Mice in New York City
The house mouse (Mus musculus) is one of the most common indoor pests in homes, apartments, and businesses, especially in dense urban areas like New York City.
Mice cause all sorts of trouble, such as gnawing on walls and furniture, chewing electrical wires, and contaminating food. These small rodents can live for up to 18 months and produce anywhere from 36–192 offspring per year. They are often found in or near the kitchen, which provides them with food sources and entry points around utility lines or behind appliances.
If you suspect the presence of mice, taking action quickly can stop the problem from getting worse. At MMPC, our experienced exterminators help you identify how they enter your space, find out where they nest, and eliminate mice and rodents for good using eco-friendly methods and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles.

Treatment and Assessment for Mice
MMPC is known for our comprehensive approach to mouse and rodent control. Our treatment and assessment service combines baiting and trapping methods with a thorough inspection of the underlying causes that lead to mouse infestations. This service is recommended for new clients
- Our assessment helps identify viable entry points where mice may be entering, potential nesting sites, areas of activity, and the level of activity (low, medium, or high).
- To control existing mouse populations, we install tamper-proof rodenticide bait stations, and when appropriate, traps for monitoring.
- Clients receive an electronic report with photos and an outline plan of action when possible.
Baiting and Trapping for Mice
Our mouse baiting and trapping services aim to control mouse infestations within residential and commercial properties using eco-friendly methods. We target areas where mice are most active and where control measures will be most effective.
- Rodenticide bait stations are strategically placed in areas of high activity. Mice bring the poisoned bait back to their nests, leading to a dramatic reduction in population.
- Bait stations are tamper-resistant to minimize risk to humans and pets.
- Traps may be used in conjunction with baiting to target individual mice quickly. They are placed along known pathways or near nesting sites and checked regularly for activity.
Proofing and Exclusion for Mice
The best way to eliminate a rodent infestation is to stop them from entering your space. Our specially-trained pest exclusion technicians seal or repair entry points using a combination of construction-grade materials such as ¼” steel mesh, thin set cement, thin gauge steel wool, and clear and white caulk. Common areas where proofing is needed include:
- Mechanical lines in the kitchen
- Mechanical lines in the bathroom
- Mechanical lines along the radiators or PTAC
- Mechanical lines behind the appliances
- Mechanical lines behind concealed areas
- In between walls and baseboards
- Gaps underneath doors
MMPC’s mouse exclusion service comes with a 90-day guarantee. Our rodent proofing team is available for on-site inspections or other treatment needs weekdays from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I have mice?
If you suspect you have mice in your home or on your property, taking action quickly can stop the problem from getting worse. In fact, even one mouse can indicate a larger problem. Mice typically hide in walls, attics, basements, and behind appliances. Look for common signs, such as:
- Mouse sightings
- Droppings (small, pellet-shaped)
- Gnaw marks (especially on wood or wires)
- Scurrying sounds
- Musky odors
How do I clean up dead mice and their droppings?
Mice can carry diseases like hantavirus and salmonella, so it’s recommended to let professionals handle trapping and removal. If you need to clean up dead mice or their droppings, be sure to wear rubber gloves, spray with disinfectant, and use a sealed bag for disposal. Do not sweep or vacuum mouse droppings until you have wet the area with detergent or bleach to avoid sweeping dust containing viruses into the air.
Consult local regulations or waste disposal services for further guidance. The New York Department of Health guidelines recommend placing dead rodents and droppings into a sealed plastic bag, placing that bag into a second sealed plastic bag, and disposing it with your regular trash for pick up by the Department of Sanitation.
How much does mouse extermination cost?
The cost of mouse extermination services varies depending on the size and complexity of the infestation. Please contact us for a customized quote.
Are rat extermination services safe for pets and children?
At MMPC, we prioritize safety for pets and children by tailoring treatment plans with eco-friendly and low-toxicity options. We use tamper-proof bait stations and pet-friendly traps whenever possible to minimize risks.
How long does it take to get rid of mice completely?
The time it takes to completely eliminate a mouse infestation varies based on location, severity, and other conditions. Our knowledgeable inspectors and technicians will work with you step-by-step to get rid of mice as quickly as possible while addressing the root causes.
What steps can I take to prevent future mice infestations?
After we perform an initial assessment, our inspector provides recommendations for future mice and rodent prevention, such as sealing entry points and improving sanitation. Here are some crucial steps to deter future infestations:
- Vacuum regularly, paying extra attention to areas along baseboards, behind appliances, and in corners, where mice might leave droppings or build nests.
- Clean up spills and crumbs promptly, and wipe down kitchen surfaces to eliminate potential attractants.
- Store food properly, keeping all food (including pet food) in airtight containers (preferably metal or glass).
- Secure garbage in lidded trash cans and dispose of garbage regularly.
- Eliminate clutter in basements, attics, closets, and garages.
- Fix leaky pipes and faucets to remove potential water sources for mice.
- Inspect your home for entry points and seal any openings larger than a dime with caulk, steel wool, or appropriate patching materials.
- Ensure weatherstripping around doors and windows is intact and replace if necessary. Install tight-fitting door sweeps to block gaps at the bottom.
