How To Control Mice?
The first step to controlling a mouse population has to do with making sure that you limit all things that attract mice in the first place. Good housekeeping, proper storage and handling of food materials and disposal of organic wastes are essential. As the first control step, piles of trash, organic and not should be eliminated which can serve as hiding and nesting sites.
Rodent proofing by means of structural barriers to deny access to buildings and food is a necessity. Metal screening (6 mm) should be placed over dryer vents and other ventilation openings, and under open porches or sheds. After the entry points are sealed our licensed exterminator will perform a chemical treatment using rodenticides. Snap or glue trap treatments can also be used upon request.
Does Trapping Mice Work?
The House mouse is easily trapped with spring traps. The traps should be placed against and perpendicular to baseboards, boxes or other sheltered areas or possible runways. Traps may be baited with lightly cooked baccon. They should be inspected daily and dead mice should be removed promptly. Multi-catch traps are also available for use in food, feed and other areas where chemical rodenticides cannot be used. Glue boards can also be considered for use in such areas.
Chemical Mice Control
Chemical control is performed with the use of rodenticides. Depending on the situation, the level of infestation and layout, our exterminator will use multiple or single dose anticoagulant rodenticides. Common active ingredients in rodenticides are chlorophacinone, diphacinon.
These chemicals are placed in sealed and damage proof plastic containers to avoid contamination. These containers are then placed by the licensed exterminator in the appropriate places to induce feeding.
There are many things that can be done to prevent mice from entering a structure in the first place. These have to do with sealing all entry points so mice cannot come ine.
Doors and windows need to be kept closed at all times if not used, or have proper screening devices installed. Windows left open at night offer mice easy access. If windows have mosquito screens this will probably be satisfactory.
Common mouse proofing methods are:
- Screening of roof vents
- Sewer rat guards
- Mouse proofing of pipe openings
- Curtain Walls
- Utility Line Guards
- Metal Screening on dryer vents
- Sealing all small holes
