Some exterminators in New Hampshire say they're getting more calls for mouse trouble than in previous years, and they think the mild winter and rainy spring played a role.
Jesse Fraser of Critter Control in Merrimack said he's seeing a 30 percent increase in calls. He told the Eagle Tribune squirrels and mice were able to find food easily last winter.
He said a rainy spring also contributed to a big acorn crop.
Exterminators generally get more calls at this time of year as rodents head indoors to escape falling temperatures.
But homeowners are heading out to hardware stores. At Derry Feed & Supply, store owner Bud Evans said one of the most popular items is a bait station, a little plastic enclosure containing cubes of rodenticide.
