The sun is shining and the warmer weather may be turning our attention to pests like mosquitoes and stinging insects, but let’s not forget that mice can infest our homes and properties all year long. Now is the perfect time to put preventative measures in place so that you can enjoy your home and property, mouse-free, all year long.

Mice Prevention In Summer

You may have seen mice or seen the signs they leave behind throughout the wintertime. Now with the warmer weather, they will become more active and you will need to be aware of the dangers they can cause. They are carriers of diseases such as salmonella, leptospirosis, and hantavirus, just to name a few. They can also carry parasites like fleas and ticks that can cause other diseases like tapeworm or Lyme disease. Along with their potential health risks, they can also cause significant damage to a home or property.

Here are few tips to help discourage mouse activity around your home and property:

  • Remove or cut back vegetation

  • Remove or reduce water sources

  • Eliminate piles of junk, wood, and other items

  • Eliminate or contain food sources and trash

  • Contact a professional pest control company like American Pest for year-round pest control services.

How American Pest Can Help Prevent Mice

The highly trained rodent experts here at American Pest can remove elusive, fast-moving mice from your home efficiently and effectively. DIY mouse removal cannot assure your success, and chemicals can be hazardous if not mixed or applied properly. We deal with mouse infestation calls all year long, and we are really good at finding all of the nooks and crannies that mice tend to hide in and eliminate the entire population.

When you give us a call, our licensed pest control professionals will perform an inspection. We will then seal off all entry points to assure mice cannot re-enter your home. Next, we will install rodent bait stations to control mice from the outside, which is followed by our interior/exterior rodent treatment. This is the step where our licensed professional will effectively treat for active mice issues inside your home. Lastly, we will follow up at a later date for additional inspections and treatments if necessary. These additional service calls are built into our Premium Pest Control plans, for your convenience.
