Mice Control South Africa

Quickly get up to 5 quotes from independent PRO's that's near you

The first European colonists brought mice to South Africa, and they have been a problem ever since.

Mice can multiply and cause significant property damage by gnawing on materials. They can also contaminate food and other items because of the droppings they leave behind. 

The mites are especially dangerous because they can get into your home through the walls, window frames, and other areas that you would not think of. And, their droppings have been linked to potential asthma triggers in youngsters. 

Mice are destructive and have been known to start house fires by gnawing through electrical cables.

Not only can unchecked mouse infestation result in extensive damage and the spread of severe infections and germs, but it may also produce parasites that follow a not-so-innocent family of mice.

The Pest Control PRO’s are the right people to contact when worried about a mice infestation. The PRO’s employ strategies like methodical baiting in specialized facilities that are tamper-proof and species-specific. This is performed only after identifying the pests. 

Presence of mice in your home or workplace

Your home or workplace may be the ideal location for mice to eat and sleep.

Mice are most active during the day, so they prefer to stay hidden when you are not around. Finding a mice infestation based on signs of activity left behind by the rodents is frequently more straightforward than attempting to find actual mice.

If you suspect that there are mice in your home, contact the Pest Control PRO’s as soon as possible. Professional treatment right away might help minimize the length of time it takes to eliminate an infestation successfully.

Signs of mouse activity on your South Africa property

Droppings 

Mice produce 50-80 droppings per night, tiny and black (about 3 – 8 mm long). Look for faeces on the floor, particularly in corners and cupboards or beneath sinks. Mouse droppings are unsightly to discover but can spread infections by carrying them inside. 

Smudges or smears

Mouse fur brushing against walls, floors, and skirting on frequent trips causes these stains. You might notice marks of darkness around holes or along the edges of your rooms.

Urine and urine pillars

Mice pee on everything they walk over to keep track of the places they’ve been and as a way of leaving messages for other mice. Body grease, debris, and urine form tiny mounds up to 4cm high and 1cm thick in established or severe infestations.

Scratching noises 

Mice often make loud noises, including scraping noises, at night when they are most active. Listen for noises between partition walls, beneath floorboards, in false ceilings, basements, and lofts.

Nests

Mice make nests out of easy-to-shred materials like newspaper and fabrics, as well as other soft materials. Check lofts, suspended ceilings, cavity walls, under floorboards, and behind fridges. You are likely to find young mice in the nests.

Footprints

You can see tracks and tail marks in dusty settings such as unoccupied lofts and basements. Sprinkle flour, talcum powder, or china clay throughout the home to look for signs of activity the next day.

Live or dead mice 

Mice will be active during the day, so detecting a mouse at night may indicate a severe infestation.

Strong smell

Mice urinate frequently, and their urine has a distinct ammonia-like odour. You may detect a strong odour in the vicinity of the leading site of action in confined places. This smell may remain for extended periods (even after removing an infestation).

Common Mice in South Africa managed by The Pest Control PRO’s

House Mouse (Mus Musculus)

In South Africa, the most frequent mouse is this one. They have a pointed nose and tiny round ears. Some domesticated mice are available on the pet market. Mice have a body  7-10cm long and grey-brown. Their unpredictable diet practices make them more challenging to treat than other rodents.

Striped field mouse (Apodemus agrarius)

Although it’s not the typical pest, the zorro rat deserves mention. They reside primarily on dunes and in fields. On farms, they build hay or grass nests. They are farm pests that eat animal feed.

The coat is dark brown with a black dorsal line. Adults are around 12cm long and have tails of 9cm.  You may identify these mice from the evidence collected in an attempt to manage them. Because these mice seldom feed on conventional rodent baits, creating special bait is necessary for them.

How do mice get into your house or workplace?

A mouse may enter your home or business in a variety of ways. Mice are strong and agile, and they can sprint and leap great distances and climb almost every surface. 

The most frequent ways that mice enter your home are as follows:

Pipes and cable paths

Mice can gnaw through a hole if they can’t fit through it, and their sharp and powerful teeth will give them the tools to chew at a chosen spot until they can squeeze through (they may even gnaw through effectively to consume quickly). 

Mice may access cables, phone lines, ceilings, floors, and other structures adjacent to one another because they are numerous. Mice are also strong swimmers, allowing them to enter via drainage systems.

Food pallets

Locations where food and shelter are readily available attract mice. So, a food production facility is heaven on earth for them! Once the food is transported and given out, mice may simply ride along with the packages to get there.

Through the roof

Because house mice can easily climb walls of 2 meters, they may quickly scale your roof and enter your property.

Through holes or gaps 

Mice may get into your home due to gaps in the basement, open holes in old or new pipes, structural concerns such as deteriorated flooring and air vents.

Mice on your property are a serious problem in the following ways

Spread diseases

Mice droppings and urine trails are some of the most common reasons for mice-borne illnesses. These diseases can be acquired through direct contact or, in rare cases, when the dust is disturbed.

Mouse droppings and urine can cause a variety of illnesses, including the hantavirus.  They become disease carriers after infection, bearing the disease in their droppings, saliva, and urine. 

Mice are responsible for the spread of a variety of illnesses, including:

  •  E. Coli
  • Lyme disease
  • Murine Typhus
  • Rickettsial Pox
  • Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis

Damage

Mice gnaw on items to wear down their teeth, since their incisors grow continuously. Mice also gnaw on specific locations to gain access to nesting areas or areas containing food. This might be anything from wooden surfaces like:

  • door frames 
  • skirting boards
  • drain pipes
  • indoor plumbing

Mice can chew on wire and cable insulation, leaving the rubber casing open, which can cause short-circuits and fires, and nibble at automobile wiring, resulting in high financial costs.

How do the Pest Control PRO’s deal with infestations of mice?

Seasoned professionals can spot hot spots connected to your mice infestation.  The data may assist in the development of safer and more efficient mouse eradication techniques. 

This reduces the risk of secondary poisoning and adverse effect on non-target species. South Africa Pest Control PRO’s follow proper mouse management procedures and believe in preventative measures over corrective actions.

Mice are tiny, fluffy, and some people may find them adorable. They are rodents and will never be less than perfect. They have a poisonous bite that can destroy stored goods and spread diseases similar to their rat cousin. 

Mice may appear to be tiny, but they have a tremendous punch in large social groups.

The Pest Control PRO’s recognize that not all mice are pests, and not every dropping that appears to be mouse droppings are mouse droppings. 

Rodent PRO’s in South Africa can detect significant symptoms that signal a specific rodent species, insect, or mammal and treat them appropriately. 

Rather than relying on applying a predesigned bait without regard for its species or compatibility, their customized methods fit each pest’s specific needs.
