Some people may find mice cute, but the damage they can do to your home is certainly not attractive! Even worse, mice carry a variety of bacteria and diseases that are highly dangerous to humans and especially children. Mice can be found in a lot of Vancouver properties due to their adaptive nature and the comfortable weather.
Mice can ruin your wooden surfaces and also your food supplies. If you think you have mice, you first need to make sure that you are indeed dealing with mice and not rats by looking for their droppings and tracks. Each of these types of rodents requires certain techniques that are specific to their species; you do not want to waste your time or money on a technique that will not work on your specific rodent problem! Once you have confirmed that your pests are in fact mice, you will need to find out how they got into your house (usually this will be through a hole or crack somewhere in the walls of your house). These spots will need to be sealed up so that any mice cannot get back into your home.
If you are only dealing with one individual mouse, you may be able to trap and exterminate it using various kinds of commercially available mousetraps, such as spring-loaded traps, glue traps, electronic traps, or live-catch traps. These measures may not necessarily eliminate your problem, however, especially if there are multiple mice involved. Removing mice can also be personally unpleasant due to the nature of their appearance – if you do not want to deal with this, call a professional.
