Mice & Rats

Mice can at times be harmful rodents, damaging and eating crops, causing structural damages and spreading diseases through their parasites and feces.

In North America, breathing dust that has come in contact with mouse excrements has been linked to hantavirus, which may lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS). Rats are typically distinguished from mice by their size; rats are generally large muroid rodents, while mice are generally small muroid rodents.

Unlike Jerry the mouse, not all mice are friendly. Instead, most mice and rats are carriers of the deadliest diseases on the planet. If you see a mouse or a rat in your house, it is time to give Glen Environmental a call immediately.

Why do I need a pest removal service for one mouse?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions for any pest removal service provider. The simple reason why you need a pest removal service is that you cannot really judge the exact extent of rodent infection in your house. Rats and mice can easily crouch up in confined spaces of your house like wall openings, plumbing as well as eavestroughs.

You can remove one mouse by yourself. However, it is advisable to get your house a thorough checkup for the rodent infection so that our team removes all the possible mice and rats. The team also plugs the holes and vents through which the rats/mice may enter your home again.

How do I know if my house is infected by mice/rats?

Seeing a mouse/rat in your house is the primary way of noticing the rodent infection. However, you might not be lucky enough to notice the infection in the first instance. In fact, most people notice the infection during the very late stages. Here are a few signs that might help you catch the prospects of a rodent infection early on.

  • Exposed and cut-off wires: Rodents usually sharpen their teeth over wires. If your computer/TV stops working overnight due to damaged wiring, it is time you get your house checked for rodent infection.
