Why mice are pests?

It is essential to get rid of mice for a number of reasons: Mice chew through packaging illustration


Looking for evidence of mice

Mice are most active at night, but they can be seen occasionally during daylight hours. In the case of a minor infestation mice are not necessarily seen, but there are many signs that give away their presence:

Deprive mice of food

Mice only eat 2 to 4 grams per day of almost anything, but they prefer cereal grains, seeds, or sweet material. They require very little water, obtaining most of their water needs from their food. Mice also catch food as supply permits. It is therefore paramount to remove all food access to mice:

Getting rid of mice

In appropriate living conditions (food, water, and shelter), mice can multiply rapidly: they produce about 8 litters in a one year and each mouse litter has 4-7 pups. It is important to get rid of mice quickly before they are too numerous, damage pipe cables and insulation, and infest your facility.

If total control is not achieved rapidly, mice will rebuild their population or reproduce quicker than traps can kill them. This is why DIY mice traps are generally not sufficient to kill mice and rats. There are also situations were mice nests cannot be accessed (e.g.: ceilings, walls, etc.)

For all these reasons it is preferable to consult a professional Pest Controller who will know exactly who to handle each situation in order to achieve complete mice control.

Proofing against future mice infestations

The final part of mice control is to undertake proofing work to prevent future infestations. Unfortunately a house mouse can squeeze through 6mm openings, and it may be very difficult to locate such little holes.

Mice Entry Points

There are a number of potential mice access points:

  1. Doors and windows. Check for any mice access gaps around the frame or under the door
  2. Air vents: some of them have large apertures and a mouse can easily squeeze through.
  3. Waste pipes and gas/water pipes entering walls: Check if any gap was left big enough for a mouse to get in.
  4. Electrical / telephone / cable supply: Mice will also try these to infest your property.
