As a result, many individuals may have searched the internet to find a mouse exterminator to help them eliminate the pests in their homes. However, you might be curious as to how to remove mouse infestation by professional help from a pest exterminator.
As a result, we’ll talk about what mouse exterminator professionals perform to solve your rodent problems today. But first, let’s look at why rodents are attracted to your property in the first place.
What Attracts Mice?
When mice invade property, they only look for three things: food, water, and shelter.
If mice discover these things at home, they will build nests and breed, resulting in a severe mouse infestation. It might be hard to eliminate mouse infestation once it has started.
While homeowners can treat most mice infestations without the help of experts, but if you can not do it yourself, don’t hesitate to call Provincial Pest Control for mouse extermination professional before your mouse problem becomes an epidemic.
How Pest Exterminator Gets Rid of Mice?
To get rid of mice, professional pest exterminator use a variety of methods.
The service plan you receive will be customized to your specific needs and frequently include a combination of mechanical traps and rodenticide baits.
Your pest control exterminator will inspect interior and exterior perimeter of your house/apartment/property first. Next, they’ll draw up integrated pest management strategies focused on the mouse species and the extent of the infestation.
To get rid of the mice, most treatments involve using mechanical devices and chemical bait stations, and sealing off entry holes from outside to prevent reinfestation. Pest control exterminator also will recommend you exterior rodent stations to be placed around exterior perimeter, and bait/service these stations ones.
When a professional mice exterminator visits your property, there are a few things you can count on them to do. Let’s look at those acts and why they’re so essential.
Eliminate entry points (from exterior perimeter walls only)
Mice do not require large entry points to get access to your home. Since most breads can fit through holes as small as a dime, any cracks, dents, or weak points must be sealed to prevent mice and other insects from entering into your property.
Mouse traps not help all the time, especially in long term
If you notice an infestation early enough, you can try mouse traps.
These traps will only make a small dent in the population (if they catch 1 or 2), but if the infestation is large or long period of time enough, placing bait stations is the only way to handle the mice infestation.
Set up bait stations and how it works
Bait stations are special boxes which need to be baited by pest control exterminators.
These boxes / stations with baits are not SNAP TRAPS, or instant affecting products. Mice usually consume these chemicals and leave the stations to more safe and quiet spots. Chemicals help to dry out mice bodies, which do not cause any hygiene, or odor problems in your home.
How long does inspection and mouse extermination take?
Interior and exterior perimeter inspection takes between 15-20 minutes including attic (if accessible).
Interior perimeter inspection: Exterminator checks under sinks, under the stove, behind the fridge, electrical panel room, furnace room, water meter spot, under stairs from main floor to basement, attic.
Exterior perimeter inspection: Exterminator checks garage (by gate and entry door into house), around central vacuum, under stairs to house, around pipes and cables into house, around garbage bins.
After thorough inspection, the exterminator defines the level of infestation and number of stations with chemicals that need to be placed in the house.
The amount of time required to exterminate mice is determined by the size of the infestation and house/property size. An exterminator can usually get rid of mice in 2 – 4 weeks, but it may take longer in cases of severe infestations.
How to avoid severe mice infestation in your property
Apply your monthly inspection… check behind the fridge, under the stove, under sinks, and keep these spots clean. Also check the furnace room and electrical panel room, since mice travel by pipes and cables. They can leave mice droppings/feces in these two rooms as well.
