Habits And Behaviors Of Common House Mice
Mice are social pests, and prefer to live in family groups. This means that if one mouse takes a liking to your house, other mice will too. Mice also breed quickly, and small infestations can get large fast. Mice are very wary and can detect potential danger from long distances away. They have excellent senses of smell and hearing, and their vision is adapted for seeing movement in dark environments. They are nocturnal and tend to hide during the day. Mice are naturally curious and tend to explore the entirety of their environment. If they make it into your house, rest assured that they will explore it from end to end.

It's Very Dangerous To Have Mice In Your Home
Mice infestations are never good. Mice can damage your home and contaminate your food. Worse, mice can jeopardize your health. The reason for this is that mice are historically associated with spreading diseases. Mice are perfectly happy exploring garbage heaps, sewers, and carcasses and can pick up things like salmonella, leptospira, and hantavirus during their journeys. Once they come into your house, they can bring these things with them and spread them onto your furniture, counters, and food stores. You can suddenly find yourself dealing with mouse-borne diseases without ever seeing or touching a mouse.
You need to be able to keep mice away if you want to avoid mouse-borne diseases. Freedom Pest Control has the knowledge and experience to help you. We know the best ways to get rid of mice and keep them away.
Natural Ways To Keep Mice Away From Your Home
Since mice can potentially cause you a lot of grief, here are some handy tips for minimizing the risk of mouse infestations:
- Seal outside garbage: Mice are highly attracted to open garbage and the food it offers.
- Tidy your yard: Eliminating rubbish heaps, junk piles, and clutter discourages mice.
- Seal your home with caulk: Mice can squeeze through holes as small as a dime. Sealing helps.
- Store food carefully: Easy access to inside food sources will make mice come and stay.
- Clean your house: Crumbs can attract pests of all kinds, and definitely attract mice.
