You won’t have to constantly call someone to remove mice because you didn’t do it right the first time.

Find out How They’re Getting In

Mice are very crafty. They only need a hole the size of a dime in order to squeeze their way in and make their home in your attic. It’s important to make sure you perform a thorough home inspection to identify any and all entry points. Mice can enter your attic through vents, gaps in siding or shingles, and cracks in your foundation. 

If you spy any potential openings for mice, immediately cover them up. You can use metal flashing or steel mesh in order to cover up any holes or gaps in your siding. It’s best to cover all of your bases and cover up holes and cracks, even if you don’t think they’re being used. A wildlife removal company with experience and expertise can do this work for you to ensure no holes are missed.

Attic Restoration

It’s important to restore your attic once the mice have been removed. Not only does this help restore the structure of your home, but it also ensures all traces of mice are removed. 

Mice are drawn to the smell of urine. It acts as a territorial marker; other mice will often urinate over it with their own in order to become dominant. This means that even if you have successfully removed mice in attic, there’s the possibility the rodents could return if you don’t take the proper precautions. 

By restoring your attic, you’re making sure that your attic, and the rest of your house, is safe for you and your family. There is no need to worry about mice and their diseases returning to your home to plague you.
