Should I Be Worried About Mice Inside My Reno Home?

Mice have everything they need to survive. They are fast and nimble, able to squeeze through small spaces, wary, and can survive in a wide variety of environments. They are always on the hunt for food, water, and shelter, which is why your house may look so attractive to mice. Your home offers them everything they want, and they know a good deal when they see it. Mice are common house pests in Reno homes, and that is cause for concern. Mice are known disease carriers and notorious for damaging homes, especially in places that are hard to reach. Rodent-related damage is thought to be the cause of over 20 percent of all undetermined house fires. 

Mice can damage your home and may potentially bring diseases with them. If you have a mouse infestation, call Celtic Pest Control today and let us be your best option for pest control in Reno. We know how to get rid of mouse infestations. 

How To Identify A Mouse Infestation In Your Home

With so much at stake for you and your house, here are some tips for identifying a potential mouse infestation in your Reno home:

  • Holes in food containers: Mice chew small holes in food containers to get at their meal. If you see small holes in stored food containers, or loose food sitting on shelves, this is a good sign that mice may have infested your house.
  • Mice droppings: Mice tend to leave droppings near where they eat and travel. Mouse droppings look somewhat like small, dark grains of rice. If you see mouse droppings in your home, chances are high that you have mice in your house.
  • Chew marks: Mice tend to chew on walls, furniture, and cabinets. If you spot unexplained holes or chew marks on walls, furniture, or cabinets, there is a chance that mice are causing this damage, especially at night.
  • Mice: Finding a mouse in your house, whether alive or dead, is a definite sign that you have a mouse infestation. If you see a mouse, act quickly; there are others.
  • Tracks: Mice tend to travel through your home using the same routes, which will eventually cause those areas to look soiled. 
  • Scratching sounds: If you hear scratching or squeaking in your walls, especially at night, there is a strong possibility that you have mice in the house.

If you encounter any of these signs in your home, there is a possibility that you may be facing a mouse infestation. When that happens, Celtic Pest Control wants to help you. We are experts in mouse control and know how to get rid of mice.

It's Very Dangerous To Have Mice In Your Home

Having mice in your home is associated with property damage and disease spread.

Mice are notorious for damaging homes. They love to chew on wires, cables, and pipes, especially those behind the walls of your home. Given time, mice can cost thousands of dollars in damage repairs to your house. But this is not the worst threat mice pose.

The biggest risk associated with a mouse infestation is the potential of contracting an illness. Mice, by their very nature, love exploring places like garbage, carcasses, and sewers, bringing them into contact with things like salmonella, E. coli, and campylobacter. Later, when they enter your home, they can spread them by simply walking across your counters, dinnerware, food stores, and cabinets, placing you at risk of contracting them later. 

You do not want to worry about damage and diseases in your home. Celtic Pest Control thinks that all you need to worry about is calling us. We can take care of the mice.

How And Why Mice Find Their Way Into Your Home

Mice generally enter through gaps in your house. A mouse is capable of squeezing through spaces as small as a dime. Mice are naturally curious and will explore everything in their area. Once a mouse enters your home and finds food, it will likely stay. Unfortunately, once mice decide to occupy a space, they immediately start breeding.

Mice can find many ways to sneak into your house, but you only need one way to get them out. Celtic Pest Control is the way to keep mice away. Call us today. Let us help you with mice.
