Mice invade homes and businesses seeking shelter and food, especially as the weather gets colder. They hardly ever live or travel alone, so if you see one mouse, others won’t be far behind.
Mice reproduce quickly, sometimes giving birth to up to 10 litters each year. That means that even just two or three mice can turn into a large infestation quickly.
What’s worse is when these mice carry harmful diseases that could threaten the health of your family. The longer mice remain in one place, the more likely residents will come in contact with the bacteria, viruses, and germs mice carry. Many serious illnesses are transmitted by mice, whether through direct or indirect contact. Mice are notorious, as well, for gnawing through electrical wires, which can cause a sudden, destructive fire.
Placing mouse traps here and there may catch a few mice, but usually won’t allow you to gain control of the problem. Your home or commercial property needs to be inspected by a licensed professional and preventative measures need to be put in place for total mice control.
