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.

A tiny grey mouse running across the kitchen floor is not a welcome sight. Many otherwise brave individuals shriek in terror and run in the other direction! It doesn’t matter that the mouse is at least as scared of the person as the person is of the mouse. A single mouse poses little threat to humans. They are skittish and shy, preferring to escape rather than attack. The only time a mouse is inclined to bite is if someone attempts to pick it up.
A colony in your house, however, poses significant risks. Taking care of a mouse issue is not an easy task. Using techniques that kill mice is not only inhumane, but they are also quite inefficient when there are significant numbers of rodents residing in your walls. Skedaddle is here to help! Our techniques are designed to safely and humanely remove all the mice from your home, as well as preventing future mice invasions.
Deer, field and house mice are all common in the region of York, but the house mouse is the most likely to set up its home inside your house. These mice sometimes establish two residences, one in burrows outside and the other within your walls. They spend most of their time wherever food and water are most easily accessible. You might not realize you have mice in your home until their numbers are out-of-hand.
These creatures are active when humans are asleep, so homeowners don’t often hear their activities. Mice do a lot of damage and can transmit diseases to you, your family and your pets. They chew on just about anything they can get their teeth on, including wires, wood and narrow-gauge aluminum. Since they are rodents, this chewing is a necessity to keep their constantly growing incisors filed down. Every homeowner should be alert to signs rodents leave — such as droppings in the kitchen drawers and shredded cardboard — and contact Skedaddle as soon as you suspect a mouse invasion.
Mice are great jumpers. Some mice can jump as high as twice the length of their bodies.
Even though we think of mice as dirty animals, they are actually quite fastidious. They maintain separate areas for sleeping, eating and going to the bathroom.
A female mouse has her first litter well before she is a year old. Once she starts having babies, she can have as many as 10 litters per year.
Mice are able to squeeze through openings as small as six to seven millimetres in diametres.
