How to Get Rid of Mice

Mice create messes and will chew through walls, wires and other materials. An infestation of mice or other rodents in your home or business puts people at risk of spreading disease  and other health risks. In short, you do not want to just live with a mouse infestation in and around your property.

Western Exterminator has mouse control specialists on staff who are trained to help get rid of mice and prevent future infestations. It's one of the very first services we offered as a company going all the way back to 1921.

If you have spotted the signs of a mouse infestation or seen mice in your home contact Western Exterminator for an appointment with one of our specialists.

Signs of a Mouse Infestation

Mice are shy and want to hide from you, but they tend to leave a lot of signs that they have been there. First, they come out at night looking for food, so you may see one of them run across your path in the middle of the night. If that happens, it's pretty easy to guess that you have a mouse problem. However, you can also look for these signs.

  • Droppings - mice tend to leave a lot of droppings behind. You will see them in closets, behind bookcases and other areas where they like to hide. Their feces can attract bacteria and all kinds of other nastiness that can lead to potentially serious health problems..
  • Urine - mice also like to leave urine behind. Often times, you will notice odd-looking black or brown smears on the floor which is in fact urine and feces left behind by mice. This is a mess you do not want around your home, family or pets.
  • Chew marks - if you find chewed boxes, furniture, paper or other products around your home, including food, there is a good chance you have mice. Mice use paper and cardboard to line their nests. Mice also chew on the insulation around wiring and will chew through the furniture to get at the stuffing in cushions for their nests, too. If you leave a bag of bread out, mice will chew right through the loaf of bread.
  • Dirty smear marks - mice have terrible vision and they navigate around rooms by sticking close to the walls. They also travel through dirty areas of the house and this causes their fur to be dirty and greasy and when they walk along the walls, they leave smears that indicate where they are.

These are just some of the signs of a mouse infestation. A Western Exterminator mouse control specialist can find more and determine the type of mouse, how they got in and where they are likely hiding.
