How to get rid of mice in your roof?


So how to get rid of mice in your roof? Having mice scuttling across the floor in your roof might not seem like the biggest problem in the world, but don’t be fooled. A single pair of breeding mice can produce a dozen or more litters every year. Mice of all ages love to chew through whatever their teeth can get through.

If you’re lucky, they’ll only end up destroying some old papers and magazines. But in the most serious cases, they can chew through live wires and end up causing house fires.

How to get rid of mice in your roof?

If you suspect you have mice roaming free in your roof, you should deal with the problem as quickly as possible. The first step to ridding your roof of mice is to prevent any new ones from making their way in there. If you can find the passages and entrances that they’re using to access your roof, seal them off immediately.

Once you’ve stemmed the flow of rodents into your roof, you need to decide what to do about the ones that are already there. Removing any sources of food will force them to wander further afield in search of nutrients. However, this is unlikely to provoke the mass exodus you are hoping for. Whether humane or otherwise, mousetraps are another tried and tested method for reducing the number of rodents in our home. You will need to check the traps daily and either free the living specimens or dispose of their deceased brethren yourself.

At this point, it’s just a matter of waiting for the population numbers to dwindle and the remaining members to seek a better life elsewhere. Just don’t let yourself become complacent once you’ve dealt with one infestation or another will soon be along to start the cycle all over again.


No one wants to deal with bugs, rats, micecockroaches, flies, textile pests, insects, wasps, hornets, or bee control and ants in their house or business.

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.
