Have you seen a mouse or rat? Are you hearing noises in the walls and ceilings? Have you seen evidence they may be in your home or business? Are your pets scratching at the walls and looking under the furniture?
Mice & rats can cause extraordinary amounts of damage to homes and businesses, from chewing on wires to structural damage, let alone the damage they leave in their wake from urine and feces and the possible diseases they can spread and carry.
Mice & rats are typically first attracted by a food source, which can be bird or pet food, or people food, and of course, like most animals, they seek warmth and shelter to raise their families. Mice can squeeze through openings smaller than a dime. Once inside your home, they’re likely to live anywhere from the attic to basement and multiply quickly.
