The house mouse, one of the most detrimental pests in the United States, is second only to humans as the most common mammal in cities across the nation. House mice are notorious nibblers who climb, jump, and swim in order to get to their favorite foods, which are often found in houses, farms, open fields, and commercial buildings. They are curious and fearless creatures that will chew through walls, electrical cables, and storage containers in order to get what they want.

Mouse Control: Exclusion & Habitat Modification
Rodent exclusion is the best way to prevent mice from entering your home, but many homeowners do not protect their home until they have experienced a nuisance animal. After rodent removal, it is essential to repair any entry points on your home.
Habitat Modification to Prevent Mice
Remove trees or branches close to your roof and keep your property clear of debris can help to keep your property rodent free. Rodents love clutter and will use debris for nesting material.
