Essential Mouse Prevention Tips for Your Household

Have you seen signs of mice scampering around your house, yard, or business? Maybe you’ve seen the gnawed frays of electrical wires, wooden floorboards, or the pellet-sized “treats” a mouse might have left you? If you’ve noticed any of these signs, you’re in need of mice proofing in Chicago.

Remove and Seal
If you and the exterminator have determined you have a mouse infestation, they must be removed as soon as possible. Mice reproduce frequently, and one or two mice will quickly turn into dozens. Research mouse exterminators that offer 100% mouse removal guarantees for a year or more, and look for those with a thorough plan of action to exterminate your mouse problem. When the mice have been effectively removed, the exterminator should seal all points of entry so the mice can’t return any time soon.

Disinfect
Your mouse problem has been stopped in its tracks and sent packing, but the job isn’t done yet. Mice are frequent carriers of disease and can transmit them through their urine or feces. On top of destroying possible food stores, books, and furniture, they can seriously harm you or your family. Diseases linked to mice include Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Rat-Bite Fever, Salmonellosis, and Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis, among others. Your mouse exterminator should offer a disinfectant solution as part of their exterminating package. This disinfecting process will combat any health concerns brought on by the mice, as well as eradicating odors and scents that might attract other pests.
