Mice Treatment

Seasonal Alert: High activity pest

Hundreds of small mice infiltrate homes across the region on an annual basis. They are the most active animals during the winter period. In fact, mice, rats and field mice are more susceptible to invade your home in the winter. When the temperature goes down, rodents may have difficulty finding reliable food sources outside. During this time, they will seek heat, shelter and food in your home, away from the cold, rain and snow. If you encounter a problem with mice, please contact Capital Wildlife Control for immediate assistance. We are the animal control experts in the Ottawa-Gatineau region and mice removal is our specialty.

Mice Removal & Mice Control

What Can We Do For You?

Mice are rodents that can get into your home though holes the size of a penny, and they can multiply very quickly due to their high reproduction rates. This way, thanks to their small size and behavior, one small mouse problem can go unnoticed, but a small number of mice can do great damage as they increase in population.


EVALUATE
AND REMOVE
Capital Wildlife Control’s technicians have been specially trained to remove mice by spotting and identifying the entry points of mice. These rodents can easily use cable or pipe holes to make nests, which can damage your property and create risks for your health. The strategic and systematic removal of mice is the least expensive and the most efficient method to solve an infestation problem. Making sure to block all the possible access points is pertinent. Trying to remove mice by poisoning and trapping can do harm to humans and their pets. Plus, these methods don’t bring real, long-term solutions and do not limit reproduction; worse, they leave dead mice in the walls and in the attics. Our mice removal technique, without poison, is built on decades of researches and proven results, making Capital Wildlife Control one of the leaders in mice removal and animal wildlife control.
CLEAR
AND CLEAN
Capital Wildlife Control’s wildlife mice removal and control strategy is reliable, sure, and humane. Our intervention includes the identification and the cleaning of all contaminated materials that can pose serious health risks. Mice are unsanitary animals that leave a lot of feces behind and can also carry hantavirus, transmitting the ‘’rat bite fever’’ (a zoonosis due to Streptobacillius moniliformis), acarids, tapeworm, and even ringworm. It is important to remove mice and eliminate the contamination by a professional, because of the potential health problems that it can lead to in human and pets. Capital Wildlife Control’s technician will help you choose the best cleaning techniques to disinfect attics or insulation, depending on the level of contamination. Return quickly to a normal life again in a safe and sane environment for your family.
SOME FACTS
ON MICE

It is really common to have mice in a building and not spot them before they do serious damage. Thanks to their high rate of reproduction (a female can have litters of six every eight weeks), mice infestations can rapidly become out of hand. Highlighting the importance of mice removal.

  • Acarids, tapeworm and ringworm are associated with mice. They can also cause rashes and infect the digestive system. Ticks are common carriers of Lyme disease, which can be transmitted to humans and pets by one single bite. Symptoms of Lyme disease are fever, headache and nausea that can last for years if left untreated.
  • People can become infected by a single mice bite, and also from body fluids emitted by a sick mouse. A sudden skin rash, a flu-like state, or nausea can all be symptoms from the ‘’rat bite fever’.
  • A mouse can pass through a hole the size of a penny. Attics, walls, kitchens, furniture, and storage rooms are hot places where mice like to nest. They dig into walls, get in attics, and can be really hard to find. Mice often use cable or pipe holes to have access to different rooms in the house.
  • The most efficient method consists of eliminating all the mice and blocking all the holes that could be used as entrance points.
  • Even though mice have a tendency to look for shelter inside as the temperature gets lower, they can stay indoors all year long, going out only to eat. Given their high reproduction rate, missing one or two mice can rapidly become a serious problem.
  • Damages caused by mice can not only cause structural problems and an increase of your energy costs, but they can also let other animals (raccoons, squirrels, birds, bats) into the attic, under the roof, or in the walls. The smell of their urine can also attract other animals.
  • It is common to have mice in a building causing serious damages, or that they are in direct contact with people, without ever being seen. Since mice can reproduce themselves really quickly (a female can have a first litter at only 8 weeks), a mice invasion can rapidly become out of hand. Making it important to act quickly on the process of mice removal.
