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.

The fear that mice instill is disproportionate to both their size and their demeanor. These furry little rodents are intelligent animals with sharp teeth that can gnaw through wood, wires and low-gauge aluminum, but they are not vicious or aggressive. A mouse won’t bite unless provoked, which can happen when a person attempts to catch or handle a wild one.
You may be tempted to try traps or poisons to rid yourself of a mouse problem, but those methods are rarely enough to take care of the issue, and poison is dangerous in a home with children or pets. You also don’t prevent future incursions with those approaches. Skedaddle wildlife experts in Vaughn use techniques that are safe for you and your family and humane for the mice. We take measures to remove the entire colony, and then we identify the places where mice can enter your home and seal those off to prevent future issues.
There are hundreds of different types of mice, existing in wild and urban locations all over the world. Mice are prolific breeders with hardy appetites. In the wild, this serves ecosystems well. They are the prey to numerous other animals, and they help disperse seeds and aerate the soil. In your home, these two qualities lead to destruction and health and safety hazards.
Though there at least eight mouse species in Ontario, the one Vaughan residents are most likely to find in their homes is the common house mouse. These thrifty little rodents can live in your walls undetected until their population size grows unwieldy. Mice build nests in locations that are protected and near their food and water source. Females use whatever is handy, including insulation, wires, paper and cardboard. Frequently homeowners suspect they have mice when they spot the chewed-up corner of a cardboard box or droppings in the cupboard.
A house mouse can squeeze through a pencil-sized hole. This characteristic makes it easy for them to get inside homes.
