Mice Infestations

Finding mice in your property can be disturbing. Mice can spread disease and cause damage in their search for food and shelter, posing health risks particularly in kitchens and food storage areas. Mice can also multiply quickly which can increase the problem at a rapidly increasing rate.

Taking control of a mice infestation quickly is very important as they can

  • Damage property as constant gnawing by mice can damage insulation, pipes, doors, floorboards & they shred soft items for nesting.
  • Contaminate foodstuffs as pathogens in their urine & faeces can transmit diseases such as Hantavirus & Salmonellosis.
  • Cause damage as they gnaw to squeeze through gaps, their propensity to gnaw and chew on items to control their incisors can mean they are attracted to wood, and electrical wiring which in turn can lead to fire risks along with other maintenance problems.

Check for common signs (droppings, urine stains, holes and signs of gnawing) which will help identify a problem in the early stages to ensure that a fast and effective treatment plan can be implemented as soon as possible. All of our technicians are British Pest Control Association (BPCA) certified ensuring they are trained to the highest level to provide fast, effective and targeted mouse control solutions.

How to stop a Mice infestation in Your Business

The level of risk posed by mice to a business will vary greatly depending on the type of industry, its size and the legislative requirements for pest control services. The business impact of mice is known to negatively affect brand, reputation, customer reviews, employee morale, operational efficiency and ultimately revenue and profits along with potential legal penalties for failing to conform to hygiene standards.

When it comes to pest control, most businesses cannot afford to waste time experimenting with their own versions of mouse control – the risks are too high. Instead, you should rely on a professional pest control service offered by our highly trained and certified technicians. Our pest controllers will help to protect your business, not only short term by eradicating your pest problem, but also long-term against future pest problems and reflect positively on the business from the view of stakeholders, peers and your customers.

Methods of controlling Mice

  • Rodent proofing – Rodent proofing is the most effective method to prevent an infestation from developing by preventing access to the property.
  • Environmental management – Ensuring the property clean and tidy with no loose food or water access is vital to preventing a mouse infestation as it reduces the availability of areas to hide, nest and feed.
  • Rodenticides – Rodenticides are an effective treatment to eliminate mice that may gain access to the property and prevent further infestation.
  • Trapping – Trapping is also an effective way to prevent an infestation from developing, although trapping requires more frequent visits from our pest control technicians in comparison to the use of rodenticides.
