The house mouse is small in size with a long tail, big ears and a pointy little snout. These light brown to dark grey creatures can appear cute an innocent. However, anyone who’s dealt with mice will know that the what they lack in size they make up for in speed and cunning persistence.
House mice can live up to a year and have, on average, ten young in their life. They are excellent climbers, jumpers and swimmers and are considered a pest because of their night-time feeding expeditions and their contamination of food/areas with their urine and droppings.
BEST 1 MICE PEST CONTROL METHODS
To eradicate infestations of both rats and mice, Best 1 uses a number of methods and procedures.
First, a professional Best 1 team member visits the property to do an inspection, identifying any entry and exit points in the roof, floor and wall cavities. Once these points are identified, rather than block them off, Best 1 places either bait stations or traps. The issue faced with baiting as opposed to trapping is that, although effective, when mice/rats consume the bait. It is not an immediate death. It takes a number of hours for the mouse/rat to die, and in this time the animal will generally wander into the nest, wall cavities, and other hidden areas causing lasting odours and other relating problems.
