Mice might be little rodents, but they’re a big problem for businesses. They feed on your food, destroy your paper, plastic, and boxes, and can breed very rapidly. The worst part is that their urine, saliva, and feces can contain bacteria and viruses that are a threat to your employees’ and customers’ health. You should call a pest control service at the first sign of mice.
So what does a pest control company do when they’re eliminating mice from your property? Here are some ways that commercial mice removal is handled.
Inspect the Site
A pest control specialist will know what to look for when it comes to mice infestations. You might have seen droppings or places where mice have rubbed against your walls, but a specialist will have an even better understanding of your site. By looking over your property, they’ll be able to tell how bad the infestation is, why the mice are there, where they’re hiding, and where you could be doing more to keep them from coming back.
Remove the Mice
You didn’t want the mice there, so it’s time for them to go. Commercial mouse removal services will generally use traps or poison to kill mice that are on your property. There are a lot of different kinds of traps, so it’s possible that during the course of treating your problem they will try a few different options to make sure that the invasion is contained. If you’re concerned about your impact on the environment, companies like Command7 offer eco-friendly removal options that can get rid of your mouse problem, but keep humans safe and healthy.
Keep Mice from Coming Back
Stopping an infestation doesn’t end at getting rid of the existing mice: you have to prevent them from ever coming back. Mouse control service companies will know what to look for and be able to block entrances that mice use. Given that mice can fit into holes that are smaller than dimes, it’s a big job. Cracks in your foundation, openings in the walls for vents or pipes, weather stripping, and door sweeps can all let pests in. They might even invite themselves in if your lawn gets too long or covered in weeds they can nest in. Mice can gnaw through plastic, rubber, and wood, so there might be recommendations for other materials to use to close caps, secure openings, tighten up outdoor seals, and protect your property.
Give You Prevention Tips
Pest control specialists are experts on your unwelcome guests. Those that focus on mice will know everything there is to know about their habits, senses, and social behaviors. They’ll use this knowledge in fighting the infestation, but also in educating you about how to prevent them from coming back. A good company won’t just come in, get rid of the problem, and leave: they’ll give you tips on where to place traps, what kinds of traps to use, where you can mouse-proof your building, and tips on cleaning and sealing your supplies and products so that they won’t be enticing to mice. What’s more is that a pest control service like Command7 will likely keep coming back to make sure that the maintenance is working and that the problem is getting fixed.
