How To Confirm That It's Mice In Your House
Mice in Madison are nocturnal, and while they are happy to share our food and space, they tend to avoid people. Even though you might not catch sight of the actual rodents, there are plenty of signs of mice you can check for, such as:
Damaged food packages in the pantry.
A strong ammonia-like smell from their urine.
Gnaw marks that can be rough or smooth.
Rod-shaped dropping less than 1/4 of an inch long.
Pathways with droppings, rub marks, and footprints.
Whether you see an actual rodent or some of the signs, it is time to take action. Contact us today at ProfExt Pest Control for assistance eliminating mice from your home.
Mice Can Spread Diseases And Damage Property
When mice nest in your house, they risk your family's health and property. The following list includes some of the many problems an infestation of mice can cause:
Mouse droppings and urine contaminate food and surfaces with bacteria.
Their waste can trigger allergies and asthma attacks.
Mice can spread illnesses such as leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM), and tularemia.
Mice bring fleas, mites, ticks, and lice into your home.
Mice in the walls will contaminate insulation and create a fire hazard when they chew on wires.

Why Do-It-Yourself Mouse Control Often Fails
House mice are social animals, so if you see one, there are likely many more hiding throughout the house. Mice also reproduce rapidly, having up to 35 young per year, which means any infestation you have will only worsen. DIY mouse pest control, such as traps and baits, may catch a single mouse occasionally, but they aren't enough to eradicate an infestation.
DIY products also fail to get to the source of the problem. If you don't address how mice get in and what attracts them, they will keep coming back. Reach out to us today at ProfExt Pest Control to learn more about how our mouse control services will help you get rid of these troublesome pests and keep them from returning.
