Homes in Granbury have a much higher chance of infestation than homes in other parts of the country. In fact many homeowners do not even know the little critters have set up house until it is too late for a simple mouse trap to do the trick.  

Just during the winter months alone, mice and their other rodent counter-parts will share a home with an estimated 21 million homeowners in the United States.  Typically, mice are looking for food, shelter from the elements (hot & cold), and water.  The extreme summer heat in Texas will send the mice into homes thirsty, hungry and looking for a cool place to nest.  Mice populations increase at an alarming rate, especially when they are nice and cozy inside a homes walls and/or attic space.
