Many of New York's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving New York's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Peekskill Wildlife Removal Tip: What Should I Do If I Find A Nest Of Mice In The Attic?

If you want to be successful in riding mice out of your home, it is important to find where they have built a nest in your area. You have to run a search operation to locate their home base and then apply accurate mice removal techniques. If you immediately use an aggressive approach to get rid of them by setting traps anywhere in the house, there are chances to face some terrible accidents with pets and kids. Hence, it is good to make a proper analysis about their actual hiding place, and if it is in your attic, you can use some effective treatments to get rid of them as soon as possible.

Some of the most common signs that you have mice in your premises include finding a dead mouse as it means many others are wondering around and you need to look for them fast. You can also check for their footprints or grease marks that are commonly visible in the area where they keep on running frequently. Another common identification mark about mice is there dropping that is usually found to have a length between 3 to 8 mm with rice like a shape. In order to build nests in your attic, they also carry lots of debris, paper, and lint, etc. One of the most obvious signs of their presence is the noise that they make in the night hours. At the same time, you may also observe the stench from the area where they are living in your house.

If you find a nest of mice in your attic, it is good to take the following steps:

Examine the area:

First of all, you need to look for the open holes and gapes that mice are using to enter your house. Mousehole size uses to be somewhere around a quarter of an inch. Mice urine marks can be identified with black light.

Block the entry points:

It is time to seal all the entry holes by using steel wool so that mice cannot chew them again. You can secure these steal wools at once place by using silicon gel. You can also buy some specially designed sealants from market to block the mouse holes to discourage their movements.

Use a trap to capture them:

When you are definite about the presence of mice in your attic, it is good to use a trap to capture them. The idea is to relocate them to some other place where they can find enough sources of food and water. But note that you cannot capture babies using traps; they must be taken out of the nest with hands. Once you are successful in capturing mother mouse, you can carry the babies together to some far location.

Once you take them out of your home, spare some time to clean the mess created by their feces and nest debris. It will help you to make your house safe to breathe again.
