  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Texas'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 Texas's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Kendall county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Boerne animal control for wildlife issues.

Boerne Wildlife Removal Tip: Do mice chew on wires? Why?

The clear simple answer is yes, mice do chew on wires. They do this as a way of regulating the growth of their front teeth from overgrowing out of size. These teeth are characterized by the continuous growth throughout their lifetime and so if the mice do not chew on any material they come across, as long as they are able to, to wear them out. Otherwise, they will be too big to feed with them and also for the head to support them hence will wind up dead.

A mouse will chew through electrical wires, electrical insulations, power cables, thermal insulation and not to leave out car wires. They are very destructive and a single bite to these wires may result in no harm to full destructions in terms of failure.

Problems caused when mice chew on wires include the following.

Instability in power supply due to a disconnection thus causing flickering lights.
Your household may experience power outage due to loosened wiring thus disruption in power supply.
Short circuiting is a common scenario especially when wires are chewed through resulting in unwanted and incorrect connections.
Complete power failure especially when mice chew through wires at or close to the main supply.
Power brownout, whereby the amount of power being supplied is lowered hence not available efficiently.
Fires in households are sometimes caused by exposed wires coming into contact with flammable materials and conductors of electricity.
In cars, mice chewing through engine wires may cause engine failure.
It may also result in indicator lights failing when the wires are chewed and cut through.
Another system in the car which may be affected is the gas supply system. Even a single tiny bite may cause supply problems and leakages which may be fatal as the car may burst into flames. Same applies to petrol.

These effects caused by mice chewing through wires can be reduced or solved in the following conventional ways.

Use of mice repellents such as peppermint on these wires to keep them off.
Insulations should use hard materials that mice cannot get through to them and into the wires.
There is special tape which is made with a repellent material that mice usually avoid. This mice resistant tape can be included on an entire wiring system or just used on repairs to avoid re-destruction.
Another way is to use guards and shields, with small diameters to prevent mice from accessing cables.
Use of steel wool in cars and also to seal holes in homes. Mice hate chewing on this material since it bruises their nose.
Have a cat or mimic one. Make sure its presence is felt in the mice activity areas.
