How to get rid of field mice in the backyard?

So How to get rid of field mice in the backyard? Sometimes known as voles, field mice can cause enormous damage to your yard or garden. They will happily eat bulbs, nibble on stems, chew on wood, and build runways through your grass. Voles are a common sight on properties located close to woodland, especially where there’s a thick brush. Individual field mice don’t cause much trouble, but an infestation can wreak havoc throughout your property’s outdoor areas. If you want to avoid the damage and other issues that filed mice can cause, there are some simple steps you can take.

How to get rid of field mice in the backyard?

First and foremost, tidy up. Field mice rely on an abundance of long grass, vegetation, and other debris to build their nests and avoid detection. If your garden is tidy and you keep your grass cut short, field mice will still pass through your garden, but they won’t be looking to move in any time soon. 

Next, you can protect any structures or plants in your garden by placing simple barriers in the way. For example, if you suspect field mice are gnawing at the lower trunks of trees on your property and leaving visible damage behind, you can keep them protected with a loose cylinder of 1/4″ wire mesh wrapped around the base. Bury it a couple of inches into the ground to prevent voles from digging under.

If you already have a field mouse infestation on your property, you can use traps and poisons to clear away any live specimens. If you want to avoid harming the field mice but want them off your property, there are humane traps available that will capture rather than kill them.

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.
