These rodents can be a serious health risk, particularly in kitchens or where children play, due to the diseases mice can spread as they search for food and shelter. They can also significantly damage your home and furniture by constant gnawing, and have been known to chew through electrical cables.
Our BPCA certified, local, friendly and knowledgeable technicians provide convenient, effective solutions to eliminate mice from your home or garden, whilst ensuring the safety of your family and pets.
The ammonia-like smell associated with mice is particularly strong in enclosed areas such as loft spaces. Droppings are often found in areas of high activity - in cupboards and under sinks. Shredded materials such as fabrics, newspapers or clothes can indicate a nest. For more detailed information on recognising signs of mice activity in your home visit our mice infestation page.
Mice have soft skeletons and can get through gaps the width of a pencil, so it is important to seal any holes to the exterior (for example around pipe work) and fit protective strips to doors.
Where possible, store food in strong, airtight containers and regularly clean under cupboards, cookers and other appliances to remove opportunities for mice to feed.
An ultrasonic repeller emits an uncomfortable sound only rodents can hear and may help as a deterrent, but we do not recommend them for existing mice infestations as they can quickly become used to the sound.
Our experienced technicians provide highly targeted treatments to quickly and safely deal with mice problems and can offer advice on how to keep your home free of rodents in the future.
We offer a range of DIY products designed to deter mice in low risk areas. They include live capture mouse traps (a humane way to remove mice) and traditional wooden traps which are easy to set but require bait, such as chocolate spread or peanut butter to attract mice. Professional help will be needed for more established colonies or where there is a repeated infestation of mice.
As with all pest control products, please read the instructions carefully to ensure safe and effective use.
