Mice Exterminator Near Seattle
Best way to get rid of Mice in Seattle, Olympia, Bremerton, Tacoma & Puyallup.
Mice are a problem throughout this state. Although they used to be found more often in older homes and businesses, they have now become well established virtually everywhere. The most common small rodent that infests homes and businesses is the House mouse (Mus musculus).
Here’s how we’ll remove mice from your home:
On the initial visit we’ll do an exterior inspection of the structure to check for areas where mice might enter. We’ll also note any conditions that may be conducive to worsening the infestation. We’ll draw a diagram of the building and document our findings, providing you with a copy.
Mouse cleanout service
If there are access points or other conditions conducive to an infestation, it is imperative that these are fixed A.S.A.P. or mice problems may continue indefinitely. We also provide mice exclusion and cleanout services, so let us know if you’d like an estimate for repairing any access points or cleaning the crawl space of mice urine and fecal material.
We’ll set snap traps in the areas in which evidence of mice are found. Usually this includes the attic and crawlspace, but may also include the garage, outbuildings, etc.
After the initial visit, there are three follow-ups. Two occur on a weekly basis. The last one occurs two weeks after the 2nd follow-up. Here’s an example:
- Initial visit occurs January 3rd.
- First follow-up occurs January 10th.
- Second follow-up occurs January 17th.
- Last follow-up occurs January 31st.
At each follow-up visit, traps will be checked, dead mice removed, and traps will be re-baited with lure specially formulated for mice. If you’re having concerns in between scheduled visits, please feel free to contact us. If traps catch mice in between regular visits, we’ll perform an extra service to pick them up at no charge. On the last follow-up we pick up the traps.
After trapping is completed, a continual monthly service or every other month service is recommended for continual control and an ongoing warranty. Without regular service visits, mice will continually attempt to re-enter the building. Rodent bait stations will be placed around the exterior of the building for continual rodent population control. The building will also be covered and under warranty for a variety of other pests in addition to mice, including serious wood destroying organisms found in our state. The pests covered depend on the type of regular service you select.
