Mice pest control
There are two common types of mouse in the UK to be aware of:
If you come into contact with a mouse, chances are it’s a house mouse. Three guesses why?
These mice are known as “commensal rodents”, which refers to them living with or in close proximity to humans.
Commensalism is defined as a long-term interaction in which members of one species (ie mice) gain benefits, while those of the other species (ie humans) neither benefit or are harmed.
Field mice are much more suited to nesting outdoors, but will possibly move indoors once the weather gets colder.
Nests are often built in places such as roof spaces, under floors or in wall cavities, sheds, basements, storage boxes and wherever there is access to a good source of food and safe, warm harbourage to breed.
Outdoors, field mice will excavate burrows in which to build nests of dry grass, but they will also den among rocks and crevices.
Have been known to spread some nasty diseases to humans such as Salmonella, Listeria, which can cause food poisoning.
These nibbling nuisances have a compulsive need to gnaw to keep their incisor teeth worn down to a constant length. Electric cables, water and gas pipes, packaging and woodwork, may all be seriously damaged by mice many instances of electrical fires and floods have been attributed to them.
vermin can ruin an organisation’s reputation. If clients and customers spot evidence of rodent infestation in the premises you manage, they are unlikely to want to do business with you
