Florida's Mice Control Experts Protecting Your Home and Health

Seeing signs of mice in your Florida home can quickly transform feelings of comfort into distress. Once you spot droppings, hear scurrying, or see other evidence of mice, it’s time to take action.

Mice might seem like cute and harmless creatures, but they cause significant damage once inside the home. Beyond physical destruction, mice spread diseases and trigger allergies. An infestation can happen quicker than you’d imagine since mice are prolific breeders.

That’s why Florida Wildlife Trappers offers comprehensive mice control to eliminate current infestations and prevent future problems. With an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, our specialists use the latest techniques and tools to evict mice humanely. Then we target the root causes to keep them from coming back.

Droppings such as this is a major sign of Mice, showing the need for Mice Removal, and mouse trapping

Signs of Mice

Mice are timid and prefer to avoid humans. Even if you have an infestation, you might never spot a mouse darting through your home. Instead, look for these signs that mice have moved in:

  • Droppings – Mice produce 20-50 pellet-like droppings per day. The size, shape, and color help identify the rodent. Mouse droppings are smaller than rat droppings.
  • Urine stains – Urine stains along their pathways glow under UV light. The highest concentration is around food and nesting areas.
  • Gnawing damage – Mice gnaw on materials to gain entry or sharpen teeth. Look for gnaw marks or small holes on food packaging, furniture, drywall, and wires.
  • Nesting materials – Mice build nests from soft materials like insulation, paper, and fabrics. You may find shredded piles in out-of-sight areas.
  • Sounds – Listen for scurrying in walls and ceilings, especially at night. Mice are most active after dark.

If you spot any of these signs, Florida Wildlife Trappers can inspect your home and confirm if mice have moved in. We identify all entry points, nesting sites, and high activity areas. An accurate assessment determines the best mice removal plan.

Mice Removal

When mice invade your home, Florida Wildlife Trappers prioritizes a humane removal process. We use harmless trapping techniques to catch and remove all mice on the property.

Snap traps and live traps effectively catch mice without chemicals or poisons. Baiting the devices with peanut butter or chocolate draws mice in. Once mice take the bait, the trap triggers and catches the rodent.

Traps are strategically placed along baseboards, in closets, attics, garages, and anywhere else mice are active. The number used depends on the size of the infestation. Trapping takes 5-10 days to remove an existing mice population.

All trapped mice are safely removed from the property and traps reset until no more mice are caught. Sanitation and exclusion come next to prevent mice from returning once trapping finishes.

Despite popular belief Cats are not a reliable source of Mouse Prevention and Mice Control

Mice Prevention

Getting rid of mice currently in your home solves part of the problem. But if entry points and attractions remain, new mice will invade to claim your home as their own. That’s why prevention is a critical part of our mice control process.

Entry Points Mice can squeeze through openings as small as 1/4 inch wide. Common entry points include:

  • Cracks in foundations and walls
  • Gaps around windows, doors, pipes, wires, vents
  • Uncovered vents
  • Loose siding
  • Openings where utilities enter the home

Our technicians methodically check inside and outside to locate and seal all possible entryways. Steel wool, copper mesh, caulk, concrete, and other durable materials keep mice from chewing back in.

Potential Health Hazards from Mice

While mice themselves are small and timid, they can transmit diseases to humans through contact, droppings, or bites. Mice are frequent carriers of Hantavirus, a rare but dangerous respiratory disease. If you have signs of an infection after exposure to mice, seek medical care immediately.

Mice droppings also contain harmful pathogens like Salmonella and can cause foodborne illnesses if ingested. Be vigilant in keeping food preparation areas free of mice feces. If cleaning up after mice, wear gloves and a mask to avoid exposure. Promptly disinfect any surfaces that had contact with droppings.

Mice bites, while rare, can cause bacterial infections. Clean any bite marks thoroughly with soap and water. Watch for signs of swelling or redness, and contact a doctor if they develop. Prevent bites by sealing up any holes mice could enter through and keeping food properly stored. While mice themselves appear harmless, use all due caution when dealing with them or their leavings.
