Mice and Rat Control Treatments
If left uncontrolled in your Tennessee home, mice and other rodents can wreak havoc on your structure. They may even increase the risk of a house fire. Mice also pose a hazard to your health through the spread of disease. For these reasons, controlling the mouse population in and around your home is vital to keep you, your family, and your home safe.
At U.S. Pest, we focus on a thorough inspection of your home from top to bottom and inside and out. This includes signs of mouse activity such as actual mouse sightings, droppings, rub marks, chew marks, entry points, and nests.
Interior Mice and Rat Inspections
With a flashlight in hand, our pest professionals will check various places throughout your home that are common areas for mice. These parts of your home will include—but aren’t limited to:
- Under furniture
- Inside furniture
- Under appliances
- Pipe chases
- Storage areas
- Crawl spaces
- Inside insulation material
The most common signs of a mouse infestation can include droppings, chewed material, and live mice. We’ll also point out rub marks and possible points of entry for mice to make it into your home.
Exterior inspections focus on looking for mice, their nests, rub marks, and droppings in and around vents, pipe chases, mulch and landscaping, and wood piles. If we see any signs of a mouse infestation on the exterior of your home, we’ll point out conditions that are favorable to mice.
U.S. Pest Mice and Rat Treatment
After completing our thorough inspection—which involves moving items and furniture to look for areas of concern—we will seal up entry points that are a quarter of an inch thick. We will also patch holes around pipe chases, which are common points of mouse activity.
In addition to closing up these points of entry, we may also use baiting, snap traps, and glue traps as a means to kill any mice on your property. These traps are commonly placed near mouse droppings and in areas where the presence of mice is confirmed. Bait stations can be placed around the exterior of your home as a way to keep them out of the structure or minimize their activity. All glue traps and stations will be dated with your U.S. Pest Pro’s initials.
In extreme cases, we may use tracking powder to help determine the main source of your mouse problem. For heavy infestations, we’ll return every other day and slowly taper off service as we get the situation under control.
