Do you need mouse control? The most common type of mouse that invades property is the house mouse. Originally from Asia, they have an amazing ability to adapt to most environments, and will readily move in to your home if given the slightest opportunity – a gap of just 7mm is enough for them to squeeze through.
Mice can cause extensive damage to property as a result of their gnawing activities. In addition, they are often carriers of fleas and a wide range of diseases, which can be passed on to humans and household pets. All of this means professional mouse control is a must.
Mice are very versatile when it comes to building their nest. Utilising many different materials, a nest can be made from twigs, shredded paper and even loft insulation. A house mouse is able to reproduce when it is between 8 and 12 weeks old, and the gestation period will typically take just 3 weeks.
Litters can contain as many as 16 kittens, but largely depends on environmental conditions such as food availability and outside temperature. Mice are totally omnivorous, in other words they will eat anything, even down to the soap in the bathroom or the candles you keep under the sink.
Mortality rates are high, but mice will still typically live for 8-12 months, by which time, a breeding pair could have produced up to 2000 offspring.
To assist in neutralising a mouse infestation, Best4Pests will perform a site survey whereby the most appropriate means of pest management will be decided. This can vary from laying poison bait stations to using traps or a combination of different methods. A program of return visits is then necessary to monitor progress. To ensure the safety of customers, Best4Pests only uses professional rodenticides which are unpalatable to humans & provide lockable, tamper proof traps.
The ability of mice to squeeze through very tiny gaps means that in order to keep these pests away from homes a thorough inspection of your property is necessary.
To prevent a mouse problem in the first instance or to deter mice from returning, I can advise on a range of mouse Proofing options to help protect your premises. During a site survey I will advise on how to make possible entry points less accessible, block off holes or protect doorways. Bait stations can also be placed in strategic locations to ensure complete peace of mind.
