House Mouse

Our remedy for house mouse control

First, contact us. Effective rodent control involves sealing as many holes and cracks as possible in the outside of your home. Keep firewood stored as far from the home as possible and store it off the ground. Remove piles of debris, stones, bricks and leaves near your home’s foundation. Stuff large holes or cracks in your foundation with steel wool or wire mesh before sealing with caulk or foam—otherwise mice could chew through these materials. And since mice can slip under many garage doors, don’t forget to tightly seal the door from the garage to the inside of the house.

How to Identify a House Mouse

Appearance

Small and slender, 3 to 4 inches long, with large ears, small eyes and pointed nose. Light brown or light gray. Droppings are rod-shaped.

Habitat

Mice live everywhere outside, and are found more often indoors than rats because they are smaller and more able to fit through small openings. Mice can fit through a crack or hole 1/4 of an inch or larger—about the width of a pencil. Their territory generally ranges 10 to 30 feet from their nest. They are curious but wary. They are also excellent climbers, making rodent control difficult. They can enter your home through holes in soffit vents, around cables entering the building, and through turbines and box vents on the roof.

Diet

Omnivorous, but prefers seeds and cereal grains.

Or Let us identify it for you

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!

“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
