It is getting colder outside and people are not the only mammals that want to stay warm and cozy inside this winter. The months of September, October, November and December are especially brutal for anyone who wants to keep mice and other rodents outside where they belong. A mouse can enter through a tiny space and set up home inside of your home, living in walls, attics and anywhere they can find refuge from the cold winter weather. The results can be very disturbing when you find rodent droppings or hear scratching or chewing sounds coming from inside of the building. Minnesota Wild Animal Management, Inc. provides animal control and prevention services that can keep mice and other animals out this fall and winter.
How Do I Know Rodents Have Gotten Inside?
Rodents including mice, chipmunks, squirrels and rats can be very persistent and sneaky but they are not invisible. They often leave behind evidence in the form of animal feces, foul odors, chewed packaging and nesting materials like paper, insulation or fabric scraps.
Of course the most obvious proof that rodents have gotten inside is the sight of a mouse or other pest running across the floor, climbing curtains or hiding in cupboards. The sounds are another telltale sign of a critter living inside the home or business. Listen for scratching, chewing, gnawing or squeaking. If you notice any signs of rodents, call in the wild animal removal and prevention experts at Minnesota Wild Animal Management, Inc.
Prevent Mice From Getting Inside Your Home
