How Humane Pest Control Can Save Your Home
Pests are always lurking, and unfortunately they sometimes makes their way into your home. Depending on where you live, it’s almost impossible to stop them from getting into your walls and making their nests. Luckily, there’s always a pest control service there to help. While you may not want pests in your home, you might not want to be cruel to the creatures you find. Pests find their way into wherever they feel safest, and while it may be a nuisance to you, they are simply doing what they can to survive. In the case that you are against common mice exterminators, there are other options for pest removal services.
Mice are not good roommates to have, here’s a little info on why.
Wherever a mouse goes, they leave droppings of urine, feces, and hair. This is a large human health issue because mice carry diseases that humans can contract if they are in contact. Mice feces carries a virus called Hantavirus, which can cause flu like symptoms and in some causes death. Mice also carry salmonella and lyme disease. If you know that mice are inside your home, it’s important to contact pest control services as soon as possible before yourself or your family become ill.
Mice can cause substantial damage to your home without you even noticing. They will use just about anything to build your nest, including insulation and chipped wood that they create by gnawing on the walls of your home. Many mice will find passages inside of your home and use your clothing and furniture to build nests as well. They will eventually get to your kitchen as well, in order to find any food that they can get to.
While mice live in your walls, they’ll definitely chew on anything they can, including electrical wiring. Not only does this cause damage for lights and power in your home, but it can cause a fire. Chewed wires still have electricity flowing through them, which has the potential to short circuit and spark. Sparks can easily catch insulation on fire, creating a blaze that can easily cause massive damage to your home and put your family’s lives in danger.
All of these issues should be enough for anyone to call up pest control services and get mice out of their home immediately. However, humane options are available. Humane pest control services are all about physically removing the pests and then encourage others to not come back to the home. These methods are done without injury or death to the animals. Humane traps are used to lure mice out of their nests and hiding spots, in an effort to collect and relocate them. Entry and exit points should be sealed after all pests are removed in order to prevent the situation from reoccurring. Humane pest control services should also have all natural and non toxic concentrates to place around your home in order to deter animals.
