Mouse & Rodent Control

Mice

A family of 6 mice can grow to 50-60 mice in 90 days. Mice will burrow into homes, porches, decks, attics and crawl spaces. They can access your home through an opening the size of a dime. They find their way into kitchens, pantries and food storage areas. Mice are excellent climbers. They are omnivores and will eat almost anything. They can cause a lot of damage to insulation, wiring and wood.
