Mice in my house? But I’m so clean

Mice in my house? But I’m so clean

 

You could have the cleanest house in the block, but that doesn’t stop these little rodents from nesting within the structure of your house. Did you know mice can squeeze in a hole/gap size of a dime? Take a look around your house, you will find many spots that have gaps larger than that. Most common mice species in Ontario are the house mouse and deer mouse. They can nest in your attic, between walls, and basement. Most professionals use rodenticides to control the mice population. This is not a one-time fix method. To identify which species you have and best method of removal, it’s best to consult a pest control professional.

Mice entry points

Most common places where mice can get in are:

  • Gaps under garage door
  • Gaps where the soffit meets the house exterior wall
  • Breathers
  • Missing mortar between bricks

 

Evidence

If you have a rodent infestation, you might have some of the following:

  • STENCH – Smell of mice urine
  • DROPPINGS – Evidence of their droppings on floor, inside cabinets, etc.
  • NOISE – Scratching noises coming from attic, walls, etc.
  • GREASE MARKS – Grease marks where they travel most.
  • DEAD MICE – Dead mice in the attic, garage, basement, etc.

 

Preventative measures

There are preventative measures you can take to help reduce the population in and around your property.

  • Seal any gaps/holes around your property
  • Pack eatables in glass or plastic containers
  • Don’t leave compost waste in garage or around the property

 

 

Should I just try my own mice removal? You can try to buy few snap traps and/or glue traps to lay around but will it really solve your mice infestation problem? Probably Not! Where there is one mouse, there are often more around. It would be a waste of time to try to kill one mouse at a time. You should also remember that mice will learn to avoid your snap traps in time. So you see, this might be a losing battle if you want to use traditional mice removal techniques. That’s where pest control professionals come in. We are licenced by the Ministry of Natural Resources to purchase and use the strongest rodenticides available in the market. This means we can control the mice population quickly before they start to reproduce. This guarantees to keep the infestation under control.
