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.
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!
For such a tiny little animal, mice instill a great deal of fear in many when they see one scurry across the kitchen floor in the early morning hours. Individually, a mouse poses little threat to a human. They aren’t aggressive; thus, the risk of harm from a mouse encounter is nominal. They are intelligent and curious, and many behaviours they exhibit are entertaining and amusing.
A colony of mice in your home, however, means trouble. The damage they can do is significant, and they have the potential to transmit diseases to people and pets. Removing a colony of mice is not easy. Traps and poisons are not entirely effective and cause harm to your family. With Skedaddle’s humane wildlife removal services, you can take comfort in knowing that we can solve the problem now and prevent future recurrences.
As the name implies, the common house mouse is prevalent in human structures in Thornhill and beyond. They often live between burrows on the outside and within the house walls on the inside, though it is not unusual for individual colonies to establish a full-time residence in a home. Mice prefer to live close to their food and water source.
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.
Mice are rodents, which means that their teeth never stop growing. They have to chew on hard substances throughout the day to keep them from getting too long. This can result in damaged wiring and support structures, creating a safety hazard in your home.
Preventing mice from entering your home requires a trained eye. A mouse can fit through a 6mm opening. A hole that small is easy to miss unless you know what to look for.
A mouse’s brain structure is similar to a human’s, which is why psychologists often study their behaviours.
If mice could enter the Olympics, they would get the gold medal for high jump every time. Some mice can jump twice as high as their bodies are long!
A female mouse gives birth to up to 10 litters per year, and each litter contains between six and eight pups. It isn’t hard to see how a few mice can turn into hundreds in a short amount of time.
