Mice are the most invasive animal in Baltimore and it’s almost impossible to find successful control solutions to manage their population. Most homeowners that attempt to resolve mice infestations on their own usually fail because they do not address the problem entirely. Unfortunately, most Baltimore pest control companies only put out poisons and glue boards which also does not resolve a mouse infestation entirely. They do this because poisons and glue boards are a temporary fix and they don’t want to permanently get rid of a mouse problem so you have to keep calling them back every couple months. If you want to put an end to your mouse problem you need to contact an exterminator that specializes in rodent control. Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control is Baltimore’s leading expert in mouse control. Their technicians fully understand the biology, habits, and habitats of mice. Mice are very intelligent animals and their top priority is to find a habitat that is close to a food source and is safe from predators. Like many rodents, mice become very familiar with their surroundings and tend to use the same trails each day because they know that trail is safe and has worked well for them in the past. Dark rub marks from the oil in the mouse’s fur and urine markings make it easy to identify the trails mice use each day. Exterminators in Baltimore will place poisons and glue boards on these tails but any changes made to a mouse’s habitat or trails will put the mice on high alert and they may avoid the new object or avoid using that trail completely. A couple of mice may eat the poison or walk on the glue board but as soon as the other mice see a mouse struggling to get off of the glue board they will definitely avoid it. Once one or two of the mice die from eating the poison the other mice will wise up and relate the smell from the poison to the smell on the dead mouse that ate the poison. Basically, after a while mice become familiar with poisons and glue boards and learn to avoid them. The photo below was taken at an elderly couple’s home on Hartham Ct, Lutherville Timonium, Maryland 21093. A curio cabinet was moved out away from the wall exposing a mouse trail that leads to a golf ball size hole in the corner. The trail is heavily soiled indicating that this mouse nest has been used often and for a long period of time. The carpet in this home had to be ripped up because it was saturated with mouse urine in several spots along the edges. Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control knows how to get rid of mice by combining a variety of effective methods. They conduct a detailed inspection inside and out to identify the entry points, trails, feeding areas, and nests. Mice will often travel outside of your home using the same holes they originally came in through. New mice will also use these entry points to join the existing population that is currently living in your home. If a few mice die in your home due to poisons or trapping then other mice will surely enter your home and build a nest. The first thing Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control will do is seal the entry points to prevent mice from traveling back and forth and to prevent new populations from gaining entry into your home. They use mouse proof materials to seal the entry points so the mice cannot chew back in the same spot. Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control rotates several different effective pesticides on the interior of the home as well as on the exterior so the mice do not get used to the same poison. They also use several different trapping methods so the mice do not become wise to the same old traps or glue boards.
