If you see one mouse chances are you have more than that in your commercial building. This is because a female mouse can have up to 35 babies each year and if you have more than one female mouse in your building then this means you can become infested quickly. To prevent this from happening, below are some tips on how you can get the mice out of your building and prevent them from coming back.
Use Mouse Traps
One of the simplest ways to get rid of mice is to use mouse traps. The simple snap trap works as well as any other type. Simply put a bat on the trap, such as peanut butter, a drop of honey, or even a piece of hot dog, and set the trap where you have seen a mouse. Check the trap daily because they do work well. Remove the dead mouse with gloves.
If you do not want mouse traps around your building or have no where you can put them out of sight you can use an ultrasound device to scare the mice away. This device puts out sound waves that mice hate and over a period of a few days they will look further for another home. This way you will not have to worry about dealing with dead mice, and these devices look much better than a mouse trap. You can find this device at pet stores.
Call a Professional Extermination Company
If you think you have more than one mouse you should contact a professional extermination company. This is especially true because you have a commercial building. You do not want your customers to see even one mouse on your properly. These experts know the habits and social behaviors of mice. They have special traps they can use, as well as rodenticides.
Once they get rid of all the mice in your building, they can then help you prevent them from coming back by sealing crevices, holes, and any cracks. They will also go outside and check the foundation for entry points. The exterminator will then give you some tips to prevent this from happening again.
If you did have a mouse infestation, you should ask the extermination company to come back again. You may even want to set up a schedule where they come to your building on a regular basis. The extermination company can recommend a schedule for you.
