While mice may not be as big and ugly looking as rats are, they can be just as alarming to have present in your home. In fact, mice may even surpass rats when it comes to the destruction and health concerns they bring indoors due to their ability to reproduce quickly, contaminate human foods, and the damage they cause with their chronic gnawing habit. If you’ve seen even a single mouse scurrying around on your premises, you must act quickly because things can only get worse if you are inactive. Mice do not need a lot of time to multiply and before you know it you have a full-blown infestation on your hands that will be extremely difficult to control.

How We Tackle Invading Mice 
in Sparks, Carson City, & Beyond

In order successfully remove a mouse infestation, whether small or large, is to have a multi-faceted approach in treating the problem as opposed to using one single method or product. At Truckee Meadows Pest Control, our professionals have developed a proven method of getting rid of mice that involves three basic steps: sanitation, exclusion, and then the application of bait products and traps. 

Step 1: Inspection and Sanitation

All successful mouse control programs begin with a thorough inspection and sanitation of your home to determine their active areas and make your home less appealing to live in. We will scan carefully around your property and make note of the areas where they have been found traveling and hanging around. Typically the prime areas where they are found are between wall voids, in the kitchen, or even outdoors. 

We will check for mouse droppings and listen for squeaks and noises. After that, we will help you to sanitize your home thoroughly to make it so that the mice do not have any food and water sources out in the open for them to enjoy. Some sanitation measures include reducing clutter as much as possible, vacuuming, sweeping and mopping up food crumbs and grease and oils around the kitchen.

Step 2: Baiting and Trapping

Once a detailed inspection and sanitation are complete, we will then strategically apply baits and traps. Mice will be eager to take any bait you leave out if you did a good job with sanitation as there would be no other food that they can swipe up and eat. We will take palatable bait blocks and place them inside protective bait stations and place those stations in areas of high mice activity. Preferably, these would be placed near walls rather than in an open space such as, shelves, under the sink, behind refrigerators, or anywhere we have noticed an actual mouse or mouse droppings.

Here is when we also place lethal and non-lethal traps depending on your preference. Lethal traps are snap traps that will kill or incapacitate the mouse that comes across them. Glue traps or non-lethal traps will capture mice without harming them. They can later be released into the wild. With this combination of baiting and trapping, it won’t take long to see results.

Step 3: Preventative measures

At this point, those rodents around your home have been caught or poisoned. But our work is not done yet. We will then carry out a prevention routine to discourage mice from seeking out your home in the future. This includes sealing gaps and holes with caulk, foam, or copper mesh. With these exclusion measures, combined with the consistent cleaning of your home and making sure it is not cluttered, your mice problem will be successfully resolved.

All You Need to Know About Mice

While there are a wide variety of rodents you can potentially encounter in your home or business, mice are perhaps the most damaging due to their problematic behaviors. Mice are incessant feeders and just one mouse can make up to 200 trips to food sources on a daily basis. Because of their insatiable appetite, the chances of food contamination and disease spread are always high, even with a single invader.

The most common mouse you may likely encounter are house mice. These mice are usually grayish-brownish colored and range between 2 and ½ to 3 and ¾ inches long. Their tails can be nearly as long or longer than their body, between 2 and 3/4ths to 4 inches long. Because of their small size and nimble frame, they can easily sneak their way indoors through gaps and holes the size of a dime. 

What’s most concerning about house mice is their ability to reproduce quickly. A female house mouse can give birth to about 6 baby mice every 3 weeks and can produce 35 per year. Without intervention, their population can get out of control in a hurry. They are also not very discreet and will almost certainly tip you off to their presence because of their disturbing behavior.

Some warning signs that you have a mouse infestation include:

  • Fecal droppings
  • Burrows and trails
  • Runways
  • Gnaw/chew marks
  • Dead rodent bodies
  • Foul odors
  • Squeaks and other clawing noises (particularly late at night)
  • Urine Stains (can be identified via black light since it glows)

If you noticed any of these signs, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our team of mice control experts will respond quickly to assess the situation and develop an effective control plan personalized to your unique property.
