Skedaddle Mice Removal in Victoria. skip to main content



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.

Ahhhh…. the peace of mind that I have gained from Skedaddle’s work is wonderful! To not have to worry about vermin returning to the house and having a lifetime guarantee really means a lot. The men who did the work were right on time and worked very hard. Highly recommend this company!

After getting fairly vague advice from a different pest control company for a rodent problem, I called Skedaddle (in Victoria) who came out and did a very thorough initial assessment of the house (found twice as many entry points as the other company), then came back in a very timely manner to give our house the Fort Knox treatment as they call it.

Mice in Victoria

Mice may seem harmless, but they can cause extensive property damage and spread diseases once they are inside a home or business. They also breed quickly, which is why it is important to call us for mice removal in Victoria at the first sign that they are present in your home. Victoria is surrounded by water, pushing growing mice populations further and further into rural communities and commercial areas. Oak Bay, Esquimalt and Sidney are found between the water’s edge and commercial areas, making them a prime location for mice to settle and nest. Mice are also known to thrive in condensed areas that allow them to move from building to building with ease and find large amounts of food. Areas like Central Saanich where residential areas are close knit, mice thrive in great numbers. If you are experiencing mice problems in Victoria, Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control is here to help. Our friendly technicians provide Victoria home and business owners with long-term solutions and preventative measures to any mouse problem – no matter the size.

How Skedaddle Victoria Removes Mice

First, our technicians complete a thorough inspection to find out where mice are nesting in your home. We install one-way doors over the entry points so that the mice can get out, but they can’t come back in. We check for any other holes, gaps or cracks where the mice can get in and seal those up too. Mice can fit through a gap less than a centimetre wide, and our technicians take the time to ensure every gap is filled.

Mice can spread diseases through their urine and faeces. The pathogens may remain even after the rodents are gone. Part of our process of wildlife removal is to decontaminate the places where the mice have been so that the micro-organisms no longer pose a risk to you and your family.

How Mice Get Into Victoria Homes

One of the distinguishing characteristics of rodents such as mice is that their front two teeth never stop growing. To keep them filed down to a manageable level, mice have to keep gnawing on hard objects. You may find tooth marks along baseboards or on furniture, but the most troubling damage may be invisible to you. Mice have been known to gnaw on electrical wires, removing the protective insulation and increasing the risk for an electrical fire. Mice will also use their strong teeth to chew open siding, vents, soffits and even aluminium and concrete materials on the exterior of the home to get inside. However, their small size means they can usually find a small gap or crack on a home to get inside, rather than creating a hole themselves.

Mice do not hibernate, so when the weather begins to cool down in the fall, they need to find a place to take shelter throughout the winter months. The grains and seeds that make up a mouse’s primary diet become unavailable, so they prefer a shelter that offers easy access to food. It is for these reasons that they often wind up in human habitations.

You may think that once the weather warms up your mouse problem is over, however, while mice may go back to foraging for food outside, they will continue returning to their nest to raise their offspring. An adult mouse can have a litter of babies every 21 days, and young mice are sexually mature about six weeks after birth. Therefore, if mice move in during the autumn, their numbers may increase exponentially before spring arrives.

The more mice in your home, the greater the risks involved. Therefore, you should be alert to the signs of their presence in your home and call for mice removal in Victoria as soon as possible. Mice are very adept at avoiding detection, but you may notice teeth marks, shredded material to make nests, and damage to food containers. You may also hear them as they scramble around in your walls. You are most likely to hear this at night when mice are most active.

How The Rodenticide Ban in Victoria Impacts Removal

When most people think of mouse control solutions, poisons and rodenticides are one of the first things that come to their mind. Unfortunately, poisons have a disastrous impact on local ecosystems. Mice will often carry a poison to a new location where another animal can ingest it, which in large numbers can significantly damage a species population. Additionally, mice reproduce at such a fast rate that it is impossible to remove an entire mouse colony from a property simply using poisons. Simply put, poisons do not address the root cause of the problem, they create more.

In July of 2021, the province of British Columbia implemented a temporary ban on the use of rodenticides. The ban was created as a result of the negative impact that rodent poison was having on local ecosystems, since many other wildlife were coming into contact with poison after it was moved by mice or after they ate a mouse that had been poisoned. On January 21st of 2023 the ban will become permanent, meaning that home and business owners in Victoria will no longer be allowed to use poison to resolve their rodent issue. Skedaddle has never used rodenticide poisons, instead we have developed unique removal methods that allow them to leave the home on their own without the ability to get back inside. We understand that after mice are removed if the original entry point is not properly sealed, the problem will return. Skedaddle services are intended to give homeowners long-term wildlife removal services, which is why we are proud to provide Victoria home and business owners with top quality mouse-proofing services, while protecting the local ecosystems.

Why You Need Professional Mouse Removal Services

Professional mouse removal services are critical in order to ensure that every mouse is gone and the home is permanently protected. Even if all mice are removed, if any entry points are left unsealed, a future infection can take place. Other mice in the area can follow the scent left behind by the previous colony and take up their place. Unfortunately, our homes are not built with mice in mind, and both new and old homes in Victoria provide mice with gaps and openings that they can use to get inside. The only way to keep mice out for good is to professionally mouse-proof a property.

During their stay, mice will create costly and hazardous damage. Mice will chew on electrical wires and damage hard-to-reach places like attics, and wall cavities. It is impossible to be sure that all fire and safety hazards have been cleaned after a mouse infestation without the help of professionals who know how to access all of these areas and where to look. On top of all that, removing mice and their droppings can lead to bacterial infections and further contamination throughout the home. For all of these reasons it is best to leave it to the professionals, and get the job done the right way. Contact Skedaddle for mice removal in Victoria that includes decontamination and prevention of future intrusion.

Mice Facts in Victoria


Mice have some pretty impressive athletic skills. Though they are generally between 13 and 18 centimetres long, they can jump as high as 33 centimetres from a horizontal surface! Mice are also capable swimmers, and they can climb vertical walls as long as they have enough texture to grip onto.


Mice are incessant gnawers, and it isn’t just because they build elaborate nests. Their teeth never stop growing, and chewing helps keep teeth sizes in check. Unfortunately, they can do a lot of structural damage, in addition to damage to the wiring and insulation in your home.


The myth that mice like cheese is untrue. Mice are opportunistic feeders and eat whatever is available to them, which is a part of the reason they have successfully adapted urban settings. Given the choice, mice prefer seeds and nuts to meat to cheese.


Female mice have up to 10 litters every year. Each litter contains anywhere from five to 12 pups. The female babies are capable of reproducing by the time they are six to eight weeks old.
