Mice Pest Control Wellington
Mice are nocturnal (active at night) and exist closely with man. Humans create the ideal environment for Mice by providing a constant source of food, water, warmth and shelter. They are prolific breeders, producing up to 8 litters (4-6 young per litter) each year.
Mice are called social or communal pests. This means they live in family groups… where there is one there are more!
They spread serious diseases, including salmonellosis (food poisoning), plague, leptospiros and rickettsial pox.
Mice carry ticks, fleas and other ecto-parasites, continually gnaw on wiring and ducting causing expensive damage to buildings, and cause a great deal of anxiety for occupants of infested buildings.
Mice Pest Control Process
The best methods to control a mouse population are:
Usually baiting is the most cost effective and thorough way to deal with a Mice problem. When using baits it is important to choose the right bait for the job, place bait where Mice travel, place enough bait to get rid of the problem and use tamper-proof bait stations where safety is a concern.
There are countless deterrent and repellent products out there. It has been proven that sonic, ultrasound, odour and scaring products have very limited effectiveness against Rats and Mice. Where baits are not allowed, or if it is suspected there is only a very small Mice population, there are snap and mechanical traps available that are an economical, easy to use, and usually effective way to capture Mice.
