Customer reviews

Where do mice live on my property?

Mice usually live on the ground and nest in burrows, but are agile and good climbers, which is why the most common place to find mice on your property is in warm, dry dark places such as an attic, crawl space, cellar, or in cupboards. The type of mouse that we see most often is the house mouse (also commonly known as a field mouse) and this is especially true if you live close to parklands, woodlands, or water. 

These mice may look cute but they can cause serious problems to the health of anyone that occupies your building. Their faeces contain bacteria that are harmful to humans and can cause allergies and breathing problems if left untreated, and they also trail dirt attached to their bodies as they scurry around your property. In addition to this, they’re fond of gnawing and scratching at cables, wires, skirting boards, cupboards and plasterboard, causing considerable damage to the building itself

If you do discover mice on your property then call us out to dispose of them. We’ll make sure that we remove all traces of them and we can even treat the area to ensure that you don’t get any new unwelcome lodgers. Speak to our expert mice exterminator and mouse removal team today.

What can I do to prevent mice?

If you can block their entrance to your home then that’s a great start. Try putting the following steps into practice:

  • Store all food items in airtight containers and keep them away from walls
  • Keep all rubbish covered in bins with tight-fitting lids. This stops odours that attract mice from escaping
  • Sweep up crumbs or spills immediately after they happen as this will reduce the smells that mice are attracted to
  • Sprinkling cayenne pepper or chilli flakes around the exterior of your building – your windows, doors and cracks – will deter mice from entering your property

If you’ve tried all these methods but are still finding evidence of mice on your property then speak to our mice pest control experts for a no-obligation quote on removing them.

Frequently asked questions

How can Acorn help me with mice and rodents?

Acorn is a fully licensed, fully insured, and fully accredited service with over 30 years of experience in providing effective solutions to eradicate and prevent rodent infestations. Each mouse or pest query or concern is well-considered and thoroughly surveyed by our expert team to ensure that your property receives a decisive course of action to remove your rat infestation problem.

How much is pest control for mice?

This all depends on a number of factors, including the number of mice on the property, where they are located, how much damage they’ve done to the building’s infrastructure, and what we have to do to permanently remove them. What we can promise is that we’ve been serving the North West and Yorkshire for over 30 years, so we have a provable track record of doing a great job at competitive prices. Give us a call and find out for yourself!

Are mice and rats the same?

Although from the same family, rats and mice are different in terms of their body shape, size, droppings and nest locations. Rats are bigger with smooth tails, whereas mice are much smaller with proportionately longer thinner tails. Get in touch if you have a rodent problem that you need sorting.
