Deer Mice Rodent Control

Deer Mice Control - Croach Rodent ControlDeer Mice might seem cute and harmless, but they are one of four rodents that carry the dangerous Hantavirus.

Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) is fatal in 38% of cases in North America.

Do not come into contact with the feces, urine, or saliva of deer mice.

Unfortunately, many people who became sick reported they had not seen rodents or rodent droppings at all.

Therefore, mouse control is a high priority - whether you live near the woodlands or desert.

Deer mice in the proximity of your home can cause numerous problems.

  • They enter your home through space the size of a dime to find warmth and food.
  • They raid and hoard your food supplies.
  • They shred paper, fabrics, insulation, for material to build nests and gnaw on furnishings and structural supports.
  • They will try to live undetected in your home while destroying and infecting your property.

Signs of Mouse Activity

Since deer mice are nocturnal, you may never see one scampering across your kitchen floor. However, there are other signs you may have a rodent control problem.

  • Sounds of Nighttime Scurrying
    Deer mice prefer attics, basements, and crawl spaces when indoors. You may hear them moving about.
  • Mice Droppings
    Feces found on the floor, in drawers, or under sinks.
  • Gnawing
    Holes chewed in walls, under cabinets, or on boxes.
  • A Food Stash
    They prefer nuts, seeds, and berries but they'll eat other things as well.
  • A Nest
    It's rare that you'll accidentally discover a nest. We strongly recommend that you don't go looking for one. Breathing air contaminated with Hantavirus is how you become infected.

Deer mice do not hibernate. They remain active all seasons and can reproduce two to four litters each year (12 to 20 young) who are ready to begin reproducing themselves at only seven weeks old.

The dangerous deer mouse can quicky instigate a serious rodent infestation.
