Mouse Removal Before They Bed Down in Your Home This Summer
This has been one of the longest winters in recent Massachusetts memory. You might think that spring and summer mean that indoor pests will finally find their way out. This isn’t often the case when it comes to mouse control and mouse removal. Mice in summer will still gladly bed down in your walls and crawl spaces.
A Mouse for All Seasons
The truth of the matter isn’t that mice only come inside during the winter. It’s that in the winter they have very few other choices. They’re driven inside during the winter, but they’ll still come inside during the spring, summer, and fall. They’re seeking shelter, and access to food and water. Your home is as good as any other place to find that.
If you spy a mouse scurrying out in the open, or you just barely glimpse it out of the corner of your eye, this means that you’ve probably got multiple mice. Mice will rarely chance being seen. They’re smart about avoiding people and finding routes that keep them hidden. They’re also nocturnal, so they’re mostly rooting about in your pantry at night.
Mouse About the House
If you see a mouse during the day, it means that there’s such a need for food that it’s taking chances. This indicates that there are a lot of mouths to feed. A family of 6 mice can grow 50 strong in just three months.
Mice are attracted to many foods. Cheese may be the classic food in cartoons, but the truth is that mice will eat just about everything. They’re omnivorous, so they’ll find their way into fruit, seeds, baking supplies, and especially bags of pet food.
Mouse on the Run
Mouse removal starts with a Ransford pest control specialist narrowing down their location. We can then determine the best combination of traps to use. We utilize tamper-resistant bait boxes. This prevents accidental poisoning that can take place. Children and pets don’t always know what’s pest control and what isn’t. This is why we use this approach, so that mouse control can remain safe in the home.
