You can’t resolve a mouse problem if you don’t know how they’re getting in. We begin with a thorough 50 point inspection of your home’s exterior and interior to identify all mouse entry points. We then remove the mice using expertly installed one-way doors that allow the mice to leave for food but prevent them from getting back in.
Mice are messy, leaving droppings and urine behind wherever they go. Skedaddle offers cleaning and sanitizing services to safely remove harmful mouse droppings and contaminated building materials to return your home to a liveable state.
The results from our initial home inspection will provide us with a full understanding of what areas of your home needs to be sealed against future mice infestations. Our wildlife technicians will use professional grade wildlife exclusion materials to prevent any possible re-entry and keep mice out.
Mice are some of the most common wildlife found in houses throughout Canada. Rapid reproduction, clever intruders and discreet housemates, mice are often virtually invisible until you have a significant infestation. Find out how our local Skedaddle team in Barrie can help you remove unwanted rodents and keep your home safe.
Thankfully, you have a local team of specialized wildlife control technicians in Barrie. At Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control we take the necessary steps to care for you and your home. A thorough assessment and humane removal, comprehensive home cleaning and clearing of mouse droppings to name a few. Each of these steps is performed using our proven strategies to take care of mice and protecting your household. If you spot a single mouse or mouse droppings around your home, there’s likely to be a number of them hiding in your wall cavities, basement or other areas of your home.
While not as damaging to your home as larger wildlife, mice are still known to chew wires, damage insulation and scratch holes in drywall. In addition to physical damage, they’re also particularly dangerous to your health. Diseases like Salmonellosis, Hantavirus and Lyme disease are a few common illnesses that mice carry.
The type of mouse that Hamilton residents are most likely to see in their home is the common house mouse, though field mice are also known to find their way inside on occasion. House mice are active all year long. They do not hibernate or enter a state of torpor. In the warmer months, mice seek their food sources outside, but in the winter months, food sources are scarce. It is during this time that there is the potential for evidence of mice to turn up as they seek sustenance inside the home, leaving their droppings behind.
These health concerns come from direct contact with mice, contact with mouse nest materials or feces. Mouse droppings can be present throughout your home and are difficult to properly clean. Schedule a cleaning and sanitation service from our team at Skedaddle to prevent the spread of one of these harmful diseases.
Mice are notoriously fast breeders and sneaky residents. They move quietly, gather food cautiously and rarely cause a fuss until there are many hiding throughout your property
It’s not true that mice only thrive in dirty or unsanitary environments. Even well looked after homes can have mice living in the walls or attic because most homes are not built to be mouse-proof.
Mice are excellent climbers and will make their way into openings along the roofline as well as ground level.
