A mouse is a mouse no matter where it lives. Its removal is essentially the same in any location, but businesses have liabilities in which they must act in the best interests of their staff and customers. This results in some differences between the methods used in residential and commercial settings. If you’re currently dealing with a mouse infestation, do not hesitate to call Mouse Removal Toronto for help.
Mice are unfortunately very common pests that invade both human homes and businesses. Mice are attracted to the warmth of these buildings and the food they have inside. Kitchens, basements, attics, garages, restaurants, and food storage facilities are popular mouse destinations. These little critters often get inside by crawling through open doors or squeezing through any gaps they find. It only takes a hole the width of a ballpoint pen for a mouse to get inside. Cracks in the foundation, gaps between vinyl sliding, ventilation pipes, and the spaces beneath doors are also common entry points. Once inside, mice usually nest in undisturbed, enclosed spaces, such as wall voids.
Mouse removal involves trapping and excluding. Both residential and commercial mouse removal services consist of setting traps in areas of high mouse activity and sealing entry points. Removing other sources of food with regular cleaning and maintenance is another important part of the process as it encourages mice to consume bait. The difference between residential and commercial removal lies in the trapping methods. Rodenticide may be applied in a residential setting, but only mechanical snap traps or catch boxes may be used in businesses. Businesses may only use rodenticide outdoors, such as to control an exterior rat population. This is to avoid contaminating anything with poison or having dead mice within the walls of the business.
Whether you are dealing with an infestation in your home or business, it is a good idea to get professional help. If your business is caught having mice, it may have to shut down – especially if it serves or handles food. Quick and professional intervention is a must. A licensed technician will get to the bottom of any mouse problem and devise a plan that works best for your situation. He or she will be able to identify areas of high mouse activity and set the best traps on the market. A technician can also pest-proof the home or business for you, blocking any more mice from entering.
The key to removing any mouse infestation is persistence. It takes consistent trapping to get rid of mice because they reproduce very quickly, and they can be hard to catch.
