How to Evict Mice from Your Home
Mice can enter your home through even the tiniest cracks and crevices. Once inside, they do three things; eat, defecate and breed. Unless you take immediate action one mouse quickly becomes several dozen. That’s why your single best tactic to deal with these small rodents is to call a mouse exterminator. In Calgary, Cal-Rid Exterminators Inc. has the experience, the tools and the know-how to quickly and efficiently rid your home of every last mouse.
Block Off Entrances
Preventing mice from breaking into your residence in the first place is the best way to control their population. Any hole leading into your Calgary home that’s the size of a dime or larger needs to be closed off. You’ll need to consider vents, pipes and cable routes as possible entrances for mice, as well as gas piping, electrical lines and chimneys. You also need to secure the sealant around all windows and doors. Cal-Rid Exterminators can inspect the exterior of your home and repair these areas as we go. If there is access underneath decks we will crawl under to inspect as we ensure the most comprehensive inspection possible. This is the most important part of mouse prevention.
Once comfy and nested inside your abode, mice populations are difficult to control. They’re pleased to be out of the Calgary cold and in a space that’s warm and dry. They won’t easily surrender such comforts. However, using bait throughout the home is your best bet to rid them quickly and effectively. Bait is placed throughout your home in a locked, tamper resistant box. We take the time to find the best placement possible and ensure that bait is not out in the open but placed behind stoves, fridges, washers and dryers, in t-bar ceilings, drop ceilings, rafters and under sinks.
The more time that passes, the more damage mice will incur upon your home. They’ll eat your food, stink up your house with their bodily waste and can cause a lot of damage. Mice aren’t just a nuisance; they’re a health and safety hazard. Rodent control in Calgary is best left to pros like us at Cal-Rid Exterminators. Call us immediately when you spot a mouse and we’ll get your situation sorted quickly and safely.
