Mice are an economic pest that causes damage and disease. They
can enter a house through an opening as small as ¼" or about the diameter
of a pencil. The best preventative is "building them out," or closing
all openings ¼" or larger.
Mice that are inside the house can be trapped or poisoned.
Dead mice rarely cause an odor problem. If they do, it won’t last over 1 week,
as mice are small and decay quickly.
You can try to control mice yourself, using products from the
hardware store, or you can call a professional pest control company.
||Rats are economic pests that cause damage and disease. They
can enter a house through opening as small as ½" in diameter. While
"building them out" by closing all openings ½" in diameter or
larger is important, it’s probably best to also hire a professional
exterminator for a rat problem.
