Is there a mouse in your house? Pest Control covering Bracknell, Wokingham, Crowthorne and surrounding Berkshire areas.
“There are droppings in my food cupboard and the cereal has been chewed open”, why are mice such a problem in Bracknell?
Mouse infestations are a common problem in Bracknell; building work that has been going on for the last decade has increased the number of communal buildings such as flats and terraced houses which hold voids like cavity walls, service ducts and common lofts mean that the mice have a 5* stay at the tip of their toes. In this environment, generally warm with access to water and food, the mouse population goes through the roof! Sometimes quite literally.
Bracknell Pest Control deal with two types of mice: Field mice which includes shrew’s and the house mouse. These two groups have much different behavioural characteristics and can be easily differentiated. When it comes to mice we only trap these rodents as we do not want the rodenticide affecting non-target species such as kites or barn owls.
Mouse droppings look very similar and they defecate everywhere, their faeces are very distinctive compared to their scavenger rival; the rat. Mouse droppings are oblong and black in colour, smaller than a grain of dried rice with pointed ends. These will often be found lying in groups around corners and edges where the mice like to sit.
If you don't use poison how do you treat mice?
As with our rat treatments, we won’t use poison inside a domestic property. It’s important to carry out a comprehensive survey of the entire building with mice as they can get through a gap the size of your little finger. Once we have done this and have indentified where the mice are coming in we will begin by blocking any holes and covering vents ensuring no more mice are able to access the building. Following the discovery of the access point, we will lay traps around the infested areas evict your unwanted neighbours leaving you pest free.
Mice cause damage to stored food items and can nibble through some electrical wiring causing failures and further costs, mice also carry salmonella so they pose a risk to human health.
We tackle them with a No More Mr Mice Guy approach – it’s even written on our vans!
Should I be concerned about mice?
Mice infestations get out of control very quickly as they have up to 18 pups in a litter and they can have 10 litters per year; mice carry salmonella which is a risk to human health and this can mean that commercial businesses face closure and fines.
Whatever the type of property don’t let your mouse problem become a hazard, our approach of trapping and proofing brings about quick control.
