When cute and fuzzy mice get into your home, getting them out may not seem as important as it really is. Even though mice are commonly kept as pets, wild mice pose a great danger to you, your family, and your home. With the diseases they can spread and the damage they can inflict on your home, it is important to contact a professional as soon as signs of an infestation occur. Proactively preventing an infestation, however, is the best way to keep your home and family safe.
We at Critter Control® Ft Lauderdale, we’ve put together a list of some of the best ways you can keep mice out of your home:
- Mouse Traps- Using mouse traps around the entryways in your home is a cheap way to prevent mice. However, if you already have mice in your home, it can be challenging to figure out the best location in which to place the traps. If left in the open, the traps could injure and pets or children in the household.
- Poison- Leaving poison out is effective, again, when you know where to place it and how to handle it. Although it will get rid of mice, it is also dangerous for humans and pets to be around. Additionally, you’ll need a professional to come in and remove all the mouse carcasses, since handling mice (dead or alive) can spread diseases.
- Pest Proofing- Perhaps the best and safest way to prevent infestations is to go around your home and search for any small holes a small critter, like mice, could fit through. By eliminating their entry points, it will be much harder, if not impossible, for them to get in. Remember, mice can fit through holes much smaller than their bodies, so look closely!
