Welcome to my site about pest control. I'm Miranda Maloney. Although many people fuss loudly about the presence of spiders in the home, these creatures often clear out the bugs that cause far worse problems. Spiders consume beetles, cockroaches, moths and other pests that wreak havoc throughout the house. Thankfully, however, you can hire a pest control professional to eliminate bugs in your home if you do not want to co-habitate with spiders. In fact, pest control professionals can eliminate the spiders as well. I will share information about pest control tactics, both natural and commercial, on this site. Please follow along to learn more.
You are diligent about keeping rodents out of your kitchen and attic spaces, and the last thing that you ever expected to find was a chewed up wrapper or rodent droppings in the floorboards. Unfortunately, rodents invade vehicles for the same reasons that they enter houses since both can serve as a source of shelter, nesting materials and food. The good news is that you can get rid of mice in your vehicle by using these strategies for rodent control.
Clean Up Food Debris
For many people, a car turns into a second home, and it is possible that you or your family members eat in your car regularly. Check your car's interior for signs of food debris that rodents find tempting. Keep in mind that even the scent of a spilled beverage in the seats could cause a rodent to come running for what they hope is an easy meal. Have your car thoroughly washed and detailed to remove any food or beverage residue that attracts mice to the interior.
Avoid Leaving Easy Entrances
A mouse's body is sometimes small enough to fit into a space as small as one-quarter of an inch. Avoid leaving your windows cracked when your car is parked without no one inside, and watch to make sure that all of the doors are shut completely. If your car is a convertible or has a removable top, then make sure to put it back in place when you are not driving.
Clear Out the Storage Area
Although a random mouse sighting can happen when your car is parked outside, this issue often occurs when a vehicle is parked in an infested area. Check your garage or storage unit for signs of a rodent infestation. For instance, you might find droppings in areas of the room that are rarely frequented by humans. Alternatively, you might hear scurrying sounds when you enter the room. If you suspect that mice inhabit your car storage area, then arrange for mice removal that will protect your other property as well as the car.
When mice invade cars, they can generate a large amount of damage within a short period of time. From torn up seat cushions to chewed through electrical wiring, the costs of dealing with a rampant mouse problem in your car can quickly add up. By working to keep your car free of attractants and eliminating mice in the storage space, you can take control of the rodent problem and preserve the value of your vehicle.
