When I called to book an inspection, I was given a quick booking time. James M came within the window of time, called ahead and was professional upon arrival. He was able to assess the property and give me a plan of action! He was able to provide great solutions to the problem! I would recommend!

Mice in Markham


The house mouse is one of the most common species of rodents in Canada. They are industrious little mammals capable of finding their way into most dwellings with ease. Mice living inside your home are a problem due to their breeding potential. A female has litters five to 10 times a year and births three to 14 pups each time. A colony grows out of control fast. Skedaddle uses humane wildlife control techniques to remove rodents from your home in Markham while protecting their families. Our proven three-step approach clears your home of unwanted animals and protects you from future intrusions.

Mice are seen as a nuisance by humans, but they play an invaluable part in the ecosystem’s food chain for many species. The problem is they are not good houseguests. They transmit diseases and viruses that are detrimental to human health. They do considerable damage inside a home chewing through wiring and walls. Mice constantly sharpen their teeth on the materials inside your home, and this causes fire hazards and serious structural issues over time.

Homeowners in Markham should check for signs of infestations. If a colony has been established, you may smell the odour of feces and urine where there are nests. A house mouse is happy to find a handy food supply, so check cupboards for signs of entry. Mice leave behind lots of droppings as they travel around your house. They carry bacteria to places they roam, so contamination of food sources and living spaces is problematic. Part of Skedaddle’s humane wildlife control process is to clear and clean infested areas. Our wildlife technicians can advise you on the best solutions and make certain your home is healthy for you and your pets.

Mice engage in most of their activities at night when the rest of the house is asleep and less likely to see or hear them. Many homeowners do not realize they have a problem with mice until the population size has grown out of control. A few mice can go undetected, allowing them to reproduce, increase their numbers and do a lot of damage to your home.
