A family could hear pitter patter of scratchy little feet running marathons in the attic. With children in the home was causing great anxiety and fear. Especially because where there are mice rats are sure to follow.
A family of four were preparing to enjoy an evening of watching movies. The children were playing on the floor in front of the television while Mom set up the snack table. What’s a movie without popcorn, candy and pop, right. Movie starts and everyone snuggles in to enjoy the flick. The daughter kept seeing something flying across the floor but not curious enough to be alarmed. At least not until the mouse ran up the blanket on the vacant sofa. Then all heck broke loose with a piercing scream and the dad started chasing the pest. Chaos induced by one little rodent that created something even bigger…an infestation. Seeing the mouse confirmed what was heard in the attic. The scratching sounds and the sound of running. Dad had no doubt there were more up in the attic enjoying the new digs. The key now was to locate where the infestation was in the home. The one thing that crossed the mom’s mind was the great fear of the children getting bit, eating bacteria infested food or airborne germs attacking the family. There are numerous diseases that are transmitted indirectly by rodents when a flea or tick bites an infected rodent and then turns around to bite a human. Alright now. The homeowner did not want to have to deal with this yucky problem. Made up his mind to call in a Pest Exterminator to take care of the Mice Infestation.
Mice love to gain entry into an attic because It’s warm, safe and dry. The nasty little pests are not cute at all. There is so much damage that can be done. Mice like to build beds in the insulation. Attics are also a place where the mice leave behind it’s urine and feces. Diseases from these germ bag pests can be spread very quickly. Attics are an excellent spot storing food. Insulation gives a great site for tunneling, access to the outside if the need to escape. Listen carefully when everyone goes to bed and noises can be heard up in the attic at night and even in the walls. The rodents like to run up and down on the drywall which makes it sound louder. Attics are for the most part human free. So what better place to run, play, eat and leave a nasty mess.
Mice in the attic causes damages by gnawing on electrical wires, disease transmission, airborne germs and horrible funky smells. The pests can will crawl down from the attic into the house and kitchen. No space in the home is exempt from the mice that chew on a variety of things. One of the best places to find the mice is in the food pantry.
Mice gain entry into homes through crevices, cracks, holes in foundations, floors and walls. Homeowners usually have less than a clue that there are several openings giving access to the unwanted guests. Due to a mouse’s body shape, it can squeeze through holes the size of a dime. The mice are tiny and can get into the house through gaps in windows or ceilings. Through sewer lines, unsealed or improperly sealed drain pipes. Mice may also enter the home through gaps in ceilings and windows. Mice have no problem in coming through drain pipes that aren’t sealed and via sewer lines. It’s not uncommon that the pests can enter homes through bathtub drains and sinks.
A mouse is in the house and running amok in the attic requiring Mice Infestation pest control and a call for help was made to AMPM Exterminators to come and get rid of this gigantic mess. The pest control professional answered the call and the owner was elated to get a same day service. Once the professional terminator arrived the treatment process begun. An investigation of the perimeter of the house was priority. Because the main worry is not only what is inside the house. The important step is to prevent any more mice to get into the residence. A search was on to look for holes, cracks and any openings that needed to be sealed off. Of course this would keep the varmints out. Doors and windows were checked to make sure they closed properly and no gaps. The kitchen and pantry were inspected thoroughly and prevention instructions were given for after treatment. Such as to make sure to store foods in glass or metal containers with tight lids. Definitely dispose of all food waste as soon as possible in tightly covered garbage cans. Common sense daily cleaning to keep the mice away. The attic was of the most interest and every nook and cranny was checked for both live and dead mice. Baits put down. Lastly the owner was advised to keep the tree branches cut back from the roof. Because this was the main access to the house and into the attic. Contacting AMPM Exterminators was the best move the owner made all day. The experienced, professional and friendly got the job done.
