Why are mice and other rodents dangerous?

While mice may look kind of cute and cuddly, they can cause major problems for Rutland home owners, and in some cases can even be quite dangerous. The most serious issues presented by mice and other rodents are:

  • Fire hazard from chewing through electrical wires.

  • Structural damage to home.

  • Contaminating food and other surfaces.

  • Can spread sicknesses and disease including Salmonella, Hantavirus and more. 

  • Often introduce fleas, ticks and other pests into your home.

 

Signs of Mice in Your Rutland Home

Mice and rats are very rapid reproducers, and can quickly infest your home before you even realize it. It is important to keep an eye out for signs of rodent activity to be able to treat the problem early before a severe infestation develops. Some of these signs of mice and rodent activity can include:

  • The most obvious sign is mouse droppings. They are about ¼ inch in length and are generally found near the food source. 

  • Another common sign is their nest. Nests are often made from shredded newspaper, cardboard or other paper like substances. 

  • Scratching noises in the wall or ceiling. 

  • Damage from gnawing on wood or other hard surfaces.

 

Mice and Rodent Prevention Tips

As the cool weather arrives this fall, mice and rats begin searching for a shelter that will provide warmth, food and water. Unfortunately, our homes provide the perfect paradise for these unwanted guests. Big Blue Bug Solutions offers a few simple mice prevention tips to help keep your Rutland home free of rodents this fall:

  • Eliminate all clutter from the garage and other storage areas. Also remove newspapers and cardboard as they are common nesting materials. 

  • Do a thorough cleaning of the kitchen to remove any moisture or food sources. 

  • Make sure all food is stored in a sealed container. 

  • Take the trash out regularly and store it in sealed bins.

  • Cover all vents with durable mesh. 

  • Seal any holes or cracks with a caulking. Mice can fit through spaces as small as a dime.
