Huntsville's Guide To House Mouse Control And Prevention

Mice are designed to survive. They have a set of habits and behaviors that ensure their survival in the wild. Mice breed quickly and can run, swim, and climb well. This allows them to survive well in the wild and to resist the actions of predators. In urban environments, however, mice can use these habits and behaviors to rapidly expand their populations. As the mouse infestation grows, they seek new sources of food, water, and shelter. Huntsville homes are highly attractive to mice. They offer plenty of shelter, and often also plenty of food and water. Mice come, like what they see, and then decide to stay. It's great for the mice, but not so great for you.

If mice have decided to try to share your home, EnviroGuard can help you with mouse control. Call us today for any form of pest control in Huntsville.

Habits And Behaviors Of Common House Mice

Here are some common habits and behaviors of common house mice that may come and visit you:

  • Mice can fit through very small openings, some as small as a dime.
  • Mice are communal. They prefer to live in large families.
  • Mice are nocturnal, meaning that they prefer to come out at night.
  • Mice are very wary and will readily avoid danger when they detect it.
  • Mice can easily survive on the food they find in your home. 
  • Mice can go long periods without water.

These are some of the habits and behaviors of mice. If you have problems with mice, EnviroGuard knows how to get rid of mice at your Huntsville home. Contact us today for help.

Why Mice In Your House Can Be So Problematic

Mice are highly communal, and once an infestation starts, it can grow rapidly. Mice can cause many problems in your home. Firstly, they are a health hazard, as they can potentially spread numerous pathogens. Secondly, they can cause property damage by gnawing on wood, insulation, drywall, and other materials.

The best way to get rid of mice is to get professional help. The seasoned professionals at EnviroGuard have over 40 years of combined experience, and we know how to handle mice. Drop us a line today.

It Can Be Difficult To Get Rid Of Mice On Your Own

DIY pest control methods generally rely on trying to figure out where mice are exploring and treating them there. Unfortunately, though mice live in groups, they often explore as individuals. You might get some of them, but not all of them, and mice can quickly replenish their numbers. Also, without knowing what attracted mice to your house in the first place, so that you can focus on mouse prevention, you will likely encounter mice in your home again at a future date.
