Nobody wants a mouse in their house, let alone a dozen. Yet, a small infestation of a few mice can quickly overrun your home. Content to live outside in the summer, these rodents often infiltrate your house when the weather begins to cool.

General information about mice
Deer mice are nocturnal. They are excellent climbers. During the colder months, they frequently enter homes, garages, sheds, and occasionally stored RVs and other infrequently used vehicles. In colder weather, the house mouse moves from its outdoor home, following warm air and food odours into your home.
How mice live and reproduce
Most mice prefer forested areas, pastures, and grassy fields. However, they often like to live with you for warmth and access to food. Mice can reproduce up to 8 times a year, with an average of 6 mice per litter – these rodents can quickly become a serious problem.
What types of mice are found in Northern Alberta?
The deer mouse and house mouse are the most commonly found mice in the Peace Region. However, the vole, a close cousin to the mouse, can cause issues outside with burrowing.
How do I tell if I have a mouse infestation?
While they prefer to hide, you may see them running along walls or scurrying away from a usually-undisturbed hiding spot. And, though they're often quiet, they make distinct noises that can be audible to human ears. You can also look for footprints, gnaw marks, and damaged food packaging.

With us, you can go back to sharing your home and business with the people you love, not the pests you don’t.

Mice can spread diseases, so act quickly and call us today. Their high reproduction rate makes it more challenging to control the longer you wait.

Mice may damage food and furniture. The damage to upholstered furniture used for nests or nesting materials can be extensive in unoccupied summer and vacation homes.

Deer mice are rarely a problem in urban or residential areas unless the homes border wooded areas, such as parks. They are common in rural areas and rustic suburban areas.

In urban areas, house mice commonly come in from other structures via utility connections or other parts of the same building. Mice are commonly brought in, in commercial facilities with supplies and equipment. They are a nuisance for damage by gnawing and eating and contaminating stored food.

Health Risks from Mice

Though unlikely to bite humans, mice can harm human health, potentially carrying and spreading diseases through their waste and presence. They’re attracted to warm places with consistent food sources and only require a dime-sized opening to access any potential home.

  • Deer mice are structural pests in rural, summer, vacation, outbuilding, shed structures and suburban homes in or near wooded areas. They are of medical concern because they are the primary carriers of hantavirus.
  • House mice are also of human health importance as disease carriers.

Do what many farmers do and get a cat if no one in your family has an allergy.

Mouse traps are the next best way to eliminate mice that have moved into your home if you try to remove them yourself. Place mouse traps along walls and behind trash cans.

We recommend you make it easy for yourself and just give us a call.

Voles are smaller than mice with shorter tails, larger eyes, and more petite, less prominent ears. You may find voles or mice in the house. However, it is more likely a mouse than a vole. Mice thrive anywhere with food and shelter. In comparison, voles eat plants, vegetables, berries and insects. Everything in your yard can be a source of food.

Unlike mice, a vole’s damage is usually isolated to the outside. Voles cause damage to young trees and wood features. This chewing causes girdling and results in dieback and even plant death. In gardens, voles gnaw on roots and growth, causing damage to plants. Voles can also create unsightly burrow holes along your walkways.

Mice and voles don’t hibernate. Both rodents are active year-round and look for food wherever they can find it!
