How to get rid of mice in your loft

It is hard to get rid of mice in the loft because they are very good at hiding. We need to keep our eyes open for any evidence that they have been there and use traps or poisons to kill them.

Mice are usually found in lofts as they love to make their nests in the insulation. They can also be found in roof spaces if there is a hole or an open door.

The best way to get rid of mice is by using a humane trap that will catch the mouse and release it into the wild. There are also other methods such as using glue boards, poison, traps and repellents.

Humane traps: These traps are designed to catch the mouse without harming them while they move them outside. The most popular humane traps are live cage traps and snap-type live cage traps.

Glue boards: These boards work by luring mice onto them with food bait and then trapping them on an adhesive surface when they try to eat it.

So How to get rid of mice in your loft ?

If you’ve been noticing strange new sounds and smells from your loft, these could indicate that a family of mice has decided to move in. Lofts provide the ideal environment for mice to build their homes, especially if you’re storing any kind of pet food up there; mice like to be as near to reliable food sources as possible. Understanding why mice want to live in loft spaces makes it much easier to work out how to get rid of them.

One of the main appeals of most attics for mice is the multiple entry points. Mice can enter and exit attics at will thanks to tree branches, gutters, downspouts, and even small cracks in roofs and exterior walls. This convenience of entrance and egress make it much easier for mice to scavenge for what they need and then return to their nest efficiently.

Like all animals, mice escape from the cold weather. Because heat rises and many lofts are insulated, they are perfect for keeping warm. Mice are also timid creatures that prefer to stay hidden whenever possible. Lofts provide them with ample hiding spaces,

5 Tips on How to get rid of mice in your loft

1. Use poison or traps to kill the mice.

2. Seal any holes or cracks in your loft that may provide entry for the mice.

3. Clean up any food or crumbs that may be attracting the mice.

4. Remove any potential nesting spots, such as old paper or cardboard boxes.

How to get rid of mice in home ?

A question that many people ask is how to get rid of mice in home. The first thing to do is to make sure that the house is clean and free of any food sources. This means that all food should be stored in airtight containers, sealed, or thrown away. All garbage should be stored in airtight containers as well and should not be left outside where it can attract pests.

The second thing you can do is to make sure that there are no holes or gaps around the house where mice can enter. This includes gaps under doors, gaps between siding and foundation, gaps around pipes or wires, etc. You can also use sticky traps to catch the mice before they enter the house so you don’t have a problem with them inside your home.

If you want to get rid of any mice living in your attic, you will need to remove their necessities. That means decluttering so they have nowhere to hide, plugging any gaps they might use to get in and out, and either string food elsewhere or ensuring that it’s completely sealed so they can’t get at it. If your attic is insulated, be wary of mice helping themselves to insulation to build warm nests for themselves.

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.
