Do you have furry rodent guests you just can’t seem to get rid of? Whether you’ve seen mice in your home or noticed signs of rodent activity, your first instinct was probably to get out the mouse traps. Find out why traps, whether live or less humane alternatives aren’t an effective way to evict mice from your home. Turn to Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control for effective mice removal services in Oakville and surrounding areas.
The Mouse Trap Problem
There are three basic problems with using mouse traps as a removal strategy. One or all of these issues may be why you’re not having success removing mice from your property:
- Mice can outsmart traps.
- You can’t be sure you’ve trapped every mouse in your home.
- More mice can continue to enter your home.
Mice are smart critters. These fast, skittish and cunning little intruders are cautious around new sources of food and new objects in their environment. If you see a mouse in your home, it’s probably already been there for some time. Placing a trap in an area a mouse has already been can make it cautious and fearful. Mice are known to lick traps clean without triggering them, so you may be frustrated with rodents that continue to evade your trapping attempts.
How many mice are in your home? Most people congratulate themselves after catching a mouse or two and put the traps away. Unfortunately, these little critters reproduce quickly, so one mouse in your home is typically a sign that there are many more.
Finally, mice don’t appear out of thin air. Trapping may remove the mice that are already in your building, but it doesn’t address the root of the infestation. A fully grown mouse only needs a hole the size of a dime to squeeze into your home. You need to find a way to seal up your home and close the entrance that these little rodents have found.
Methods To Safely Remove Mice
At Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control, we have the professional tools and techniques you need to safely and humanely remove mice. Whether you have a happy young couple of mice just moving in or an entire colony of furry little tenants, we use long-term removal and prevention solutions that don’t rely on harmful poisons or inhumane traps.
First, we identify the extent of the issue. We create a game plan based on the extent of the infestation and the personal features of your home. Our removal strategies don’t leave mice to die in your walls or attic, which makes the cleanup and decontamination phase easier.
Removing mice is only the first step in the process. These untidy little rodents leave behind droppings that can contain ringworm eggs, hantavirus, mites and other health risks. Mouse urine, nests and scratch marks can damage your home and leave unpleasant odours. Our cleaning strategy also includes home repair and restoration services for your home.
Effective Mouse Prevention Strategies
Once we’ve successfully evicted your latest rodent tenants, it’s time to prevent a future infestation. We use professional tactics to seal up your home, remove any hormonal scent trails and discourage mice from starting a family in your attic, walls or crawlspace.
Prevention strategies are the missing ingredient in most DIY strategies. These services halt the continuous cycle of infestation and removal that many homeowners face.
