We do not think of mice that often. Not even as a pest problem. We might think of rats when we worry about rodents in our homes but not focus on mice. Mice have a better reputation than rats. They are tiny and they are cute in cartoons, and they don’t even have a threatening name. What is scary about the word mice? Not much. So, it is to be forgiven if we do not consider them in our rodent control plans when we start boarding up for the winter. So what do mice do? Do they get us sick, or are they the fruit flies of winter; annoying but unavoidable?. There are, of course, plenty of differences between mice and fruit flies, the least of which is the fact that, unlike fruit flies, mice can be controlled in your home and should be avoided. They might not be as intimidating looking, but they can still be a pest that cause damage and are a health concern, so looking into mice removal in Burlington is absolutely something you should do as winter comes crawling closer and so do the rodents seeking shelter.
The last thing you want this season is to pull out a bag of flour to make a pie and find that a tiny sharp toothed little beast has left little rips in the bag. A ripped bag can also be accompanied by some icky, germ-laden droppings. Or even worse, what if you are just in bed minding your own business and as you you get up to go get a drink of water, you see one of those little creatures scurry across the kitchen floor? Not a fun way to be surprised in the middle of the night.
The “ick” factor and the surprise factor are unpleasant, but there is also the health factor to think about when considering looking into mice removal in Burlington. Plenty of the diseases that can be carried by rats can also be carried by mice, so you can be exposed to diseases like Lyme disease, Salmonella, Rat bite fever (yes, even from mice), Hanta virus, Typhus and, believe it or not, even the plague. These little creatures are not sanitary and can be a big problem if left unchecked. So at the first sign of mice droppings or gnaw marks, look into a company that can help with mice removal in Burlington. You do not want to add any of these diseases to cold and flu season. It is tough enough already to keep an entire family healthy.
You do not have to surrender your home to mice. There are steps to take all by yourself to make sure you can control them. You should look into traps for around areas where they can come into the home. Also, look into sealing cracks in walls and doors to keep those critters out. Never hesitate to call a professional to see where you stand as far as mice problems go. A professional like Beacon Pest Control can help you by showing where you are vulnerable as far as mice and other rodents are concerned, and eliminating access points.
