Orlando Mouse Control

House Mice   are common pest throughout the county.  In Orlando, Florida, most mouse calls our pest control company takes actually turn out to be rat problems.   The difference in appearance between juvenile rats and full grown house mice very subtle.
Keys to solving problems with mice
Mouse infestation often starts in the garage and spreads into the home.
  • 1). Find the entry points  Carefully inspect the eave of the home, particularly how its ventilated on its underside and where the eave forms corners with the rooftop. These locations are frequently used by rats and mice to get into a home.

  • 2). Seal the opening with steel or other non-chewable material  Seal the home immediately. Stoping the rodents from gettting in and out makes it much easier to trap them. When the mice and rats cannot leave to get food outside, they be much more driven to the trap's bait.

  • 3). Trap with the a lot of traps, and make sure you have the right size trap  The more traps the better for catching rats and mice. Most jobs we do are trapped with 12-20 traps. Most rodent problems in Orlando are roof rats, and by far the most effective trap are large snap traps. Mice can be caught with glue traps, but rats generally cannot. If you are unsure of whether the problem is rats or mice, use multiple trap types.
  • Mouse chewing damage   to sensitive attic and kitchen structures is the primary reason to control the situation as fast as possible.  Mice chew and gnaw constantly and part of their rodent behavior..  Mice in the attic can destroy electric wires, air ducts, and plumbing.  The threat to electrical wires is a serious fire-hazzard, and many unexplained fires are attributed to rodents.

    Orlando Mouse Control
    Mice thrive in Central Florida's warm climate and multiple lakes. The threat of rodent infestation is present throughout most of the country from mice and squirrels. But warmer climate cities like Orlando, Florida have the added animal threat: the roof rat. This animal causes problems in Orlando that you never see in cold climates like Chicago.

    Animal Control vs Pest Control
    When homeowners hear noises in the attic or see rodent evidence in the home, many people first turn to their bug pest control service for help. In general the help provided by bug companies for rodents is limited to poisoning and laying traps. Most bug pest control companies do not go into the attic or on to the roof, making any work they do superficial at best.

    Structual Mouse and Rodent Control
    If you have a rodent problem, you need to have someone who can find the entry points that are allowing the animals to get in. Bug companies generally don't do this. Permanent mouse control is what Wildlife Patrol specializes in. If you don't hire us, you need to at least find someone to address to the problem structurally.

    Lasting mouse solution
    Rat and mouse control work can be expensive or inexpensive depending on the condition of the home. The cost of Olando mouse control is a one time cost, where once the home is properly taken care of, not only will the current problem be quickly resolved, we can rodent proof the building to ensure no recurrance.
