Is it easy to keep mice out of your home

When it comes to rodents in Los Angeles County, mice – and house mice specifically – can be a big problem for homeowners. While it can be tricky to tell them apart from rats if you’ve never dealt with rodents before, there are a couple of key characteristics that make up the house mouse.

Not only are they much smaller than rats, growing only four inches in length, but house mice also have light bellies with dusty fur and round, beady eyes. The question is, once you know you have mice, how do you actually get rid of them?

Here’s what Los Angeles County homeowners should know about the diseases that house mice spread, the odds of them going away on their own, and where you can find effective rodent control services in Los Angeles County.

Where Can I Find Effective Rodent Control Services?

Nobody wants to waste time and money on a company that won’t get rid of the problem in the first place, but where can you find effective rodent control services in Los Angeles County? Luckily, you don’t need to look any further than contacting HomeShield Pest Control.

Not only are our solutions effective at getting rid of mice and other rodents that may be terrorizing your Los Angeles County home, but our treatments are child, pet, and eco-friendly as well. If you suspect you may have mice or another type of rodent living in the walls of your Los Angeles County home, there’s only one thing to do – call us today at HomeShield Pest Control for complete and permanent rodent control services that you can count on.

The Diseases Spread By Mice In Los Angeles County

Perhaps the biggest threat that house mice pose to Los Angeles County homeowners is disease. These rodents have a reputation for carrying all kinds of harmful illnesses into local homes, including: 

  • Hantavirus 
  • Salmonellosis 
  • Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM)
  • Leptospirosis
  • Tularemia 

Even if the mice in your Los Angeles County home don’t carry any diseases directly, that doesn’t mean they won’t cause harm. In addition to the damage they may cause by chewing through walls, electrical wires, or insulation to create nests in your house, mice can also carry additional parasites into your home. Ticks, fleas, and mites may latch onto rodents, and these byproducts of rodents can carry their own diseases or even infest your home and pets.

Can Mice Infect Your Belongings In Los Angeles County?

It’s a common misconception that mice are only capable of spreading disease if you touch them or you’re bitten by one of these rodents. Although that is one way for mice to spread illness, rodents can also infect your belongings as well.

Mice primarily spread disease and bacteria through their urine and fecal matter. As their urine and fecal matter dries and turns into dust, some of these particles can end up in the air that you’re breathing, and you may be infected through breathing in these particles.

Mice also have a reputation for traipsing through their own urine and fecal matter, which they can track on your countertops, tables, or other belongings in your home. It’s not uncommon for house mice to spread salmonella this way, and as you touch and interact with these infected surfaces, you can become sick. Illnesses spread through mouse bites are very unlikely since mice are skittish, and they’re more likely to run and flee than they are to attack. However, if they feel cornered, a mouse could scratch and bite you or a pet.

Will The Mice In My Los Angeles County Walls Go Away On Their Own?

Unfortunately, a mouse infestation – or any rodent infestation – won’t go away on its own without treatment. Once mice have found a place to hunker down and start building a nest, they’re unlikely to leave, especially if they have access to a food source.

Instead of going away, most mouse infestations only continue to grow as the mice in your walls reproduce. Since a bigger infestation can put you even more at risk of damage and disease, the best way to get rid of an infestation is by contacting a professional pest control service for help.

    Homeshield was great to work with!
    “Homeshield was great to work with! My wife and I encountered a really bad termite problem at our new home during the renovation phase, and needed treatment asap so that renovation could resume. Mike drove all the way down for an inspection, and was very thorough in his explanations. He was able to match a competitor's price for the treatment and locked in a day for the following week. Daniel and Elias, the technicians, were very communicative about their ETA and did a good job explaining their respective roles. All in all, a quick and easy process. Thank you, Homeshield!”

    Amazing work! Switched from Terminex as I was tired of having scheduling issues and wanted something eco friendly for my dogs and upcoming baby.
    I definitely recommend trying to get Jose Garcia as your technician as he was very communicative and kept us updated throughout the service process.

    Ben was FANTASTIC

    Ben was FANTASTIC in every way, He came to give me an estimate on my home, was on time, polite, knowledgeable, and extremely professional in how he handled everything. Had 4 other termite co. to give me an estimate, not even close to Ben's expertise, I would give him a 10 if I could. Will definitely use him in all my other projects , they are a lot since I am in real estate and have many clients.
