Mice and Rat Pest Control by Bug Busters
Mice are the most common pest in the world. They are only 2 to 3 inches long (without tail measurement), usually in brown color but sometimes may be found in some other colors as well.
Mice are considered the most terrible pest in the US. They are also known as rodents and can be found inside houses, farms, or commercial properties. Mostly you can find rats wherever the food is easily available for them. The territory of mice can be small, but they are always nearby the food source.
Mice and rats get in and make places for themselves; they are very tough to get rid of in homes, farms, and commercial properties. They spread many life-threatening diseases for both humans and pets. They cause a lot of damage in the property like making holes between cracks and walls, they destroy the cloths, they infect the open food, and they sometimes also cause damage to pets.
What are the facts that you must know about mice?
- Mice breed very quickly and can produce around 6 – 8 pups at a time, and they reproduce all year round, so their population increases rapidly.
- Mice are very social and always live in groups. So if one rat enters your property, then soon they will create their family and will be huge in number.
- Mice are excellent climbers and can climb your beds as well. They are also very good at getting away unharmed as they usually manage to get food for themselves and escape without being trapped.
- Mice can get in anywhere. With their tiny size, they can squeeze in anywhere and make a shelter for themselves. Maybe through the back of the refrigerator, or your cabinetry, or even the garage- they can make their way anywhere.
- Mice can survive by any food, be it human food or pet food. They only need food to grow.
How do I identify that there are mice, rats, and rodents in my house?
Signs like urine, droppings, a rodent’s paw prints, and holes on the wall or in corners of the floor are the common ways to identify the presence of mice in your home.
A very good inspection by Bug Busters can check and confirm with all these signs what type of rats are present, how serious the problem is, what are the main reasons behind it are, and how to control this in future.
How can I get rid of mice from my property?
You can do pest control of mice yourself by –
- Placing mousetraps in your home.
- Placing baits as food in different corners of your home.
- Sealing all the holes and corners of your home.
- Cleaning all the corners as well as behind heavy furniture where they usually make their nests.
But these all take a lot of time, so it may take weeks to get the result you want. They reproduce and grow so quickly that it is almost impossible to get rid of rodents by yourself.

Finding out the ways from where they are entering the property is the first step for pest control. Identifying the locations like a hole on the floor, the crack between two walls, a basement or a store that is not been commonly used, a garage, or maybe even the pipelines, is crucial in order to prevent future infestation. The entry places may include a long list of places to identify the routes of the entrants.
The placing of traps is extremely important. Traps should be placed in strategic locations so that the rodents get attracted to it.
The next thing is to decide on the baits. They should be of the best quality and be placed according to the severity of the infestation of mice.
Close all the entry areas so that rodents do the find a way to enter the property. Sealing the holes and filling the gaps between the pipelines are steps that we take to control the rats in the future.
