We Respond Like EVERY Call Is An Emergency

Get Ready For Record Level of Mice Infestations

Posted on September 13th, 2013 by Knockout Pest Control

We have had a perfect summer. Cool temperatures and just the right amount of rain. It has been as perfect for mice as it has been for us—but winter is coming. The rodent population outdoors is now booming—and every last one of them is going to be looking for a warm home come fall. Could your house be their target?

wall-crack-pest-entryNearly 21 million U.S. homes suffer a rodent infestation every year. Your home offers food, warmth and shelter for nesting mice. When they get in your house, they can bring diseases and other pests like fleas and worms. Breathing particles of fecal matter can cause serious allergic reactions and the various bacteria they harbor and spread is legendary. They also cause significant property damage as they chew through walls and wiring and destroy insulation. Rodents are responsible for up to 25% of house fires every year.

Getting in your house is easy for a mouse. They can squeeze into a hole as big around as a pencil—and they can chew through many materials to create bigger openings if need be. It takes a practiced eye to see all the vulnerabilities in your home—including the hard to see entrances from trees into your attic.

And once they are in and comfortable, they reproduce fast. The average female produces a litter of 6 pups almost every month—up to ten litters a year. A half dozen mice in September can become a hundred by the holidays unless you have owls and hawks in your basement eating them up.

Prevention is the best solution. Take the time while it is mild and sunny to have a Knockout Pest Control inspector take a quick look around. In a matter of an hour or less, you can close your home to a mouse infestation and save a fortune in mouse abatement treatments later.
