If you’ve spotted a mouse, you need to act fast.
There’s never just one mouse. If you spot one scurrying along a skirting board, find their droppings or hear them gnawing in the night, you need to act fast before they get comfortable.
If you’re unfortunate enough to see one, you can guarantee there’s a dozen or more you’re not seeing.
All it takes is a hole the width of a biro (5mm) for a mouse to get into your property, and all it takes is two mice to breed 100 mice.
Mice breed rapidly.
These small secretive creatures don’t need water to survive, letting them quietly grow enormous families around a food source without you realising. The more mice are in your property, the more they spread urine, droppings and disease.
Do Mouse Traps and Poisons Work?
Yes, but only professional-grade desiccating poisons are guaranteed to work. Those can only be used by regulated companies. Unfortunately, shop bought poisons are highly ineffective and the mice that they do kill can become infested with flies in hard or impossible to reach places.
Long-term mouse control is achieved with a three-step process:
We start with the investigation, where your mouse exterminator will thoroughly inspect your home or business to first make sure we are dealing with mice and not rats, and then figure out how they’re getting into your building, how they’re surviving and whether they’ve nested inside.
Your technician will lay down an ultra-violet tracking dust to monitor the movement of mice and eliminate any guesswork.
Next, we exterminate, with professional-use-only poisons that mummify the mouse so that it doesn’t leave behind a smelly, fly-attracting corpse.
This is achieved over two visits spaced 14 days apart where your pest control technician will top-up the poisons. Poisons will be placed in strategic and discreet spots within your property using tamper-proof boxes.
Finally, your mouse exterminator will control against future infestations by mouse-proofing the site from top to bottom, and we’ll check in later to make sure you’re still mouse-free.
We offer same-day mice control treatments. We understand that everyone reacts differently when spotting a mouse in their home and you may want to get a treatment set up that same day.
If you run a business, we can do overnight treatments using glue boards, those have an immediate effect in reducing infestation levels but should be used in conjunction with a standard poison-based treatment plan.
Professional-grade poisons are more humane than shop-bought and glue boards provide a non-toxic solution providing those are checked frequently and the mouse promptly killed if caught. Only try glue boards yourself if you know you’re able to quickly kill – not doing so would be cruel and certainly not humane.
The most humane method would, of course, be to remove all routes of access to your property by filling all holes down to the width of a biro. If mice can’t enter then they will simply move on.
If mice found their way into your property once, they can do it again. That’s why we don’t just exterminate mice, we provide a thorough mouse proofing service to stop them ever coming back.
We use professional grade proofing materials to stop mice entering your home or business, never wire wool – which is flammable or expanding foam which mice can easily chew through!

Yes, mice urine can go unnoticed on food work surfaces. Mouse droppings and urine contain Salmonella, and Listeria, all of which can be transferred through human contact.
Mice are known to cause electrical fires. They can chew through electrical cables with their incisor teeth. And cause flooding or gas leaks by chewing through pipework.
London’s best-known mouse species is the common house mouse (Mus musculus). While in Surrey you’ll also find field mice.
Mice have poor eyesight, but a good sense of hearing and smell.
Mice have well adapted to London life: they’re known for eating almost all types of food scraps. They do not need water to survive other than that they get from their food.
Mice can breed all year round. A single female will gestate in 20 days with a litter of up to 12 pups producing up to 60 pups a year.
