The Pros’ Approach to Mouse Infestation

How to Treat Mouse Infestation

We’ve already observed how “cute” those little mice are in a previous post that also pointed out the health hazards of allowing a mouse infestation to fester. While mice are a lot more attractive than their larger rat cousins, they are no less vermin. They can eat through cables, leave droppings everywhere and, most importantly, carry disease, which they can transmit through their bite or their droppings. One white mouse in a cage as a pet is fine. A family of them scurrying through your house is not.

Many of our clients on Cape Cod and along the Massachusetts south shore have already learned this lesson, and we’re happy to have been of service to them. Fortunately, even for those residents who let the problem linger a little bit too long, our superior methods of pest removal have been able to resolve the problem. Whatever the level your mouse problem on Cape Cod has reached, Pest Pros has the solution.

Today, we want to discuss our approach in eliminating the problem and exterminating the varmints, with the aim of resolving your mouse infestation on Cape Cod once and for all.

How We Solve Your Mouse Problem on Cape Cod

We tackle the mouse issue in two ways. Remember, just because you get rid of the mice doesn’t necessarily mean you get rid of the problem. The bacteria mice spread love to hide in the nooks and crannies and the insulation of your home, just waiting to float out and infect your family. Thus, our two-step approach involves getting rid of the mice and the hazards they pose.

1. We control the population at hand by installing a mouse-baiting system

This isn’t your old rusty mousetrap. We employ a sophisticated, eco-friendly system that can cleanly catch all the mice in your home.

2. We address the mess they’ve left behind.

The insulation and the mouse bacteria embedded in it comes out, making your home safe from a potentially dangerous disease.

We employ “bacterial treatments” when the infestation has contaminated oft-used areas like a basement or an attic. Mice are notorious for using your insulation as their nesting material of choice. This leaves insulation, full of mouse urine, feces and even dead mice, lining your sub-floor.

Our clean-up approach mimics the same protocols our sister company, The Mold Pros, uses in mold remediation best practices. Further, we establish containment of the work area and create negative air pressure to exhaust airborne particles outside so as to prevent cross-contamination in the rest of the house.

Removing the insulation gives us the perfect opportunity to search for and eliminate rodent entry points, which is the final step in attacking mouse infestations. We take the extra step in mouse control and put your home back to pre-infestation quality.

You won’t find such a thorough approach to mouse infestation on Cape Cod anywhere else. As a locally owned and operated company, we know we can’t afford to miss anything when ridding your home of rats and mice and the bacteria they leave behind, because your health is at stake.

Since 1999, Pest Pros has been quickly, effectively and affordably ridding residents of mice and mouse bacteria in areas such as:

About Dan Caouette

While looking for a business opportunity, I moved to the Cape and became involved in the pest control industry.  In 2000, I opened Pest Pros and it's been growing ever since. After a few years, working to control pests, it became clear to me that the conditions that bred termites (damp, musty basements, rotted wood) are also prime conditions for mold growth.  As a pest controller, I was uniquely qualified to fight mold at the same time.  I started Mold Care Pros, a division of Pest Pros, to specialize in Mold Remediation and Prevention. I have been heavily involved in Business Network International (BNI) where I have served as both a president and as a director of several chapters.  I conduct seminars on pest control and regularly attend SCORE business classes and other business seminars.  I also devote time to a program called "Mended Hearts," where I speak to people about heart disease.
