Atlanta Mice Removal
House mice are gray or brown rodents with relatively large ears and small eyes. An adult weighs about 1/2 ounce and is about 5 1/2 to 7 1/2 inches long, including the 3 to 4 inch tail.
Although house mice usually feed on cereal grains, they will eat many kinds of food. They eat often, nibbling bits of food here and there. They eat food meant for humans and pets and have keen senses of taste,
hearing, smell, and touch. They are excellent climbers and can run up any rough vertical surface. They can slip through a crack that a pencil will fit into (slightly larger than 1/4 inch in diameter).
Mice removal is about more than convenience. House mice contaminate food-preparation surfaces with their feces, which can cause food poisoning (salmonellosis). Their constant gnawing causes damage to structures and property.
Droppings, fresh gnawing and tracks indicate you may have a mouse or mice. Mice also have a musky odor that identifies their presence and indicates you need mice removal services.
The house mouse has adapted to living year-round in homes, restaurants, and other structures. Homeowners will most likely notice the mice when the weather changes and the cold force them indoors in search of warmth, food and shelter. Once mice become established inside a home, they can be extremely difficult to control without mice removal services.
Although most people consider mice less objectionable than rats, mice are more common and cause significantly more damage. They breed and produce 6-10 litters throughout the year. They can get into your food, clothing, furniture, and books and contaminate your belongings with their droppings and urine, or damage by their gnawing. The house mouse will gnaw through electrical wiring, causing fires and failure of freezers, clothes dryers and other appliances.
Good sanitation and food storage practices are helpful in reducing problems with house mice, but mice removal is the only real way to solve the issue.
Effective mouse control involves sanitation, mouse proof construction and population reduction. When a mouse infestation already exists, some form of population reduction is almost always necessary.
