Mice can fit through an opening the size of a dime

Did you know mice can fit through an opening the size of a dime? The typical house mouse can product three litters each year with up to 12 offspring per litter. No one wants to know they have rodents in their house. They can carry disease and make nests in your walls and attic, chewing through wires and anything else they can eat. Not to mention – they strike fear in even the most stoic homeowner as they scamper across the floor.

Here at Cavanaugh’s Professional Termite and Pest Services, we specialize in pest control as it pertains to mice, rats and other rodents. These pests can invade both residential and commercial properties, with the most common being the House Mouse and the Deer Mouse. The White-Footed Mouse, the Black Rat and the Norway Rat are all native to New Jersey. They gain access to your home or business in the winter, make a nest to get warm, and start breeding.

For a home, this is nuisance enough. For a business such as a restaurant, this can spell certain peril if a mouse or rat is seen by a customer. The Health Department gets involved and can even shut you down if you don’t meet their standards. That’s why it’s critical for you to have a professional like us take care of the situation quickly and discreetly.

Mice and rats can spread diseases such as the following:

  • Food Poisoning
  • Hepatitis
  • Poliomyelitis
  • Meningitis
  • Rabies
  • Trichinosis
  • Typhus Fever
  • Lyme disease
