How Mice Infest in the Kitchen and Way to Stop It


 
Home Improvement,Health,Environment
When mice get into homes, they can create a wide range of mice problems, from contaminating your home to damaging your food. Mice will end up in the kitchen, looking for food, and will contaminate foods in the cupboards, kitchen surfaces and pantries by leaving significant amounts of droppings and urine.

Some people get Salmonella poisoning, simply from mice crawling around on the counters or furniture, surfaces that we touch every day.Not only do mice contaminate areas, mice can also cause significant damage to things like electrical wiring and other materials within the attics and walls of your home. They can damage insulation in the attic and can leave a mess of droppings to be cleaned up. It is important to take the proper precautions when dealing with mouse excrement and it is best to contact a pest control office in your area for services on repairing mouse damage and decontaminating areas of your home.

Prevention is the first defense against pest infestation in the kitchen. One of the places that you are most likely to find mice is in the kitchen. There's a very good reason for this of course, it is where most of the food is. If you do find mice in your kitchen though, what are the best pest control methods to deal with them?

One of the most important things to do is clean. They might not have been attracted to the food in your kitchen to begin with, but now they are there they will try to get every little bit that they can. So you should make sure that everything from crumbs on the floor to dirty dishes are cleaned away as soon as possible. They certainly shouldn't be left out overnight.

Proper sanitation and house-proofing are chemical-free measures for controlling and deterring mice, ants, cockroaches and flying insects. If you still encounter pests, try organic or less-toxic control measures before resorting to spraying or dusting chemical pesticides throughout your kitchen.

Keep pests out of the kitchen by removing spilled food promptly; storing food in tightly sealed containers; not leaving dirty dishes in the sink; cleaning bottles and cans with warm, soapy water; keeping garbage cans covered and not letting garbage accumulate. Remove uneaten pet food and wash your pet's food and water dishes often. Caulk and seal openings around windows and doors as well as cracks in walls and floors. Repair any tears or gaps in screened windows and doors. Keeping piles of wood away from the outside perimeter of the house and replacing rotting wood on porches, decks, windowsills and doorways will also deter some pests

As mentioned, mice do not only need food in order to survive, they also need water. It could be that they were attracted to your property because you have leaking pipes or blocked drains then. These are things that you should attempt to sort out, but at the same time you can be employing pest control methods to get rid of the mice.

For the most effective pest control treatments it is best to use the professionals. If you want to though you can purchase the traps or poison yourself to try to get rid of the mice. On the whole, unless it is a particularly large infestation, it is better to use traps. That's because it will make disposing of the bodies much easier as you'll know exactly where to find them.

If you use mouse poison instead, while it will probably get more of them in one go, you're not going to know where they are going to die so they could end up decomposing on your property. This can lead to further pest control problems, as well as a horrible stench.
