Protect Your Home by Knowing Signs of Mice

They may seem insignificant if you see one in your garage or find one in a box of Christmas decorations you bring down from the attic. But like we always tell our customers, there’s never just one mouse. And the amount of diseases, parasites, and bacteria rodents spread makes them one of the most harmful household pests we see.

Setting traps year after year might be part of your routine home care list of tasks. What about focusing on keeping mice out to begin with? Rodents have been known for causing electrical malfunctions and even fires by chewing through wiring with their saw-like teeth. If that’s not enough to encourage you to get mice out of your home-fleas, mites, tapeworm and salmonella are just the tip of the iceberg of sicknesses that rodents carry. Protect the health of your home and everyone in it with professional pest solutions.

Know How to Look For Signs of Mice

They’re all a little different. They have different habits, coloring, and food preferences. Before going into battle with any pest, you must know your opponent. Knowledge is power. And to defeat rodents, you will literally need to think like one. That what our experts go through extensive training for. That expertise along with the latest and historically successful tactics and tools is why you hire the pros at Franklin Pest Solutions.

Let’s take a closer look at the top 3 common rodents making their way into Midwest homes. Much like their appearance differs, their habitats and mannerisms also vary. Knowing the identifying markers is the first step to eradicating these disease-carrying pests.

Out of Sight

They’re out of sight most of the time, but they should never be out of mind when it comes to making sure you’re living in a healthy environment. There is no such thing as one mouse. One nest of mice has at least 5 members and one female mouse can have up to 10 litters a year! Just how much damage can a nest of mice like that cause? Check out the first episode in this new series called ‘Out of Sight‘ showcasing the tracks these harmful pests leave behind as they expose your home to the filth they carry.
