Newcastle Mice Control
As part of our rodent pest control service in Newcastle we offer a range of assistance to help keep Mice away from your home or place of work. Due to their similarities, mice are usually dealt with by us like rats. Mice control usually means that some form of rodenticide poison or lethal trap will be used to rid houses and businesses of these unwanted pests.
Despite this, a more diverse array of poisons are typically used with mice due to their smaller size, although bait can be deployed in much the same way. Both species are attracted to wheat and rye foodstuffs, so bait can overlap. Some combined rat and mice poisons can be found for dual infestations.
The smaller size of mice also means that electric trigger traps are viable as a lethal solution, delivering a fatal electric shock to any trapped mice via AA batteries. Non-lethal cage and release pest traps can also be placed in order to neutralise the pest and remove mice from your home.
Likewise, the mice corpses will have to be removed from the trap or poison site and nearby surfaces cleaned and sanitised once the process is complete. Dead mice can easily attract predators and can still carry diseases, even when dead. Our team will be happy to assist.

In some ways, mice are similar to rats as small, invasive, and sociable rodent pests fond of household environments. They are also hardy, omnivorous rodents that enjoy burrowing and gnawing through your property. Likewise, the main reason as to why they enter human spaces is for food and shelter. Both the Brown Rat and common House Mouse prefer seclusion, soft bedding, and cereals to eat. Likewise, they can both easily overrun a building if a substantial colony is allowed to develop unchecked.
Nevertheless, there are important differences between how the two different species behave, the types of damage they can cause, and how they can be removed or exterminated. Mice tend to be smaller, quieter, more flexible, agile climbers, and can reach sexual maturity slightly faster than the rat. They also tend to be more tied to human properties, preferring sheds and compost heaps to outdoor exposure. Contrary to popular belief, warmth outdoors in the summer or owning a (well-fed) cat will not deter mice from entering your home or business. The House Mouse (mus domesticus) is overwhelmingly likely to be the cause of a mouse infestation in the United Kingdom.
The small size of mice means that they are less likely to create holes unless completely blocked, but they can also cause serious damage to properties or vehicles as they tend to be drawn to gnawing delicate electrical wiring, even when the wire is insulated. This can prove a major (and, importantly, unexpected) fire hazard. If mice cause any other structural damage it is likely to be through shredding soft materials for bedding or creating holes, as with rats. As with rats they can also transmit dangerous diseases through urine contamination, such as the Hantavirus.
