The Mus Musculus better known to you and me as the house mouse generally like to spend most their life indoors with extended family of 5 or more.
They spend 70% of their lives off the ground creating nests in wall cavities and attics.

Large infestations can develop quickly from a single pair of mice a mouse can be sexually mature from only 5 weeks old and can produce up to 10 young every 21 days after they reach maturity.

Even the smallest mouse can sound like an elephant in your attic and if left can develop into a larger problem to solve.
Knowing what you’re looking for can be a great help which is why it is always better to get the experts in. They have the knowledge and the right tools for the job.

Did you know that the over the counter Bait that you buy in hardware stores doesn’t have enough poison to kill the mice unless they digest it all, and it does not taste very nice which is why it doesn’t always work, and why they have a tendency to go off and die in the walls where you can’t get at them. Professional bait has a much higher dose and is designed to taste great so that they get enough to do the job. Call us today for a Free quote over the phone 01-4511795
