Rodent Traps & Removal Services in Durham & Greater Toronto area

We will discuss with our clients and make suggestions for using the most effective and environmentally friendly rodent control program to meet their needs, including the use of baits, traps, tracking powders to prevent the entry of rodents into the building going forward.

The Probelm with Rodents

Mice are where people are, feeding on human food and reproducing at unprecedented rates and hiding in homes and other buildings. They are the most problematic pest because they cause high dollar value destruction and cause electrical fires inside homes. Regular and thorough housecleaning is crucial to reduce the shelter, food and water availability that these rodents require to survive.

There are highly effective methods to exterminate these rodents including sealing the exterior cracks and holes they use to access homes. Uncluttering will reduce the places they can hide; covering vents with heavy gauge wires and preventing access to food sources such as food scraps and pet food is also important to keep these rodents at bay.

Rats and Mice Damage Homes

Rats and mice can cause structural damage to homes, apartments, offices, and virtually any type of building through gnawing, nest-building, and defecation

Mice will chew on just about anything that they see as useful in building their nests. This could be wood, paper, cloth, books, etc.

A mouse will gnaw and burrow into upholstered furniture or seats of cars to create a hidden, snug nest.

Insulation is not safe from mice either. They will tunnel into insulation inside walls and attics, either to make a home or to gather soft materials for their nests.

Mice also will chew on the insulation around wires. This has been known to cause a real threat of fire.

Mice will even build their nests in large electrical appliances, again chewing on or through insulation and wiring, which can cause the appliance to short circuit, malfunction, or lead to the risk of fire.

Rats and Mice Destroy Food

Mice are not very fickle when it comes to food, they will feed on a vast array of stored food items or pet foods.

If a food item comes in a cardboard box or paper wrapping—it’s a double bonus for the mouse. The packaging can be used for nesting and the food inside for eating.

While they are in the pantry or cupboard, the mouse also will contaminate food with their urine, droppings, and hair.

Although it eats only about three grams of food per day, it is estimated that a mouse contaminates and destroys 10 times more food than it eats as it leaves its droppings, nibbles on packages, and leaves numerous partially eaten foods behind, leaving all of it inedible and unfit for humans or pets.

Even without food being inside, a mouse will gnaw on plastic containers and wooden items, and shred stored paper—paper towels, napkins, etc.—for their nests.

Mice and Rats Nests

The more hidden away and undisturbed an item or area is, the more likely a mouse or rat is to see it as a comfortable, secure home. Then, when that mouse travels around your home seeking nesting materials, food, and water, it will leave behind urine trails and fecal droppings.

Not only do these contaminate the surfaces and foods on which they land and cause the potential spread of disease, but they also leave a scent trail for other mice—letting them know this is a great place to live.
