Traditional spring-loaded mousetraps may be the first methods homeowners are tempted to try in their efforts to eliminate mice from their homes. But here’s the thing, DIY methods such as traditional and more innovative mouse trapping devices and commercial rodent baits present potential dangers to pets and curious children.

Professional pest control companies, such as your local Truly Nolen location excel at strategic trap placement, retrieval of mice carcasses and specialized cleaning procedures required to prevent the spread of pathogens in dried mice waste from becoming airborne and spreading the deadly respiratory virus and other known pathogens to your family and pets.

Contact your Truly Nolen professional today for a free rodent inspection and to work out a plan to reduce an existing population with our innovative, people and pet-friendly Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system, designed for your home and family’s specific needs. Trapping can take a while to eliminate rodents from your home; Truly Nolen regularly checks traps until all rodent activity ceases.

To prevent future rodent infestations, Truly Nolen says that the best way to prevent rodents from becoming a problem in your home is to exclude them in addition to creating unfavorable conditions in your home for rodents. Keep the following in mind:

  • Seal all cracks and crevices in your home’s foundation and around entryways.
  • Install door sweeps, repair damaged screens and screen chimney vents.
  • Store dry goods in airtight metal, glass or hard plastic containers.
  • Clean all pantry spills along with all food prep and dining surfaces, including floors and countertops.
  • Repair leaky pipes and other moisture sources.
  • Keep attics, basements and crawlspaces dry and well ventilated.
  • Eliminate clutter from the interior of your home.
  • Remove debris and woodpiles from the exterior of your home, stacking firewood at least 20 feet from your home.
  • Keep lawn cut short and shrubbery trimmed away from house.
  • Sanitize garbage receptacle areas regularly.

Contact a pest control professional immediately if you suspect rodent activity.
