HOW TO CONTROL MICE?

MOUSE PEST CONTROL

The first step to controlling a mouse population has to do with making sure that you limit all things that attract mice in the first place. Good housekeeping, proper storage and handling of food materials and disposal of organic wastes are essential. As the first control step, piles of trash, organic and not should be eliminated which can serve as hiding and nesting sites.

The second step is the extermination. Limiting the population that currently exists and disrupting their reproductive cycle.

The final step is making sure no other rodents can make their way in. Rodent proofing by means of structural barriers to deny access to buildings and food is a necessity. Metal screening should be placed over dryer vents and other ventilation openings, and under open porches or sheds. After the entry points are sealed our licensed exterminator will perform a chemical treatment using rodenticides. Snap or glue trap treatments can also be used upon request.

MICE AT HOME

Mice use a variety of potential access points to enter a home. They can enter through small openings around your garage door, through broken vent covers, unsealed pipes from the exterior or even through any other tiny opening in your brick work. Once inside mice make their way through wall voids or tunneling through insulation. They can travel through walls from your garage to your kitchen to find food and water. A pest control treatment for mice in a residential setting consists of the application of rodenticide in tamper resistant containers in areas of high activity.

MICE PROBLEM AT YOUR BUSINESS

A mouse infestation at a business can be a serious problem that can have disastrous consequences. Especially if the business is a restaurant, food processing or storage facility. To deal with a mouse population in a such a business we can only use mechanical means to control a population. Either mechanical snap traps or metal catch boxes to bring down a population. Rat poison can only be used on the exterior of the structure that houses a food processing or service business. Maintaining good sanitation levels throughout the business and making sure entry points are sealed is imperative for effective mouse control in the Greater Toronto Area.

RODENT IDENTIFICATION

Good housekeeping, proper storage and handling of food materials and disposal of organic wastes are essential. As the first control step, piles of trash, organic and not should be eliminated which can serve as hiding and nesting sites.

MICE VS RATS

Mice are much smaller than rats and can enter a structure through even the tiniest openings. While rats are far more destructive than mice, keep in mind that even a small mouse problem can quickly get out of hand and lead to many other problems. If you have seen signs of mice you need to take immediate and mostly effective action to deal with the rat and mouse problem. Common rodent pests in the GTA are House Mice, Deer Mice and the Norway Rat. All of which require the implementation of a pest management program.

HOUSE MOUSE VS DEER MOUSE (WHITE-FOOTED MOUSE)

The Deer Mouse and the house mouse are approximately the exact same size. While they are both smaller rodents they can be both dangerous disease carriers. Deer mice have larger ears and eyes along with a two-tone fur. The Deer mouse receives its name since its coloration resembles that of the white-tailed Deer – gray or tawny brown above and white beneath.  The deer mouse, and on occasion the white-footed mouse, would be the mice mostly responsible for transmitting Hantavirus to people. While they aren’t generally located in metropolitan areas, they can be found often near creeks and ravines in the Greater Toronto Area.

Both species of mice can spread harmful bacteria, other pests like ticks and fleas and serious diseases. The house mouse can spread Lymphocytic choriomeningitis, rickettsialpox, and leptospirosis while the deer mouse or white-footed mouse is a vector for hantaviruses. Rest assured, we can provide effective pest control services for both deer mice and house mice.

CHEMICAL PEST CONTROL FOR MICE - RAT POISON

Chemical control is performed with the use of rodenticides. Depending on the situation, the level of infestation and layout, our exterminator will use multiple or single dose anticoagulant rodenticides. Common active ingredients in rat poison are chlorophacinone, diphacinon. These chemicals are placed in sealed and damage proof plastic containers to avoid contamination. These containers are then placed by the licensed exterminator in the appropriate places to induce feeding. This is the most effective way to control rodents. The rodenticide is placed in tamper resistant containers that require a key to open.

After we determine the areas of highest mouse activity the bait stations are placed strategically to maximize the feed rate. The stations are child and pet safe, they are tamper resistant and require a key to open. Depending on the severity of the infestation and on factors like competing for food sources the mouse problem is usually solved within a few weeks. Typically mice will take the poison and die. We use commercial rodenticides that are not available to the general public. They contain higher concentrations of the active ingredient and only a licensed exterminator can carry and apply. While there are many poisons available we only use products that we field test extensively. We carry products that can deal with even the most problematic infestations.

The use of rodenticide as part of a pest management program is the most cost efficient way to deal with a mouse problem. As a fully licensed pest control company we guarantee the extermination and provide a full 6 month warranty to make sure that whatever is there is gone. Call to have a Mice Exterminator Toronto deal with the mouse infestation once and for all using proven rodent control techniques. All our rodent control technicians are experienced to deal with even the most challenging rat and mouse problems in the Greater Toronto Area.

EXCLUSION - MOUSE PROOFING

DOES TRAPPING MICE WORK?

Yes and no. While the house mouse is easily trapped with spring traps you will need a very large number of mouse traps to exterminate a mouse population in a structure. Dozens and Dozens of mouse traps. Many dozens. That is especially true in restaurants, warehouses and other commercial facilities with regular deliveries and more traffic. Open doors, loading docks and other activities tend to help start and perpetuate a small rodent problem. The traps should be placed against and perpendicular to baseboards, boxes or other sheltered areas or possible runways. Traps need to be baited, cleaned and reset regularly. They should be inspected daily and dead mice should be removed promptly. Multi-catch traps are also available for use in food, feed and other areas where chemical rodenticides cannot be used. Glue boards can also be considered for use in such areas. We provide rodent trapping programs for food processing facilities, restaurants and other establishments where the use of poison is not permitted. Customized trapping programs require regular maintenance and adjustments. Our commercial mouse control programs are extremely effective.

MOUSE PROOFING

There are many things that can be done to prevent mice from entering a structure in the first place or after an extermination has been completed. These have to do with sealing all entry points so mice cannot come in. After the extermination takes place and signs of activity subside it is time to make sure there are no entry points that mice can use to enter a structure.

Doors and ground level windows need to be kept closed at all times if not used, or have proper screening installed. Windows left open at night offer mice easy access. If windows have screens this will probably be satisfactory.

 

COMMON MOUSE PROOFING METHODS ARE:

  • Screening of roof vents
  • Sewer rat guards
  • Mouse proofing of pipe openings
  • Curtain Walls
  • Utility Line Guards
  • Metal Screening on dryer vents
  • Sealing all small holes

Health Concerns Caused by Mice

Some Health risks commonly associated with mice

Mice can easily find their way into homes because they can alter their physical structure to squeeze through tiny holes, cracks, and cervices. They are nimble creatures capable of walking along thin wires, too. They often find their way onto various surfaces. They scurry across floors and counters, and they often invade your cabinets in search of food to eat.

Unfortunately, mice are more than just a nuisance. They can also pose health hazards to you and anyone else living in your home. Mice often defecate or urinate on counters, in drawers, or in cabinets. They may also defecate and urinate in food. For instance, if a mouse gets into a cereal box, it can defecate or urinate on the cereal. If you eat the cereal, you might experience certain illnesses transmitted by the rodent.

Health risks commonly associated with mice include:

  • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM): LCM is often transmitted via dust that contains particles of mouse feces and urine. When you breathe in the dust, you run the risk of contracting LCM, which is a viral infection. Symptoms of LCM include headache, nausea, fever, and a loss of appetite. If left untreated, LCM can progress to a neurological disease, so it is best to get diagnosed as quickly as possible.
  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS): HPS is yet another serious disease often transmitted by mice to humans. You can contract HPS by breathing in the urine, feces, or saliva of a mouse. Symptoms of HPS may include fatigue, body aches, and fever. Some patients may also develop symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, and chills. Late symptoms may include trouble breathing, tightness of the chest, and coughing. Less commonly, some people also experience earaches, sore throat, runny nose, and a rash.

If you suspect that you may have come into contact with rodent urine or feces, make sure you pay close attention to your health. If you start to feel ill, visit a doctor as soon as possible. Make sure you let your doctor know that you were exposed to rodent droppings and urine. To minimize your risk of developing an illness transmitted by mice, give us a call.

We can rid your home of mice quickly and efficiently so you do not suffer the negative consequences to your health.

A Professional Approach VS DIY

mouse control

Call us today, OUR SERVICES ARE GUARANTEED AND OUR PRICES ARE COMPETITIVE.

You will often find a lot of information on the internet suggesting different ways to get mice out and keep them out. Most of the suggestions, however, are based off old wives’ tales rather than specific evidence. Therefore, taking the DIY route means you run the risk of wasting money on efforts that may or may not work.

A female mouse can produce forty young or more year. The female can begin breeding once she is just a couple months old. Therefore, a population of mice can expand very quickly. All it takes is one pregnant mouse in your house and you can easily have hundreds of mice before you know it.

In other words, getting ahead of an infestation of mice is important. You need to act quickly before they expand their population. Despite suggestions you might find online, your best bet is to opt for a professional approach. We can provide you with fast, efficient, and professional mice control solutions.

We will send qualified exterminators to your home or business to handle mice in a way that is sure to work. In fact, we are so confident about our services that we offer a six-month warranty. If pests return within six months, so do we, and at no cost to you. Find out how mouse control Toronto services can help you deal with mouse infestations.

What You Can Expect

We use a highly effective approach when dealing with mice problems. The first thing you can expect is a visit from a professional. The professional will accurate identify the species of mouse in your home and come up with an effective treatment plan. Each species of mouse has different behaviors and diets, so it is important that we identify the correct species.

The technician will also determine if the mouse lives inside your home or outside somewhere nearby. Once the technician identifies the species and where the mice dwell, they will provide you with a detailed analysis and a quote for the best solutions to your problem. Once approved, the technician will get to work eliminating mice from your home.

The process of elimination may include several steps, including exclusion, sanitation, and trapping and humanely killing. Exclusion is any home or business owners first and best line of defense against any pest. The goal is to exclude pests by making your home or business look unattractive.

You can practice methods of exclusion by ensuring pests cannot get in, keeping everything clean so they have no food, and ensuring they have no water. Removing a pest’s source of food, water, and shelter means they will not want to invade your property. Your technician will find entry points and seal them so mice cannot get in and out.

After we make sure everything is sealed tight, we also assist with proper sanitation. We either offer suggestions or provide sanitation services to better prevent an infestation of mice. Finally, a technician will strategically place traps or mechanical devices that trap and eliminate mice. We return to make sure that you no longer have any mice running around your home or business.

Once eliminated, you can rest easy knowing that your home is rodent-free. If for any reason mice return within six months, we will come back and provide you services at no charge to you. Make sure you call us as soon as you suspect a mouse problem. The sooner you address the problem, the better.

The longer you wait, the more time mice have to breed and expand their population. We will work quickly to get ahead of the problem to ensure your home is and stays mouse-free.
