The typical house mouse in NJ can be kept out for good without using baits and poisons by applying proven sealing and prevention pest control techniques. Arkadia – Eco Pest Control specializes in mice control throughout New Jersey. Our licensed exterminators are mice detectives and know exactly where field mice, house mice, or deer mice typically enter your NJ residence and where they can be found nesting. Our pest control technicians will first conduct a thorough mice inspection on the outside of your home, taking note of possible and obvious rodent entrances.

Mice only need ¼ inch gap or opening to enter your home, so all gaps, cracks, holes, and openings bigger than this size must be sealed in order to eliminate mice completely. Arkadia – Eco Pest Control offers these sealing and prevention mice control services. All openings where mice can enter the house, such as cracks, pipe voids, around utility wires, and vents should be sealed shut. Our technicians are well equipped to provide these mice control and prevention services, and will want to seal these areas for you to prevent mice from further intruding on your privacy. This is Arkadia’s first step to mice control and prevention.

Mice control is also an inside job. Our pest control technician will then want to perform an inside mice inspection. He or she will be keeping an eye out for obvious mice nesting areas while thoroughly combing through the structure. Our licensed exterminator will want to look for areas where pipes and wires enter the house, as these are typical ways that mice will use to enter your home. Areas where there are excessive mice droppings are either indicators of well traveled mouse entrances or paths, or can be evidence of a mice nest. Our customers will often call us in the fall and early winter for mice control. This is because house mice will make their way into homes when the weather starts to turn a bit cooler outside. Mice will seek refuge inside warm homes on cold fall and winter nights. Late fall and early winter is mouse control season for us. This is the time of year when we make preparations for combating rodents all throughout New Jersey.


Our friendly pest control technician may also offer advice on other mouse prevention measures that should be taken by the home owner to further prevent mice from wanting to enter your home. The following is a list of some good mice prevention techniques that every New Jersey resident can use to prevent mice infestations.

Garbage should be kept in garbage containers that have tight lids that seal the garbage in completely. Mice and other rodents are always on the lookout for a free meal, so make sure you are not the one supplying it. Make sure all screens, windows, and doors are snug and fit tightly when closed. Doors are especially important, as mice will often enter homes through the bottom of a door if there is enough a space. Door sweeps should be installed if the space is ¼ inch wide or larger. The same goes for garage doors, especially in structures where the garage is attached to the house. Another good idea is to keep dog and cat food in sealed Tupperware containers. These containers are mice and rodent proof and will keep mice from prying their teeth into your pet’s food and contaminating it. Pet food and water should also not be kept out overnight. If mice know that there is a food or water source that is in continual supply, they will get too comfortable in your home and will not want to leave. The same goes for human food. All food supplies should be stored in mice proof containers and never leave food out at night. Arkadia also provides Rat Control services.


Did you know?

The typical female mouse can give birth when she is merely two months of age. Mice are also generally capable of giving birth 6 to 10 times a year or more in some cases. Mice generally like to construct their nests close to sources of food and water and like to prefer to feed 15 to 20 times a day.


A small amount of mouse urine has been known to cause allergies in humans. It has also been scientifically proven that mice can and will spread diseases through bite wounds. Mice waste products can also cause contamination of food and water.
