There’s nothing more satisfying than finally having a mice infestation safely and humanely removed from your home. How do you know that there aren’t others scampering through your wall cavities and attic, though? Explore the answer to this and other questions to see how our Skedaddle Oakville team can help. Don’t let a lack of obvious signs make you think your home is free from mice, but work with a professional team to keep your home safe and comfortable.
Humanely Removing Mice Requires Professional Techniques
Humane removal practices are safer for you and the environment. Don’t resort to poisons that can be harmful to people and pets. If you poison a mouse, it may die in your walls or inaccessible areas of your home. Instead, humane removal helps you safely and effectively remove unwelcome guests without harmful side effects.
At Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control, we follow a comprehensive three-step process to identify any rodent intruders, remove them and restore your home:
- Assess the situation and remove any rodents
- Clear the evidence and clean your home
- Prevent further intruders and protect your property
Sometimes mice can be obvious houseguests. Other rodents like to stay hidden away in the cracks and crevices of your home. It can take days, weeks or even months to realize you have a furry intruder in your dwelling. By the time you see a mouse or spot the signs of one, it may be too late.
We use professional tools and techniques to look for more subtle signs of rodent activity. Once we establish the presence of mice and their likely entrance to your home, we humanely remove them and ensure no other mice can enter. A thorough cleaning removes mouse urine and droppings that can spread disease and cause unpleasant odours in your home.
Proper Mouse Control Takes Patience
Our three-step process can be accomplished quickly, but proper mouse control takes patience. Mice are curious, but they can still be reclusive. Hidden mice can wait for months before they venture out into the living areas of your home.
Thorough mouse removal services take time. We schedule follow-up inspections to check the progress of our mouse control solution. After a few months without any additional rodent activity, you can breathe easy knowing you have a mouse-free home.
Continue to check for signs of mice to ensure another follow up isn’t needed. Here are some common signs that you may need to schedule another visit from our team:
- Seeing mice
- Hearing squeaking, scratching or shuffling
- Smelling ammonia from mouse urine
- Spotting mouse droppings
If you see any small cracks around your home, chances are they can be mouse entry points. These rodents can fit through a hole the size of a ballpoint pen, so even the smallest cracks around your doors, floorboards and other areas of your home can look like an open invitation for mice.
Most of these signs mean that there is more than one mouse in your home. Seeing mice, smelling urine and seeing droppings are all typical signs that there are multiple furry residents scampering around your home. Whether they are living in your basement, attic or wall cavities, the mice you see are usually accompanied by a few others. This is another reason why it’s important to be patient even when you don’t see any signs of mice.
