Mice are so tiny and careful that they can go unnoticed for quite some time. They’ll sneak into the house when you least expect it and nest in the walls where you cannot see them, only to multiply rapidly and put you at risk of getting sick. It’s much better to keep them away than it is to remove them from the home. If you suspect some mouse activity on your property, feel free to give Mouse Removal Toronto a call. We send pests packing!
Mice are small rodents that feed mostly on fruits, vegetables, seeds, and grains. Their bodies measure somewhere between 6 and 11cm in length and their tails are just as long. Mice have big, round ears, pointed snouts, and bulging black eyes. As nocturnal animals, mice are usually only awake at night. Their vision is poor, but they can hear and smell very well. Mice are drawn to people’s homes in search of food, water, and shelter from the cold. To get inside, mice will crawl through open doors or the gaps beneath them. They will also squeeze through any other cracks or gaps they find on the exterior of the home.
Electronic mouse repellents are electronic devices that emit ultrasonic sound waves that are irritating to mice. These sounds are so high pitched that humans cannot hear them. To use these devices, simply place them in areas of high mouse activity. The sounds they make should be alarming to mice and prevent them from settling down in the home. Multiple machines will be required, however, because the sound waves cannot pass through walls and pieces of furniture. It should also be noted that there is very little evidence supporting the effectiveness of these devices. It will likely take more than a few ultrasonic repellents to keep mice off your property.
If you want to keep mice away from your home, start by blocking off any potential entrances the animals could use to get inside. Check the outer walls of your home for any gaps in the bricks, foundation, or sliding and seal them appropriately. You can also cover wall vents with steel mesh. Then, check if the weatherstripping on your garage door needs to be replaced. Inside the house, block any holes you find with caulking or steel wool. Reduce as much clutter as you can around the house and keep the kitchen tidy. Avoid leaving any food out overnight and store pantry goods in sealed containers.
