A Mice exterminator will do the job!The most common pest Toronto pest control experts have to deal with on a daily basis is the mouse. When it comes to pest control in Toronto just like with every other city in Canada but in the world mice and rodents in general are the most common one.  Before we examine what there is you can do about getting rid of mice from your home it is important to understand the house mouse.

The house mouse is common in all parts of Canada including Toronto Ontario. In general the house mouse is dusty grey in colour and measures from 10 to 15 cm in length with large ears and small eyes. In most cases the mouse tail has the same length as the mouse. The house mouse has a keen sense of touch, smell, and hearing. They can run, climb, jump and swim very well.

Mice live in houses with humans because they can feed off the same food we do but they feed on several occasions in a day. The biggest contributing factor for a mouse infestation is making food available to them. In most cases, mice are attracted to households that have food sources available.

Toronto especially the downtown of the city is very prone to mice. The reason is primarily attributed to the existence of many relatively old households. Mice will exist everywhere but they will be attracted by the food source.

In order to prevent a mouse infestation and attracting mice the best thing a pest control Toronto expert and any other expert will advise first is to eliminate the food sources. This can be achieved by keeping a clean kitchen and keeping all the food sources for the mouse out of bound.

Mice can cause damage to your home and in every place that food is stored in your home. What usually happens is that they don’t cause damage in one place but make small holes in many places. Mouse control is something you need to leave to the experts.

In addition to damage to your Toronto home, mice can cause health problems. Mice contaminate food with their droppings and their urine. They also are carriers of many bacteria that cause disease.

Mice will visit a home when the weather gets colder and it is harder for them to survive outside. You will know you have a mouse problem when you hear or see them at night because that is when they come outside to feed. The average lifespan of a mouse is 12 months. The young are born about 19 days after breeding and mature very rapidly. That is why a mouse problem can go out of hand really fast.

Mouse proof construction includes sealing any openings larger than one fourth of an inch. Steel wool mixed with caulking compound makes a good plug. Mouse experts have known for a while that the cutest members of the rodent family emit ultrasonic sounds, but nobody really bothered to listen to them very closely.

House Mouse

a house mouse

Probably the most common pest in Toronto. Mice problems can range from small to large infestations. They can become a nuance all year round. They are mostly noticed during the colder months of the year.

Characteristics

They are most active during the night time and avoid well light places. Mice thrive in dark places that are in close proximity to food sources. While mice are omnivorous their survival is primarily reliant on human settlement. Female mice can give birth to litters of 3 to 14 young at a time and up to 10 times a year. As a result mouse populations can grow rapidly if not controlled. Mice are active all year round, with more activity observed indoors during the colder months of the year.

Problems

House mice can cause damage to property, damage to stored food and most importantly be the cause of disease transmission. They are known to carry and transmit Leptospirosis, Murine typhus, Tularemia and bacterial infestions such as Rickettsialpox.

Mouse Control

While there are many over the counter options for one to use to control a mouse population, due to the fact that mice can breed fast it is advised to receive professional assistance. The first step to mouse control is to seal all possible entry points to contain the issue. Control of the existing population can be achieved through the use of glue or snap traps, or by using baits placed in tamper resistant containers.
