Tried & Tested Mice Control Services in Melbourne
If you are experiencing problems with mice, then you should act as soon as you notice the signs. Mice breed extremely quick, with a female mouse giving birth to up to 80 mice in a year. These home-invading rodents can cause significant damage to your property. Like eating through insulation and electrical wiring for instance. In some cases, mice can also be a threat to your health.
Тurn to Fantastic Pest Control in Melbourne and let the mice control experts handle the situation. We use the latest professional pest eradication methods and equipment to identify, assess, and deal with mice infestations.
How we do it
The mice control begins with a thorough inspection of the property. That allows the vermin control technicians to determine the scale of the mice infestation, locate the nests, and come up with a plan to eradicate the issue.
The rodent control experts in Melbourne are fully equipped to contain the rodent population as they have the knowledge, tools, and if required – the pesticides to do so. Once they are done with the inspection, the pest control teams will:
Seal entry points – One of the most important measures against mice is to cut their access to the property. The pest controller will use materials such as wire wool, sealants and expanding foam to block those tiny holes and cracks the rodents exploit as entry points. Usually, the kitchen is the most vulnerable area, so the specialist will pay particular attention to it.
Place traps and baits – As there might be some mice trapped inside your home after all those small entry points are sealed, the pest controller will put different traps, and possibly some pesticides, to deal with the remaining critters.
All of that will be done safely and quickly, effectively getting you rid of the mice in 3 to 4 weeks.
If you have booked a guaranteed rodent control service, then you can take advantage of up to two additional treatments for a period of 3 months after the initial service. This would be especially useful if you are dealing with a serious mice infestation.
And while he is there, the mice removal technician will happily share some helpful advice with you on what measures you can take to prevent future mice infestations.
How Do You Know You Have a Mice Problem?
Physical appearance – Mice are considerably smaller than rats. Their heads and feet are small and their weight is 20 grams on average. Size-wise, a grown mouse can reach up to 20 cm from their nose to the tip of their tails. Their bodies are round and covered in short hairs.
Behaviour – mice usually build their nests near areas with readily available food sources. Mice are nocturnal creatures, meaning they’re most active during the night.
Procreation – mice procreate rather quickly. If you think the rate of 80 per year is nothing to fret about, remember they need about 6 weeks to start mating. Every six weeks, you get about 10 times more mice making babies. You do the math.

Did You Know Mice …
Like rats, mice are also intelligent rodents. They communicate on different levels – vocal and odorous. They can also show their emotions through facial expressions. And because they sense feelings, mice are deeply affected by the emotional state of other mice.
Mice love their homes and contrary to popular belief, they don’t very much like wandering around. Mice would only go as far as three to 8 meters away from their nests only to search for food. When mice infest your home, you’ll often find books, papers, wires, and insulation that’s chewed to pieces. Mice don’t eat all that, they simply use it to build their nests.
Mice have ravenous appetite. They eat between 15 and 20 times a day, which is why they build their nests near a food source. And unlike what you’ve seen on cartoons, mice prefer seeds, grains, and fruit to cheese.
The brains of mice work similarly to human brains. For that reason, mice are used in laboratories as test subjects. Thus, almost all modern medicines are tested on mice before any human trials can commence.
