Looking for tips and information on how to rid your property of mice infestations? Take the time to inspect areas in and around the house especially gardens and yard. These rodents are definitely something that property owners shouldn't have to put up with. Even a single tiny mouse can turn out to be quite a nuisance and when you see one there are often many others lurking around.

Mice can be a destructive presence in one's home - they can inflict a lot of damage over time from food stores, chewed fabrics and damage dry walls as they attempt to invade unaffected areas seeking out food and shelter. To make matters worse, mice are a serious health concern as they are known to carry and spread diseases contaminating food and their surroundings with their foul excrements.

Unfortunately, mice are perhaps the most common types of pests one could encounter in their homes and you've probably been startled by one in many occasions. Their presence tend to peak in colder times as supply of vegetation and insects outside start to dwindle down.

So what can you actually do about your mice problem?

Well it's not really that complicated as people might think - a good way to start dealing with mice infestations in and around your property is to make your home inhospitable to these types of pests. It is as simple as doing things like:

  • Keeping living and dining areas clean and free of trash
  • Promptly removing leftovers and food crumbs
  • Proper sanitation and waste disposal – don’t leave garbage bins lying around for far too long
  • Trim bushes around the yard and outside vegetation mice can use as food sources
  • Caulk cracks and seal holes or gaps on walls where these rodents may enter. Mice can squeeze their way through openings that might seem impossible.

Think you’ve done enough to make your property uninviting to stubborn mice? Now this takes us to next step which is to implement measures to deny rodents any possible access to your property. This is best done with the help of pest extermination and prevention experts. These professionals know what they are doing and while cost may seem significant, there is no substitute when it comes to their "rodent-proofing" expertise.

One can spend a fortune on DIY mice control traps, poison and baiting systems but it's no long term solution to a problem that is bound to reoccur if property owners fail to address the heart of the issue.

Some of the most effective extermination and prevention solutions for mice infestations include the use of high tech radio wave emitters that act as rodent repellers and emit frequencies mice and other small rodents find unpleasant. These devices basically act as repellers

Of course there are also the classic and proven chemical-based mice control solutions like fumigations which are ideal particularly for extensive mice infestations. It's all a matter of weighing one's options. It would be best to consult with an expert who can further recommend the best solutions for keeping your property safe from mice and other types of unwanted pests.

We have an electronic controller and they really work. We have just returned from traveling around Australia and after 4 plus months and 17,000 k's we were dreading coming home in case we had a power failure and it stopped working.

We are pleased to say not one mouse and house still in one piece, it worked like a charm. Pity it didn't do the same for the weeds they were ten feet tall and we poisoned all our lawn before leaving. Spent 4 hours pulling all out by hand. great article. rated up
