Mice in Storage Unit? What To Do, How to get rid of them?

Mice are a common pest in storage units, and they can cause serious damage to your belongings. Mice can get into a storage unit through openings as small as 1/2 inch. They will chew on anything that smells like food, and they love cardboard boxes. Mice will also nest in soft furnishings and insulation, so it is important to keep these areas clean. The best way to get rid of mice from a storage unit is by using traps or poison baits. You should also think about sealing up any holes or cracks in the walls of the unit that may be letting the mice inside

How To Deal With Mice In storage unit?

Rodents present a constant threat to self-storage businesses and their patrons. While any respectable storage business will have an active pest control program to reduce the chances of an infestation ruining their customers’ belongings, this isn’t always enough to keep every unit free from mice and rats. And while storage businesses prohibit the storage of food and other perishable items because they are likely to attract rodents, some people flout the rules or forget that the things they’re storing contain perishables. Whether you rent a unit from a commercial business or you own your own storage unit, you need to know what to do if mice manage to make their way in.

How to keep mice out of storage unit?

Find All The Entry Points !

First and foremost, if you are renting the storage unit from a commercial business, inform them that they have a pest problem. They can then alert their other customers and step up their pest control policies to minimise the damage to people’s possessions.

Before you place any items into storage, make sure they are clean. Mice love crumbs, so if you put your sofa into storage without first vacuuming all the crumbs and other debris out of it, you could find it covered in rodents when you go to retrieve it.

Look for any signs of a nest in your unit. If you find an active mouse nest, contact a professional pest controller to take care of it. In case there’s no nest in the unit itself, you can deal with the rodents by laying down traps or poisoned bait. If you know how the mice are getting into the unit, seal it up as best you can.

When cleaning up after an infestation, you should wear a face mask with a HEPA filter and wear rubber gloves at all times. Use a disinfectant spray and damp cloth to clean any surfaces you can and kill off any viruses that might be present.

Mice in the storage unit what to do

If you find mice in your storage unit, there are a few things you can do. First, you should try to determine how the mice got into the storage unit. If they were already in the unit when you rented it, you should notify the manager or owner immediately. Mice can cause a lot of damage to property and can also be a health hazard.

If the mice were not already in the unit, there are a few things you can do to keep them out. You can try to block any holes or openings where the mice could enter. You can also put down traps or poison to get rid of the mice. However, you should always carefully read the directions on any chemicals before using them.

Finally,if you are having trouble getting rid of the mice, you may want to contact a professional pest control company. They will be able to help get rid of the mice and also help prevent them from coming back.

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.
