Pests We Treat Case Studies: Mice Using the Front Door in Skillman, NJ
A new customer in Skillman, NJ contacted our office after finding mice droppings in her laundry room! We were sent out to inspect and treat. When we started inspecting the home, we noticed that there was one gap underneath the back door in the laundry room. All a mice needs to infest your home is an opening the width of a pencil!
We continued our inspection and found another gap underneath the front door and mice droppings near it. We took a closer look and noticed that the door sill was damaged.
We carefully cleaned up the mouse droppings and then installed several rodent bait stations in the laundry room, by the front door, and outside around the home. Next, we placed Xcluder® Rodent Proof Door Sweeps under each door. Xcluder® door sweeps feature Xcluder fill fabric, providing a barrier impenetrable to rodents and other pests, along with a durable weather seal that can pay for itself in energy savings. Lastly, we scheduled several follow-up visits to replenish the bait stations and monitor the mice activity.
This small opening is the perfect size for mice to infest this building.
Here's another gap by the back door.
