Pest control pecialists in dealing with Mice

If you think or know you have mice in your property in Plymouth, Devon or Cornwall, it is extremely important you deal with the problem straight away.

Mice not only cause damage to your property but they also carry diseases that you don’t want yourself or your family to be subjected to.

First, you need to establish if you actually have these small rodents living in or around your property then you need to have them removed. Here’s how Falcon Environmental Services can help.

Click here for some mouse facts, including their preferred habitat, what they eat and the damage they can cause to your home.

How do you know if you have mice in your Plymouth property?

Mice aren’t fussy. From the inner suburbs of Plymouth to the rural areas of Cornwall, you WILL find mice. Where there is warmth and food that is easily accessible, they will find it and build a nest.

The first signs may be that you hear scratching at night. Mice are nocturnal creatures so will look for food at during the hours of darkness. Other signs that you have mice include:

  • Mouse droppings – they can excrete between 50-80 a night
  • Stains on the skirting or walls where their oily fur brushes against the wall
  • A strong smell of ammonia from their urine
  • Chewed soft toys, cushions etc
  • Gnawed holes in wood or skirting
  • Food droppings in unusual places
  • Clean tracks through a dusty area

Where do mice build their nests?

From the external outbuildings of you property to the corners of food stores and attic spaces, wherever there is a dry and dark space the mice will find it. Some of the areas to check include

  • Roof or attic space
  • Cupboards
  • Cavity walls
  • Sheds
  • Garages
  • Compost bins

But what if it is just one mouse?

What starts off as one or two can soon become as many as 60 – then you have a heavy infestation on your hands. A mouse usually lives for one year in the wild – in that time the female can produce up to five or six litters of 10 mice at a time.

In a house where they have a constant supply of food and warmth, their life expectancy increases along with the number of offspring they can produce.

We had a great service from Falcon. They were efficient. Responsive and informative. Mo (Mohammad) was really friendly, kind, efficient and gave us great information that was really interesting. We had been struggling with a hornets nest, he advised it was the biggest he had seen. He was really kind and gave a great service and they have all gone now! I highly recommend Falcon and their team, from when I called up to the end result was 5*. Khara Pierre

I was recommended Falcon to remove a wasp nest from the fascia’s which turned out to be two nests. I can’t rate them highly enough and their quick response was thoroughly followed up until completely sorted. They are honest, friendly and reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend them. It is great to support local people who are good at their work and this is a team who really deserve exactly this. Thank you.
