We cover a lot of important information about pests in this little blog of ours. If you've come looking for helpful tips about mice, you've come to the right place. Here, you can learn how mice break into Middle Tennessee homes and businesses, problems mice cause in Nashville homes, and other essential things. Today, we're going to condense this information down into a few things every Spring Hill resident should know about mice.

1. Mice aren't harmless.

When mice get into Spring Hill homes, they can present more problems than you might think. They bring ticks, fleas, mites, and other parasites in with them. They can create holes in your exterior that can allow rainwater to damage your home and cause mold issues. They can spread harmful bacteria and diseases to your foods, dishes, silverware, and food-prep areas. They can chew into stored boxes and damage valuable keepsakes. They leave droppings and urine in many locations. We could go on and on but, hopefully, you get the point. Mice aren't harmless visitors.

2. Mice are hard to remove and exclude.

You might think that the answer to a mouse infestation is to throw some traps down. But traps fail to control mice in many ways. If you put traps in the wrong places, positioned in the wrong way, in the wrong numbers, or with the wrong bait, you may not catch any mice at all. If you do catch mice, you may think you solved your problem, only to have mice quietly sneaking around your home and continuing to make your family sick and damaging your property.

3. Professional mouse control is a science.

You might think that a pest professional is just going to lay traps down, catch a few mice and hand you a bill. While this may be the case with some pest control companies, it is not the case when you hire an expert. The educated and experienced service professionals at All-American Pest Control use techniques and products that have been field-tested and are known to work. When your home is given the all-clear, you know that there is a very good chance that you don't have any mice in your home because your service professional would see evidence during routine monitoring.

Mice 101

What you need to know most about mice would not be taught in a college course on mice. You don't need to know all of the many species of mice that can get into your home and all of the many ways they differ in their habits and habitat preferences. What you need to know most is that they can present serious threats and that those threats are best addressed with the assistance of an educated pest control professional.
