What To Do About Mice In Your Las Vegas Home

November 15, 2022

Mice can squeeze through a quarter-sized hole, climb up a vertical wall or chew through wall panels -if a mouse decides it wants into your home, it's coming in.

Millions of years of evolution add up to a superbly capable pest looking to ruin the food in your home, chew up your furniture, spread disease, and generally be as unpleasant as possible.

Sharing your house with a bunch ( and if you're seeing one-there is a bunch) of mice is not an option so let's take a few minutes and learn about these disease-spreading little critters, what you can do to keep them out, and failing that, what are the options for pest control in Las Vegas to take care of these invaders.

How To Identify A Mouse Infestation In Your Home

If you're coming across any of the following signs, you're very likely dealing with mice infestation:

  • You may find mice droppings in corners and darker, hard-to-reach areas. Mice are nocturnal and masters at not being seen; often, droppings are the only sign of them being in the house.
  • Smallish holes in the cabinets, drawers, and walls usually indicate mice establishing pathways and settling into your home.
  • Tears or holes in clothing and insulation; building a nest is a mouse's first priority after establishing residence in your house. They use pieces of cloth and insulation for construction materials.

If you've spotted signs of a mouse infestation in your Las Vegas home, it's essential to get on top of this situation before it gets out of control because mice breed fast, and one mouse can become a huge colony rapidly.

The Dangerous Diseases Mice Are Known To Spread

Besides ruining your home(mice chewing on wiring in the walls are the leading cause of house fires) and making you uncomfortable, mice and the fleas they bring into your house are known for carrying multiple transferable diseases such as :

  • Leptospirosis
  • Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM)
  • Tularemia
  • Salmonellosis

Ticks and fleas that live on mice transfer multiple and sometimes deadly diseases as well:

  • Lyme disease
  • Meningoencephalitis
  • Rickettsiae

Living in a house infested with mice is not just uncomfortable but dangerous, but unfortunately, once a colony is established, getting rid of it is not easy.

Why DIY Mouse Control Is A Waste Of Time And Money

Tackling house upkeep problems is just a part of the job description for homeowners. Clearing out a mouse infestation is one of those jobs that's so unpleasant and hard to succeed at that tackling it is best left to experienced professionals.

  • Most house cats do not have much interest in catching mice. Cats kept as house pets are too used to easy access to food to bother with chasing a mouse around.
  • Success in using glue traps or regular mouse traps depends on knowing what food mice in the area are used to and is always a hit-and-miss proposition.
  • Using poison pellets can be a danger to your house pets; a mouse dead after eating mice poison found and eaten by a cat or a dog can seriously injure or even kill them.

Even if successful in exterminating a portion of the colony, the task is messy and disgusting. Unless every last mouse is gone, you're looking at the same problem in a short time.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
