Pest Control Information for Johns Creek
Residents of Johns Creek, GA, know that your home is your refuge. It’s a great place to kick back and relax and let the world outside fade away. But when the world outside starts coming in, in the forms of outdoors pests and bugs, that relaxed feeling can quickly fade.
It’s important that your home is safe from pests and bugs year round. Depending on the time of year, there are different pests to look out for. Here in Georgia, one the pests to worry about in the winter is mice. Due to dropping temperatures, mice will start looking for a warm home in late fall. Don’t let your home become their home.
Mice can enter your home through any cracks or holes in your walls, floors, or foundation. They can also get in through smalls gaps in windows and ceilings as well as through spaces around plumbing and gas lines. Mice are able to squeeze through spaces much smaller than you would imagine, and you usually won’t notice a mouse hole until after you’ve noticed the infestation.
Home improvement stores and online retailers sell a number of solutions that are supposed to repel mice. Some popular items include mouse repellent sprays and electronic sound devices that emit ultrasonic waves to distress mice and cause them to leave. Unfortunately, neither of these methods have any scientific data to back up their claims, and often work poorly or not at all.
The traditional mouse trap is always an option. Spring-loaded traps are set off when a mouse steps on a trigger covered with a small piece of bait. The trap snaps down of the mouse, killing it. Another type of trap is the glue trap. A mouse, attracted by bait, gets caught in an adhesive and eventually dies of hypothermia, since it is unable to move and maintain its body temperature. For homeowners who prefer not to kill mice, there are live-catch traps that lure mice into a box with a small piece of bait and then shut behind them. The homeowner then had to release the mouse back into the wild. Unfortunately, house mice are not native to North America and will usually just return to the home.
Mouse saliva and dropping can carry viruses and bacteria that spread disease to humans. These viruses and bacteria can easily become airborne and so it is important that mouse droppings, urine, and saliva are dealt with properly. Avoid sweeping and vacuuming, as they can send particles into the air, spreading dangerous viruses. Leave nesting materials undisturbed, as these may be full of droppings and urine that carry disease. Proper cleaning requires an OSHA approved respirator, special clothing, and non-absorbent gloves, at least. It is best to leave this kind of work to a professional.
