Apex Pest Control, a Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK, based pest control service provider is warning both homeowners and business owners that mice are fast becoming a major problem in the Leeds area.
Nobody wants to have to call upon the services of a pest exterminator, but at this time of the year when mice invade houses and other properties looking for food and warmth, it is often necessary. It does not take long for a small problem to become a big one and the signs of an impending infestation are not always obvious to the untrained eye. Having a property inspected by pest control experts such as Apex can help prevent an escalation of the problem.
Adrian Gilliston, a Leeds homeowner, said, “My next-door neighbour had mice and had to call an exterminator to deal with the problem. I was worried that if it had happened to him it could happen to us too. He used Apex Pest Control, so I called them to come and inspect my house. I’m glad I did. It turned out that we had mice too and we just hadn’t seen the signs.”
The signs are not always obvious and by the time they do become more evident, it can mean there is a real problem that only an exterminator is capable of dealing with. Mice in a house, or any other property, are a real threat and one that should not be ignored.
Not only are they a biological hazard as they leave droppings and urine wherever they roam, but they are also a fire hazard. Mice, like most rodents, like to gnaw on things. Apart from the general damage they do to furniture and other fixtures and fittings, they will gnaw on and damage electrical wiring and that is potentially a major fire hazard.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so the saying goes, and that is very true of pest control. Obviously, at the first sign of trouble, it makes sense to call in an exterminator but it is also wise to have a property proactively checked by professionals.
An Apex Pest control team can conduct a survey of the property and check for the tell-tale signs of a mice infestation. They will look for evidence of mice droppings, nests, damage, tracks, holes, etc. They will also inspect for access points that will need to be sealed to prevent future problems occurring.
Once that survey is complete, if the signs are there, they will put out bait in various locations that have obviously been visited by mice. In addition, they will bait other areas that their expertise tells them are likely to be visited by mice.
The baits all contain second-generation rodenticide and they will be placed very specifically to prevent human or pet contact. In order to accomplish this, tamper-resistant bait stations are used wherever possible.
Apex will conduct several follow up visits and will remove any dead mice in order to avoid problem odours and potential insect infestation. The scale of the problem will determine the number and the frequency of the follow-up visits.
David Evans, an Apex Pest Control technician, said, “It’s not just the Leeds area that we deal with, Apex offers mice pest control across the whole of Yorkshire. At this time of the year, we have always had to deal with infestations, but this year is worse than usual. Homeowners and business owners need to be aware of the scale of the mice problem and how to take steps to prevent major problems by having a professional inspection.”
Mice are an unwanted and unwelcome problem that nobody wants to experience, but it is better to tackle the problem proactively rather than wait. Customers concerned about potential, or existing, mice problems and wishing to find out more about what Apex does and how they do it can visit the company website or contact them on the phone or through email.
