Mice Control & Extermination

Entry Points and How to Stop their Intrusion

Mice need warm temperatures, and the winter months mean they will look for access into your home, garage, basement, and more. Once inside your home, they only require a minute amount of water and food to survive.

While mice are “cuter” than rats, they can be every bit as damaging and hazardous to health and property. Just like rats, mice eat and contaminate human/pet food, gnaw on wood/electrical wires, and shred insulation.

If you are dealing with mice, Pest Exit can eliminate them from your home. Our team of pest control experts is just a phone call away!

Entry Points

With the small size of a mouse, their entry points can be anywhere that a dime could squeeze through. This makes finding and closing entryways for mice a real challenge, especially once they have already established themselves. Keep an eye out for these potential entry points:

  • Cracks in the foundation may seem too small, but if a dime can fit, then so can a mouse.
  • Pipes containing any amount of water can be attractive to mice looking for a water source.
  • Man-made holes for wiring, cables, and piping are plenty big enough for a mouse.

Keep Rodents Out

Proper treatment is more than laying mouse traps. Our pest control professionals will conduct an inspection of your home to identify the source of the rodents, seal entry points, and conduct our rodent treatment program.
