Assess and Remove

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.

Clear and Clean

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.


Prevent and Protect

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.



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 Richmond Hill

Out in nature, mice have their place within an ecosystem. They serve important functions as prey for a wide variety of animals, from weasels to bears. They are keystone species that form the connection between plants and animals in every environment. But, in a house, they become destructive and can spread diseases to the people and pets living there. Though they make great pets, the wild variety does not belong inside your walls.

At Skedaddle, we recognize a mouse’s purpose out in nature. We believe that even though they are hazardous in human environments, they should be humanely removed and relocated to a more suitable habitat. What’s more, our techniques are more effective and produce long-term results. We remove all of the mice in the house, and then we seal off entry points to prevent future invasions. With this final step, our team addresses the whole issue rather than just focusing on the immediate problem.

Not every species of mouse is attracted to the food and shelter our houses provide. In Richmond Hill, homeowners are most likely to discover the common house mouse in their homes, though occasionally field mice also set up camp inside the protective shelter of our human-made structures. Though mice are shy and make every attempt to avoid confrontation with people, they do like the easy access to food and water inside a home, particularly in the winter months.

Once a handful of mice discover the bounty your residence provides, they generally make it their own and get to work establishing a colony. Mice are prolific breeders, and a few animals become a nightmarish number before most homeowners even recognize that they have a problem. Unfortunately, in the meantime, they are chewing up wires — creating a fire hazard — and insulation and gnawing away at wood and narrow-gauge aluminum. The Skedaddle Richmond Hill team identifies the issues that result from a mouse infestation and recommends the measures needed to fix them.

Mouse Facts


Mice can transmit several diseases through their feces and urine. After our team removes the mice, they clean up and clear out contaminated areas and materials.


Though these rodents have the potential to spread diseases, they are not actually dirty creatures. Mice are particular about where they do their business, keeping their bathroom facilities separate from their living quarters.


A female has between five and 10 litters every year, beginning at the tender age of eight months. The average litter contains six to eight pups.


There are mice living on every continent on Earth, even Antarctica! They have made their way to the coldest locations travelling as cargo on human transport and manage to survive in the manmade structures in these locations.


It takes a trained eye to spot all potential mouse entry points in a home since these rodents can fit through a six-millimetre opening.
