If there is one thing that is always true, this is it: once our customers find they have mice in the house, they want to get rid of them – and fast.
So, the question of, how to get rid of mice fast is always a top priority concern.
What is strange, then, is that, once this question has been asked, most people then do something that is guaranteed not to achieve the intended results. They buy some mouse poison.
When it comes to the best way to get rid of mice fast, mouse poison is not even at the starting gate, let alone winning the race.
The best way to get rid of mice from your home fast is to prevent them getting into it. It is to mouse proofing your living space.
More on that later, but first back to mouse poison, or mouse bait, or rodenticide, as it is also called.
Does mouse control have to involve killing?
Over the last 100 years or so, humans have developed a two-pronged attack on rodents.
- We have decided they need to be killed.
- We have developed lots of chemicals and traps to did this.
We have developed industrial responses to challenges we face – and mouse control is one of those challenges. We have also developed a view, now being challenged, that we have the right to kill other animals.
When it comes to mice control, the problem is, killing mice does not work. Here’s why:
- They have evolved to withstand baiting. So, you might make an initial dent in a mouse infestation but you will not get rid of all the mice.
- Mice are not stupid. They learn to avoid poisons that cause them harm. The same goes for traps.
- Mice are becoming resistant to rodent poisons. So, by putting down bait, you are actually feeding them!
Take these three points together, and it is clear that if you want to know how to get rid of mice fast, the answer is not to put down poisons or traps.
How to get rid of mice fast – the answer!
So, what is the answer? How do you get rid of mice, FAST?
It is to come to SUPERPROOF. Many of our customers have learned the hard way that spending money on mouse poisons and mouse traps does not work.
They have been there. Done that. Felt the frustration.
The answer is, quite simply, to block all the ways into your home, so mice can’t get in. Mice are using your home as a giant larder, foraging for food at night, then returning to their nests in walls, floors, and ceilings at night to snooze.
Mouse proofing to get rid of mice
If mice can’t get in to your living space, they have lost their food supply. If they don’t want to starve, they need to move to another property that is not mouse proofed to find food.
At that point, the mice are gone. No more mice. What is more, no mice have been killed. No wildlife has been put at risk by eating poisoned prey (the mouse), and no rotting mice have been left in your walls, making terrible smells.
Because, SUPERPROOF can mouse proof a property in one day, that means from the moment we have finished our work, you will see no more mice.
That is how to get rid of mice fast!
