Mice are a costly and damaging pest. They thrive in many different environments making any structure susceptible to a mouse problem. They contaminate our food, damage our homes and businesses, and carry many diseases.

Here are a couple of tips to help reduce your potential for a mouse invasion:

  • Find openings: Look for openings as small as a quarter of an inch. These are possible routes of entry. Stuff these openings with steel wool as mice will not chew through it.
  • Store food properly: Keep food stored properly and crumbs and debris swept from the floor to not allow for an easy mouse snack.
  • Declutter: Reduce clutter inside and out to eliminate opportunities for mice to hide and nest.
  • Enlist a predator: Cats were originally domesticated to hunt mice in homes. If you’re worried about rodents making their way indoors, enlist the help of a feline friend.

Don’t forget that a female mouse can have as many as 100 babies a year, so it is important to start a mouse control program quickly. Action Pest Control provides pest and rodent control in Indianapolis, Evansville, Jasper, Owensboro, Washington, IN, and surrounding areas.
