Problems & Dangers With Mice
What Problems Do Mice Cause When They Get Inside Homes?
When mice get into homes, they can create a wide range of mice problems, from contaminating your home to damaging your food. Mice will end up in the kitchen, looking for food, and will contaminate foods in the cupboards, kitchen surfaces and pantries by leaving significant amounts of droppings and urine. Some people get Salmonella poisoning, simply from mice crawling around on the counters or furniture, surfaces that we touch every day.
Not only do mice contaminate areas, mice can also cause significant damage to things like electrical wiring and other materials within the attics and walls of your home. They can damage insulation in the attic and can leave a mess of droppings to be cleaned up. It is important to take the proper precautions when dealing with mouse excrement and it is best to contact a Critter Control office in your area for services on repairing mouse damage and decontaminating areas of your home.
How to Get Rid of Mouse Infestation in Home and Dead Mice in Attics and Basements: Dead Mice Removal
Typical locations for mice with homes are attics and basements. The common process for getting rid of mice in these areas of the home starts with inspection. Critter Control will identify the source of entry for the mice and harborage areas where damage from the mouse infestation is taking place. We inspect both the interior and exterior of homes in a thorough manner, in order to identify all points of entry.
Once we have identified all points of mouse entry, Critter Control will implement a mouse trapping and baiting program to quickly reduce the population of mice in the infestation. When the mice have been trapped, they will be removed from the home through a safe dead mice removal process. Then, Critter Control will seal all entry points to prevent any re-entry of mice.
After all entry points have been sealed and the mice have been removed from the home, Critter Control will use rodenticides (if allowed by the state) around the exterior of the home, in order to reduce the mouse infestation pressure on the house. Cleaning up mouse damage and excrement in basements and attics is also an important step of the process and should be carried out by a mouse professional.

It has been very effective at reducing the number of mice, lizard, and snake sightings. During one visit Edgar removed a rattlesnake he came across. We may see a snake maybe two to three times during the spring and summer months, but it has been far less than before.
Serivces: Wildlife & Rodent Control in San Diego
Full service. Excellent job of extracting raccoon, cleaning all animal waste, sanitizing, and spraying anti-parasitic substance. They closed all potential ports of entry, though the work did not match the vinyl, and it looks kind of tacky. They added blown insulation, which added a lot to the cost. They provide a one year warranty against animal intrusion, with an option to extend the warranty at the end of each one- year period. They were willing to work with me one the price. I will probably extend my warranty, and will definitely use them it the future.
I was really impressed by these guys. Got a call within a few hours of making an inquiry. Had a rep out to inspect the situation by the end of the week, and when they laid out the timeline they kept if not exceeded listed times.
Rob, Travis, and Jim were all professional, polite, and courteous and after months of hearing squirrels in my ceiling they are gone and the repair to my flashing looks excellent. Can't recommend these guys enough.
Jeff was incredibly professional and helpful. I'll use them again and would recommend them to anyone.
Critter Control did a great job of evaluating our house for sites of entry after we found bats and a squirrel in our attic. They completed their work promptly and professionally.
We heard some noise from the corner of our house. Concerned that it could be inside we called for an inspection. Jessy arrived as scheduled and conducted a complete inspection of our home. Based on a recording we made he determined we had a tree frog on our roof. I was pleased that we didn’t have any rodent in our house. And his inspection could a few spots I can tighten up around my house. I am very happy with the outcome.
We have a vacation home in Western Mass
and haven’t been there much during the pandemic as we live and work in Atlanta, GA. On our most recent visit we noticed that we had some rodent intrusion as well as some un-welcomed wildlife who decided to make our vacation home their home.
We contacted Critter Control and Mr. Cahoon was quick to set up an appointment as we wouldn’t be in town very long. He came out and assessed our issues. He informed us of our options to both eradicate and control future intrusions. Keeping in mind that wildlife is wildlife! He quickly got to work eradicating the rodents and wildlife from our home and addressing the intrusion issues. We feel much better leaving our vacation home for periods at a time knowing that Mr. Cahoon and Critter Control did their job and did it right! Thanks again!
We bought an old cabin last spring , it was used for years as a summer vacation cabin, therefore maintenance wasn’t a priority. After our project to remodel started, we found evidence of mice droppings
We immediately called Critter Control and they came and gave us a reasonable estimate to remove all remnants and insulation. They sanitized and replaced with new insulation and sealing up points of entry .
Seeing their professional work made us feel confident and secure that the problem was solved ! Everyone we worked with continued to show professional and respectful work. Highly recommend this company! We continue to use critter control monthly to be sure we are mice and bug free!
