How do I control mice and rats?

What exactly do exterminators do about mice?

Mice can cause an infestation in your home,  which is why the best solution to the problem is using professional exterminators.  Mice can enter homes by slipping through small gaps around windows, doors and siding.  Once inside they will find shelter in dark areas that are close to food sources like kitchens or pantries. Mice are able to fit through tiny holes the size of a dime, so it is important to keep any entry points sealed up when you don’t want mice in your home.

Household items that can attract mice include:   -Straw or hay bales -Woodpiles -Cluttered basements and attics-Wet or dirty garages -Anywhere cool and dark with easy access to food sources.

What exactly do exterminators do about mice?

Professional exterminators will explore all points of entry around your home and treat any evidence of mice activity. Some of the most popular methods professional pest control companies use include:

Aerosol mouse repellents  – Made from very strong peppermint oil pellets, these aerosol sprays can be used to ‘fog’ your home.

Mice traps- Mice traps are the most common form of pest control for mice. They come in many different forms and can use baits like peanut butter for lures.   The trap is designed with a trigger mechanism which will snap shuton the mice when it comes into contact with the trigger.

Glue boards- Glue on a board is another popular pest control solution for mice. These boards are made to catch any mice that come across them, and they sometimes use bait like peanut butter as well. Glue traps are very effective because they don’t require poisons or chemicals.

Household mice will live for an average of one year and can produce up to ten litters per year.  This means that the young born from each litter will also become adults within a few months, allowing the problem to grow exponentially if it is not dealt with quickly by professional exterminators.

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.
