Would you ever own a mouse as a pet? Some people absolutely love these furry little rodents. What is interesting is that even mouse owners know that wild mice are a huge problem. They understand the importance of keeping rodents inside a clean cage and feeding them healthy things. When allowed to roam freely indoors, even pet mice will become feral. If you are worried about wild mice causing trouble inside your San Diego home, here is how to get and keep these pests out.

Clear Signs Of A Mouse Infestation In Your Home

When mice invade area homes, they do so quietly. For this reason, it is important that you know what signs these pests leave behind. Here are a few clear signs of mice to help you identify an infestation inside your home.

  • Holes chewed through walls, storage boxes, and food containers
  • Gnaw marks on furniture and other items indoors
  • Torn up insulation, fabric, and paper
  • Nests built in attics, basements, and other secluded areas indoors
  • Scampering sounds coming from wall/ceiling voids late at night
  • Pellets of fecal matter in the backs of pantries, cabinets, and other areas mice travel indoors

Why Having Mice In The House Is A Major Health Risk

Mice are among the most annoying pests here in San Diego. What you might not know is that these furry invaders are not just annoying, they are a major health risk. Mice can spread several diseases through their droppings, urine, and the pests they carry. Two pests that regularly live on mice are fleas and ticks. These small blood-feeding pests pose a threat to both humans and animals with their bites. Some common diseases mice carry into homes include salmonellosis, hantavirus, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, murine typhus, and bubonic plague. If you suspect mice are living inside your home, be extra careful not to eat food they have contaminated, and clean surfaces often until you can address the problem.

Why It Is So Hard To Get Rid Of Mice On Your Own?

Controlling mice is often a huge hassle. One thing we have found is that numbers matter. If you only have three mice or fewer crawling around inside your walls, you have a chance to get them out before they cause trouble or have a chance to breed. We recommend using some high-quality traps placed in areas you suspect mice are frequenting inside your home. Bait these traps with peanut butter. If you catch a few mice within the first two weeks and your problem subsides, great. If these pests continue to be a problem do not continue your efforts. Mice are incredibly intelligent and breed rapidly. Once these pests know that traps are dangerous, they will learn to avoid them. Even if you catch a mouse every couple of days, they may outbreed your control methods. To save yourself time, money, and hair color, let the pest control experts at Habitat Protection lend a helping hand.
