What kind of mice do I have?
Two types of mice are common in St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Jefferson County, Lincoln County and Warren County. The house mouse is a smaller rodent that has a slightly pointed nose; small, black, somewhat protruding eyes, larger ears and are nearly hairless. They are generally grayish brown with a gray or buff belly. The deer mouse has white feet, usually white undersides and brownish upper surfaces. Their tails are relatively long, sometimes as long as the head and body. Their tails are also sharply bi-colored. In comparison to house mice, deer mice have larger eyes and ears.
Are they dangerous?
Yes. The deer mouse transmits the potentially fatal Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. The disease can be transmitted through contact with mouse carcasses, or by breathing in aerosolized urine droplets of infected deer mice. Micro droplets of mouse urine can cause allergies in children. Mice can also bring fleas, mites, ticks and lice into your home.
Why do I have them?
Mice are commensal rodents; that is, they share space with humans and partially depend upon us to survive. They require food, shelter and water in order to survive and therefore are always looking for them. They can enter a hole less that 1/4″ in diameter. Most structures are not sealed properly, leaving many entry points for rodents.
How do you get rid of them?
Getting rid of mice can be a tricky task as they are very elusive. It requires extensive mouse knowledge, as well as construction and safety know-how. That’s why we employ experts with construction and repair skills. Our rodent control service includes the necessary removal, exclusion and cleanup services needed, for one fee.

Around the Clock Pest Control uses the least amount of material possible while still evicting the mice. We will use baits, glueboards, and snap-traps for treatment. We follow very stringent guidelines for the use of the product so that is poses no threat to people or pets. All products are registered by the EPA and Around the Clock Pest Control will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken.
