Mouse in the house? You're not alone as Minnesotans seek out help
Mice are invading Minnesota homes, sending exasperated and sometimes embarrassed residents in search of poison, traps and repellents.
“Almost every fifth person coming into our stores is looking for mouse poison,” Mike Frattallone, part owner of 21 Ace Hardware stores in the Twin Cities, said this week.
As temperatures slide down and Minnesotans admire fall colors, mice are scurrying about in search of a nice, comfortable place to spend the winter. Although they can get inside anytime during the year, they’re more likely to come in when they’re stressed — when it’s too hot, too wet or too cold, said Todd Leyse, part owner of Adam’s Pest Control.
