The mice can carry harmful bacteria, diseases & viruses such as the Hantavirus. This virus can cause the deadly Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.
Hantavirus is carried in the mouse's urine, droppings, and saliva. Breathing in the virus particles can be fatal.
Mice can also carry several other diseases. These can include plague, hemorrhagic fever, salmonellosis, tularemia & leptospirosis, and more.
Seeing live mice is only one sign that you have mice. You will also see droppings and possible nests. The adult house mouse can squeeze through a hole the size of a dime so that they can get into your home very quickly.

Rodent bait can be dangerous and should not be considered a DIY project. However, there is quite a bit to consider, and our rodent experts are highly trained on the proper methods and proper bait stations to kill mice.
One of the most trusted professional methods to reduce a mouse population is bait. We offer a variety of baits that will be sure to take care of your problem.

Mice are small, brown, and furry. They have short, hairless tails and small black eyes. They weigh between 1/2 an ounce and 1 ounce.
Adult mice can range from 3-4 inches long, not including the tail. Baby mice are called pups and are about 1/4 of an inch long when born. When the mouse is born, it is pink and hairless.
Mice can breed throughout the year, so it is essential to take care of any mouse problem as soon as you see the signs.
Mice are smaller than rats. Often there is confusion about the key differences between these rodents since they share some characteristics and behaviors.
The most obvious difference is the size since a mouse is much smaller than a rat. However, there are also many other physical differences that you can see just by looking at them.
House mice like to live in small, dark spaces where they feel safe. They can fit through a hole the size of a dime. We can prevent mice from getting into your home by having us come to inspect and seal off any possible entrances and using rodent-proofing materials.
Mice can be hard to spot, so knowing what to look for when you suspect a mouse infestation is essential. First, you will likely see small droppings around your home. This will usually take the form of small black droppings about the size of a grain of rice.
You may also see chewed-up food packages. With this, you might want to consider storing your food in glass or metal containers. You might also notice gnawed on wires or electric outlets that no longer work.
This can be dangerous! One tiny house mouse can cause a large house fire by shorting the electricity.
We know how to find mouse activity and how to eliminate the mouse populations with effective mouse control.
Detecting mice activity should be considered as a critical part. The mouse traps and rodenticide bait need to be placed in a proper location. When we inspect for mice, we will look for urine marks and staining.
Mice will gather where food is plentiful, so they are often found in homes or buildings because of the kitchens. They are also attracted to houses with an abundant source of water inside or nearby.
With that being said, if you have dogs, cats, or other animals, it is best to put their food and water away when they are not eating or drinking, especially if you already have mice or the animals eat and drink their water outside.
Mice will also seek out materials to use for their nests. This can include insulation, clothing, and other fabric items. They can also build nests out of paper, straw, and other materials.
You can help reduce the potential for a mouse infestation by keeping your home clean and free of clutter.
In the wild, mice need to hide from predators and the weather. So they will seek out sheltered areas where they can feel safe. Indoors, they will look for spaces like inside of walls, pantries, cabinets, crawlspaces, attics, and basements.
Mice are scavengers and these rodents will eat just about anything. They like to eat grains, fruits, vegetables, and meat. Unfortunately, they are also attracted to pet food, so it is vital to keep your pet food stored in a mouse-proof container, such as metal containers, to eliminate their food supply.
Keeping your Los Angeles home clean will go a long way toward keeping mice away. However, mouse droppings and urine stains can carry disease, so keeping these contaminants out of your home is important.
