Mouse In Your House?

Mouse In Your House?




In urban areas, mice can and will reproduce all year round due to the lovely warmth of your home and the unlimited sources of food available to them.  This means that mouse infestations can actually be a problem all year round! However, with the weather being so cold at the moment, we are getting more and more calls from customers struggling with mice problems. But do not worry, SOS Pest Control can help! 

Below we have some information about what to look out for and things you can do to protect your home from these uninvited furry visitors. 

What do they look like?

  • Mice are typically quite small
  • They have rounded ears
  • Their tails are long and thin
  • Pointed snouts
  • Can be light brown/dark brown in colouring

Signs of mice

  • Droppings
  • Scratching sounds in the loft or walls
  • Smell of mouse urine (ammonia)
  • Strange pet behaviour (chances are they will find mice before you do!)
  • Damage to food packages or storage boxes

What can you do?

The best way to avoid a mouse problem is to proof your home! 
  • Fill any access points to your home like loose brickwork, gaps around pipe entrances, loose tiles
  • Secure/remove any easily accessible insulation as mice like to use this for nesting
  • Make sure to keep all food sources securely sealed
  • Regularly clean under cookers and fridges
  • Clean kitchen sides and floors regularly removing crumbs

If you happen to see any of the above signs, then proofing will stop new mice coming into your home but it will not help with your current infestation. Plus, mice are notorious for reproducing at an alarming rate. However, SOS Pest Control can help you. We are fully trained and able to deal with any pest infestation effectively and efficiently. Give us a call today!

Pest Control During Lockdown...Again

 Pest Control During Lockdown...Again

We are business as usual, even during these strange times. 

Pests like rats, mice, squirrels and foxes are typically prevalent during this time of year. This is due to the colder weather and less food sources available to them. Whilst prevention is always better, we appreciate that these pesky pests can make their way into your home or business through the smallest crack, loose roof tile, or gap in a fence. We are on hand to deal with whatever problem you may have, removing the problem effectively and efficiently whilst keeping our team and our customers safe. We also have a wide range of prevention solutions to offer to make sure your home or business remain free from pest problems in the future. 

We are here for you and available to deal with many types of pests, observing all government guidance in place to keep us all safe.
