If you have been struggling with a mouse infestation for a few weeks, the best thing you can do is call in professional mice exterminators to take care of your problem.
Mice are tiny brown or light grey rodents that are just inches long. They have large ears and long tails and have been romanticized by children’s cartoons and books. However, do not be mistaken, these “cute” little rodents are a danger to your home.
What Dangers to Mice Pose?
They not only destroy your property with their gnawing (books, plastic, paper, wires – all can be destroyed by these little rodents), they also destroy your food and spread diseases. According to the World Health Organization, about 20% of the food in the world is destroyed or contaminated by mice and other rodents, leading to severe cases of food poisoning.
Other diseases spread by these pesky little rodents are Lyme disease, rat-bite fever, Hantavirus, Typhus, the Pox and the Plague. In fact, in 1946, there was a huge epidemic of the Pox in New York City in its housing developments due to an uncontrolled infestation of mite-infected mice.
The long and the short of it is that mice are dangerous and they need to be removed from your home as soon as possible.

Mice propagate very fast. A couple of mice can – in just a few weeks – mate and multiply into a proper infestation. So, if you notice dead mice, mouse droppings (dark piece that look like black grains of rice) or a strange musty smell in your home, don’t wait. Do something about it immediately.
You can try getting rid of the mice on your own – there are mouse traps of various kinds in the market, mouse baits stations, poisons or even natural methods of using strong smells that chase mice away (such as peppermint or even kitty litter). However, if you have not been successful after a couple of weeks, you need to call in professionals.

How to Ensure Mice Never Re-Enter Your Home
While we can come and help you with the mice extermination, it is up to you to ensure that mice can never enter your home again. There are just a few simple steps you need to take to ensure that you never have to face another mouse infestation in your home.
- Keep all your food tightly sealed. Use mouse-proof containers such as cans to store your food.
- Look at all areas to identify items that could attract mice such as a big bag of bird seed in your garage, for example.
- If you haven’t already done so, call a handyman or call us to fix all those tiny little gaps in your home that would be perfect entry points for mice.
