The house mouse (mus musculus) is one of the most troublesome pests. They are extremely adaptable, thriving under a variety of conditions in and around homes and farms.
Why is it necessary to get rid of mice quickly?
Mice are prolific breeders. They breed year-round and are able to reproduce at just 10-weeks old. In a single year, a female may have 5 to 10-litters of 5 or 6-young.
Mice carry many severe, sometimes fatal diseases including hantavirus, Weil’s disease, listeria, toxoplasma gondi and salmonella. They spread disease to humans through their urine and droppings.
They also can cause serious structural damage to properties by chewing through electrical cables, water and gas pipes etc.
Why use a professional company to remove mice?
- It’s important to achieve a complete kill of all the mice in a colony. Our technicians understand the behaviour of mice and know where to place the bait to achieve this.
- Mice are fussy feeders, they don’t eat much food and they’re more resistant to poisons than rats and other rodents.
- Mice carry disease so they need to be handled carefully and disposed of safely.
Preparation you must undertake prior to treatment
- Leave any droppings or damage for the technician to look at.
- Keep a record of where you see mice.
- Check if your neighbours have seen mice.
- Don’t feed wild birds.
- Don’t put food on your compost heap.
- Clean crumbs from under the cooker and kitchen cabinets.
- Remove any food that is left out including pet food.
To prevent future mouse infestations, you must identify and deal with the reasons you had an infestation in the first place. The following measures should be implemented.
- Don’t feed wild birds.
- Always dispose of any spilled or leftover pet food.
- Always dispose of any animal droppings; don’t put them on your compost heap.
- Mouse proof animal hutches and runs.
- Store animal food in mouse proof containers.
- Keep rubbish bins securely closed.
- Don’t put food on your compost heap.
- Keep a check on your compost heap to ensure it’s not providing a home for mice.
- Locate and fill all access points into buildings, e.g. gaps around pipes, air bricks etc.
- Remove vegetation growing on or near to the house.
How our treatment works
Mice are prolific breeders so it’s important to achieve a complete kill of all the mice in a colony. We use the latest and most effective baits and poisons to eliminate a mouse infestation. The bait is put into specially designed feeding boxes, trays or occasionally loose and installed in the correct places throughout the site to ensure the whole population of mice feed on it. It can take several days to eradicate a mouse infestation.
We make a second visit to the site to remove the bait and any dead mice for disposal. Dead mice must be buried or burned and protective gloves and a mask must be worn whilst handling them as they carry disease.
We cannot accept responsibility if any mice die in places where their bodies may smell i.e. under floorboards.

Additional services we offer
Loft insulation removal & installation
If you have mice in your loft, they will have contaminated the loft insulation with their droppings and urine. This can cause serious health issues as they carry severe, sometimes fatal diseases which can infect humans and dogs.
For a low-level infestation, we recommend clearing the droppings and spraying the affected area and loft insulation with a biocidal spray.
Price for a biocidal spray treatment from £90 +VAT
A heavy infestation of mice can cause severe contamination which makes it necessary to replace your loft insulation. Our technicians are trained to safely remove and dispose of contaminated loft insulation to prevent spreading contamination and endangering your family’s health.
Our loft insulation replacement service includes:
- Safe removal and disposal of the contaminated loft insulation.
- Vacuuming of the loft space to remove any droppings and other debris.
- Application of a biocidal spray to the whole area.
- Installation of fresh, new loft insulation.
We can only carry out this service after the mouse infestation has been eradicated.
The cost depends on the size of the loft space. Call 0800 026 0308 for a quote.
Recurring infestations of mice cannot be permanently controlled just by repeatedly using poison. Proofing a property by identifying and dealing with access points provides a long-term solution and is ultimately more cost-effective.
Our technicians understand the behaviour of mice and are trained to inspect a property to identify signs of external breaches via soffits, air bricks etc. A mouse can get through a 1cm gap. If an external entry point cannot be found, the original access point may be in an adjacent property or several properties away in a terrace, or the route may be subterranean. The technician will look at proofing individual rooms that mice can easily access such as kitchens, lofts and bathrooms by looking for breaches in conduits for cables, holes and gaps around pipes etc.
Facts about mice
House mice are grey or brown with relatively large ears and small eyes. An adult weighs about 14g and is about 5.5 to 7.5-inches long, including their tail, which is 3 to 4-inches long. Although house mice usually feed on cereal grains, they will eat many kinds of food. They eat small amounts often, nibbling bits of food here and there.
Mice have a keen senses of taste, hearing, smell and touch. They are excellent climbers and can run up any rough vertical surface. They will run horizontally along wire cables or ropes and can jump up to 13-inches from the floor onto a flat surface. They can slip through a 1cm gap.
In a single year, a female may have 5 to 10-litters of usually 5 or 6-young each. Young are born 19 to 21-days after mating, and they are mature in 6 to 10-weeks. The life span of a mouse is about 9 to 12-months.
