Mice are common visitors to our homes, especially when the weather turns cold outside. Don’t be fooled by their cute appearance, mice can cause many problems including food contamination, property damage and the spread of disease. Mice can reproduce quickly and are opportunistic feeders, leaving a trail of waste and contamination in their wake.
There are certain things that we can do to minimize our chances of an infestation.
This often plays a role in an infestation of any kind. In the case of mice, a little goes a long way. Mice need very little in the way of food in order to thrive and they are able to metabolize much of their water directly what they eat. Care must be given to minimizing potential food sources and to keeping trash receptacles and their areas clean and covered. Mouse “hot spots” include the area in your kitchen underneath the sink, any warm and dark, relatively undisturbed area such as under and behind kitchen cabinets and appliances. Mice seek out warm secluded areas to build their nests.
Keep potential invaders out of your home by sealing all cracks and crevices that lead to the outside and by installing proper door sweeps. A mouse can squeeze through an opening the size of a dime so a careful inspection of your dwelling is required.
3. Remove Unwanted Visitors.
There are many good traps available to homeowners for the removal of unwanted visitors. The new Catchmaster™ Sticky Trigger trap not only offers excellent capture and holding power but comes supplied with a highly attractive, proprietary mouse bait making it one of the most effective and convenient traps available to the consumer. For those who prefer not to handle snap traps there is an excellent alternative available. The Catchmaster™ glueboard is a rodenticide free, sticky trap that is designed to intercept mice as they move about your home. Simply remove the release paper and install the glueboard along a known mouse runway. When a mouse steps onto the trap it becomes ensnared allowing you to dispose of it properly.
Any trap you use should be checked regularly and captured rodents must be properly disposed of.
