Mouse Control Services
Mouse control services include using traps and/or treating to get rid of the mice from inside a structure. However, unlike many pest control companies, our service includes finding entrance holes and doing long term repairs on the outside of the structure to keep mice from re-entering the structure. Arrow Pest Control prides itself on finding and repairing all the holes mice are using to enter the structure, whether at ground level or on the roof. Mice can and do climb stucco, brick, stone, or similar materials to reach the roof. We have 22 years of experience in mouse proofing structures. Our goal is to find a long term solution to your mouse problem.
Mice have an adult body length, from tip of nose to the base of the tail, of 2 to 4 inches. Mice are generally grayish-brown with a gray or buff belly. Mouse tails and ears have little hair. Mouse droppings are blackish and about 3 mm long. House Mice thrive under a variety of conditions. Mice are found in and around homes and commercial structures as well as fields and agricultural land. House Mice consume and contaminate food meant for humans, pets and livestock. Mice often cause damage to structures and property. Mice can transmit pathogens that cause diseases, such as Salomellosis, a form of food poisoning. The House Mouse often live in close association with humans and therefor is termed a "commensal rodent" because of their habit of nibbling and discarding partially eaten food. Mice destroy more food than they consume. House Mice primarily feed on plant matter, but will also eat meat and dairy. Mice will drink water when available to them , but can rely on the moisture in the food consume. A lack of water or low moisture in their food may reduce their breeding potential. Mice breed year-round and may have 5-10 litters a year. Mice give birth to an average litter size of 6-8. A female House Mouse can reach sexual maturity at about 6 weeks and the male mouse reaches sexual maturity at about 8 weeks. The House Mouse usually lives about a year, but mice can live up to almost three years.
