Rat poison for mice control can result in slow and painful death for the rodents that consume it. Often times it can take up to 14 days for a mouse or rat to die once they consume the poison. Mice do not choose where they die. Decaying rodents will leave a horrific odor that can last for weeks or months. Mice are not looking for water outside the attic or house to drink and die. These are only what some will tell you.

Hear Scratching? Seeing mice running around or in your home? Once this happens we recommend having a mice inspection. This may be the most important step.
The inspection phase happens like this:

3. Full written itemized estimate to solve your mice problem.
Often we get calls from homeowners about a mice infestation. They report hearing scratching in the attic or signs of mice in the basement. First instinct is to hire a pest control company to place poisons throughout your home. We have discovered a more humane and effective approach to solving a mice problem.
First thing is to Identify entry points and potential entrances of mice into your home or attic. Next you may try a live exclusion. You can do this by locating entry points and installing one way devices to get rid of mice from your home or attic and prevent them from returning. If that does not work the next line of defense is mice trapping. Traps are strategically placed either in the home, basement, or attic to capture all unwanted pest and rodents. Most importantly you need to seal of potential entrances. Mice can never be 100% prevented because like all rodents they can chew and gnaw their way into your home. However mice can be controlled and deterred from entering your home or attic. Sealing up the structure of your home will keep open run ways closed to further prevent easy access of the mice.
Many pest control companies offer quarterly or yearly treatments or poison programs. Each time you are required to pay a service fee and a treatment fee. After a years time you will end up paying hundreds and even thousands of dollars for dead mice/rats in the attic. We recommend taking a proactive approach and preventing the mice from returning with outside entry point repairs.
