Fox Pest Control’s Syracuse Mice Exterminator Service

There’s nothing worse than seeing a mouse run across your kitchen. After all, who wants to cook or eat in a room that a mouse has been using for his own personal bathroom? Sadly, these irritating creatures are smart and sneaky; so once you see one of them, there’s probably more. Fox Pest Control doesn’t tolerate mice. We’ll put in the effort to make sure you and your family feel safe in a clean home.

Signs of a Mice Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have a mouse problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a mouse infestation in Syracuse. 

Droppings

The first sign of a mouse infestation is their droppings. Mice aren’t particular about where they leave their droppings, so they will appear anywhere the mice are hiding, including the backside of drawers, inside pantries or cabinets, in basements or attic spaces, under water heaters or heating units, etc.

Noises

Mice may make noise at night, usually scurrying sounds, scratching, or squeaking.

Bite marks

Mice are rodents, which means their teeth are constantly growing. They have a strong urge to chew things to wear down their teeth, including wood, cardboard, food containers, or plastic.

Sightings

Although less common than the other signs of mice, a mouse may get caught in the open when the light is turned on in the basement, kitchen, or other room. In rare cases, mice may run out into the open looking for food, water, or shelter.

Things You Need to Know About Mice:

  • Mice are classified as rodents, meaning that their front teeth (incisors) never stop growing. 
  • To keep their incisors trim, mice need to constantly chew on things. This could be brick, fabric, food or really anything around your property. 
  • Aside from food, these small critters will chew a hole straight through your wall if they need to. 
  • Holes as small as a nickel could be an entry point for mice, because they have the ability to squeeze their bodies into incredibly tight spaces.
  • Once they get inside, there’s a risk of contracting diseases transmitted through mouse droppings or urine, bites or tainted food such as:
    • Hantavirus
    • Salmonella 
    • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV). 

Helpful Mice Prevention Tips: 

  • Seal common entry points
  • Seal all food in airtight containers
  • Fix leaky faucets
  • Reduce hiding places in the kitchen and other areas of the house where food is kept.

Here Is Why You Should Call Fox Pest Control

Mouse Control FAQ

How do I get rid of mice?

The best way to treat mice is with preventative measures, such as filling up tiny gaps and cracks around the house, and also fixing cracks in the foundation. Store your food in airtight containers to make your home less appealing to them as well. 

When mice have already invaded, it’s best to call Fox Pest Control to let us return your home to you and make it safe and comfortable again.

What damage do mice cause in homes?

The biggest problem mice will usually give to homeowners is contaminate food and chew through walls, containers, furniture, fabric, paper, and electrical wiring. 

How do I know if I have mice in the house?

Signs of mice include:

Chewed cloths or paper
Discarded feces
Squeaks, squeals, strange noises, and movements, especially at night
Tiny mouse footprints in dirt or piles of food (eg prints in flour or sugar)
Holes chewed through food containers or in the walls
Unusual alert behavior of house cats or dogs

Are mice dangerous?

Mice can carry diseases like hantavirus, leptospirosis, and salmonella. They can also be covered with fleas or ticks and bring them inside. 

How did mice get in my house?

Mice have an extraordinary ability to squeeze themselves into tiny spaces. If the outside wall of a house has any gaps, a mouse can fit into a hole the diameter of a nickel or smaller. 

Can mice fit in small spaces?

Mice can fit into gaps or cracks the size of a nickel or even a dime. 

As long as the mouse can fit its little head in a gap or hole, its unique bone structure allows it to pull itself through. 

Why are mice trying to get in my house?

Once inside your home, mice will look for hiding places with plenty of food and water nearby, so the kitchen or food storage areas are obvious hiding spots.

What do mice eat?

Mice can eat a lot of different sorts of food, especially foods that are high in sugar or protein. With their strong sense of smell, they go looking for foods they prefer, and the typical kitchen is full of them. That’s why it’s extremely important to seal all your food — including pet food — in airtight containers.

What’s the difference between a mouse and a rat?

Body size. Adult mice are much smaller than adult rats

Feces. Mice feces are brown or black and about the size and shape of rice grains. Norwegian rat droppings are larger and more cylindrical, and roof rat feces are larger and more banana-shaped.

Tails. Rat tails are hairless, whereas mice tails grow tiny hairs. Mouse tails are proportionately longer compared to their body size than rat tails. 

Ears. Mouse ears are more rounded than a rat’s, and rat ears are slightly narrower than a mouse’s.

Body shape. Rats, especially the Norwegian rat, have more of a hunch to their bodies than mice.

Syracuse Pest Control Reviews

5 Stars

We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
