Mice can cause havoc, so quick action is required if you think or know you have a problem with mice.
Though cute-looking, mice are actually considered pests because they’re prone to carrying diseases and bacteria, and transmit viruses. Alongside this, they’re also destructive to property, nibbling, chewing, and scratching your belongings and even destroying commercial crop fields.
This is why it’s important to get rid of them in an appropriate manner – this is where pest control comes in.
There are a few different methods that can be employed by pest control looking to dispose of a mouse problem. Though the aptest method depends on the scale and severity of the infestation, these are the methods that your pest control expert could consider:
Mechanical control: Mechanical control is the laying and use of traps, such as the mousetrap. Wherever possible, the pest control professional will use humane traps as opposed to catch-and-kill, which means that once in captivity the mice will be re-released into the wild, away from your property.
Poisoned bait: Poisoned bait is only ever usually used as a last resort. This is because it can affect other animals, such as pets. For that reason, here at Pest.co.uk, we will only ever use poisoned bait if mechanical traps fail and the risk to other animals is as minimal as possible.
To keep mice out of your home or property, there are some general tips you can follow.
Ultimately, there isn’t any blanket price when it comes to the costs of removing mice from your home. Two of the biggest factors that affect the price of our pest control service is the scale and severity of the problem. This is for two reasons.
Firstly, the more mice that are infesting your home, the more employees we’ll likely need to bring out with us to ensure we cover all our bases. By comparison, just one suspected mouse in your home, or a few, will be cheaper to get rid of because it’s a problem easily targeted by a sole employee or a team of two.
Also, the heavier the infestation the more equipment is likely to be needed. For instance, one mouse is obviously going to require fewer traps to be caught than a whole infestation of mice. There is also the concern of re-release; it will be easier to release just one mouse back into a safe area of the wild than a whole nest of mice. This again raises the costs, especially as here at Pest.co.uk we always prefer humane methods of pest removal rather than extermination.
