Mouse in your house? Professional mouse control throughout Reading, Wokingham, Bracknell and Maidenhead.
Total mouse control from All Aspects Pest Control
Homeowners in Reading, Bracknell, Maidenhead, Slough and throughout Berkshire are especially likely to become aware of mice during the autumn and winter months as they search for warmth, food and shelter, coming into peoples homes and garages.
Once mice are established inside a property, they can be very hard to control as they breed very quickly and their populations rise dramatically.
Mice damage live electrical wiring by gnawing to check the growth of their teeth causing fires and failure of freezers and household appliances.
Mice can also transmit diseases, particularly salmonellosis (bacterial food poisoning) when food is contaminated with infected rodent feces.
How to spot mouse activity in your property
We think that we have mice, how would be know as we've heard nothing but food is missing from the kitchen?
Often mice infestations will go undetected in a property due to the shy nature of the mouse, customers report that though they've never seen one, they often hear scurrying noises particularly at night. As well as noise look our for:
Look for gnaw marks on electric cables, woodwork and particularly around edges such as on door frames as a young mouse can squeeze through a gap of 5mm.
Droppings are often evident in corners and dark areas, these are small and spindle shaped (think of dark grains of rice) between 3 and 7mm in length.
Smear marks left from their greasy fur may also be visible and these are established on regular transit routes.
There will be a musky smell in confined spaces; look under kitchen units as mice will often travel along pipe and cable channels that lead into a property from a cavity wall
