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.

Best Bat Removal
Brandon was out to please and make out lives easier with out bat situation. Above and beyond of the call of duty and got the job done. Thank you!
BAT POOP CLEAN-UP AND PREVENTION! Bat guano removed from gables. No bats found in attic, so put new screens on all gable vents, as one screen was close to breaking and then bats may have gotten in! Great work in Tulsa
Squirrels and chipmunks were in our attic. So we called Critter Control to do an inspection. Their representative climbed all over our very steep roof and found several places where squirrels had entered our attic.
Upon inspection of the attic, evidence of bats was also found. The Critter Control team came on time to completely caulk the entire perimeter of the house and create an exit strategy for the squirrels and bats.
Because bat droppings
can cause histoplasmosis, this also required total removal and replacement of our attic insulation and sanitizing the space. Not a small job in a 1,300 sq. ft. attic! While Critter Control’s cost was high, our homeowners insurance covered most of it. Everyone representing Critter Control was professional, courteous and timely. I would highly recommend them to anyone who thinks they might have unwelcome guests living in their attic
On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings
Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.
She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

We noticed droppings on our brand new deck - we were given their number from our contractor. They came the next day. Brian looked at it and said - yeah, bats!! He then checked every area in our attic and he explained exactly what needed to be done.
He found evidence of a mice infestation, provided a referral and they are helping us as well. Great service, very informative, very professional! We are very satisfied and would recommend them to anyone who has any issues with any critters!
