How to get rid of mice

Mice create messes and chew through walls, wires, and other materials. They look for access to buildings for easy, abundant sources of food and undisturbed areas to nest. An infestation of mice in your home or business puts people at risk of diseases and other health issues.

In short, you do not want to just “live with” a mouse infestation in or around your property. Take the following steps to get rid of mice:

  • Eliminate entry points - Cover up holes and fill in cracks
  • Cut back shrubs and branches - Mice will use these to gain entry to your house
  • Seal food in airtight containers - This includes pet food!
  • Do dishes immediately after eating - Mice will come out to check for scraps
  • Clean up food spills - Mice love to eat!
  • Check under the hood of your car - Mice can hide inside your car and chew through wires
  • Forget the DIY solutions - They can be highly ineffective in eliminating a mouse infestation
  • Call Ehrlich!

Ehrlich’s mice control specialists are trained to help get rid of mice and prevent future infestations. If you have spotted the signs of a mouse infestation or have seen mice in your home, contact us today for an appointment with one of our specialists.


How to get rid of mice in the house

Eliminate any exterior openings in your house so mice cannot enter your home. Also, keep your house as clean as possible - mice will have more difficulty reproducing when they do not have enough food, water and shelter.

Having mice in your home is a serious health risk. Mice carry a wide variety of diseases and will transfer those while trying to find food in your house. If left untreated, a small problem can turn into a major problem.

How to get rid of mice in walls

Have you heard mouse sounds in your walls? House mice like using dark spots that are hidden for their nests so they are not bothered. Your walls are the perfect spot and wall insulation happens to be one source of nest material for them. If you think mice are in your walls, contact a pest professional who knows how to get rid of mice. Get in touch with Ehrlich today.

How to get rid of mice in your car

No matter if you keep your car in a closed garage, store it away in a storage unit, or park it on the street, mice can find it. Mice often crawl into the inside of a car for warmth, where they can do damage quickly. If you're worried about mice taking up residence under your car’s hood, try some of these things:

  • Remove food from vehicles when not in use
  • Avoid parking near wooded areas where mice could be hiding
  • Place deterrents around the car such as mothballs, cedarwood, or peppermint oil
  • Seal holes or cracks in your garage walls or doors
  • Open the hood when the car is parked (this will cool down the inside of your car, making it less attractive to mice)

Check your auto insurance policy to see if it includes coverage for rodent damage. Regardless of whether it does or does not, no one wants mouse damage to their car. Have an Ehrlich specialist inspect your property to check for rodent activity. Get ahead of mice, and stop them before they chew through your battery cables.

How to get rid of mice in your business

A partnership with us will help to protect your business long-term against future pest problems and reflect positively on the business from the view of stakeholders, peers, and your customers. The business impact of pests is well known and can affect brand reputation, customer reviews, employee morale, operational efficiency, and ultimately revenue and profits.
