What are the signs of a mice infestation?
Mice are one of those pests that leave a lot of evidence behind. From bite marks to nasty brown “presents”, if you start a scavenger hunt for signs of a rodent invasion, you’ll definitely find a lot to go by. Here is what to look out for:
- Brown “presents” - If you spot random, dark, small and brown “gifts” located along the walls or under the sink, there is a big chance that a mouse has left them after it’s dinner.
- A nasty smell - A strong ammonia smell just magically appearing in your home can be a good indicator for a rodent infestation.
- Footprints - Look for tiny paw prints located in generally dusty areas around your property like the attic or basement. If you suspect that a mouse has been running through your living room, for example, try sprinkling a bit of flour to uncover potential footprints.
- Nests - Inspect your property for mouse houses made from shredded newspaper or fabric. The most likely places for a rodent nest is under floorboards, behind your fridge, in the wall cavity or under a cupboard.
- Weird noises - If you start hearing scratching noises in the middle of the night, don’t worry, you don’t have a poltergeist. Mice are most active during the night hours, so a weird noise coming from behind the wall is a sure sign of an infestation.
- A live, breathing mousse - If you see a mouse grocery shopping in your pantry, well, you have a very good reason to call a pest control technician ASAP.
The tree steps for mice control
A trained and experienced pest control specialist will arrive at your property for the scheduled treatment. He will bring all the necessary extermination products, tools and materials for the job. His first task will be to inspect the entire property, in order to determine the seriousness of the infestation and find all of the mouse nests. If the technician locates any entry points in the structure of your home, he will seal them to prevent a future infestation. Once the pest controller has completed this part of the service, he will proceed with the extermination treatment.
The next phase of our service includes setting bait stations for the pesky mice. This type of pest won’t miss the chance to munch on something delicious, so you can be sure that the bait will work. Once the little critter has had its deadly meal, the mouse will flee the house looking for water, thanks to the effect of the poison in the bait. You can rest assured that your home will be completely pest-free in about 3 weeks.
If you are dealing with a serious mouse infestation, we highly recommend booking our guaranteed 3-month pest control treatment. The service package includes a property inspection, one main treatment, and two additional follow-up visits from a Fantastic pest control specialist. If you need more information on how to prevent mice from attacking your home in the future, the professional will be more than happy to share his advice with you.
Mice prevention advice
If you want to avoid having a mouse family moving inside your walls, again, you can try the precautionary measures we’ve described below:
- If you have any existing tiny cracks and holes located on your property’s exterior, make sure to seal them, so the rodents can’t use them as entry points;
- Use caulk or steel wool to fill cracks and holes around the piping in your house;
- Store dry food in plastic containers, in order to avoid attracting not only mice but other types of a pest, as well;
- Take care of any clutter you might have in your home, such as magazine piles and unopened mail;
- Make sure to regularly check your attic and basement for signs of mice presence;
- Rodents like to live near a water source. Make sure to eliminate any leaks in your property.
How long will the service take?
We can’t give you an exact estimate, because the duration of our extermination services highly depends on the size of your home, the severity of the infestation, and on other additional factors.
Is there a chance for the mice to die in my house?
The bait that the technicians use is impregnated with a special poison that doesn’t cause the mouse to drop dead immediately after consuming it. The product leaves the rodent feeling dehydrated, causing it to leave the property in search of water. All of this being said, the chance of finding a dead mouse in your home is rather unlikely.
Is there any preparation work that needs to be done before the arrival of the exterminator?
Yes, it’s a good idea to remove any traps you’ve placed in your home. The same applies to other types of DIY mouse control methods, you may have intended to use.
