With decades of experience, our technicians are equipped to handle any potential infestation and seal your home for protection.

Trusting Skedaddle means trusting a team of experts who have seen it all and know exactly what to do to keep your home free of unwanted guests.
Our experience and expertise came in handy with a call that our technician, Kara Ericson, recently answered at a home in Milwaukee. Our homeowners had put the call into Skedaddle when they noticed mouse droppings and noises coming inside the wall. They suspected there may be an infestation but were perplexed as they had taken the precaution of installing steel screening along the foundation line of their home to prevent entry.
Like many homeowners, our clients had taken excellent precautions but didn’t realize that each home is different and may require custom protection.
Understanding The Needs And Concerns Of Our Customers
As a technician in the pest control industry, one of the most important aspects of our job is understanding the needs and concerns of our clients. That’s why Kara, our technician, started this job by chatting with the homeowners and discussing the procedure she would be conducting.
She started by explaining how she would be looking for possible signs of mice and entryways. This not only helps her diagnose the problem but also allows her to educate the homeowners about potential infestation threats. By explaining her process and taking the time to listen to the client’s needs, Kara ensured that this job was done thoroughly and efficiently, providing peace of mind for everyone involved.
Once Kara finished with the initial consultation with the homeowners and answered any questions they had for her, she started her inspection. She quickly found that entry points to the home had been overlooked when the homeowners had initially set up their animal intrusion protection.
The assessment that Kara conducted included gaining access to the attic and roof outside. This is where she found some cracks in the foundation, allowing some unwanted house guests to get in. She walked the homeowners through her findings and explained where the most crucial points of entry are often located. In the Milwaukee area, older homes can often have spaces on their roofs and attics where mice can easily squeeze through.
Although these homeowners thought they were protected with their steel screening along the foundation line, they didn’t realize mice could gain entry through their roof.
With Skedaddle, you can rest assured that we find the crucial entry points where an animal could enter your home. We involve the homeowners through every step of the process and ensure they understand our preventative process.
Mice Can Cause Extensive Damage
Once inside a home, mice can do extensive damage, so it is vital to seek professional mice removal services as soon as possible. Mice are notorious for quickly infesting homes and spreading at an alarming rate. Once they enter your home, they will breed and build their nests in hard-to-reach places, making them difficult to remove.
Many homeowners resort to snap traps and poisons, but these methods can be ineffective and potentially harmful to humans and pets. On the other hand, our mouse-proofing is more than just a one-time solution; it’s a long-term investment to ensure that your home remains pest-free, giving you peace of mind and a comfortable living space. If you want to permanently get rid of mice and keep them out of your home, mouse-proofing is the way to go!
Skedaddles Humane Mouse Removal
It was evident from the droppings and nesting materials found in the attic that mice had taken up residence in our customer’s home. Kara knew that she had to work quickly to help stop the spread of this mouse infestation to help the family regain control of their home.
She went inch by inch around the perimeter of the house to identify each subtle clue that indicated a mouse entry point and installed one-way doors. These specialized doors allow mice to exit for food while preventing their re-entry.
Once it was determined that all mice had left the home, it was time to focus on cleaning and repairing the home. As no two properties are the same, Kara once again checked in with the homeowners and walked them through the job to ensure they were part of the process. Our technicians got to work, cleaning all droppings and urine, nesting materials, and grease marks left behind.
These tiny rodents are known for leaving droppings everywhere, contaminating surfaces and storing food with harmful bacteria. This is why getting professional mouse removal services is crucial to avoid serious health issues, especially if you have children or pets at home. It’s not just about cleanliness and aesthetics. The health concerns that mice raise could have long-lasting and devastating effects on you and your loved ones.
At Skedaddle, we don’t just stop at cleaning. We take the extra step to repair any damage left behind by the rodents. Mice can cause extensive problems in a home, including chewed electrical wires, holes in walls, and even structural damage. We have a team of professionals who are trained in home repairs to leave your home as though the mice had never been there!
The next step in our process involves ensuring that mice cannot return.
Keeping Animals Out Of Homes With Custom Protection
Homes are unique, just like humans themselves. Each one has its character, charm, and individual quirks. Because of this, preventing animal intrusion into homes is not a one-size-fits-all task. Animals can find their way into homes through various entry points, are attracted to different types of food, and are deterred by different types of repellents. Therefore, ensuring that animals do not make their way into your home requires a tailored approach based on your home’s specific features and potential weaknesses. It is essential to assess your home’s situation thoroughly and identify the potential entry points to keep animals out effectively.
This is where our technicians like Kara shine! With over 30 years of experience successfully excluding mice from all types of properties, we understand how to protect your home from unwanted guests.
Mice may be small in size, but they can cause a big problem when it comes to infesting homes. They are notorious for finding points of entry into living spaces, such as weep vents between bricks, poorly sealed window casings, utility lines, and gaps in building materials. What’s even more alarming is that mice only need a 6-millimeter-sized hole to squeeze their body through, and many homes have these gaps from foundation to roofline. This is where our expertise comes into play.
Keeping your home mouse-free can be a challenge, but with the right approach, it’s definitely achievable. By combining our understanding of mouse behavior and our knowledge of housing construction, we have become the leader in ensuring your home is free from a mouse infestation- big or small.
Our wildlife exclusion service uses a combination of heavy gauge steel screening and our exclusive wildlife exclusion sealant to thoroughly seal all potential entry points around your home, preventing mice from finding their way back in. With our expert techniques, you can have peace of mind knowing your home is truly mouse-free.
