Mouse and Rat Control and Rodent Elimination Services in Northern New Jersey
They may look cute and cuddly in the movies; but a mouse in your house poses a dangerous risk to your family and home. Mice foul food supplies and eating areas with their urine and feces. They expose your family to parasites, mites and deadly diseases including the untreatable and sometimes fatal Hantavirus. Their constant gnawing damages your home and nibbles away at your peace of mind.
The most adaptable species on Earth after man, mice live in polygamous breeding groups. A female mouse can have as many as five litters of six to a dozen pups during her average one-year life span. With offspring reaching maturing in just three months, the reproductive potential of a mouse colony is exponential. There is no such thing as one mouse!
Two types of mice are common to northern New Jersey. The gray House Mouse is about two inches long not including its long, thin tail. The House Mouse spends its life indoors rarely straying more than 10 feet from its nest. Constant nibblers, house mice dribble urine and feces across counters and cupboards, fouling food supplies as they gnaw into food boxes and pet food bags in search of nightly snacks.
Slightly larger than the House Mouse, the White-footed Deer Mouse is light brown to black with a white belly. Living in burrows or wood piles, in fall White-footed Deer Mice often move into garages and from there into your house. The White-footed Deer Mouse is a known transmitter of dangerous Hantavirus and host of the Lyme Disease-harboring deer tick.
It's hard to keep a determined mouse out of your house. Their flexible bodies allow mice to squeeze through holes no bigger than a dime. Excellent climbers, mice can enter your house along wires and pipe outlets or through crawl spaces, attic vents and sump pumps.
In attics mice gnawing through wires have started electrical fires. To effectively eliminate a mouse colony all entry and exit points must be located and tightly sealed. Amateur attempts at mouse control can trap mice inside walls permeating your home with the stench of decomposition. If you have a mouse problem, fast elimination by an experienced pest control professional is necessary to protect your family's health and safety.
