There are many different species of mice including the house, field, and deer mouse, hamster, and muskrat. They’ve lived alongside humans for centuries. Some are now domesticated, but wild species can carry disease.
How to Get Rid of The Common House Mouse
The house mouse is a disease carrying, territorial pest. A colony has the dominant male, female, and their offspring. They emit a high-pitched squeal when communicating and scared. Their diet varies based on scavenging.
Prevention is the best method to keep rodents out of a house. Ensure all openings to the outside are sealed with proper materials. Keep counters clean, food properly stored, trash sealed, and all of it away from the ground.
Termites can devastate a home. They feed on the products used in construction. Signs of damage are hollowed wood, mud tunnels at the foundation, piles of wings or swarms, blistered paint, and minimal water damage on walls.
The first step in controlling bedbugs is finding their hideout. Once located, a plan of action can be enacted. High heat, inescticides, and powders are all good at eliminating bedbugs. Consult a pest control expert for help.
