I Have A Mouse In The House, Now What?


In the past we have discussed the dangers of having a mouse infestation in your home. In fact, you can refer to our previous blog which highlights the dangers of these small but mighty rodents. And while mice may not seem like a worry for you when you don’t have them, many homeowners find themselves in a tough place when they do in fact find a mouse in the house. What do you do? Mice in St. Louis are gearing up for a cold winter just as you are which is why it is important to know what steps to take if you find evidence of a mouse problem.

Step 1: Take a deep breath! Although the sight of a mouse can be alarming, especially when you know just how bad these rodents can be for your home and health, it is important to know that no pest infestation is too much for the St. Louis pest control pros to handle.

Step 2: Call us! At the first sign of a mouse infestation whether you see a live mouse, dead mouse, mouse droppings, or gnaw marks on your belongings, it is important to contact Rottler right away.

Step 3: Sanitize and clean. One thing we know for sure about mice is that they are unsanitary. In order to prevent the spread of bacteria and harmful pathogens it is important to keep the home as sanitized and clean as possible as to avoid illness from mouse contact including their urine and droppings.

Step 4: Sign up for year round pest protection. The best defense against rodent infestations is to have a year round pest control plan that includes inspections, monitoring and preventative treatments that will keep mice and other critters away.
