Don't Let Bugs Get the Best of You

Problems caused by mice:

  • Mice can cary Hantavirus.
  • Mice do not get sick from Hantavirus. They can carry the virus and spread it to others through droppings, feces and saliva.
  • Hantavirus can also become airborne. When the feces of an infected mouse are disturbed or broken, the virus can stay viable in the open air for up to 3 days.
  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) has a mortality rate of between 30% and 50%. On average there are 3 cases per year reported in Canada. Symptoms of HPS start up to 3 weeks from infection, and progress to a flu-like illness. Fever, fatigue, muscle pains and shortness of breath are commonly reported symptoms.
  • There is no vaccine for Hantavirus infection. Minimizing contact with mice and mice droppings/urine is the best defense.

I called Birch to have a hornets nest removed from under my overhang. Not only did they remove a very large nest with very angry wasps, but while they were explaining what they did, they noticed an ant nest on my patio that they quickly took care of!

Frequently Asked Questions

Mouse pest control refers to the methods used to prevent and eliminate mouse infestations in homes, buildings, or other structures. It can involve using physical traps, baits, and other chemical solutions to eliminate the mice population and keep them from returning. The goal of mouse pest control is to ensure the health and safety of people and animals and to prevent damage to buildings and property.

Yes, mice can have rabies. However, it is very rare for them to transmit the disease to humans. Rabies is a viral disease that primarily affects mammals, including mice. It is primarily spread through bites or scratches from infected animals, as the virus is present in their saliva. In the case of mice, their small size and lack of aggressive behaviour make it unlikely that they will transmit rabies to humans. However, it is still possible, so if you have been bitten or scratched by a mouse, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Additionally, it is a good idea to avoid handling wild mice, as they may be carrying other diseases that can be harmful to humans.

Notice the signs of rodent activity, such as droppings, gnawed food packages, or evidence of chewing on wood. You might also hear scratching noises coming from the walls or see mice running around. If you suspect there are mice in your garage, set up a trap to catch them. Place the trap along a wall where you’ve seen signs of rodents or where you think they might be traveling. Check the trap regularly and dispose of any mice you catch. If you have trouble keeping mice away from your garage, contact us at Birch Fumigators, and one of our pest control experts can inspect your garage for mice.

The first indications of mice may be seeing droppings, hearing noises, or finding nibbled food packaging. Please contact Birch Fumigators if you think you have mice in your home so we can send a certified expert to inspect your home.

The best trap depends on the severity of the infestation. For more information on mouse traps, give us a call! Or, we can dispatch one of our mouse experts to your house to assess the problem and choose the best solution.

Yes, mice can carry diseases. Some of the diseases that mice carry include salmonella, hantavirus, and listeria. These diseases can be spread to humans if they come in contact with contaminated mouse droppings or urine. It is essential to clean up any mouse droppings and wash your hands thoroughly after coming into contact with them. If you notice mice in your home or business, it is important to contact a pest control professional to have them removed.

Yes, mice are great climbers, and they are able to climb walls, pipes, and other vertical surfaces with ease. They have strong claws and can grip small ledges and rough surfaces. Mice are also very agile, so they can quickly scramble up walls and jump from one surface to another.

Getting rid of mice can be a long process. You’ll need to set traps and check them daily. Birch Fumigators provides a variety of mouse removal services. We’ll dispatch a knowledgeable expert to your house to examine the problem and recommend the finest course of action.

If you’re suspecting a mouse infestation in your property, there are a few telltale signs to look for. Mouse droppings, often the most noticeable evidence, are small, dark, and rod-shaped, resembling a grain of rice. These are typically found in areas where mice have been active, such as cupboards, drawers, or near food sources. Another common sign is gnawing marks on food packaging, furniture, or structures, as mice tend to gnaw on a variety of materials. Additionally, you might notice tracks or runways where mice repeatedly travel, often identified by the accumulation of droppings, smudge marks from their oily fur, or footprints in dusty areas. If you hear unexplained sounds, particularly at night, such as scratching noises inside walls or ceilings, it could also indicate a mouse presence. Lastly, if your property has a musty odour, especially in enclosed areas, it could be caused by a mouse infestation. These signs are usually good indicators of mouse activity, but if you’re uncertain, it could be beneficial to call in a professional pest control service for accurate identification and treatment.

Some early signs that you may have mice include:

  1. You hear strange noises coming from your walls or ceilings, especially at night. This is likely the sound of mice running around or gnawing on something.
  2. You find small, black pellets of mouse droppings in your home. These are usually found near where the mice are nesting or where they have been feeding.
  3. You see mouse holes or gnaw marks on food packaging or in furniture. Mice like to nest in small, dark places and will often gnaw on things to create nesting material.
  4. You find mouse traps that have been triggered but don’t contain a mouse. This means that a mouse has been in your home and has been trying to find food.
  5. You notice a musty smell in your home. This is likely due to the presence of mice, as they tend to leave behind urine and feces where they nest.


If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to take action to get rid of the mice before they cause more damage to your home or spread disease. Mice are attracted to food sources, so be sure to keep your food storage areas clean and free of crumbs. If you notice signs of mice in your home, contact us at Birch Fumigators, and we will be happy to help you get rid of them.
