Frequently asked questions about mouse extermination: answers from an exterminator

How long will it take to get the mice out of my house?
The average time to exterminate mice in a house can vary depending on different factors, such as the extent of the infestation, the size of the house and the extermination methods used. In general, it can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to completely eliminate mice from a home.
In most cases, the extermination of mice requires several visits from the exterminator to ensure that all mice have been eliminated and preventive methods have been put in place to avoid reinfestation. Also, it is important to understand that even after extermination there may be dead mice in the house that need to be eliminated and preventative measures should be taken to avoid re-infestation.
After the visit of the exterminator to eliminate the mouse problem, is the house immediately habitable?

After the passage of the exterminator to eliminate the mouse problem, you will not have to leave the premises, since our products used are ecological, safe and approved by Health Canada. In reality, there is no time constraint following a rodent treatment, the poisons used do not represent any respiratory danger, these are placed under lock and key, they are only dangerous for consumption (ingestion).
It is also important to thoroughly clean the house after extermination to remove any traces of chemicals, dead mice, or waste left behind by mice. The exterminator takes care of this cleaning and if necessary, he will provide you with detailed instructions on how to clean the house safely after the extermination.
In summary, the house is immediately habitable after the extermination of mice and care must be taken to clean the house thoroughly.

Can the exterminator eliminate mice throughout the house?

Yes, a professional exterminator can eliminate mice throughout your home. The exterminator will first perform a complete inspection of the house to determine the extent of the infestation and the areas where the mice hide and roam. Next, the exterminator will develop a personalized extermination plan to eliminate mice from all areas of the home, including attics, basements, walls, and ceilings. The exterminator will use safe and effective methods to eliminate mice, such as traps, poison baits or exclusion methods to prevent mice from entering the house. Additionally, the exterminator may recommend preventative measures to prevent re-infestation, such as installing mesh air vents and sealing holes and cracks in walls and ceilings. It is important to note that exterminating mice throughout the house can take several visits from the exterminator, especially for severe infestations. The exterminator will provide detailed instructions on the steps to follow before, during and after the extermination to ensure the safety of the occupants of the house, completely eliminate the mice and prevent reinfestation.
