Have you found signs of mice in your Ohio home or business? Have you stumbled upon droppings, found gnaw marks where they weren’t before, maybe you smell a foul odor, see a new runway or track, found a nest… Or actually saw the little rodents scrummaging around your home or business? Regardless how you discovered you have mice, getting rid of them is the most important step. We are here to make it a piece of cake (or in this case, cheese) to get mice out of your Ohio home or business.

It started when you saw a black, rice-shaped pellet on your counter or floor. Or maybe it was the scratching sound in your walls that first alerted you to the problem, or the jagged hole you found in a box of cereal in the pantry. Whatever the initial clue, it has recently become clear that you have an unwanted visitor in your home or business.

If mice have gotten into your Northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan home or business, you probably immediately started taking steps to eliminate them, and likely already discovered that getting rid of a mouse infestation is not as easy or simple as you thought it would be. Here’s why you’re having a difficult time getting mice out of your Ohio or Michigan home or business.

When a mouse infestation is found in houses and businesses, most people immediately try to remedy the problem by setting one or multiple mouse traps. If you have set mouse traps before, you know that mice are smart and can sometimes sneak away with the bait without even setting off the trap. They have very fast reflexes and are often able to get away even if they do accidentally trigger the trap. If a mouse does trigger a trap while managing to get away, it is unlikely that they will make the same mistake twice. Instead, they will stay far away from the trap.  

Eventually, you’ll likely catch a mouse, you might even catch more than one; however, to solve your mouse problem, you can’t simply rely on setting a trap. Not to mention, discarding of a mouse caught in a trap is something that most people don’t really enjoy doing. If a mouse does get caught in a trap and you reuse the trap, other mice will be able to smell its former occupant and will keep their distance.

Mouse traps are unlikely to take care of your entire mouse infestation in your Ohio or Michigan home or business. Many people see one mouse in their house or business, catch a single mouse in a trap, and think that’s the end of their trouble. This scenario is unrealistic because where there is one mouse, there are usually more. If you see a mouse in your house or business or see signs of mice in your house or business, you likely have a larger infestation than you think. Mice infestations quickly grow while you’re trying to stop it. 

It’s clear that mouse traps cannot be the sole solution to your mouse infestation in your Ohio home or business. Although mouse traps may help and can be part of the solution, they will likely not eliminate every mouse in your house or business. If you’ve only been using mouse traps in your attempts to eliminate mice from your Ohio house or business, that is why you’re having a hard time being successful.
