Fox Pest Control’s Long Island Mouse Exterminator Service

mouse exterminator service

Mice look for warm, dark areas of your home to nest. This can be in the walls, in your basement, or under your refrigerator. Once they’re in your home they will eat whatever they can find and chew their way through plastic, wires and more. Long Island homeowners who have experienced a mouse infestation know that these rodents are not as cute and friendly as they are portrayed in children’s movies. You may see mice scurry across the floor, or if your pets are barking or hissing and pawing under appliances, they might be alerting you of a mouse infestation. Fox Pest Control is here to help. We have years of experience getting rid of mice, and are here to help you feel safe in your Long Island home.

Signs of a Mouse Infestation

You might already know you have a mouse infestation, but here are a few of the most common signs a mouse exterminator would look for on Long Island. 

Droppings

The first sign of a mouse infestation is their droppings. Mice aren’t particular about where they leave their droppings, so they will appear anywhere the mice are hanging out, including the backside of drawers, inside pantries or cabinets, in basements or attic spaces, under water heaters or heating units, etc.

Noises

Mice may make noise at night, usually scurrying sounds, scratching, or squeaking.

Bite marks

Mice are rodents, which means their teeth are constantly growing. They have a strong urge to chew things to wear down their teeth, including wood, cardboard, food containers, or plastic.

Sightings

Although less common than the other signs of mice, a mouse may be seen in the open when looking for food, water, or shelter.

Mouse Control FAQ

HOW DO I GET RID OF MICE?

The best way to treat for a mouse infestation is with preventative measures, such as filling up tiny gaps and cracks around the house, and also fixing cracks in the foundation. Store your food in airtight containers to make your home less appealing to them as well. 

When mice have already invaded your Long Island home, it’s best to call Fox Pest Control to let us help you feel safe and comfortable again. 

WHAT DAMAGE DO MICE CAUSE IN HOMES?

The biggest problem mice will usually give Long Island homeowners is contaminating food and chewing through walls, containers, furniture, fabric, paper, and electrical wiring. If it gets to that point, you know you’d better call a mouse exterminator like Fox Pest Control.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE MICE IN THE HOUSE?

Signs of mice include:

Chewed cloths or paper
Discarded feces
Squeaks, squeals, strange noises, and movements, especially at night
Tiny mouse footprints in dirt or piles of food (eg prints in flour or sugar)
Holes chewed through food containers or in the walls
Unusual alert behavior of house cats or dogs

ARE MICE DANGEROUS?

Even on Long Island Mice can carry diseases like hantavirus, leptospirosis, and salmonella. They can also be covered with fleas or ticks and bring them inside.

HOW DID MICE GET IN MY HOUSE?

Mice have an extraordinary ability to squeeze themselves into tiny spaces. If the outside wall of a house on Long Island has any gaps, a mouse can fit into a hole the diameter of a nickel or smaller.

CAN MICE FIT IN SMALL SPACES?

Mice can fit into gaps or cracks the size of a nickel or even a dime. 

As long as the mouse can fit its little head in a gap or hole, its unique bone structure allows it to pull itself through.

WHY ARE MICE TRYING TO GET IN MY HOUSE?

Once inside your home, mice will look for hiding places with plenty of food and water nearby, so the kitchen or food storage areas are obvious hiding spots.

WHAT DO MICE EAT?

Mice can eat a lot of different sorts of food, especially foods that are high in sugar or protein. With their strong sense of smell, they go looking for foods they prefer, and the typical kitchen is full of them. That’s why it’s extremely important to seal all your food — including pet food — in airtight containers. 

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MOUSE AND A RAT?

Body size. Adult mice are much smaller than adult rats

Feces. Mice feces are brown or black and about the size and shape of rice grains. Norwegian rat droppings are larger and more cylindrical, and roof rat feces are larger and more banana-shaped.

Tails. Rat tails are hairless, whereas mice tails grow tiny hairs. Mouse tails are proportionately longer compared to their body size than rat tails. 

Ears. Mouse ears are more rounded than a rat’s, and rat ears are slightly narrower than a mouse’s.

Body shape. Rats, especially the Norwegian rat, have more of a hunch to their bodies than mice.

5-Star Pestimonials

Carlos from Fox pest control came today and did an amazing job taking down a wasp nest.
The nest was very high but he did what he had to do to get it down anyway.
Carlos was pleasant and helpful and I appreciate him going above and beyond to make sure he got the nest down.

Christy Rapuano

I just had Danny here, and as always he did a great job. Inspects the the outside, treats the grounds, and always ask if there’s any concerns we have. He addressed a hornet issue we have been having. Very pleased with the service.

Rob S

The office sometimes is literally impossible to get in touch with and no one answers the phone. However, when technicians arrive, they do a great job. We’ve had Danny, Michael, and Alyssa come to our home. Danny is always very professional and spends time targeting the correct issues. He also always makes himself available via phone and calls before he’s on his way. Alyssa was unbelievable when she came and spent nearly 2 hours addressing issues we were having that day. We’d recommend giving Fox a try, but you may have issues getting anyone in the office on the phone.

Kim Straus Kornfeld

I can’t say enough about this company. I’ve used them twice and both times they were on time and very professional. Today Carlos came and informed me of everything he was going to do. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything. The job was done in a timely manner as well. I highly recommend

Diana Lopez

Tech Nigel is always responsive and pleasant to work with. Thank you man!

C V

The customer service agents and the technician Mr. Cruz of Fox Pest Control were polite, professional, and very knowledgeable. I thought I had termites but Mr. Cruz explained they were flying ants and proceeded to educate me on the differences. He also explained the services available to me and explained how he would proceed with the pest control on the interior and exterior of my home. I highly recommend this company.
