Spotting Mice in Your Home: Time to Take Action

Free Inspections – Lifetime warranty*

Have you ever noticed when everything gets really quiet at home, you begin to hear muffled scurrying or faint scratching sounds? Such noises coming from your walls or ceilings, especially at night, could be more significant than you think. They could imply that you’re sharing your home with some small, uninvited guests: mice. At Home Free Wildlife and Pest Removal, we’re here to decipher the signs of a mouse infestation and guide you through getting rid of these tiny trespassers.

Picking Up on the Clues

Mice are subtle creatures. Because of their size and nocturnal nature, you might actually be living with them long before you see one. So, how do you know if you have mice?

The first signs could be strange sounds. These could be the rustle of mice scurrying around when the house is quiet, or soft scratching from the walls or ceilings. Mice are quite good at keeping hidden away during the day, but they roam around exploring and foraging at night, giving away their presence.

Another dead giveaway (pun intended) is the droppings. Mouse droppings look like dark grains of rice, and you might find them along your baseboards, inside kitchen cabinets or hidden crevices. Since mice are creatures of habit, you’ll likely find these droppings where they’ve been frequenting. Nerdy fact: a single mouse can produce up to 100 droppings per day. So you can imagine what a handful of these little guys could leave behind.

Furthermore, if you spot a mouse, it usually means there are plenty more hidden away. Since mice are naturally secretive creatures, we rarely see them unless the infestation is serious. Also, chewed-on or gnawed food items, whether it’s fruit in the bowl or a box in the pantry, can certainly suggest the existence of these small gnawers.

From Detection to Action

Discovering that you’ve been hosting some uninvited guests can be a tad unsettling. The standard knee-jerk response might be to rush out and buy an assortment of traps or poisons. However, this approach, although may exterminate a few mice, isn’t a long-term solution. Why? Until you’ve blocked off their entry points into your home, the cycle will continue: kick a few out, and a few more come in. You’re dealing with the symptoms, not the cause.

When you decide to seek professional help, you opt for an all-encompassing solution. We begin with a comprehensive inspection to determine the severity of the infestation and identify their entry points. Now begins the core of our mission: preventive work. This involves us going over the exterior of your home very carefully, sealing off all potential entrances to stop any more mice from getting in. It’s like setting up an impenetrable fortress, only this time, the invaders are tiny furballs.

Next, we apply a one-way door system for the mice already bunking in the house. As the name suggests, this system lets the mice exit but doesn’t allow them back in. And don’t you worry, we make sure all of them have left before sealing the door. Following this, we ensure deep cleaning and decontamination to eradicate any potential hazards left behind by the mice. And to top it all off, every work that we do comes with a lifetime warranty! That’s how confident we are in our services.

Waiting Isn’t an Option

Playing host to mice is more than a nuisance. These tiny critters can pose risks to your family’s health, and destroy property by gnawing through wires, insulation, and even walls, not to mention the stress they cause homeowners.

Whisking out the welcome mat for mice by spotting the signs early will save you a lot of trouble. Remember, we are here to help you.
