How can I stop mice from entering my house?
Proofing your property for mice is usually a case of surveying the building structure for defects, such as hole in brick work around pipes, broken air bricks, poorly fitted doors and the like. Mice will detect warm air flowing out from holes in the brickwork and be attracted in. Proofing for mice can be difficult due to the tiny holes they can fit through, however in most cases it is possible.
Whats the difference between a house mouse and field mouse?
Field Mice have distinct features:
A less uniform mouse with a sandy brown fur and a white to grey belly, field mice do not have a very strong smell, their back feet are large which give them a good spring for leaping and their ears are smaller than a house mouse’s.
House mice have uniformly brown-grey fur, right down to the tail and the under belly is a similar colour to the rest of the fur. Typical mouse profile, small feet with big eyes and ears (ears larger that field mouse). And house mice can often be very strong smelling.
How can I tell if I have rats or Mice?
Sometimes it can be difficult to tell without evedence such as droppings or teeth marks on chew cables, rats will obviously be much noiseier and heard running along the rats runs in the loft. Whereas mice are more likely to be heard just scratching and lightly scrabbling around.
Rats also tend to follow a bit of a routine and be heard late at night, where mice can be heard anytime of day.
If rats have been using the loft long enough, it will be clear to see their runs on the insulation and likely to find droppings.
Mouse Control Process
Contact Pest Control
Simply call or e-mail our office, Laura or Claire will give you any advice required and book an appointment for our mouse control experts to visit at a time to suit you.
Our pest control technician will survey the property for signs of a mouse infestation to identify approximate population of mice, entry points, how they are navigating the building and likely food sources. For large properties, landlords and commercial properties and detailed survey will be emailed to you.
Internal Domestic Mouse Control
The initial visit will be the key visit, our technician will identify where the mice are coming from, how they are entering the building and identify the infestation level. Set up the treatment which is usually a non-toxic treatment with traps only and give an estimated length of treatment.
Follow Up Visits
Follow up visits will be at weekly intervals, until the mouse infestation is cleared. During a follow up visit we will check and re-bait traps, collect any mouse carcases if any are found during the visit (all mouse carcases are removed and disposed of via our registered waste carrier) and complete any proofing which may be required.
Commercial Rat Control
Commercial mouse control will usually be carried out as part of a 12 month monitoring contract whereby our pest control technicians will visit the premises monthly as a minimum. Our mouse monitoring contracts are usually based on an initial clearance of mice and then the remainder of the contract will be monitoring for future activity with non-toxic blocks. Then as soon as any mouse activity is seen, the non-toxic blocks can be replaced with traps to maintain a mouse free work environment.
Our pest control technicians will provide recommendations on proofing, hygiene and housekeeping to ensure there are no repeat infestations of mice.
