If you've been baiting mouse traps and cleaning up their droppings, you're not alone. Local pest control companies say this hot, dry summer has mice looking to get in your home in search of water and relief from the heat.

The invasion of mice into people's homes usually happens later in the year -- not in the middle of July.

"It's about a 26 per cent increase in the call-ins for mice at this point," said Adrian Tyman, the service supervisor of Abell Pest Control's Ottawa branch. "It's usually not so busy for them in the summer months."
