So What is the best mice repellent?

It is difficult to get rid of mice, it requires determination and great patience. That’s why people try everything – from old wives’ remedies to special commercial repellents. However, not everything works for everyone.

So what is the best mice repellent?

This question can be easily answered with a few points to consider:

– Mice are attracted by smell – food smell, smell of their own droppings or urine, etc. That’s why they will never leave our house if there are any traces of them somewhere. And usually you won’t notice these traces very soon because mice urinate once in ten days at most while leaving only four or five faecal pellets per day! Thus the cleaning should be done regularly.

– Mice don’t like light and spaces. So we can use these principles to drive them out of our house: put bright lights in the places they like (the more, the better) and leave no place where mice could hide (all holes should be tightly stuffed with anything).

– Mice are afraid of new odours. That’s why you should try to change those things that make a bad smell or become wet, such as old food bits, dirty tissue paper packs, etc. This will also take care of your cleanliness – if you keep it up all the time, mice won’t have any chance to “smell” their presence there!

– The best way is to prevent mice from coming inside at all. Make sure that your house is tightly sealed (put rubber bands around the door thresholds, etc.) and pay attention to small things that mice may chew into – like tiny cracks or holes too small for you to find.Mice can never be a threat if you keep your house clean and make sure that they have nothing to eat there.

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.
