Spotting a mouse in your home can be your worst nightmare or a cute – but unsettling – distraction. The bottom line is, if mice have moved in you do not want them to stick around. Mice are horrible house guests. They bring more than inconvenience. Mice are destructive and like most rodents, they carry and spread disease.

“Our technician is very helpful and knowledgeable. Another service came to our door last week, and we were happy to tell them we have been with Moyer Pest Control for 15 years and we would not think of switching.”
Mice can get into your home through the smallest of spaces, even as small as a quarter of an inch. After they’re inside, they’ll keep gnawing their way through your walls and throughout your home to settle in and build their nests.
Mice will also chew their way into your food. From boxes of mac and cheese to bags of rice and anything in between.
Mice carry diseases that can spread to humans and pets alike, including:
- Salmonellosis (aka Salmonella)
These diseases can also be shared by fleas and ticks who come into contact with the mice.
How can you tell if you have a mice infestation?
You’ll see and hear these telltale signs:
- Food packages and containers that look like they’ve been chewed open
- Mouse droppings (they look like dark brown grains of rice)
- Scratching and movement in your walls, especially at night (mice are nocturnal)
- Areas of your home like drywall or wood trim that look like they’ve been chewed
Mice usually enter your home to seek shelter, warmth and food. Once there, they’ll continue to do damage to your home and contaminate your food. Because mice multiply so quickly, you can have a mouse infestation before you know it.
Protect your home and your health by removing the mice in your home as fast as possible.
Pitfalls of DIY for Mice
You can try to rid your home of mice on your own using mouse traps or poison bait stations. Each option brings its own challenges.
- Snap Traps can be downright dangerous if you or your pets accidentally encounter one of them and set it off.
- Glue Traps are not for the squeamish on the chance you placed it properly and it successfully caught a mouse.
- Live Traps may catch the mouse but now it’s up to you to release it into the wild (and hope it doesn’t find its way back).
- Poisoned Bait has the obvious risk of unintentionally making you, members of your household or your pets ill or worse.
Even if you have success by removing one or two mice at a time, you may still be dealing with a large infestation. If you’re willing to take that chance, you need to be in this for the long haul.
Or you could leave it to the pest control experts and call in a professional exterminator.
Mouse Extermination The Moyer Way
In the initial visit, our technician will inspect your home. They’re on the lookout for:
Potential Entry Points
Any holes, cracks or gaps in the foundation, in floors, around windows and doors, holes around sewer and plumbing lines and other areas of your home where mice can pass through.
Evidence of Mice
Gnawed and chewed spaces and mouse droppings. The technician will seal off any entry points to keep additional mice from entering your home.
The next step is creating a treatment plan to control the mice you have and prevent a reoccurrence of the infestation.
We will never place our traps in areas where they can cause harm to you, your family or pets. Our technicians have years of experience in knowing just the right spots to place mouse traps.
Safe application of chemicals
We may apply treatments of a rodenticide around the exterior of your property to control the mice already inside and also to prevent new mice from entering your home.
It may take more than one visit to completely rid your home of the mice infestation. Regular visits, like those provided in our service package, will help protect your home from these unwelcome visitors.
