Pests We Treat Case Studies: Mice Running Around Commercial Building in Pennington, NJ
Recently, we were sent out to a commercial building in Pennington, NJ to handle a mice problem. As we began inspecting the kitchen area we found mice droppings near a utility pipe that had a gap around it. One thing you need to remember about mice is that they can fit through an opening the size of a dime!
Continuing our inspection, we noticed that there was a lot of discarded food underneath and behind the equipment. Not only did we find food debris in these areas, but mice droppings as well!
First, we carefully cleaned up all the mouse droppings throughout the area. Next, we stuffed all the gaps and openings throughout the exterior and interior of the building with stainless steel mesh and then sealed them in place with a waterproof, premium adhesive. Once we finished, we installed several rodent bait stations throughout the interior and exterior of the building.
Afterward, we spoke to the owner and mentioned a few simple sanitation methods to prevent mice and other pest from infestating his business. Lastly, we scheduled several follow-up visits to monitor the infestation and replenish the bait stations until the mice are no longer present in the building.
Not only did we find discarded food behind the equipment, but mice droppings as well!
Here's where we found most of the rodent droppings.
Poor sanitation will almost certainly lead to pest problems.
