Mice Infestations: Protect Your Home and Business


Mice can cause significant disruption to your home, chewing through various materials, leaving droppings, contaminating food, and even damaging insulation, piping, doors, and floorboards.


Commercial properties, especially those handling food products such as restaurants and shops, face fines and legal action if a mice infestation leads to breaking legislation.


Protecta Pest Control provides effective mice control in Chesterfield and Sheffield for domestic and commercial properties. Our traditional trapping methods help you manage your mice infestation quickly, efficiently, and humanely.

Our Mouse Removal Process

Mice are incredibly crafty, born survivors, and their adaptability often renders DIY solutions ineffective, resulting in wasted time and money. Due to their behaviour, it's crucial to use a professional to prevent the problem from worsening.


Our mice pest control service begins with a thorough survey of your home to determine the extent of the active infestation and the entry points. Common entry points include air brick vents, gaps under doors, or ingress points in a loft.

Utilising extensive trapping, rodenticides, wildlife cameras, and proofing techniques, we can effectively eradicate a mouse population in your home.

Types of Mice Found in Your Home


If you're experiencing a mice infestation and want to identify the type of mice in your home before contacting us, use the guide below. If you're still unsure, don't worry! Call us on 07398 674924 for more information or to book a mice control treatment.


House Mouse

House mice are found all over the UK in urban and rural areas. They are often mistaken for rats, but they have smaller ears, tails, and bodies, which allows them to squeeze through holes and cavities that rats would be unable to. They range in colour from grey to brown and are capable of climbing.


Field Mouse

Field mice are found in rural areas and are similar to house mice. However, their ears and eyes are even more prominent relative to their size, which is one of the ways technicians can identify them.

Dangers of a Mice Infestation


It's essential to act immediately if you have a mice infestation in your home. Mice carry diseases transferable to humans, wreak havoc on electrical cables and loft insulation, and defecate and urinate everywhere.

Diseases
  • Mice carry a range of diseases, such as Hantavirus, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis, Plague, and Tularemia. Many of these diseases are transferred through their urine and faeces, often via food contamination.
  • Damage

    Mice can cause severe damage to an area they've infested, including gnawing on wooden beams in your attic, electrical cables, and food packaging. If you operate a business and mice have damaged your stock, it can be very costly to replace.


    Fire Risks

    As mentioned above, mice often damage electrical cables through gnawing behaviours. When they chew through the wires, it can cause electrical faults and fires.


    Disturbed Sleep

    Mice are nocturnal creatures, which means they are usually more active at night. You may hear mice in your cavity walls or your attic while trying to sleep.
