Mice

The common house mouse is perhaps one of the most troublesome and aggravating household pests in Worcester, MA. As such, mouse control in Worcester, MA is a major pest control issue. Mice control, mice exclusion and mice extermination are all topics that homeowners in all kinds of homes and economic ranges are keenly interested in.

Mice can survive in remarkably small areas with limited amounts of food and shelter, so mouse control and mouse elimination can be fairly straightforward if you know what to look for and what to do. If you suspect you have mice control issues, look for gnawed areas, tiny mouse droppings that look like dark grains of rice, and tracks in dust, snow around foundations, and dirt. Their constant gnawing can cause extensive household damage and are a huge fire risk as they like to gnaw on wiring covered with insulation. According to Gordon E. Ivory, CFEI, CVFI, CFII, RL (Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator) Up to 20% of undetermined fires are believed to be caused by rodents chewing on wires.

Effects from mouse droppings and urine can also lead to causing serious illnesses in people, such as salmonella and Hantavirus. One mouse can create 50 droppings per day and urinate or dribble as they search for food up to 2,000 times a day.

Mouse extermination is an extreme form of mouse control. It typically involves the use of non-poisonous traps as well as mouse bait, best administered by professional Worcester, MA mouse exterminators such as Ford’s Hometown Services. Mouse bait is often a last resort for effective mouse elimination and mouse control.

However, the most effective mice control starts with good sanitation – cleaning and properly maintaining food storage areas so they don’t attract mice. In fact, all places where food is stored, processed, or used should be made mouse-proof so that mouse control is more efficient from the start. That means sealing up any holes or openings larger than a quarter of an inch, paying special attention to foundations, pipe openings, vents, and other points of entry to the indoors. Good mouse control is helped considerably by the proper sealing of these kinds of external access points.

Mice exterminators such as the rodent control experts at Ford’s offer a number of effective mice control, mice exclusion and mice extermination products and techniques to fit the size and scope of any mouse infestation. In fact, mice control and mice management are service specialties here at Ford’s.
