Chicago is a great place to live. There are many good reasons to live in Chicago, and mice agree. Since its inception, Chicago has had a mouse problem because mice thrive in urban environments. If you have a home in the area, you will have to deal with mice sooner or later. Unfortunately, mice love chewing on wires and cables, especially behind walls, which can lead to expensive repairs. Mice can also track diseases into your home, jeopardizing your health and safety.

Don't let a mouse problem in your Chicago home cause damage and threaten your health. Aerex Pest Control has been helping area residents get rid of mice for over 70 years. We are known for quality pest control in Chicago.

How Can You Tell If It's Mice In Your Home?

A mouse infestation can cause you a lot of grief. Mice can get into your food and damage your home. Given the serious nature of having mice in your house, here are some ways you can tell if mice are present:

  • Holes in storage containers: Mice tend to explore closed containers by chewing holes in them. This damage is especially notable with stored food, leaving a definite sign of mice.
  • Mouse droppings. Mouse droppings look like small, dark grains of rice. If you have mouse droppings in your home, it's a sure sign. Look for droppings near food storage areas.
  • Signs of mouse traffic. Mice tend to follow the same routes during their travels and, in time, will leave stains and smudges along their routes. Signs of traffic mean active mice.

These are a few signs of a potential mouse infestation. If you need mouse control in Chicago, contact Aerex Pest Control. Our specially trained technicians know how to get rid of mice.

You Don't Have To Touch Mice For Them To Make You Sick

Mice love exploring; some of their preferred areas are garbage heaps and sewers. Mice can pick up salmonella, giardia, and E. coli in these areas. Then, when mice enter your house, they can track them onto your counters, dinnerware, furniture, and floors. When you come into contact with these areas later, you may come in contact with dangerous bacteria and pathogens. You do not have to touch a mouse to come into contact with dangerous, disease-causing bacteria. In fact, you do not even need to see a mouse; just breathe in the air-borne particles from their dried feces.

Mouse control is essential to keep your home safe for you and your family. Aerex Pest Control understands, and we are only a call away. Call us today for help with mice.

Why It Is So Hard To Get Rid Of Mice On Your Own

Mice are wary pests. They can sense danger approaching from a long distance and move quickly to escape it. Mice can run quite quickly for their size and can jump, too. Worse, mice are communal pests capable of fast reproduction. As their population grows, mice move into other areas of the home. Small mouse infestations grow quickly, and by the time you discover them, you might have a major infestation on your hands. DIY efforts might get some of the mice in your home, but they won't get rid of all of them, and if you miss some of them, the infestation can quickly regrow.
