Mice are generally nocturnal creatures. If they are in your home, while you’re up and going through your day, you normally wouldn’t hear them scurrying about. If you’re lying in bed, getting ready to fall asleep and here the scurry, it’s likely mice. Mice have an excellent sense of smell and very good hearing. A mouse’s whiskers can help to feel the surface the mouse is walking on.


To get into your home and escape the dropping temperatures, mice can squeeze through just about any crack or crevice in your home. Mice have small bodies, strong legs and virtually no bone structure. Just imagine all the places you could squeeze into without a collarbone. Because of their anatomy, a mouse only needs a hole about the size of a dime to squeeze their way in.

Mice multiply quickly. If you see one mouse scurry across your kitchen floor, there is a good chance you may have up to 20 mice in the home.

Mice tend to be discreet, and even a bit sneaky. Usually, a mouse problem is first spotted by their droppings. If dark, tick-tack shaped droppings start appearing in your home, you could be dealing with mice. If you’re still unsure, look for any holes in food boxes which mice would have chewed through. But the best way to confirm a mouse problem in your home in Southern Ontario  would be to actually spot one.

If your home has a central-vac system, be weary of mice entering the home. In the garage and through the central-vac system is one of a mouse’s favourite ways to squeeze their way in.

Mice will feed off the tiniest bits of crumbs and drops of water. Leaving food out or water in the sink is one way to invite any mice already in your home to stay a while longer. Cleaning up the kitchen and living spaces, ensuring no crumbs are left behind is a sure way to deter mice.

Having any and all crack and crevices in your home sealed up, will prevent any mice from moving in this fall. The technicians at City Wildlife Control are expertly trained to inspect your home for all the possible entry points of mice, even the tiniest crevices. Not only are the technicians experts in spotting entry points, but also in sealing them up.

4 Reasons Wildlife Removal is Better Than Extermination or Poisoning

When people find stray animals like raccoons on their property, many prefer to call extermination services or even a poisoning company. It takes care of the problem immediately since it eliminates all animal returning possibilities, preventing any similar incidents. However, wildlife removal is much more humane than hiring poisoning or extermination services. People think that this method is much slower and more time-consuming when in reality, extermination takes a long time that usually leads to an inhumane, tragic death.

During the winter months, wildlife such as bats, raccoons, and squirrels start to slow down their activity and prepare for a long drawn out period of cold weather and lack of food and water. Some of the animals go into a state of Torpor, a form of hibernation, and other semi-hibernate where they rest without moving for several weeks at a time.
