The Most Effective Mouse Control and Extermination Techniques

Mouse and Rat Extermination CreweFinding mice in your home can be very distressing. They can spread diseases in their search for food and shelter, posing great health risks especially in kitchens and food storage areas. Mice can also damage your property, insulation, doors, pipes, floorboards and more.

Mice are usually nocturnal and can remain hidden for a long time before you even begin to suspect a problem. Some of the most common signs of mouse activity are:

  • Scratching noises: Strange unpleasant noises coming from between walls, under floorboards, in false ceilings, basements and lofts
  • Droppings: Dark and small in size, scattered randomly, usually on cupboard tops and along skirting
  • Rub marks: Caused by their bodies touching walls, skirting and floors on regular routes, dark smears around corners and holes
  • Track footprints: In dusty environments like unused lofts and basements. You can also sprinkle flour or talcum powder and check the next day for fresh tracks
  • Nests: Mice use easy to shred and soft materials to build their nests. Check suspended ceilings, lofts, cavity walls, behind fridges and under stoves
  • Live or dead mice: Spotting a mouse during the day can be an indication of a heavy infestation

No More Rodents at Home With Our Rat Removal Service

Rats can be very persistent and even gnaw through metal to get inside your home. Once they do gain access to your premises, they can spread diseases, contaminate food and cause structural damages. That’s why it’s vital to eliminate a rat infestation as quickly as you can.

Rats are also more active during the night. Thus, it’s often easier to spot the signs of a rat invasion than the actual rodent. Here are the most common signs of rat activity:

  • Rat droppings: Usually concentrated in a specific location, dark brown in color, spindle shape, resembling a large grain of rice
  • Grease marks: Rats use established routes along skirting boards and walls due to their poor eyesight. Dirt and grease on their bodies leave dark marks and smudges on surfaces and objects they repeatedly brush against
  • Scratching noises: Roof rats are agile climbers. Often found in lofts, you may hear scratching or grinding noises at night
  • Rat holes: Rats are also well known for digging and excavating large burrow systems for shelter, food storage and nesting
  • Rat nests: Can be found in burrows, lofts, attics, under eaves and even in cavity walls
  • Footprints: You can see foot and tail marks in dusty and less used areas of a building. Sprinkle fine flour or talc around the footprint areas and check for fresh tracks the next day
