Frequently Asked Questions About Mice

How can I detect a mouse infestation?

A mouse infestation can be detected by the presence of:

  • Live or dead rodents
  • Gnawing sounds
  • Droppings
  • Damage to food or food packaging
  • Rodent odors

What impact do mice have?

Historically, rodents have been the cause of many severe outbreaks of diseases. Because of modern sanitation, antibiotics, and rodent pest management programs, rodents aren’t a threat as they once were, but they still carry harmful diseases. 

Mice are associated with several diseases and are medically important pests. Their droppings can contaminate food, and their gnawing habits create unsightly damage. They are not only a nuisance, but larger infestations may also create unpleasant rodent odors. If you suspect you have a mice infestation, it’s important to contact a pest exterminator to create a rodent control plan.

How can I prevent mice in the future?

Rodent exclusion and sanitation are effective rodent control measures. Mice can fit through a hole the size of a dime or larger. Mice have a flexible rib cage, so if they can get their head through an opening then they will be able to get the whole body into the home or business. 

Exclusion involves elimination of dead spaces, cracks and crevices, and other openings so mice will not be able to enter the home. A pest exterminator will be able to identify these areas and fill those open spaces.

Sanitation involves eliminating food sources such as poorly stored or spilled food, pet food, and birdseed. Rodent-proof storage containers are effective. Harborage can be reduced by eliminating clutter in attics, closets, and garages. Our team of pest control specialists at High Country Pest Control in Colorado Springs can also help identify areas around your home that might be attracting mice, and help you come up with a solution to keep them away.
