Mice and rats can be controlled by your Tulsa exterminator. Mice and rats are a pest that get into our homes and businesses. Their goal is simple. They are after our food, our water, and a place to shelter in. Mice and rats can carry diseases and will often defecate and urinate as they run, leaving a trail of unsanitary filth behind them. Because of this, it is important to keep them away from your loved ones and out of your homes. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at mice and rats, their life cycle, and what you and your Tulsa exterminator can do to protect your home from these invaders.


Here in Oklahoma the number one way that we see mice enter homes is through the garage door. This large door has a rubber seal at the bottom. They can easily be squeezed through by a mouse. Even if you have an airtight seal, they can make their way in. But often the seals on these doors are weak at best and there’s plenty of places for them to enter. Mice and rats are particularly adept at squeezing down and getting inside small holes. Essentially if they can get their head through a hole then they can make their body fit as well.

Once they make their way into the garage, there’s plenty of clutter usually to hide amongst. They eventually find a way to the hot water heater. In Oklahoma, we often find the hot water heater either in the garage area or in a closet directly connected to the garage. The water from this heater will attract the mice, especially in the winter months. It will usually make its way up the hot water heater with its exhaust into the attic space. Once in the attic, there’s plenty of insulation to use to keep warm and create nests. This is where mice will set up shop. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for help.


Once they set up shop in your attic, they’ll start to have babies and they’ll have them very quickly. Mice can have an enormous amount of young very quickly. Because these animals find themselves at the bottom of the food chain, they have to be able to do this in order for the species to survive. But with all these new baby mice will come many hungry mouths to feed. So in order to feed them, the mice will find their way down the walls and start to scratch at the bottom in order to make their way through the drywall into your home. You’ll often hear the scratching as these mice are chewing on the drywall. Once they break through, they’ll head straight for the kitchen and pantry in an attempt to find food to supply for the young. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for help getting rid of these rodents.
