If you think you have mice, you are probably right. Because your ‘hunch’ will usually be based on one or more of the following.
Once you are aware of mice in your home or office the following places should be inspected for signs of mice activity.
Mice can contaminate food with droppings, fur, and urine and are carriers of several diseases, one of which is toxoplasmosis, they pose a particular threat to pregnant women.
Mice will feed on the smallest of scraps and crumbs. They even eat soap because of their fat content. They love pet food, tiny bits of food in your carpet, on your soft furnishings, and in the children’s play areas. If you are to remove their food sources, you must adopt a forensic approach to cleaning in your home or business.
We do not advise you to block air vents for safety reasons without consulting the relevant professional first.
Look at the exterior of your home or business with a critical eye to identify gaps around pipes and cables that could be providing access areas to mice. Be aware that mice will chew through wood, MDF, plasterboard, and chicken wire and they make light work of foam fillers. Ask your builders’ merchants for the best proofing materials to use.
Do you have the right skills and equipment to tackle those hard-to-reach areas? Personal safety must always come first.
Within your home and garden, the best proofing often lies in the cleaning and restriction of access to foodstuffs, water, and nesting materials.
Can you mouse-proof your home or business? The answer is yes. But only to a limited degree. Some proofing will have to be undertaken by a qualified pest control professional like Dyno-Pest.
