What are the disadvantages of fumigating to get rid of mice?

There are several reasons why you wouldn’t want to fumigate, there is no such thing as fumigation for mice, if anyone tries to sell you this service it must be a conman not a pest control technician.

Fumigation for mice or cockroaches is not approved in the UK.

What are the disadvantages of fumigating to get rid of mice?

Fumigation for mice can cause problems. Mouse fumigations are not allowed in the UK.

There are many reasons why you should not try to get rid of mice with fumigation:

1) To get rid of rodents like rats or mice, professional use pesticides that can be dangerous if not handled properly; someone without experience might kill only one mouse but leave thousands of others behind;

2) Fumigating is a long process, from 2 days up to 3 weeks depending on which pesticide is used – it would require evacuating your home or business premises, and to be shut for several days during the process.

3) The pest control service might advise that fumigation is not safe, since it can cause problems.

4) Fumigation for mice does not work! The permethrin used will only kill the ones you see, not the ones who are hidden inside walls or other places. It’s also harmful to humans and pets.

5) If you try to fumigate yourself, you risk contaminating your home or business premises with the pesticide that’s used; this is especially dangerous if not handled properly.

6) Pest control companies like Bon Accord Pest Control advise against fumigation for mice since it does more harm than good – possible health risks, the expense of the fumigation for mice, and the fact that it doesn’t solve anything.

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.
