Mice In Your Yakima County Home Is A Bigger Problem Than You May Think

Serving Families Throughout Ellensburg

Mice are small, but they can cause big problems in your Yakima County home. Mice can squeeze through very small spaces and can often find their way inside. Once there, they will explore every aspect of your home. If they like what they see, they will immediately establish themselves inside, and once one mouse makes it in, others are sure to follow. Unfortunately, mice can damage furniture, wires, and insulation and contaminate food stores. Just as bad, mice can bring infectious diseases into your home, potentially exposing you and your family to health risks.

If you need pest control in Yakima County, Prosite is the area’s company of choice for safe, effective mouse control treatments to protect your home from damage and your family from serious health risks. Call us today, and let us show you how to deal with mice.

One Mouse Usually Means Many More

Mice are very social pests and prefer to live in large families. Due to their rapid rate of reproduction, small mouse infestations can grow large quickly. Mice are wary by nature and they tend to be nocturnal, meaning that they only tend to come out at night. They also tend to avoid places where there is a lot of activity, primarily hiding out of sight in hard-to-reach areas. Thus, even though there may be a sizable mouse infestation in your home, you may not see more than a single mouse, if even that.

Mouse extermination and prevention are critical once mice move into your home uninvited. The longer these rodents are there, the worse the infestation becomes. Prosite knows how to help, with effective mouse control services that will eliminate the entire infestation. Drop us a line today to discover more.

The Damage And Dangers Mice Can Create Around Your Home

Mice explore everything, and once inside your home, they will investigate it from end to end. Mice have sharp, hard teeth, and they use these to chew through things so that they can explore better and keep their constantly-growing teeth filed down. If they find food, they will chew through the containers to get at what is inside. They also damage walls and furniture and are known to chew on wires and cables behind walls, leading to expensive repairs or fire risks. 

Mice are known disease carriers. Mice will explore everything in their environment, and they aren’t afraid to explore things like sewers, garbage piles, and even animal carcasses. They can get exposed to disease-causing agents like salmonella, giardia, and E. coli. They can track these pathogens into your house when they come inside, and you can get exposed. Don’t risk your family’s health; if you see mice, call Prosite. We know mouse control, and we can help.

Trying To Get Rid Of Mice On Your Own

DIY pest control is generally not effective when it comes to mice. Mouse infestations can be large, but mice tend to explore on their own. You might catch a few of the mice with DIY methods, but you won’t get all of them, and the infestation can persist. Mice also tend to build their nests behind walls, in attics, and other hard-to-reach places, making direct treatment challenging even if you can find them. In addition, mice can squeeze through spaces as small as a dime, which means they may have access to your home in ways you might not know about, making it all the more difficult to manage an infestation.

Mouse prevention isn’t always easy, and should be left to the professionals to guarantee the results you want. Prosite knows how to get rid of pests, and we can help you. Get in touch today to discuss our treatment and prevention approaches.
