Your Nevada pest control specialists at Flatliners Pest Control can help you get rid of mice in and around your house and help ensure their nests are exterminated. If you spot one mouse in your home, this is a sign that more are probably lurking where you can’t see. If you start to see these rodents scurrying along your floor or hear noises in the wall at night, it’s essential that you call a mice exterminator to make sure the problem doesn’t persist.
What Kind Of Mice Are You Living With?
Mice are incredibly resilient because of their size. Most mice are agile enough to fit through a hole smaller than a nickel, can jump more than a foot and a half into the air, and can even scurry up the sides of walls, similar to a squirrel. Some of the most common species of mice found in our Nevada homes are:
- House Mouse
- Long-tailed Pocket Mouse
- Desert Pocket Mouse
- Spiny Pocket Mouse
- Little Pocket Mouse
- Great Basin Pocket Mouse
- Dark Kangaroo Mouse
- Southern Grasshopper Mouse
- Deer Mice
- Cactus Deermouse
- Canyon Deermouse
- Brush Deermouse
- North American Deermouse
- Pinyon Deermouse
Take Away What Mice Love & Need
Because of the Nevada heat, mice’s most significant resource requirement is water and warmth on clear cold winter nights. One way to avoid attracting mice into your home is to curtail feeding your pets outside so as not to draw the mouse with any leftover food and water sources.
How Do They Get In?
Mice are excellent finders of holes under a home’s foundation and can wreak havoc on your property. They can also leave behind foul odors from rotting food, urine, and feces, that can become hazardous to the health of both the people and pets of the residence.
Mice Are Known To Be Arsonists
Mice will cause damage to drywall and insulation as they drill themselves into your home to attempt to make their nest. Mice have even caused house fires after chewing through homes wiring systems. In our desert environment, the risk of fire damage is too high to ignore.
