Mice may look cute, but unfortunately they can pose a health risk, and therefore they aren’t something you want residing in your home. Mice live in and around homes, farms, commercial structures, and in open fields and agricultural lands. New Plymouth provides many habitats for the mice to choose from, such as business buildings or farms like ABCompany or Kovick Kountry Farms. You don’t want to deal with these mice on your own, so call your local New Plymouth pest control company, Get Lost Pest Control!

Mice can be dangerous to humans and spread diseases such as hantavirus, salmonella, and lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV) through their feces, even if you are careful not to touch them or come into contact. Mouse feces and urine can also dry and turn to dust, spreading the viruses into the air we breathe.

To treat for mice, make sure they don’t have access to any food, and get rid of their nesting materials safely- preferably with gloves and a face mask. You can also try to use natural mice repellents like peppermint oil, cayenne pepper, regular pepper, and cloves. However, those methods don’t always work, and there’s a large chance that the mice may return. That’s why reaching out to the trained New Plymouth professionals at Get Lost Pest Control is the best option for you! Give us a call now, and we’ll schedule you a free service bid!
