it is important that you dispose of it properly to keep your family safe from diseases.
