How to Get Rid of Deer Mice

Rodents reproduce at alarmingly rapid rates. Homeowners suspecting a potential deer mouse issue are advised to contact a professional pest control company immediately, before a few deer mice turn into a full-blown deer mouse infestation. Contact your local Truly Nolen location to schedule a free pest inspection. Our skilled pest professionals will devise a plan customized for your home and your family’s needs. Deer mice exclusion begins with sealing all cracks and crevices in a structure’s foundation. For existing deer mice infestations, Truly Nolen’s elimination process includes:

  • Reducing the deer mouse population using eco-friendly materials and our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices to ensure strategic trap placement and the safe removal of mouse carcasses.
  • Eradicating disease-carrying feasting insects and vectors from affected areas.
  • Sanitizing affected areas with a specialized HEPA vacuum system that prevents dried mouse waste particulates from becoming airborne and spreading Hantavirus and other respiratory pathogens.
  • Monitoring your home for deer mouse activity and checking traps regularly.

Proactive homeowners can help exclude deer mice and other pests from their properties by:

  • Clearing all debris from around the exterior of your home.
  • Keeping lawns cut short, shrubs trimmed and eliminating tall grasses and other vegetation around your property.
  • Stacking wood at least 20 feet from your home.
  • Eliminating clutter and avoiding stockpiling cardboard boxes in attics, basements and storage sheds.
  • Vacuuming and/or sweeping dining and food prep areas after each meal.
  • Storing pantry goods in airtight hard plastic, metal or glass containers.
