Mice Control in NJ 
Before the exterminator poisons and kills the mice, he searches for possible areas at home where the mice could be hiding. It is important that all the feeding sites and points of entry into the house be identified and eliminated. Otherwise, the same locations will attract other rodents after the current lot has been eliminated.

You are advised to put all your food in tightly closed containers mainly made of glass or metal. You should also dispose and destroy any trashcans at home. Other sources of food such as dirty sinks, kitchen floors, and counter tops must be cleaned. 

The exterminators use a variety of techniques to get rid of the mice. They range from trap glue, physical traps, and baits. The choice of the method that the exterminator will use depends on if there are pets and small children, the possible hideouts of the mice and the level of the rodent infestation at home. Two or more methods can be combined for effectiveness

Reputable exterminators also dispose of the mice once they have been caught or killed. A thorough inspection is also done to ensure that there are no mice left in the hideouts.

Once this is done all the holes, cracks and crevices are sealed with concrete, sealants, or steel. Similarly, any open areas around the gas lines, water and sewerage pipes, and air conditioning vents are also sealed. This prevents easy entry of other groups of mice in the future.  

You are advised to clear any bushes that are near the house and dig compost pits several meters from the house.
