Mice are very agile and will try to get into your home by any means if they feel it is a good place for them to thrive. Thanks to their malleable skeleton, they can easily squeeze through holes as small as a dime. If a pencil can get through an opening in your home, you can be sure that this pest can too.

Preventive pest control measures are important in limiting the risk of infestation. Regularly inspect the exterior of your building for defects (siding, doors, ventilation openings, roof cornice, surrounding vegetation giving access to the attic, etc.), and seal them with insulating and caulking products. The visible parts of your home aren’t the only ones that need to be checked. You should also take the time to check the plumbing (pipes and ducts) that may provide an entrance for small rodents.

Frequently Asked Questions

Characteristics and signs of mice

  • Characteristics: Mice can be identified by their brown or gray coat with white belly and legs. Their body and tail can be up to 10 cm long each and they weigh between 20 and 50 grams. You can also identify them by their big ears, which are well developed in proportion to their body size.
  • Signs of mice: Urine and droppings, unpleasant odours, food eaten out of cupboards, gnawed electrical wires, black marks along walls, etc.

Mouse information

  • Family: The mouse, Mus musculus in Latin, is part of the muridae family, which also includes rats, voles and field mice.
  • Life expectancy: Mice can live up to 2 or 3 years at most.
  • Food: Mice are granivorous and omnivorous. They can eat both plant and animal foods including uncultivated seeds, vegetables, fruits, grains and even organic waste.
  • Habitat: Mice can live in various habitats including fields, woods and buildings. To protect themselves from predators, to feed and reproduce, mice often seek out enclosed, warm and humid places. This is why it is common to find mice in your attic.

Mouse species living in Quebec

  • Grey mouse (house mouse): This is the most common species found in Canada. Grey mice are found in many cities in Quebec including Montreal, Trois-Rivières, Laval, Repentigny
  • Deer mouse: These mice are often found in the countryside and are particularly fond of cultivated or wooded areas.
  • Other species of mice: In Canada, other mice that roam the territory in smaller numbers include field mice, sitka mice and white-footed mice.

Mouse habits and health risks

  • Sociability: This intruder is a social rodent. If you only find a single mouse in your house, it is either a stray… or you still haven’t discovered its nest.
  • Gestation: The mouse reproduction rate is quite high. Mice give birth to between 5 and 12 mice, four to eight times a year.
  • Health risks: Mice carry pathogens and diseases, including hantavirus, meningitis, tapeworm and Lyme disease.

What damage can mice do?

Whether entering your home, building their nests or filing and sharpening their teeth, mice can cause a lot of damage to your property.

Damage from nibbling

Mice have 4 incisors (2 at the top and 2 at the bottom) which, unlike humans, grow permanently thanks to their living pulp. This characteristic is what makes rodents nibble everything they find: electric cables, furniture, insulation materials, etc.

In some cases, this damage is only material. In others, such as electrical cables, this damage can cause short circuits or worse, fires.

Damage from nesting

An infestation never happens by chance. These small rodents often settle in your home to enjoy its comfort, often in a warm and humid place that is relatively quiet. Because they are fearful and considered territorial, they often stay in a limited area and settle close to the pantry.

Damage to the pantry

Not all mouse damage is material. They also need to eat and will attack your food supply without hesitation.

Their appetite and curiosity lead them to eat many foods every day. This can be a real problem for you since all food that comes into contact with the mouse must be discarded to avoid the risk of contamination. The longer the infestation lasts, the greater the risk of contamination. This is why an infestation needs to be dealt with as soon as possible by a mouse exterminator.

What diseases are transmitted by mice?

These pests can carry diseases and there are many dangers of contamination. Whether by being bitten, eating food or drinking water contaminated by their droppings, urine and hair, or by the indirect contamination of pets and blood-sucking insects, the risks are high.

Hantavirus

Hantavirus is spread by contact with the saliva, urine or feces of mice, as well as by inhalation of contaminated spores in the air. Fever, chills, headaches and muscle aches are some of the resulting symptoms of this virus. It also causes serious lung problems called Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS).

Leptospirosis

Leptospirosis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria of the genus Leptospira. Also known as Weil’s disease, it is transmitted through contact with water, soil or food infected with the urine of wild or domestic animals.

Salmonellosis

Salmonellosis is one of the leading known causes of foodborne infections in Canada. It is caused by a bacterial infection (called Salmonella) that is transmitted by eating food contaminated by mice during their foraging.

Other diseases

Other diseases such as the plague can be transmitted by these pests. Exposure to this type of rodent can also trigger allergies or asthma in some people.

In addition to diseases, mice are wild animals that can transmit parasites (endoparasites and ectoparasites). Our immune system is not the same as theirs and these parasites sometimes pose a higher risk to our health.

How do you know if you have mice in your home?

Noticing that you have mice in your home can allow you to deal with an infestation quickly and limit the associated risks.

The mouse exterminators at Elite Pest Control recommend paying attention to the following signs (these signs can be noted at any time, but mice are most active at night):

  • Scratching in walls, attic or seldom used cupboards
  • Abnormal vibrations in your pipes
  • Noises behind your stove, refrigerator, cold room or food storage
  • Black, greasy marks along the walls
  • Gnawed and chewed objects, such as power cables
  • Nibbled food packaging
  • Traces of excrement (similar to black grains of rice) along walls and under the kitchen sink
  • A suspicious smell indoors, similar to ammonia from urine

If you notice any of these signs or suspect an infestation, our team of mouse exterminators is here to help! As members of the Pest Management Association of Canada and the National Pest Management Association, our technicians can intervene in Montreal, in the Greater Montreal area as well as in the entire province of Quebec.

How to get rid of mice?

As you can see, having mice in and around your home is strongly discouraged. This rodent brings its share of problems, from health risks to property damage.

Early detection is important if you want to be able to take the first steps to get rid of mice. Be careful, not all prevention or control methods are the same and some can be dangerous if they are misused. As pest control professionals, we recommend taking every precaution when using traps or poisoned bait.

If the first measures used are not effective or you want to take advantage of the experience of our exterminators, we can help you permanently exterminate the mice. We have mastered all eco-friendly tracking, trapping and extermination techniques to help you put an end to an infestation, no matter how small or large.

Why decontaminate after getting rid of rodents?

After a mouse infestation, we often recommend our clients decontaminate the affected areas. Damage to insulation, leftover droppings and urine and contaminated food are some of the reasons decontamination is so important.

At Elite Pest Control, we offer pest decontamination services to guarantee the health of your home, even after an infestation.

We are licensed by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) to perform caulking services and decontaminate the premises to protect you from health risks caused by mice.
