Mouse Control In Omaha
The mouse rodent is remarkably well-adapted for living year-round in homes, food establishments and other structures in Nebraska.
Homeowners are especially likely to notice them during winter, following their fall migration indoors in search of warmth, food and shelter. Once mice get into your home they can be extremely difficult to control.

Reasons To Control Mice
Although most people consider mice to be less objectionable than rats, mice are more common and cause much more damage. Mice produce continuously, as many as 6-10 litters per year. The greatest economic loss caused by mice is that of the items that have to be thrown out due to damage and contamination. Food, clothing, furniture and many other household items are contaminated by their droppings and urine, or damaged by their gnawing. Mice also can transmit diseases, most notably salmonellosis (bacterial food poisoning) when food is contaminated with their droppings.
Mice are nocturnal creatures so they are rarely seen by the homeowner. The most obvious indicators of their presence are droppings (1/8 – 1/2 inches long, dark and pointed at both ends). Compared to rats, mice only forage short distances from their nest – usually not more than 10-25 feet.
Tactics For Control
The best way to control mice is to prevent there entry. Mice are able to squeeze through cracks as small as the width of a dime. Good sanitation and food storage practices are helpful in reducing problems with mice.
