Have you seen someone react hysterically to a mouse? There are some who find those itty, bitty mice to be extremely scary. They’ll screech and climb up onto chairs or counters to get away from a mouse. Most Dallas residents find themselves on the other side of the spectrum. A rodent isn’t a big deal. It is just one of the many furry critters in the great state of Texas. But mice and rats can be harmful to your property as they chew through building materials and gnaw on wires. They can also damage stored furniture and other items you have in storage. As they move through your home, they cause contamination with their urine, feces and dirty hair. If all of this isn’t bad enough, they bring friends with them. A single mouse can have as many as a hundred seed ticks on its body. Trust us when we say, you’re better off not having these critters inside your home. That’s why we’ve put together this quick guide for mouse and rat exclusion. Here’s what you need to know.
There are conditions that can lure mice and rats into your yard. If you alter these conditions, you can make your yard less attractive.
When rodents get up close to your home they will hide under structures and in landscaping as they explore your exterior for entry points. Your goal should be to make it difficult for them to hide, or find a way in.
