Can I get rid of mice by turning off the heat?

So Can I get rid of mice by turning off the heat? This is a myth. Mice are not animals that are susceptible to changes in temperature. They can even survive in temperatures as low as -4 degrees Fahrenheit (-20 degrees Celsius). The best way to get rid of mice that have invaded your home is to trap them with a mouse trap or use poison bait.

So Can I get rid of mice by turning off the heat? The answer is, no you can’t. Mice and other rodents seek warmth and comfort in the colder months and will find a warm place to live like your home. Whether that’s under your floorboards, inside your walls or in an attic space, mice and other rodents will try to make themselves at home. They will not leave until you have forced them out.

Where do mice come from?

The answer is, everywhere! Mice are small animals that live in small groups or large mobs depending on their environment. They will take up residence wherever they can find food and protection from predators.

Can I get rid of mice by turning off the heat?

The answer is, you can’t. Mice are very elusive creatures, they are fast and are usually too quick for the average homeowner to catch. They come out mainly at night when people are less likely to be around which makes it even more difficult to get rid of them. The only way to get rid of mice is by contacting a professional pest control service likeBon Accord Pest Control. A professional pest controller will be able to tell you what the issue is and how they will go about fixing it .

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
