Mice Removal Minneapolis & St Paul MN

Even though some pests are “out of sight, out of mind” for the winter months, there are still many insects, mice and rodents that would be happy to make your Minnesota home theirs. Don’t allow yourself to welcome a pest infestation into your home this winter.

Damages may occur to your house by wild animals or by pests. These unwanted vermin can eat away at your electrical wiring, roof line and siding, nest in your walls, vents and attics, and burrow under your foundation, all causing serious damage. What is worse is the fact that if you leave these animals or pest alone, they will multiply causing increased damage and costing you even more money!

Get Rid of Mice: Prevention

Mice are one of the most common and unwanted house guests ever!

To get rid of mice start by making your home as uninviting to them as possible. Before you setup some traps, make sure you understand how to keep mice out.

To get rid of mice means not tempting them into your home.

The average mouse only needs a hole a quarter of an inch (1/4″) in diameter to squeeze through. Make sure you seal your door sills, cupboards, walls and any places where mice might come in. Check your foundations for possible entry points. Make sure doors and ground-level windows are sealed correctly. If you find any discrepancies, use putty, caulk or my favorite – steel wool to address the problem before mice get into your home.

Once in, they chew through nearly everything from walls to food to cardboard boxes to electrical wiring, which may lead to electrical short and fire.

If you don’t see one directly, you can tell you have a problem by the gnawing evidence, or hearing scampering or gnawing sounds in the attic or inside walls. You could also find droppings in undisturbed areas of the house such as pantries, attics, and along baseboards and walls.

If you see a mouse in the daytime, odds are that the infestation is very serious. The most common signs of a mouse/mice problem are the presence of droppings around baseboards, kitchen cabinets, and storage areas. Some people can hear mice gnawing in walls, scampering, or squeaking. Cat and dogs may scratch at a wall hearing or smelling mice within.

If you find these telltale signs, seek out a professional pest control expert quickly. Besides causing damage to your home, rodents can also cause allergies and spread potentially lethal diseases such as the hantavirus and arena virus. A Minnesota animal control expert can help you get rid of the rodent problem you have and help you to prevent a future invasion.

The Prevention of Hantavirus Disease Post-It Card

Prevention of Hantavirus Disease post-it cards

Post it on your refrigerator! Nail it up in your shed or barn! Give a copy to your friends and neighbors!

This handy card has quick tips and pictures so you’ll always remember how to rodent-proof your home or clean up if you find rodents. It’s available in both English and Spanish versions.

Common household disinfectants can be used to substitute for bleach solution when spraying down areas infested by rodents. If you’re worried that the surface to be sprayed will stain or discolor, detergent — not plain soap — can be used instead.

At the first sign of insect infestation or wild animal threat call a professional pest or animal control expert right away!

After a thorough property inspection they will present you with a plan of action. The plan might include the use of insecticides, pesticides or traps. They will also do their best to locate the source of the infestation and eliminate it. If damage to your property has been done they will inform you. If your health is in jeopardy due to the insects they will tell you how to restore safe and sanitary conditions.
