Spring is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to prepare for your annual spring cleaning. Taking the time to go through your closets and purge anything you don’t use, toss expired food from the back of the refrigerator, and deal with any stacks of magazines and other clutter will give your home a fresh, organized feel to it. One of the things many people don’t include in their spring cleaning but should is calling in the mice inspection services. These professionals will look for signs of mice and help you remove them if they find any. Here are a few reasons why spring is the best time to have your home checked for mice.
During the winter, mice are going to want to get out of the cold. One of the most convenient places to spend the winter is, of course, your warm house. Once they establish a nest in your home, they’re not going to want to leave, either. By having your home inspected for mice in the early spring, you can find and remove any rodents that snuck into your home during the colder months. Unfortunately, they often also bring with them fleas, mites, and other pests, too. These pests will start multiplying in the warmer weather and can infect your pets.
Mice do more than bring in fleas and scare you when they run across the floor. They can do a lot of damage to your home and your possessions. They can eat up your documents, leave droppings in drawers and cabinets, and even chew up your wiring. Having a professional check your home once a year helps prevent all of this from happening.
If you have a cat who is indoors all or part of the time, you might assume you don’t need to worry about mice. That’s not always true. While cats may go after a mouse they see, mice don’t always make themselves known. Cats who have been indoor pets since they were young may also not necessarily know what to do with a mouse, while older cats may simply not have the energy. There are also some diseases and other issues to keep in mind when your cat hunts mice. That’s why it’s best to call in the professionals at Mice Mob Exterminators. We will take care of any rodent infestations in your home.
