Mice

Where they live

The house mouse is worldwide pest of homes and buildings. They are nocturnal creatures and are extremely inquisitive, exploring their surroundings mainly by touch as their eyesight is not particularly good. The house mouse is just about what you’d expect a mouse to be – small (2 to 3 inches), gray-brown or black with an almost naked tail as long or longer than its body and weighing less than an ounce. The mouse, however, can eat about one-tenth of its weight each day. They prefer to live in the comfort of niches between walls and behind cabinets and appliances. The House Mouse has a very prolific reproductive system breeding year round and having as many as eight litters annually. Females can start having their litters at the age of one and a half to two months. Life expectancy for a wild mouse is no more than one year. Mice have a diet of a variety of foods, such as seeds, grains and nuts requiring only about 1/10 ounce of food each day, and can live without access to fresh water as long as their solid food is fairly moist.

Contamination of Food

One of the main problems faced from having a mouse in your house is their contamination of food with their urine and feces. Food and food preparation surfaces can easily become contaminated even when only a small number of mice are present. Their gnawing on wood, paper, cloth, books and insulation on wiring can also pose a real threat for any homeowner. This can be noted by observing gnawing leaves paired tooth marks about 1/8 inch wide and also seeing droppings which are rod-shaped and about 1/3 to ¼ inches long. Mice can also consume considerable quantities of stored seed and grains from farmers and granaries.

Disease

Mice can carry a wide variety of diseases transmissible to humans. A very real problem with the infestation of mice is the Hantavirus. Another major concern is salmonellosis which is transmitted by mice and is a concern in food storage and preparation areas.

Preparation for professional Treatment

Inspect the whole premises inside and outside and locate any holes or opening where mice can enter in to the home or building and plug those holes and entry points. Remove the sources of food where they are feeding particularly look in the kitchen cabinets, closets or any other place of food storage. Make sure garbage bags should not be left open rather place the garbage bags in garbage bins and lid closed. While mice control service is done, make sure that pets and children should be out of the way.

RATS

Rodents are the largest group of mammals with over 1500 representative species worldwide. Only 3 of these rodents associate closely with man and are considered as pests - the Black Rat, Brown Rat & House Mouse. Rodents threaten almost every aspect of daily lives; rats and mice will invade buildings in search of food and shelter and in doing so they become a serious nuisance by contaminating, soiling and destroying commodities & packaging, damaging equipment, buildings and installations and spreading pathogens. Closer examination would reveal droppings and damage to various items in the home. Mice are prolific breeders, and sizeable infestations will soon take hold on a property. Damage can be widespread and the spread of various diseases is a very real threat.
