Serving Families Throughout Ellensburg
Mouse outside

Would you ever hold a mouse? Many people would, as long as they are clean and friendly. Sadly, most mice that live here in Kittitas are neither clean nor friendly. This tends to lead to some serious problems. Why? Because mice like to live inside human dwellings, even when we don’t want them to.

To help you control the different types of mice looking to invade your Kittitas County home, here are some things to consider today. Call our team at Prosite to learn more about our mouse removal offerings or to make an appointment for your home and property. Let us deal with these pests for you and offer some long-term solutions to keep future invaders at bay.

Signs Of A Mouse Infestation: How To Spot Them Early

It is unlikely that you will wake up one day and find dozens of mice crawling around inside your home. These small rodents do their best to stay out of sight and will only come out into living areas at night or when they feel it is safe to do so.

Keeping this in mind, you should start to notice signs of mice long before actually seeing these pests indoors. These signs include fecal droppings, urine stains or pillars, gnaw marks, holes, and other forms of property damage. We highly recommend checking your attic, basement, and other secluded areas indoors for nests and these signs. For help identifying mice, call our team and ask about our detailed inspection services. 

Identifying Common Entry Points Of Mice

Mice like to invade homes. The question is, are they able to get into yours? This all depends. Is your home’s exterior properly sealed? Do you keep your doors and windows shut? Does your chimney have a rodent-proof cap? These are all important things.

Because mice are small, they do not need a large space to squeeze indoors. In fact, all these furry rodents need is a gap the width of a nickel. They find openings like this in exterior foundations, around windows and doors, and higher up on the exterior of homes. Let’s take some time now to talk about effective prevention strategies and professional options you have to combat mice locally. 

Effective Mice Prevention Strategies

You do not have to live with an active mouse infestation. If these pests have not yet invaded your home, here are some prevention strategies to keep them outdoors.

  • Clean your home regularly and address food messes and drink spills when they occur.
  • Make sure all of your doors and windows are in good working condition and properly sealed.
  • Repair damage and fill in gaps and cracks around your home’s exterior.
  • Store leftovers inside air-tight containers.
  • Make sure your trash cans have rodent-proof lids.
