How To Easily Get Rid Of Mice Inside Your Virginia Beach Residence

October 30, 2022

As one of the best Virginia Beach pest control companies, we are often asked by homeowners how to get rid of rodents inside their homes for good. Is it hard? Is it a battle that can’t be won? The experts at Hawk Mosquito & Pest can show you how to say goodbye to the mice you have and keep any from coming back. First, let’s take a closer look at this type of rodent and why you don’t want it around.

Is Seeing A Mouse In My Virginia Beach Home A Bad Sign?

Unfortunately, yes, it is a bad sign if you see a mouse, the most common Virginia Beach rodent, in your home. Where there is one, there will surely be more, especially if they are reproducing females. Oftentimes, seeing a mouse out and about in your house means they’re looking for food, water, or even nesting material to make their quarters more comfortable. They’re very rude house guests, and we can help usher them out.

Are House Mice Able To Make You Sick?

House mice can make you and your family sick, and that’s why you need our effective rodent control services in Virginia Beach. Through their feces, urine, saliva, or direct contact with a human or pet, mice can spread over 35 diseases, such as

  • Plague
  • Salmonellosis
  • Tularemia
  • Hantavirus
  • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis

Mice can also trigger allergies and have been known to drop fleas, mites, or ticks that can bite people or pets and make them sick.

Why Mouse Traps Are Unreliable

Have you ever tried to catch a mouse with a mouse trap? Baiting it with a little cheese or peanut butter can be tricky. Placing it where you think the mouse will find it is also tricky, as you just don’t know if it’s the right place or not. Much of the time, a smart mouse (they all seem to be very smart!) takes the bait and doesn’t set off the trap. Mice can also carry the entire trap away without setting it off.

You also run the risk of stepping on the trap accidentally and learning a painful lesson. If you have children in the house, the risk of them finding it and setting it off is too great.

We have better solutions.

How Do I Get Rid Of Mice In My Virginia Beach Home For Good?

If you have mice in your home, the best way to get rid of them for good is to call us. Our experts will come and do an assessment. We will start the process of finding and hosting your “guests” from your property. We utilize a unique process that includes baiting, trapping, cleaning, and preventing new rodents from finding their way in.

Two important things to remember to keep mice away from your house:

  1. Keep the inside and outside of your home clean and free from dropped food and trash build-up. They’re hungry and like what you leave behind after each meal.
  2. Seal, caulk, and repair possible entry points. Did you know mice can fit through a hole the size of a quarter? Take time to do a careful walk-around of your home, inside and out. Fix what you can, but if you find the damage is too severe, give us a call, and we can help.

Don’t ever worry about a rodent infestation getting out of hand. Hawk Mosquito & Pest’s effective rodent control will make sure your home remains rodent-free now and for years to come.
