Keep That Mouse Out of Your House

Cooler temperatures provide extra incentive for mice to find a way into your house. If you suspect you have mice, you need to address the problem immediately. Mice can

carry infectious diseases and present a health hazard to you and your family. Because a female can have up to 10 litters a year with six or more babies per litter there is no such thing as one mouse! 


If mice have gotten into food in your home, don't take chances--throw it away. Always wash your hands after handling anything that may have had contact with mice. Stay safe by wearing gloves when handling traps. The best way to deal with mice is preventing them from entering your house in the first place.


Basic Mice Prevention 

  • Store food, especially grains, pet food and birdseed, in rodent-proof metal or heavy plastic containers.
  • Store grass seed in sealed containers.
  • Rodent proof your garbage cans by settling them on 6-in. high wood platforms. Be sure lids fit tight; use rubber cords to fasten them if necessary. Replace cans with cracks or holes.
  • Search out holes (even small ones) around your foundation, eaves and soffits and fill with steel wool, caulk, plaster or cement or cover with sheet metal.

If You Do Have Mice... there are several options to get rid of them: live traps, snap traps, sticky traps, and poison. We don't recommend poison, particularly if you have pets or children, as it is very dangerous if ingested. 

Snap traps are effective. Using two doubles the chances of trapping a mouse because it can jump over one trap, but not two. A trap can be reused--the scent of a captured mouse actually attracts other mice.

If you have any questions about how to keep mice out of your home this fall or are concerned you may already have mice, ask one of our friendly, in-house experts for advice.

Ants chose protected locations in and around your home like walls, under floors and crawlspaces to establish colonies or "nests." Ants are attracted to a variety of food types including carbohydrates (sugars), proteins (meats), fats and oils. Cooler weather can make ants particularly active.
If you're seeing ants in and around your home, the first step is to clean up crumbs, cooking oil, and sources of water. This alone will go a long way toward reducing the problem by depriving foraging ants of food and water. Also, seal holes around pipes and wires that pass into your home. Ants use these as "highways" to gain entry from colonies located in crawlspaces and other areas adjacent to your home's interior.
Baits work much better than conventional insecticides in eliminating ants in your home because of the unique way worker ants forage for food and bring it back to the nest. K&B True Value carries many varieties of baits/traps including more environmentally-friendly choices like Terro Ant Bait as well as conventional sprays.
