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!
Mice are smarter than many people realize, and they are especially good at problem-solving. Though they are not nearly as intelligent as humans, their brain structure is similar, which is why they are often used in psychological research.
When left to go about their normal life cycles, a colony of mice can quickly grow to unbelievable numbers. Using traditional methods to eliminate them, like poison and traps, is inhumane and not terribly effective. Poison is also a risk in homes with pets and children. Skedaddle’s removal methods are both humane and effective. Once we remove the mice, our Whitchurch-Stouffville technicians go one step further and seal up any entry points to prevent mice from returning in the future.
Though there are numerous species of mice, residents of our communities are only likely to see just one of them in their homes, the common house mouse. The tiny creatures frequently have burrows outside and come indoors for access to additional food sources. As the temperatures drop and outdoor food sources diminish, they head inside where they can find plenty of sustenance and shelter.
It isn’t unusual for house mice to set up a permanent residence indoors. They build their nests near places where they can get easy access to food and water. They sleep and breed in different areas than where they eat and excrete. In that regard, they are actually quite fastidious and clean. However, they can do a great deal of damage to your home, and when they chew through wires, they create a fire hazard. Their droppings and urine may also contain pathogens that cause illness in people and pets.
Mice are nocturnal, so they are most active when the human residents are asleep.
Mice can squeeze through a hole as small as six to seven millimetres in diameter.
A mouse relies on its senses of hearing, which is far superior to ours, and smell because they don’t have very good eyesight.
Like other rodents, mice have teeth that are always growing. To keep them in check, they have to chew on hard substances throughout the day. In your home, your wires and wooden beams are great options for the mouse but not for you!
