Mouse control is free if you do it yourself! Read the how to trap mice
page. But if you need to hire a professional, he will
have to make several service visits to your house, to inspect the house and seal shut all entry holes and set traps and remove mice. It's the sealing
of the house where the true expertise and cost comes in. Expect the final total cost of a good mouse control job
from a licensed professional to range from $300 - $1000
depending on the condition of the building and the amount of repairs necessary. A simple house in good shape is less expensive, but a big complex house
with lots of openings, or a building in disrepair, will cost a lot more.
Many people face issues with house mice and they need assistance to deal with them. Many people like to turn to the
city or county animal services to get help for free.
The city or county animal services are most of the time concerned with domestic animals and the problems that can be caused by
them. The problems they solve include dangerous dogs which bite people and cause some harmful diseases such as rabies, dogs with
uncontrolled barking, complaints about pet abuse and reports about bites.
They may not take the time to look into other problems related to wildlife since they think that it is not their jurisdiction. It is
your problem and you will have to solve it using the different methods available.
You should not expect the city or county animal service to help in any way if you have mice problems. This is why you should try other
places to solve the problem. The city council wants to protect more valued animals and not the mice since they are petty animals.
The responsibility of city or county animal service is to protect domesticated animals like dogs or cats. The government may help in rare
cases, but most of the time they do not when it comes to mice.
The right way to deal with mice is to call a pest control company. You can call them so that you can discuss the problem, get the pricing or
schedule the appointment. If you choose the right company, they will help you to remove the mice from your house completely. The company will
not set the trap and expect that the problem will solve itself. They will address the problem of the wildlife and they will ensure that they
follow the step by step process to get rid of mice and to prevent future infestation.
Inspection: the company will inspect the property and building to determine why you suffer from wildlife problems. The problem cannot be solved if
the cause has not been addressed.
Mice in your attic: when you have animals in your attic, then the company will enter the attic to identify the type of mice you have, and then they will
remove them. If there is any need to capture and move the animals, then the company will do it in a humane and safe way. The company will identify the entry
holes and repair them. The repairs are done professionally and come with a warranty. The service includes cleaning the attic thoroughly when necessary and
decontaminating the attic in order to prevent odor, pathogens and mold.
You should deal with a house mice infestation as soon as you become aware of the problem. The attic with a mice infestation can suffer shredded ductwork,
and the mice will tunnel within the insulation, making it ineffective. Chewing at the wires or tearing the insulation away from the pipes is common.
Sometimes when mice chew on the water lines, the house may be flooded.
