The most common type of mouse to infest your walls is the house mouse. The field mouse is more likely to be found outside or in your attic, they can climb and jump very far distances which allows them to easily get on the roof and enter through almost any opening like a broken vent, a soffit with a gap, or hole and even the fascia vents. These areas are easy to access for many animals like squirrels, raccoons, and even birds who love to nest in vents. The house mice, however, do not start at the top of the house, they start from the bottom. They usually enter a house through an open window into the basement, the back door, or even through a weep vent. Mice can compress their bodies and squeeze through gaps that look impossibly tight so make sure to seal up your foundation and hire an exterminator technician to exclude all of the openings in the house. The truth about this situation is that if you have animals or pests in your home the cause is the builders. The state of the home construction industry is shambolic. The corners that are cut, the important items often left out can leave your home open to invasion by aggressive animals and insects. It may seem pricey but the exclusion will last for a lifetime. if you are experiencing a rodent problem, call Mouse Control Mississauga
Mice are not something you can get rid of on your own. Glue traps are the most foolish choice as other animals can get caught on them very easily. Especially your pets, who will often try to chew their leg off to get the trap off them. This could result in a bloody mess. The mice who do get caught will not die instantly, they will slowly starve to death and then, as they get too hungry to bear it, they will start cannibalizing each other. This means when you pick up your metal-encased glue trap, there could be some spillage. Cats are also entirely useless, even if they killed ten mice a day they would never be able to keep up with the speed mice can breed. The result of all of this is that only one method works and can be used to exterminate whole colonies of mice. Poison. Poison-like commercial-grade rodenticide tastes like mouse-like food, but it is a chemical intended to dehydrate the mouse and cause it to leave the house in search of water. Because mice rarely drink water they may not know where to find it in the house and will have to go. Dealing with mice can be extremely tiring and to deal with this effectively call Mouse Control.
