A Little About House Mouse Extermination
Nest Pest Control Has Killed & Removed Thousands Of Rats, Mice & Other Rodents In Virginia!
Mice have been causing problems for people for thousands of years. Millenia ago, they would decimate fields, eating the crops that people had grown and could potentially cause starvation. We domesticated cats and bred dogs to help with this problem, but that didn’t stop mice from pestering us.
Later, the diseases that mice and rats carried made us very sick. Whether it was from bubonic plague or simply salmonella or hantavirus, mice and rats and other rodents really made it hard for people to live and breathe freely.
These days, mice and rats are still a problem, even though most of the diseases they carry are manageable. So we at Nest Pest Control still take our role as mice exterminators seriously and are dedicated to helping you breathe an easy sigh of relief that the mice haunting your house are gone.

Mice carry many diseases. Let us exterminate them for you.
Nest Pest Control is the Mice Exterminator!
Mice are prolific in their capability to reproduce. They can reproduce as young as two months old, give birth in less than three weeks after mating and will usually have five to seven pups. Common house mice have been known to have twice that many, though. A single pair can produce up to sixty mice in a year!
Actually, the worst thing about mice is the disease they carry. All types of bacteria, including salmonella, are carried from place to place by these little pests.
We have been exterminating rats and other pests in Arlington for years!
Rats are useful creatures to people. They have a lot of the same genetics and react to many drugs and other medical procedures the way people do. However, a wild rat is something else entirely. These are your house’s worst nightmare. They chew through wires, wood, plastic and insulation to build nests. This causes everything from minor annoyances to major property damage in the form of fires and floods.
Whether they are crawling the sewers and carrying all the disease in those places or they are in a field and simply devastate a crop, these creatures can really cause problems. Here in Arlington, we have Norway Rats (pictured) Roof Rats and Black Rats. Those Norway Rats can grow up to almost a foot in length, not including the tail!

Did you know…
Although common brown rats can grow fairly large, they are often around a half pound in size, just 6 or seven inches long on average. Gambian pouched rats grow much larger, up to 3 feet, and have been known to carry monkeypox, which is spreadable to humans.
Gambian pouched rats can be very useful to people, though, and one, named Magawa, has received a hero medal for his service in sniffing out 71 landmines and 38 items of unexploded ordnance in Cambodia. How’s that for a useful animal?
A lot of people have questions about mouse extermination, pest control and our company. Here are a few that you might have:
How do mice and rats spread disease?
Both rats and mice transmit disease through hair, droppings and urine. For instance, did you know a single mouse can create 40-100 droppings per day?! If you touch any surface that has touched these things (or even their feet, which go through a lot of trash and other diseased places) then you can potentially contract that disease. It is important to sanitize the area after exterminating mice so you do not get sick later.
Rats and mice occasionally bite, too, though it is not common at all. All sorts of diseases are transmitted through rodent saliva, often simply called rat-bite fever. Also, some people become sensitive and develop allergies to rats, mice and their excrement, etc.
What if I just put out a bunch of mouse traps?
Placing traps is a great place to start and can be effective if you catch the mice or rat right away. However, because of their prolific breeding, a small problem can become a large one in a very short time.
Additionally, trying to control a rat or mouse infestation on your own can be dangerous. You’d need protective gear, including masks, gloves, eye protection and more, plus all the rodenticide and traps to capture a large colony.
Indeed, the most effective rodent control means using an integrated approach. Simply putting out poison isn’t enough. Good rat and mouse control requires rodent proofing, harborage reduction (finding and eliminating places where they can easily nest), trapping the animals and increased sanitation.
For the most comprehensive solution, call Nest Pest Control, a professional pest control company including for mouse extermination.
