Mice Damage to Homes & Lawns
House mice in the Greater Austin, Texas area are commonly infiltrating homes and businesses. They often creep into homes or businesses in search of food, water, and favorable living conditions. House mice avoid human interaction in most cases, however, they adapt very easily to the lifestyle of indoor living. The biggest concerns house mice pose are two fold. 1) They contribute to millions of dollars a year in damages they inflict on structures and utility lines as well as the food they contaminate and 2) the potential health risk they pose by spreading the bacteria and germs.
Signs of a Mouse Infestation
House mice multiply quickly. In little time your Austin, Texas home or business can quickly be infested by the little rodents. Dealing with them as soon as possible is optimal. Here are a few red flags you have house mice:
– Darting rodent movement. House mice usually establish specific traveling patterns when coming out of their hiding places, generally hugging the walls to offer more protection. With their incredible speeds, you can catch glimpses of them in your peripherals.
– Damaged food packets with teeth marks. To get to the food, they will literally chew their way through packages of food. Paper, cardboard and flimsy plastic wrap are no match for their teeth, and you often find crumbs or remains of leftover food along with packaging material in the general area. The packages will distinctly show teeth marks.
– Hear mouse scratching and running. The house mice in the walls can be heard scratching sounds and the pitter-patter of their footsteps. Along with the walls, you might possibly hear their activities in the ceilings. Focus on the concentrated sound areas, which are most likely where they are nesting.
– Nesting sites. When mice give birth, they do so where they constructed their nests. If you pay attention to the debris or peculiar insulation that looks kicked away from areas, which is more than likely the area where they built their nests.
– Mice droppings & waste. Mice have no problem dropping their business wherever they happen to be. You can often find fecal matter and urine spots around the areas where they traverse, forage for food, or look to pilfer nesting materials. Finding their little droppings is a confirmation that they exist in your home or business.
