Maidenhead Pest Control: professional mouse control throughout Maidenhead, Ascot and Windsor.
Total mouse control from Maidenhead Pest Control
You are likely to become aware of mice during the autumn and winter months as they search for warmth, food and shelter, migrating into homes and garages throughout the Maidenhead area.
Mice will quickly become established inside a property and they can be difficult to control as they breed very quickly and the population will rise dramatically.
Mice can damage live electrical wiring by gnawing on the cables, they gnaw to check the growth of their teeth and this causes fires and failure of freezers and household appliances.
Mice are also vectors of disease, particularly salmonella (bacterial food poisoning) where food becomes contaminated with infected rodent feces.
Guide to how you can spot mouse activity in your property:
We think that we may have a mouse infestation, how would we know as we've heard nothing?
Mice infestations will often go undetected in a property due to the naturally shy nature of the mouse, customers report that though they've never seen one, that they often hear scurrying noises in walls and across the ceilings. As well as this noise, things to look our for are:
Teeth marks on electric cables, woodwork where the mice are gnawing, look particularly hard at and around edges such as on door frames as a young mouse can squeeze through a gap of 5mm.
Mouse droppings are often evident in large numbers in corners and dark areas, these are small and spindle shaped (think of small dark grains of rice), their size is between 3 and 7mm in length.
Mice leave smear marks from their greasy fur where they travel and these may be visible on well established transit routes.
Mice leave a strong musky smell and in confined spaces this is particularly noticeable; look underneath the kitchen units as mice will often travel along pipes that lead into a property from a cavity wall
