The field mouse is commonly a pest in semi rural homes or businesses that are next to open fields or parks.
The field mouse often moves in groups and invades peoples houses/businesses when it cools down over Autumn.
Mice need two things, warmth and food. Once inside your business they often move to the quietest part of the building example the back of the warehouse. Often semi rural homes are built on a concrete slab, and the field mice gain access though the attached garage door. Looking for warmth they make there way to kitchen. Sometimes when access allows they make their way up into the ceiling where its warmer for them.
Once in the house or business, they look for food. For businesses this can get quite costly, as you have to throw away your damaged goods.
Field mice are best managed by maintaining interior and exterior controls. These control, allow you to monitor where the mice are but also to give yo some idea of the numbers. The controls also reduce their number down too.

MOUSE CONTROL HOW IT WORKS
Successful mice control requires an inspection to acquire three key areas. These key areas are access points, trails and nests. Once these three key areas are found we use them to quickly remove your mice. Of course, we will exclude you, your family and pets from our controls. Your mice will quickly be controlled and leave your home or business.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The time it takes to do a job depends on the size of the home or business and what's involved. A three bedroom home takes an average of 40-60 minutes.
Some jobs may take longer, especially businesses, depending on what needs to be done.
IS IT SAFE?
At ACES pest control we use exclude you and business from the controls.
Mice themselves present a much greater risk to your safety than our controls, as they spread disease. For businesses they can cause costly damage to your stock. This reduces your bottom line profit. Also damaged stock can be accidentally sent out to customers damaging your reputation.
DIY MOUSE CONTROL DOES IT WORK?
Doing DIY you're up against it with mice! DIY baits are often not palatable to the rodents. This often results in the mice not taking enough of the bait and dying inside your home or business. And traps, you have clear them yourself. Who likes doing that?
And there are often a lot of mice. Can you be certain you have got them all? Remember their breeding cycle is quick, just miss one and it all starts again!
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
When we have completed the inspection we will know the access points, trails and nests of the mice.
We are happy to share this with you, so you can consider making some changes to stop this happening again.
Remember a mouse only needs a gap of your little finger to enter your home!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS MICE
Q: MICE: WHAT PREPARATION IS REQUIRED FOR MICE?
A: Nothing. This a NO preparation job
Q: MICE: THE PLUMBER SAID MICE CHEW WATER PIPES BECAUSE THEY ARE THIRSTY
A: NO! Mice don't drink water as they get moisture from their food. They chew the soft plastic mains pressure water pipes as pleasant past time. The mice are as surprised as you are when water comes gushing out of the mains water pipes.
Q: MICE: ARE EASY TO KILL, WHY SHOULD I PAY AN EXTERMINATOR?
A: True mice are stupid easy to kill. But they are rapid breeders. Without the experience of a Professional pest controller, you are unlikely to get them all. Best to trust the professional who nails all of them every time.
Q: MICE: HOW DID THE MICE GET INTO MY HOUSE?
A: Mice are stupid but predictable. For older homes e.g. villas they come up from under house around the pipes. Normally under the kitchen sink. For new homes on a concrete slab, they come in via the garage door. Uncommonly they can come in via trees touching the roof line.
