Mouse extermination – taking steps toward treatment

When winter arrives, rodents, intelligent creatures with a keen sense for survival, will try to take refuge in homes and buildings where it is warmer.

A home, commercial, institutional, or industrial building each presents excellent living opportunities for them to thrive and survive the cold winter months.

If you think you have detected the presence of mice, please call a specialist for help as early as possible. To get rid of mice, you must act quickly, as these rodents reproduce quickly. Left unattended, mice can increase and spread, leading to a possible infestation.

For a complete and thorough examination of a potential mouse infestation, it is strongly suggested to contact a certified specialist immediately after initial detection.

Types of buildings we service

We offer rodent control services, a free estimate, and a guarantee for the following:

  • Single and semi-attached family homes
  • Cottages and country houses
  • Commercial buildings
  • Apartment buildings (for individual tenants or property owners)
  • Industrial buildings (industrial extermination)
  • and finally, institutional buildings

There are several species of mice commonly found in Montreal buildings

  • Gray (the most common)
  • Sylvester
  • Sitka
  • Waterfalls
  • White-footed
  • Northern grasshopper mouse
  • Harvester Mouse

Of the above-listed mice, the three most common species are the deer mouse, the white-footed mouse and the common house mouse. Also worthy of mention is that the Norway rat has become the most common and widespread mouse found across the city of Montreal.

Physical characteristics of the most common mouse species and its mode of reproduction

The gray mouse can be identified by its pointed muzzle, large ears, brown back and dark gray belly, slender paws, white toes, and long tail.

At full maturity, they can weigh between 10 and 50 grams, and their body can measure between 155 m and 170 mm, up to 20 centimetres (including the tail).

They multiply very quickly, carry diseases, and reach sexual maturity quickly. This is particularly so with females, that can produce up to 15 litters per year.

Associated disease, bacteria, and virus risks to humans

Almost all mice carry germs, diseases, bacteria, viruses, and other health risks to humans that occupy the same living space as this rodent. Rodents carry germs like Weil’s disease (or leptospirosis), for example, which is a disease that is spread via their urine.
Although reported incidents of significant sickness due to contact with mice are not a major problem in Montreal, there are nonetheless risks of contracting diseases from them.

That said, anything edible that it comes into contact with, that a human later consumes can lead to very undesirable illness. Some signs you may be ill due to contact are headaches, muscle aches, lack of appetite, chills, and more.
In some cases, these diseases can be transmissible from human to human and, in extreme (yet rare) cases, be fatal.

Other common diseases associated with mice include

  • Hantavirus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Parasite transmission

We have the experience to make the best use of mouse traps (both mechanical and non-mechanical), ultrasonic repellent where necessary and bait stations.

Note: Our methods are always carried out as humanely as possible.

Mice, rats, rodents, and humans – a bad combination for your health

Rodents like mice (and rats) carry diseases and other infectious diseases caused by their gathering in and around sewers, drains, and other sources of waste. They will come into contact with a wide variety of potentially very harmful infectious diseases and bacteria that can be a health risk under the right circumstance.

As mice have a lifespan of up to 18 months, assuming they have access to food and shelter with a lack of predators, there are many, we repeat, many opportunities for them to wreak havoc in a person’s home or place of work. One mouse can lead to many problems, you do not want to share your living space or workspace with them, we guarantee it!

A classic example: A restaurant with a mouse problem

A simple yet straightforward example is a classic scenario of a restaurant that mice have infested.

This could not only be a disaster for the business owner in terms of costs associated with contaminated food and potential loss of reputation but, worse, a legal liability should someone become very ill due to consuming food that has been contaminated due to feces or urine contact.

There are several reasons why it is urgent to call a pest control company experienced in dealing with Montreal mice. Exterminateurs Associés Inc. can demonstrate a proven track record that we know exactly how to exterminate mice properly once and for all.

Simple habits like closing all doors and windows when the colder months arrive will help prevent their spread. Keeping entryways closed, especially in the case of commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings, is the first treatment any exterminator should recommend.
