Mice Control Treatment
Mice Control Treatment – Mice if left uncontrolled can wreak havoc on the structure of the home, the health of the occupants as well as cause house fires. In addition, it is very important to control mice populations in and around your home to keep diseases and damage from occurring.
How U.S. Pest inspects for Mice:
First of all, an interior and exterior inspection is key in locating mice activity and choosing the best treatment method. Furthermore, the activity level can be from one house mouse that ran across the living room floor to seeing chew marks on your cereal boxes in the morning. As a result, there are tell tale signs of the level of infestation so we go to great lengths during our inspections to look for droppings, rub marks, chew marks, entry points and even nests.
Interior Inspections for Mice:
Due to being fully prepared at all times, your U.S. Pest Pro will utilize a flashlight and their experience to do a thorough inspection. Also, the interior inspection will consist of looking in various places for activity. Therefore, sometimes it is obvious and sometimes we have to look a little deeper.

What we do to treat for mice
We will do a thorough inspection including moving items and furniture to look for areas of concern. Most noteworthy, the treatment process after the inspection includes sealing up entry points ¼ inch thick, patching holes around pipe chases, securing areas around
Don’t be afraid to move things to be able to see and get to potential critical areas.
Exclusion can be a very handy tool in rodent control especially pipe chases and ac unit in crawl
Baiting, snap traps, and glue traps are effective after exclusion
Exterior bait stations are useful in keeping rodents out of the structure or minimizing their activity
Place traps and bait stations in areas of activity. Leave droppings in the garage and place bait stations in that area.
For heavy infestations we will initially come out every other day and slowly step services back until we have situation under control.
For extreme cases we may use tracking powder sparingly
Glue traps and stations will be dated and initialed
