No one enjoys mouse control. This process isn’t pleasant, but it is necessary. Mice are a menace for homeowners, both in property damage and health hazards. Your parents might have relied on snap traps or rodent baits to deal with these intruders, but pest control has come a long way since then. Instead of dealing with dirt, battling bacteria or settling for subpar results, leave the heavy lifting to the experts at Toodaloo! Professional Coquitlam mouse removal services help to keep homes, commercial properties and strata environments pest-free.
There is hardly a home or business out there that is not dealing with at least one type of pest. From sneaky intruders like carpenter ants or more obvious problems like pigeons, there is something lurking around every corner. When it comes to unwanted pests, mice are just about the worst ones out there. These furry intruders have no problem creeping into homes and spreading harmful bacteria and droppings. Don’t let vermin get the drop on you when rodent control is only a phone call away. When dealing with mice, infestations are a given. These pests don’t travel alone, and this is what makes accessible pest control in Coquitlam so important. The experts at Toodaloo do not just remove current pest populations but also identifies entry points to keep them out.
Rodents are quick but even if they are out of sight, it isn’t hard to identify a sign of mouse infestation. The main indicators that you are dealing with a mouse problem are gnaw marks, torn food packages and – of course – droppings. There is no question that sharing your space with mice is dangerous, unsanitary and overall bad for your health. Rodents have terrible hygiene, leaving urine, droppings and even saliva all over the place. These are unsightly but they are also hugely responsible for irritating allergies, digestive illness and even hantavirus. Internal health hazards aside, mice can also cause structural damage. Pests tear up construction materials in order to make nests and even chew through wiring, causing electrical fires. With so many factors at play, it is no wonder that property owners want infestations dealt with as quickly as possible but there is a right way and a wrong way to get it done. Mice live out of view, hiding behind walls and in attics. Putting down poisons might mean mice falling down in these unseen areas, meaning rot and horrible smells to go along with it. Don’t trade one issue for another when Toodaloo can solve your issues for good.
There are plenty of traps and poisons on the market that claim to take care of your pest problem, but these are not always effective either. Do-It-Yourself deterrents like aluminum foil or steel wool are not enough to keep these animals out of your space while bait stations are not enough to get rid of mice. Most mouse traps can only handle a pest or two at a time, which doesn’t do much to manage large numbers. The results of physical traps are also very messy, leaving expired rodents behind. Certain property owners want to avoid the remnants of physical traps, but the consequences of chemicals can be even worse. There is no signed contract between a mouse and a property owner that they will crawl outside once poison is ingested. In fact, there is no telling where these pests might up. If a mouse should expire behind a wall or under flooring, residents are left with horrible smells and unreachable remains.
Well-rounded pest control services have bigger goals than to just eliminate mice. In order to get rid of infestations with long-term results require more that hardware store control methods. In addition to getting rid of the basic house mouse, Toodaloo provides after-care and prevention training. Something as simple as pet food can be a major attractant for rodents. Even small tips like these can help homeowners prevent a repeat performance of their infestations. Mouse control methods come in all shapes and sizes and that is why our experts are open to discussing live traps, proper placements and all manner of alternative methods to get the job done right. Don’t settle for temporary relief from rodents when a specialist is right around the corner.
