If you have mice in your home, it's very important to do the job right the first time! I have seen dozens and dozens of cases of nightmare scenarios over many years, in which
homeowners have paid pest control companies for a monthly contract that never ends. That is very costly! Do the job ONCE by a wildlife operator, NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY,
get it done, and you'll be mouse-free forever. The wildlife operator will seal shut all the mouse entry points, and that's the ONLY way to solve a mouse problem forever. The total cost
will probably run between $300 - $500 to remove all the mice and seal the entry holes shut, and it may seem more up-front than a low monthly deal, but you've got to do it right, and
then you won't have to worry about mice any more. This
cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many mice are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary,
if you need cleanup, etc.
I must reiterate that

Here are three articles that will help give you more information:

- Advice on saving money by doing wildlife removal yourself.
Guide: Why does wildlife cost what it does?
- Analysis of the wildlife control business, and prices.
Costs do vary by company. But there are 3 main principles:
1) Mouse control is highly specialized work, with unique licensing and liability risks.
2) You usually do get what you pay for, and cheap companies tend to do bad work.
3) There is no one-price-fits-all. It doesn't work that way, every mouse job is different.
Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses.
You don't want to over-pay of course. And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly. If you do it wrong the
first time, you'll just end up paying more later. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that mice cause.
Invest in your home and property by taking care of the mouse problem correctly.
Customer Email Regarding Mouse Problem:
We have never had this problem before but all of a sudden we are infested with rats. I know we have killed 14 in the last month.
We think our neighbor who moved in next door is where they originated from. They have eaten a hole through our living room wall, they are chewing the carpet in the bedroom closet,
they have chewed a hole through our laundry room. We’re not really sure where they are coming in at but we have blocked off the two holes they chewed through. We hate to use D-Con because
we have a cat and a dog. Got any suggestions because it is driving us crazy. We have mouse traps sitting around certain areas and we catch one or two but then two or three more show up.
Well, you are definitely on the right track! First of all, poison is utterly worthless, and will only make the mouse problem worse. Second, you do need to find the holes
that they are using to get in. Your problem is that you didn't find ALL of the holes, and you've got to find them all in order to permanently solve the problem. If you can't do it yourself,
and it is very hard, then you might want to enlist the services of an experienced professional.
